On January 27, John and Carol Clark of Wade Hampton Drive were proud of their granddaughter, Chelsea Berner, a senior at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, who presented her Senior Voice Recital

on campus at Roxy Grove Hall. Chelsea is a mezzo-soprano and sang several songs in German, Spanish, French and English. She was accompanied on piano by Mr. Stephen Morris. Fulfilling a class requirement, she is currently teaching music at a public school, as well as at a private school.  She is also a long-time employee of Starbucks.  Chelsea’s aspiration is to become a musical conductor.  Carol had the pleasure of traveling to Texas to attend the recital and she said she thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.

Maritza Schmidt of Rivers Court celebrated her birthday with friends at Olive Garden with an enjoyable luncheon. Maritza received many gifts for her birthday but I know her favorite was a video in which her grandson, Harrison, sings Happy Birthday to her — precious and priceless!

Royal Pines birthdays for the month of March are: Kathy and Bill Adams of Wade Hampton Drive.

The Beaufort Women’s Republican Club members attended a lovely tea at The Beaufort Inn and hosted by Rep. Shannon Erickson. From Royal Pines, Carol Clark, Mary Cieplowski, Maritza Schmidt and I attended the event to listen to Teddy Turner who is one of 16 Republican candidates for the first congressional district seat left vacant when Tim Scott was tapped to fill Jim DeMint’s senate seat. Teddy was an interesting, focused and enthusiastic speaker — to see or hear him and others on the slate, please check Technical College of the Lowcountry schedule. Primary elections will be held March 19.

On February 22 and 23, Friends of Caroline Hospice will be host to Bands, Brews and BBQ, an event to benefit this great organization. Activities will take place on Paris Avenue in Port Royal.

Beaufort American Legion Post 9, of which there are members from Royals Pines, is sponsoring the 15th Annual Invitational Pro-Am Golf Tournament on Monday, February 25 at The Legends at Parris Island Golf Course. This event is held to raise money for the annual USCB Baseball Scholarship awarded each year by Post 9.   The tournament will consist of four person teams with one professional golfer as a fifth player.  If you wish to enter the tournament or would like more information, please contact George Miller at 470-0928.
