Former lieutenant governor and past and present civic advocate W. Brantley Harvey, Jr. will bring over 65 years of memories of his life in Beaufort, the state of South Carolina, in the nation and abroad to the Verdier House, 801 Bay Street, Monday, February 22nd at 5:30 p.m.

Harvey, a practicing attorney in Beaufort since 1955, like so many of his generation had an idyllic life as a young boy in Beaufort with all the richness that Beaufort’s environment offered. He returned to the city after law school and over the years repaid the city and the state with public service. Still active in the community, many people may think they know of Harvey’s involvement in political and social issues, but his memoir “Palmetto Patriot” recounts a commitment that had a far-reaching effect that is surprising at times. Harvey will sign copies of his book after the program.

A wine and hors d’oeuvre reception begins at 5:30; the program is 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Admission for a member is $15/$25 per member/couple. Non-member admission is$20/$30 per person/couple.
