Q: How long have you lived in Beaufort?
A: Twenty-seven years, the Marine Corps brought us here from California.
Q: Where do you work?
A: Brian was elected to the Beaufort County Council in 2008, while Angel represents the South Carolina Commission on Women, a position she received in 2010 by Governor’s Appointment and state senate confirmation.
Q: What do you like best about being a volunteer for local organizations?
A: We love volunteering through our civic group, The Exchange Club of Beaufort. Our favorite thing to do is erecting big flags for patriotic events. Between 20 to 50 of the big flags can be delivered to your next event for a small donation to our club.
We are also looking forward to hosting two or three Duke students for the Symphony Concert benefiting Beaufort Memorial Hospital Foundation next month, and also cooking a meatless dinner next month for a St. Peter’s Catholic Church Lenten Supper.
Brian said, “The best part of being a county councilman is helping constituents with their problems and being invited to read and teach students at our local schools. Last week, I was a judge at the Broad River Elementary School Pageant. It was tough, but rewarding.”
Angel said, “The best part of volunteering all these years is seeing my grown son volunteering with United Way and Beaufort Charities and having strong relationships with the wonderful children I have met through my work at the Child Abuse Prevention Association’s Open Arms Shelter.”
Q: When not volunteering, what other activities do you enjoy?
A: Spending time with our new grandson, kayaking, riding our bicycles, reading and going to the movies.
Q: What do you like best about Beaufort?
A: Having our son, daughter-in-law and grandson here, oyster roasts, high tides, interesting people, and the feel of marsh mud between our toes.
