TheraVista and others team up for yard sale

TheraVista, The Lending Room and Roxanne Cheney Organizes team up again for Spring Clean for JOY 2016 on Saturday March 19th 7:30 to 10 a.m. This semi-annual ‘yard sale’ where everything is free is an opportunity for community members to go through their closets, drawers and garages clearing items that no longer bring joy or they are tired of storing for that ‘just in case’ moment. Then it is given away to those who can use the items now. Experience the joy of giving and receiving while expanding awareness about the valuable service of the Lending Room which provides medical equipment for short or long term use, to anyone for a minimum donation of $1. Donations of items in all categories from furniture, household goods, tools, clothes, etc. will be accepted up until 6 p.m. Friday, March 18th. For more info on dropping off donations, email theravista@gmail.com or call 843.812-1328. Event will be held at TheraVista, 263 Brickyard Point Road South on Lady’s Island.

Adaptive Golf this weekend at Parris Island Golf Course

The Masters are less than a month away and the flowers are starting to bloom. Are you ready to take your golfing talents to a new level this year? Practice, the right equipment, proper instruction and more practice will help make the difference. No matter your level of performance, we can all benefit from a little time outside with friends. I hope to see all of you out at the range to celebrate spring and the start of another golf season. We will be at the Parris Island Golf Club between 9 to 11 a.m. on March 19th. Bring a friend!
