Oh what fun we had on Friday morning, Sept 21st.  We were graced by Bonnie Hargrove, the Director of the Center for the Arts for USC-B, along with Elaine O'Connell Lake.  Bonnie filled us in on the upcoming shows and events - how lucky are we to have Broadway shows, Children's Theatre, Adult Theatre, gallery exhibits, etc. right here in Beaufort...the list goes on with Beaufort Film Festival, Dancing with the Stars, Books Sandwiched in.   
Elaine, aka Mother Abbess,  ended our meeting with her beautiful voice singing, Climb Every Mountain from the Sound of Music - she was remarkable and touched our hearts!

Sept 29, 2023 we had the opportunity to hear the very moving story of two young people, Madison (18) and Jon Paul (19), who were tragically killed in an auto accident on 12/4/21… by a repeat offender who was driving at a high rate of speed while under the influence of drugs and alcohol.  James and Jennifer Klepesky, Madison’s parents, shared their vision to keep Madison and Jon Paul’s memories alive through creating Madison’s Miracles, Inc.  Their hearts are full of compassion.  There are so many ways you can get involved:  www.Madisonsmiraclesinc.org

Thank you to Julianne Clark and Randy Ott for teaming up for the very meaningful program.
