I want to take this opportunity to thank the sponsors of The Village Fall Festival. The support of Publix Super Market was key to the success of the food concessions fund raiser for the Rotary Club. Providing refrigerated/frozen storage for beverages, burgers and brats came in the form of a brand new, 50 foot, Publix refrigerated trailer. Coke donated all the refreshments and the roadside banner. Local sponsors included all five of the Merrill Lynch Wealth Management teams, Four Seasons Travel and Southern Motors Honda. Contributions funded "The Rogues" band, activities for kids and a raffle prize for the Coastal Corvette Club. The South State Bank provided volunteers as concessions cashiers.

And a special thanks to all the Rotary Club volunteers and, especially, Bill Jahn for arranging to have the Shelter Box display.
