Exchange Club News

By Sam Reed

American Flag Recycling Project

As an Americanism project, the Kiawah-Seabrook Exchange Club has initiated a program to allow residents of the islands to properly dispose of worn out or damaged American flags. They may be brought to a collection area at the Seabrook Town Hall or the Lake House on Seabrook on or before the annual July 4 celebration. The Club will then see that they are properly decommissioned.

New Flag Pole

A new flag pole is being erected this May at the Freshfields roundabout. The Club joined with other Kiawah and Seabrook entities to finance the installation of the pole. The Island Choraliers are providing patriotic music for the occasion.

Welcome New Board Members

Five new Board members were elected in May: Wayne Billian, Jeannie Knowles, Tom Miller, Shirley Salvo, and Walter Sewell.

Speaking of Storms

Justin Healy, a storm protection expert, informed Club members how they might better prepare for hurricane conditions. The Club also renewed its support of child abuse prevention in the Lowcountry.
