Our hot, humid fall weather broke just in time for the 7th Annual Oyster Roast on November 3. Sunday afternoon was crisp and sunny—perfect for eating oysters under the big tent in Francis Marion Park. After weeks of careful preparation by the PTO, everything was ready: tables and chairs set up, plywood delivered, bake sale and silent auction items on display, and Will Ness playing his tunes.
There were also three propane cookers in the parking lot cranking out piles and piles of steaming bivalves! It was an amazing afternoon full of good food, sunshine, and friendship, all for the benefit of our scholarship fund.
Our leadership in this endeavor was awesome—thank you, Niki Howard, Sandy Martin, and Susie Kaminski. Thank you, students, for pitching in (even though you didn’t get to keep your tips!) and thank you, parents, for pulling together to make this the most successful Oyster Roast to date. Our gratitude to the Family Justice Center for the use of the tables, chairs, and tents.
