On Sunday evening, March 30th, The Georgetown School’s friends and families came out for a wonderful casual event at Hog Heaven. The evening began with meeting and greeting friends new and old, then proceeded to eating mounds of food off the buffet. People sat around outside with their plates piled high, enjoying the music of local guitarist John Lammonds. “I always get the freshly fried chicken, stewed tomatoes, collard greens, and sweet potatoes–it’s all delicious!” said one hungry TGS supporter. Another supporter remarked, “I think Hog Heaven is becoming even more famous for their fried chicken than their barbecued pork.” The kids enjoyed different desserts including banana pudding, chocolate pudding, and apple cobbler. As the party went on, the grown-ups stood around listening to great music and chatting, while the students ran around in the back field surrounded by woods. About 65 people attended this Hog Heaven Family Fun Night. We want to thank the wonderful staff of Hog Heaven for their great service, the PTO and Lisa Haas for organizing the event, John Lammonds for the music, and Hog Heaven owner Greg Eaddy for his generosity in allowing us to use his restaurant and buffet for our school fund-raiser.
Top Lee, a freshman at The Georgetown School, presented a check for $431.75 to F.O.W.L. representative Kathy Gramet at the organization’s annual luncheon, held this year at Pawleys Plantation. The money will go toward building a new library on Waccamaw Neck. Top earned the money through a blog he created called littlesquirrelbookreviews.org, which brings in 6% of any Amazon purchase when readers of his blog click on any Amazon ad on the site. “I was scared, being the youngest person at the luncheon and one of only five men,” Top said, “But I actually had fun.” Please visit Top’s website and find out how easy it is to keep money for the new library rolling in!
