We all know there’s always a first time. So with that in mind, this year the Welcome Committee decided to have a celebration in honor of our newest neighbors on April 21. Some who have been here for a short while, others moving in and lastly, a smaller group, just breaking ground.
With over 30 new folks attending, our goal was to make certain everyone mingled. And they did! A total of 82 folks graced our beautiful Water Park. Grills prepared hamburgers and brats while Oyster Harbour residents brought the sides and desserts making it a perfect gathering showing the talents of our many chefs.
Just another wonderful Carolina Day in Paradise!
April’s Bunco was hosted by Peg Rioux & Cate West. As always the ladies shared delicious treats and had a great time. Our big winner was Joann Bonnet, and she received a handmade gift from Peg which were wine glass coasters. She also won a water/fruit infuser bottle.Back to top of page
