A NOTE FROM THE PRESIDENT 1.19.16

As you know, our three military bases in Beaufort County play an important role in our nation’s defense.  They are also an important part of the fabric of this community and generate $1.498 billion dollars into our local economy each year.

This week, we will be celebrating our Military at the 2016 State of the Bases Breakfast, where we will hear from representatives from Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, Parris Island and Naval Hospital Beaufort as well as the South Carolina Military Base Task Force.   We are thrilled to have Col. Peter Buck, Commanding Officer at Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, as our Keynote Speaker.  We are also proud to present the Military Family of the Quarter with a special honor for going beyond the call of duty to serve our country and this community.

We have a lot to accomplish this year and will need your support as we advocate for legislation on a local, state and federal level to help make this community the preferred community to invest, prosper and enjoy.

Thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you soon!
