Last week was a great week in the office! Several of our Chamber staff members traveled to Salisbury, NC to attend the CACCE Staff Leadership Conference. They were able to connect and share best practices with Chamber executives from South and North Carolina as well as hear from speakers on a myriad of Chamber-related topics. Our team received a CACCE Communication Excellence Award for our “Coast Is Clear” ad campaign that we implemented in the wake of Hurricane Matthew in order to alert tourists and consumers that Beaufort, Port Royal and the Sea Islands were back in business again. And, our very own LaNelle Fabian won a CACCE scholarship award. I am so proud of our team!
     I hope everyone enjoyed the sound of freedom at the Beaufort Air Show this past weekend. Approximately 100,000 people were expected to attend the two-day event at MCAS in order to marvel at the incredible tricks in the sky as well as tour and learn more about the different aircrafts. Thank you, MCAS Beaufort, for putting together such a memorable event!
     And, on Saturday night, I had the opportunity to attend Coastal Living’s 20th Anniversary Dinner in Habersham. It was a beautiful occasion that celebrated all things Southern. We are honored that Coastal Living chose Beaufort, SC to host this exciting occasion!
     We hope to see you tonight at the Port Royal Candidates Forum at 6:00 p.m. at Port Royal Elementary School. Come and learn more about the four candidates running for the available Port Royal Town Council seat.
     And, last but certainly not least, we can’t wait for A Taste of Beaufort this Friday and Saturday in downtown Beaufort! Come out and enjoy the gorgeous Spring weather and the delicious cuisine from your favorite local restaurants. There will be a little something for everyone- live music, 5k run/walk, food, and arts & crafts market. Admission is free. For more information, visit www.downtownbeaufort.com. See you there!
    All The Best,
Blakely Signature
