A NOTE FROM THE PRESIDENT 6.6.17

     This past Friday night, we saw our community shine at the 2017 Civitas Awards Gala held at Tabby Place.  It was a privilege to honor some amazing leaders and businesses in our community who truly make it a better place to live and work.  We had a room full of people who not only love our community but invest in it with their time, talents and resources to make it the best it can be.  That is what the Civitas Awards are all about- honoring people who make the Beaufort region the best place to invest, prosper, and enjoy.

     Thank you to all of our sponsors who helped make the event a success! We can’t produce events without support from community leaders like our presenting sponsor, Lockheed Martin, as well as our award sponsors- Alliance Consulting Engineers Inc., Ameris Bank, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, The Beaufort Inn, Mr. and Mrs. James Boozer, Main Street Beaufort USA, OneBlood, Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport, Technical College of the Lowcountry, T.W.E.A.C., United Way of the Lowcountry, University of South Carolina Beaufort, and previous Lifetime of Leadership Award recipients.
