Folly Beach Civic Club Update: December 2023

Greetings Sandspur readers! 2023 was a busy year for the Civic Club. We had excellent speakers and well-attended meetings, produced a gorgeous calendar, provided a monthly edition of the Sandspur, and collaborated on numerous events for our Folly Beach community.

All of this could not happen without our Board and Members. Many thanks to our outgoing Board Members: Paula Stubblefield (VP), Dale Hart (Treasurer), and Eric Lutz (Secretary). Each of you has provided excellent guidance and rolled up your sleeves to pitch in when necessary.

Our 2024 Board welcomes its new members: Rives O’Connell (Interim VP), Alison McNatt (Interim Treasurer), and Beth Parler (Secretary).

Our next meeting will be January 16th at 7 pm. We will have a “planning session” at 5 pm, where the board will discuss ideas for the coming year. Members are welcome to attend the planning meeting, and if you have input, let me know!

Finally, for those who missed our November meeting, I want to highlight two services our speakers discussed that I hope will bring health and happiness to our community in 2024. Folly’s very own Soup and Soul kitchen at 12 pm on Mondays (October – May) at the Folly Beach Baptist Church. All are welcome to eat, serve, or just stop by for a chat. Another service is Let’s Walk. This is a free walking companion service for anyone who wants/needs to walk. They are always looking for volunteer walkers and clients in need. Check them out at or 843-864-9295.

The Civic Club could not exist without our members who volunteer their time, input, and support – you all are the foundation, and I look forward to working alongside you in 2024. See you soon! Amy Ray
