For the new season 2016-2017, the first of the monthly dinners will take place at 6:30 PM at Hammond Hall in the Community Centre at Fripp Island on Sept 14.  A half hr social will precede an Italian lasagna dinner prepared by our favorite Harry Merrill Catering! Then for the next 8-9 months, there will be another dinner --each time on the 2nd Wed of the month (usually following Vespers in the All-Faiths Chapel with our fantastic 4-part harmony choir). Attending Vespers is not a pre-requisite.  You will need to get your $15/pp check to Don Aldrich on the Mon a week prior to the dinner (in this case on the 5th or 6th of Sept, at 868 Sabal Ct in Sawgrass.  Guests, as well as owners are invited, so if you (& your fam/friends) want to attend and see a good number of folks who live here, give me a call 843-838-0806 & I'll try to arrange it. No need to dress fancy - your flip-flops will do & shorts or jeans.  We are a beach, fun-loving, outdoor-type group of homeowners who you will enjoy.   Fripp Island has 2 distinctive advantages over other barrier ocean islands - a) we are a Wildlife Preserve and an IBA (birds) with our own Audubon Trail and b) we have a great All-Faiths Chapel with Wed evening services at 5:30 PM & a great mix of Ministers.
