3.   We are looking at a “soft opening” for Savannah’s Playground toward the end of this month.  The playground is designed especially for children who have disabilities and special needs.  Conveniently located next to Crabtree Memorial Gymnasium, it offers ADA-approved play equipment and interactive features.  Stay tuned for more details


4.   Presentation of a handmade “bullet box” this week to compliment the Myrtle Beach Air Force Base historical artifacts on display at the Base Recreation Center is the subject of our Photos of the Week.  The box was built by retired Chief Master Sergeant Walter “Buck” Rogers to display the 30 millimeter shell fired by the A-10 Warthog.
