Lowcountry resident to receive Order of the Silver Crescent

  • Thursday, July 17, 2014


Lowcountry resident David Beasley will be honored with South Carolina’s highest award for community service – the Order of the Silver Crescent – prior to the Charleston RiverDogs’ Military Appreciation Night game against the Augusta GreenJackets on Saturday, July 19, at Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park.

Beasley is being recognized for his long-time volunteer work with the American Red Cross as a platelet donor and for his involvement in other community activities that include the Adopt-a-Beach Program, the Historic Charleston Foundation and the Riverland Terrace Neighborhood Association.

“The Charleston RiverDogs and Riley Park are proud to serve as the site for this special presentation to a worthy individual,” said RiverDogs General Manager Dave Echols. “Mr. Beasley wanted to have the presentation at our Military Appreciation Night game because he wanted to share his honor with all the other reservists who put their civilian lives on hold to answer the nation’s call for help.”

State Senator Paul Thurmond will be presenting the award on behalf of Governor Nikki Haley on the field around 5:40 p.m. and prior to the game that begins at 6:05 p.m.

Beasley is a retired Coast Guard Reserve chief warrant officer who was mobilized three times after 9/11.

The Order of the Silver Crescent is awarded to residents of South Carolina for exemplary performance, contribution and achievement within the community. It is the state’s highest award for volunteer and/or community service.
