Arthur Stubbs retirement party June 22 on Sullivan’s

Come out to celebrate the retirement of Arthur “Bun” Stubbs. For 35 years, Stubbs considered all of his UPS customers family. Now it is time to thank this honorary islander by coming out to celebrate him at a retirement party. The celebration will be held June 22 from 5-8 p.m. at Stella Maris Catholic Church, 1204 Middle St, Sullivan’s Island.

Stubbs wants this retirement party to benefit others. His son, Andrew, was born with cerebral palsy, a disorder impacting his mobility and speech. Through Arthur’s tireless campaign to provide the most fulfilling life possible for his child, the Stubbs family discovered Independent Grounds Coffee House, a nonprofit which provides job training for individuals with different abilities. This special evening will allow each islander to come and meet the founder, Laura Pickard; to hear about her journey to start this groundbreaking program.

A single ticket for $40 will include Sticky Fingers BBQ, non-alchololic beverages, dessert from Kaminsky’s, and two beers or glasses of wine from Ghost Monkey Brewery and Edmund’s Oast. A family ticket can be purchased for $70 and includes the above items for two adults, and all but the alcoholic beverages for other family members. Additional alcohol sales available for purchase.

The best sendoff you can provide Arthur will be to support his vision to support this program which benefits adolescents across the Lowcountry.

Tickets can be purchased at the door or online at https://bit.ly/31cUFtS.

Turquoise Table

The official launch and unveiling of The Palmetto Presbyterian Church Turquoise Table will take place June 9 at 11:30 a.m. at 1720 Carolina Park Blvd., Mount Pleasant.

The Turquoise Table is a movement and national community born from the book by Kristin Schell of the same name. The basic premise behind these tables is that they provide “a simple way to connect your neighborhood, your community and build friendships.” Many of the tables that are registered (a couple of which I believe are within the Charleston area) are located in individual family’s front yards. Palmetto Presbyterian is uniquely positioned to offer a table for Mount Pleasant as the church, and the table, is situated in the middle of Carolina Park, at the corner of Carolina Park Blvd. and Darrell Creek Trail. The table is located at the corner and they welcome anyone to join them at the table. Last week they hosted a Popcorn and Popsicles event for the children walking home after their last day of school from Carolina Park Elementary as it’s right down the road.

Colonel William “Danger” Thomson played the key role in defending Sullivan’s island from British forces who attempted to cross Breach Inlet to attack Fort Moultrie from the rear. This battle is celebrated each year on June 28 as Carolina Day. Who better to tell the fascinating story of this epic 10-day battle than Doug Macintyre, a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and a five-year infantry officer in the U.S. Army. MacIntyre presents the story of Col. William Thomson, his role in the Battle of Sullivan’s Island in June 1776, and the formation of Thomson Park on Sullivan’s Island.
