The Palmetto Region’s 50th Anniversary Celebration, including social hour, dinner, door prizes, silent auction of many items of interest, and program with special guest speaker Alois Ruf will be held in historical old village Mt Pleasant at Alhambra Hall on April 27th.
We are looking forward to reuniting with our members of the past and present. The Palmetto region dates back to 1969 when Warren Chard successfully petitioned for the formation of the Palmetto region and Dr. Leonard Turner formally presented us the charter. More on how we all came to be back in 1969, can be found here in an excerpt from our first newsletter.
To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Palmetto Region, events are planned for the weekend of 26-27 April 2019 in Charleston, South Carolina. Our headquarters hotel will be the Hilton Garden Inn in Mt. Pleasant, SC located at the base of the Ravenel Bridge. The region is hosting a welcome party at the hotel from 5:30 to 7 PM on April 26th.
Saturday morning, 27 April, attendees will have the choice of a Walking Rallye of the Charleston Historic District or a Gimmick Rallye and a (very) Low-Speed Autocross in Mt. Pleasant. Details will be provided prior to event. Awards will be given for all events.
Saturday evening will feature a Lowcountry inspired banquet with serving stations at Alhambra Hall on the waterfront overlooking Charleston Harbor in Old Town Mt. Pleasant with Cocktail hour beginning at 5:30 PM.
In addition to event awards presentations and raffle drawings, the evening’s activities will include a presentation by our Guest Speaker, Herr Alois Ruf, the founder and owner of Ruf Automobile, GMBH and the creator of the famed Yellow Bird.
