The neighbors of the Old Commons Association offer their gratitude to those who helped make their "Name the Lane" cookout and fundraiser a success. More than 100 people from the neighborhood and elsewhere turned out to support the association and the restoration of 607 West St., the home since 1930 of the Sons of Beaufort Lodge 36. More than $500 was raised for the lodge, which also is benefiting this summer from a grant awarded to Historic Beaufort Foundation for developing a restoration plan for the 130-year-old building.'
Among those who deserve recognition are members of the lodge who provided tables and chairs and who grilled burgers and hot dogs; We Island Gumbo 'n Tings for gumbo; Budget Print; Wesley United Methodist Church; and Rebecca Davenport, Lynne Jackson, Maxine Lutz, Anne Roberts, Jerri Stocks, Carol Tuynman, Faith Porter and Art Gingold, who were members of the planning committee.'
All residents and property owners in the Old Commons are welcome to be a part of the neighborhood association. Meetings are held September through May on the third Thursday of each month at 5:30 p.m. For other information, call me at 522-0948.'
