The executive officers of the Pigeon Point Neighborhood Watch thank the Beaufort Police and Fire departments, the parks department and all of the members of the Neighborhood Watch who participated in the second anniversary celebration of the reopening of Pigeon Point Park on May 3.
David Ott and his crew from the city of Beaufort's Police Department cooked hot dogs and hamburgers, and the Fire Department was there with a truck for the children to climb into and learn all about the truck and what firemen do. The members of the Neighborhood Watch served the food that included chips, soft drinks and home-baked and store-bought cookies. To those who baked cookies a special thanks. They were delicious.
A special thanks goes to David Goodwine, manager of the Piggly Wiggly on Boundary Street, and Bill Bradshaw, manger of the Bi-Lo supermarket in Beaufort Town Center. They generously provided many of the cookies for this event.
We also thank those who came to enjoy a beautiful day of fun, friendship and good food. Our city can be very proud of our Pigeon Point Park.
