Dear Editor: Our inaugural 2010 Fort McAllister Labor Day Weekend Blues & Barbeque Festival was a stunning SUCCESS! It was great to see so many families attend and have a great time.

Dear editor: I spend a lot of time volunteering at an Adult Day Care/Health Center in Richmond Hill called Coastal Care, Inc. aka Harmony House. I fell in love with the clients the first day there and have never left. Presently I plan all their activities each month on a very limited budget.
