President’s Corner

By Julia Long


The city has an extensive landscaping plan for The Antlers Interchange. Please come to our meeting this month to learn more about it and to get caught up on other community news.

Plan ahead for next month's meeting, November 20, as it will be extremely important. As we head into the holiday season when crime often increases, we'll be having crime-prevention training led by the city police officer who specializes in this. Everyone is invited, whether a member of the civic club or not, so please let your friends and niehgbors know about it. We also invite representatives from Northwood Estates and The Lakes, as this needs to be a wide-scale effort.

Also put our  annual  party on your Calendar: Monday, December 11. Notice that's the second Monday of that month, rather than the third Monday, so as not to be so close to Christmas. We always have a good time; it's important to maintain good relations with your neighbors by visiting and socializing with them.

Nominations for Citizen of the Year

The Citizens Advisory Council will take nominations for anyone in the city that you know of who, in the past year, has gone "beyond the norm to help others in a special way, performing exceptional acts of service, possibly even being put at risk to help in a potentially dangerous situation, etc." The CAC asks that you include the name, address, and phone number of this person "with some background information and special things done over and above his or her normal job or activity." Also include your own name, address, and home number. Nominations due by Nov. 1. Send to the City of North Charleston, Citizens Advisory Council, c/o Executive Department, P.O. Box 190016, North Charleston, SC 29419-9016.

Senior Bingo


Senior Bingo is now being held at the Northwoods Recreation Center ( 8348 Greenridge Rd. ) on the first Tuesday of every month beginning at 10 a.m., ( please arrive early ) and will last approximately 1 hour.  There is no fee for playing Bingo. The phone number to the Northwoods Recreation Center is 572-5410. If




you, or anyone you know has any good ideas for other senior activities, please contact our fellow Deer Park member, Sara Collins at 553-0288, or see her at the Bingo sessions!



Daylight Savings Time Ends



Remember…….Spring forward…..Fall back!  It’s almost that time of year again.  This year Daylight Savings Time ends on October 29th, the last Sunday of October, at 2 a.m.  We revert to Standard Time on this day, so remember to set your clocks BACK one hour. 


Community Needs



We are currently looking for someone who will be willing to take the minutes at our monthly Civic Club meetings.  This doesn’t involve a whole lot of time and we could surely use your help!  If you or someone you know are interested in helping with this, please contact our Civic Club President, Julia Long.  We are also looking for someone to work with Dennis Isgitt on Clean City Sweep, now in the pre-planning stages. We have needs in this community and we count on volunteers to step forward. Please take a look at these and see if, in fact, you can’t spend just a little extra time in helping in these areas. 


Other News



The CAC reports that FREE flu shots will become available at Eckerd’s Drugs on Remount Road on October 19.  It would be best to call ahead to confirm.  Also, Please take note that BULK TRASH will now be picked up every Wednesday, instead of every other Wednesday.  This does not include items such as tires and construction debris.  It does include regular yard items and tree limbs/branches up to 4 feet in length.  For a more comprehensive list of what you can and cannot put out, please contact the North Charleston Public Works Dept. at 745-1026.
