Another calendar year is at an end and it has been a fantastic year at Charles Towne Landing! Not just because we had a record financial year, successful 5k races, great programming, and high visitation but because so many of you have provided your time and services to make Charles Towne Landing a better place . You provided, and helped provide, wonderful experiences for all of our visitors, volunteers, employees, and event participants. Nearly 120,000 people came out to experience the park this year for various reasons. That’s the highest visitation in my 10 ½ years here. We have so much to offer that I expect this figure to continue to climb over the next few years. Whether it’s cannon firings, Founder’s Day, archaeology day, the Animal Forest, family movie night, the Adventure, Waring gardens, Yoga Under the Oaks, Race the Landing, a wedding, reception, birthday party or just to come out and take a scenic walk or bike ride through the grounds; there is always something for everyone to enjoy. You all make it possible and so much better with your participation, work, donations, and love. I appreciate all that you do to make Charles Towne Landing a great place for everyone. Thank you to Gary Nichols and the board of the Friends of Charles Towne Landing. It’s because of you all that I can truly say “I Love My Job”! Come and See!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
