The winning carts at the recent Fourth of July celebration included the Most Patriotic, decorated by Jaye and Angie Joye.
Cross picnic, fireworks show a hit
The Cross Recreational Development Picnic proved to be a memorable event for everyone, as over 200 people braved the heat on June 30 to join Vicki, Pearl, Simon and Gil for an early celebration of the Fourth of July at their home overlooking Lake Moultrie.
The day was packed full of activities for all ages to enjoy!
A delightful picnic was enjoyed with over 200 grilled burgers, 100 hot dogs, and many delicious side dishes brought by everyone. Then 17 golf carts entered the second annual regatta for judging.
The grand finale of the day came after dark with a terrific fireworks show from a platform in the water while a large crowd gathered in boats, golf carts, and with chairs to watch.
The winning carts of the regatta were: Most Patriotic, Jaye and Angie Joye with Uncle Sam; and Best Decorated, Jim Lyder and grandkids with a golf cart Fourth of July Train. The runners up were Bobby Lamb and the Holcom ladies.
The fireworks were accompanied by music. One viewer was heard to exclaim,“ Is that the finale? That’s at least the third time that we thought it couldn’t get any better!”
