SHANNON Service Club invites flag sponsors

Flag sponsorships assist the club's community service projects

The SHANNON Service Club invites  viewers to be a 2018 Main Street flag sponsor, according to Duane Bollenbacher of the club.

The purchase of flags, a $25 per flag, is open to businesses, organizations, or to individuals.

Bollenbacher said that sponsors may name someone that you wish to honor or memorialize with each flag sponorship.

All proceeds from the sponsorship of flags help the S.H.A.N.N.O.N. Service Club in its quest to make Bluffton a better community for its children, its elderly, its needy families, and all the citizens of Bluffton. 

If it has wheels you'll see it Friday

You won't see a car built before 1990 - maybe even 1975 - on Main Street

Bluffton Main Street ghosts reappear on Friday, June 15.

Those shadowy figures grew up on leaded gasoline, have 8-V engines under their hoods and ride on white-wall tires. They arrive in a variety of bright colors and don’t have FM radios.

Some have strange names like: Plymouth, Studebaker, Mercury, Edsel, VW Bug, Woody, Oldsmobile, Desoto and Packard.

Over 200 of them return to Bluffton for the 51st Bluffton Festival of Wheels cruise-in, sponsored by the Bluffton Lions.
