IOP Marina Festival – Volunteer Will Be Present at Dewees Parking Lot Entrance

Dear Community,

On Sunday, November 4, 2018, from 1-6, there will be an IOP Marina Festival hosted by the IOP Exchange Club. The Festival offers an opportunity to enjoy a fun-filled day with activities for all ages, especially for children and a chance to contribute to a worthy cause. Activities include an Eco boat tour boat ride hosted by Barrier Island Eco Tours, which will view and discuss some of the unique wildlife of the Lowcountry! There will also be many other games and fun activities. Two country bands will play, over 15 door prizes drawn, and 4 amazing raffle winners will be selected.  The festival proceeds will contribute to the IOP Waterfront Legacy Community Service Program.

As a large crowd is expected for this event, there will be a volunteer stationed at the entrance to our parking lot in order to help us manage access.  We will allow the exchange club to utilize spaces along our fence adjacent to the marina, and they will not allow any guests to park in owner spaces.  If you or your guests are accessing the parking area on Sunday afternoon between 1-6pm, please identify yourself to the attendant as a property owner for access.  

Best Regards,
David Dew, CCM, CCE 
General Manager

New volunteer opportunity with SCDNR-certified Fishing Instructor Program

We thought we would share this great opportunity for folks who are interested in volunteering as a fishing instructor. Please see below for full details.

My name is Olivia Bueno, and I help coordinate large outreach and volunteer events for the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR). I’m reaching out to let you know about our new Certified SCDNR Fishing Instructor Program, based here in Charleston, South Carolina.

This is a volunteer-based fishing instructor program where volunteers become “Certified SCDNR Fishing Instructors” after completing a free instructor training course and then lead family fishing clinics around the Lowcountry. 

The SCDNR program offers:

  • A curriculum that is hands-on and fun for participants
  • Trainings and tools that equip volunteers to be successful as fishing instructors
  • Network of fellow instructors and resources

SCDNR will provide all of the tackle and training materials needed for each clinic; in return we ask each certified fishing instructor to lead/co-lead at least two family fishing clinics a year.

We are looking for volunteers who:

  • Have a desire to share their passion for fishing and the outdoors with young people
  • Enjoy teaching and working with children
  • Have a flexible schedule

If you or anybody in your community is interested in this program, please complete this application and email it back to me at BuenoO@dnr.sc.gov.

Once we have enough interested volunteers, we will send out a separate email with more information about the program and upcoming instructor training class.

If you have any questions about the program, please feel free to email me or call my office number at (843) 953-9809.

Thank you and I hope to hear from some of you!

Happy fishing,
