1st district House

Parker a native, with sound principles

The time is now to send a local Horry County businessman to represent the 1st District in the U.S. House. Clark Parker is that man. Clark is a graduate of Aynor High School and Coastal Carolina University and a certified public accountant for 30 years. He knows and cares for this area of South Carolina. Even better, he cares for all the people of South Carolina and this great nation. This may sound a little corny - but I think it is time for us who love the United States of America to be a little corny about our great country and who we elect to represent us.

A novel thought - elect someone that will represent us. Clark will not only go to Washington as the official representative of the 1st District, he will actually listen to what our concerns are and represent them.

I know Clark as a man with conservative principals and one who believes in the old adage, "If you don't have it, don't spend it." As a CPA he has helped countless Horry County businesses understand that principle. Is the need for government to live by this balanced money principle any less than you or me or a local business?

Squadron promotes safety, friendship

Boating season is approaching and the Long Bay Power Squadron is preparing for National Safe Boating Week, May 22-28. If you enjoy boating, we are very interested in meeting you. Boat ownership is not required.

As part of the U.S. Power Squadron, our organization is dedicated to promoting safe boating through education, civic service, monthly dinner meetings, organized cruises and social events that can be enjoyed by the entire family.

Becoming a member of the Long Bay Power Squadron is an excellent opportunity for a new boater to learn safe nautical skills from our experienced educational officers, in the classroom and on the water. It is also a great way for the more knowledgeable boater to meet new friends and share fun, fellowship and camaraderie with people who want to participate in safe boating activities.

We are now planning to celebrate the Long Bay Power Squadron's 50th anniversary with a dinner dance on June 8. We invite you to join us for this special occasion. For information about this, or any of our other upcoming activities, please call 236-7666.
