Mission

Our mission is to further connect our low country veteran and military communities by creating and maintaining a quarterly calendar. This is all-volunteer ran and is not attached to one single organization.


As you scroll down, you will see the calendars with the event names. For more details on these events, please continue to scroll down to the full description.


To add an event to this calendar, the event must support veterans, service members, and their families. Businesses are welcomed to submit events, however, it must align with supporting our community.
