Five Years Ago
In the July 5, 2012 issue of The Daniel Island News, the feature story was all about the 5th Anniversary of the Daniel Island-based Lowcountry Explorers group. Since the group was launched in 2007, under the capable leadership of island residents John and Pat Dietz, participants have engaged in numerous tours and excursions of local and regional interest. With each trip, the group’s mission has been to give members a better understanding and appreciation for the unique beauty, culture and history of the area.
