Ten years ago - Acclaimed silhouette artist showcased
The Daniel Island Inshore Fishing Club celebrated its 10-year anniversary. Ron Silverman, DIIFC founder, explained that the concept of the club was not just about catching fish. He said it was all about bringing island fisherman and their families together through monthly meetings, fishing activities, and social events, with an emphasis on making new friends. Learning more about fishing from each other and from guest speakers, and participating in conservation efforts was an added plus.
In art and music news, Clay Rice, an acclaimed silhouette artist, planned to bring his talents to Daniel Island for the first time for an event at the Daniel Island Club. Clay’s artistry, storytelling and music were planned as part of “An Evening of Lowcountry-style Entertainment” presented by the Daniel Island Historical Society and the Daniel Island Community Fund.

One of Daniel Island’s fine-feathered friends returned to the community. An injured barred owl found on the side of the road in Daniel Island Park in March was transported to the Center for Birds of Prey (CFBP) by island resident Kathy Bannister, a volunteer staff member at the center.
