38 TH ANNUAL
FEST IVAL ARTICLE BY EMILY CAMPBELL
THE 38TH ANNUAL BLUFFTON VILLAGE FESTIVAL, OFTEN REFERRED TO AS MAYFEST, WILL BE HELD MOTHER’S DAY WEEKEND, FROM 10 A.M. TO 5 P.M. ON SATURDAY, MAY 7 IN OLD TOWN BLUFFTON. faces “only a mother could love,” the canine contestants compete to win the much sought-after title of the “Ugliest Dog.” Choose your favorite and cheer him on as he strives for the crown. The competition continues with the commencing of the fourth Annual Pie Eating Contest—always a crowd favorite! Who doesn’t enjoy seeing friends and neighbors make a mess stuffing their faces with pie? Sponsored by The Sugaree, Hilton Head Honda and Modern Classic Motors, this contest promises true entertainment in this winner-eats-all competition. Throughout the day, you will want to turn your attention to the main stage, featuring local bands and gifted dancers in a variety of performances that promise to keep the crowd on its feet. In 2009, the festival’s founder, Guscio, passed the baton to the Rotary Club of Bluffton to handle the planning and overseeing of this community event. “The Bluffton Village Festival is a favorite for all Rotary members,” said Rotarian David Hussey, chairman of this year’s festival. “It’s fun and rewarding to see the months of planning and man-hours pay off with an enjoyable event for locals and visitors alike.” One of the local artists who will be showcasing her talent at this year’s festival is Lowcountry native Ashley Hahn. If you are looking for a painting that embodies the beauty of Lowcountry life, then you will want to check out her stunning works of art. Growing up on Hilton Head Island, this self-trained artist said she recalls always

KNOWING THE PRICE OF EVERYTHING AND THE VALUE OF NOTHING
ave you heard? There has been much back and forth debate this past month in the local media and at numerous gated-community cocktail parties about the topic of a performing arts, entertainment and cultural campus for Hilton Head Island and some intrigue over our Town Council’s January vote to request funding from the Beaufort County Capital Sales Tax Referendum for CENSORED such an endeavor. I, for one, appreciate the beginnings of community conversation and feel responsible to establish truth where there may be misquotes and misinformation being promulgated as to the nature of Town Council’s application for capital sales tax funding and prospective locations of such an ambitious campus. As I have noted before on these pages several months ago, Town Council authorized a highly qualified citizens’ committee to study the arts, cultural and heritage organizations and assets of our community in order to determine their current and potential economic impact, to assess opportunities for increased collaboration, and to develop a plan for sustainability for this important facet of our quality of life on Hilton Head Island. The committee did a stellar job! Performing considerable due-diligence and authoring a 72-page detailed report, the committee members produced three key recommendations, one of which was that our town should evaluate the issues and opportunities surrounding the possibility of establishing a grand campus-style venue, a comprehensive centerpiece for the island’s arts, culture, heritage and entertainment. Understandably, some citizens of our community responded to this recommendation with trepidation—especially when Town Council took the additional step of applying for $30 million (the request has been reduced to $9.5 million as of the date of this writing) from the potential capital sales tax referendum proceeds, if such a landmark development were determined to be both financially and economically viable. It was clearly understood and embraced by Town Council that these funds, if secured, were simply a “placeholder”; but that fact has been noticeably ignored by some in a desire to immediately discredit what could actually become a significant economic

t has been 38 years since Babbie Guscio first dreamed up the idea of an artisan’s fair, showcasing the creativity and talents of the local artists in the sleepy little town of Bluffton, South Carolina. Fast forward to 2016, this “dream” is not only a reality, it is a successful annual event with approximately 10,000 visitors, over 200 vendors and enough Southern charm to impress most anyone. The town of Bluffton has grown by leaps and bounds since that first festival so many years ago, but the Bluffton Village Festival has maintained the quintessential allure that truly makes it “a celebration of Bluffton life.” The 38th annual Bluffton Village Festival, often referred to as Mayfest, will be held Mother’s Day weekend, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 7 in Old Town Bluffton. You don’t want to miss this day of fun, food and festivities that is a highlight of the Lowcountry spring calendar. As the festival has grown over the years, it has expanded its attention from mostly local vendors to vendors from across the Southeast. The “best of the best” of our region’s artists come together to display their beautiful works of art, from oil paintings to jewelry to woodworking and everything in between. This year’s festival will feature over 30 new vendors with unique offerings such as handcrafted paddle boards and original hula hoops. Some of the “crafts” are creations of the edible kind, with over a dozen food vendors offering delectable Lowcountry cuisine. Whether you want something sweet, salty or savory—or one of each—you are sure to find something that suits your taste buds among the myriad of scrumptious creations. When you are ready to take a break from all the shopping and eating, be sure to catch the 28th Annual Ugly Dog Contest, sponsored by May River Realty. It’s one of the most unique aspects and traditions of the festival. With

VISITING THE HISTORIC DISTRICT USING ALTERNATE MODES OF TRANSPORT
ue to the increased popularity of the Bluffton Historic District, the lack of available and convenient parking is often discussed as a challenge. While the town has implemented and is helping to facilitate additional parking opportunities as indicated below, the ultimate solution to the parking challenge is solved through a comprehensive plan that includes partnerships and the use of alternate transportation options: • Recent installation of “T” markings that clearly delineate parking spaces on Calhoun Street, increasing the efficiency of parking;
VISITING THE HISTORIC DISTRICT THROUGH ALTERNATE TRANSPORTATION REDUCES THE NUMBER OF VEHICLES NEEDING PARKING SPACES. ALTERNATE TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS INCLUDE WALKING, BIKING, BOATING AND GOLF CARTING.
• Facilitation of shared parking agreements between existing and proposed businesses including the current agreement between the Promenade and Cornerstone Church, which allows employees, residents and customers from the Promenade to utilize the church parking lot; • Funding (through ATAX funds) of the private coordination for a shuttle service on Farm Market days; • Approving regulations that increase the parking requirements per the UDO for new businesses to provide additional on-site parking; • Installation of bike racks on Calhoun Street. Visiting the Historic District through alternate transportation reduces the number of vehicles needing parking spaces. Alternate transportation options include walking, biking, boating and golf carting. Benefits of choosing to use alternate modes of transportation to take advantage of all that the Historic District has to offer include: • Health benefits. More walking and biking helps to reduce the risk of stroke, heart attack, breast cancer and Type 2 diabetes. A stronger heart, positive mental outlook and increased energy levels are also positive benefits from increased physical activity. • Reduction in air pollution. More than half of our state’s air pollution comes from cars, SUVs, trucks and other mobile sources. Every time we use alternative transportation, we improve our environment. • Improvement in water quality. As the Historic District continues to experience success, parking needs increase and so does the pavement that is required to accommodate the additional parking of vehicles. The increase of pavement (impervious coverage) increases the volume of storm water runoff and potentially reduces our overall water quality. Alternate transportation options reduce the need to increase additional pavement within the Historic District. If you live close to the Historic District, consider walking, bicycling, boating or using a golf cart to visit. Improve your health as you improve the environment.

eading is a ticket to Budapest and puts you in the front seat on a rocket to the moon launching from China. It builds human dignity and builds self reliance. Literacy makes all things possible to all people—the great equalizer. For more than 40 years, The Literacy Center, formerly know as the Literacy Volunteers of the Lowcountry, has been handing the keys to self-respect over to thousands of local men, women, and now children. Marking its tenth anniversary this year, Cooks & Books, the Lowcountry’s premier event for supporting literacy, takes place February 28, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Hilton Head Marriott Resort and Spa. Over a dozen of the area’s best restaurants and 18 Lowcountry authors showcase their skill and interact with supporters. The event offers an author meet-and-greet, and 1,000 carefully prepared delectable bites from each participating restaurant. Chefs also compete in a competition entitled “The Heat is On,” and authors share their secrets to composing great works. There’s little wonder why Cooks & Books has become a staple in the community for those supporting literacy.

n November 8, the Waddell Mariculture Center on Sawmill Creek Road hosted a fund-raising party, the eighth annual “Taste of Waddell,” sponsored by “Friends of Waddell”—a group of mostly local Lowcountry folks and organizations who understand the extraordinary value of the center’s work, locally and statewide. Their pleas for help had finally been heard. Featuring shrimp, raised at the center, May River oysters and music, it was far more of a celebration than in years past. The one million plus dollars earmarked for critical repairs to buildings at the center in last year’s budget negotiations in Columbia have started to flow to the Sawmill Creek facility, and work has already begun. For the first seven years of the event, funds raised were used to, quite literally, keep the center’s doors open. When operations began in 1984, the center was heralded as one of the largest and most sophisticated mariculture research facilities in the U.S. Less than 25 years later, funding from the state all but dried up. As for maintenance and repair, Columbia has always responded: “request denied.”

Prior to the signature event, a special gala dinner will be held on February 18, with a sumptuous feast prepared by TidePointe, a Vi community’s award-winning chef Stephen Stewart. The gala event includes an open bar and exciting silent and live auctions. To celebrate the tenth anniversary, we decided to find out from some notable locals what their favorite books were and why they felt so strongly about literacy in the Lowcountry. Local and national leaders are well aware that literacy is a keystone to being a successful member of society. It’s difficult to run a company without being able to read the contract. There are significant challenges to rearing children if you can’t comfortably pick up a book and read them a bedtime story or help with homework. These frustrations lead many to low-paying jobs, cycles of dependency, poor health, and low school achievement. When living in such a beautiful community with wonderful neighbors, it may seem that literacy issues do not touch the area. Most people are startled to learn that more than one in every 10 adults in Beaufort County and one in four in Jasper County are low literate. ProLiteracy
