Sol Legare & James Island Outreach for Better Transit

Tuesday Start Pushing for Improved Transit on Folly Road and Back to the Beach

Tuesday on Sol Legare & James Islands
Sol Legare Island and parts of James Island will get a personal invitation to come to Best Friends of Lowcountry Transit’s Sunday, July 1 Folly Road Freedom Fish Fry fundraiser on Tuesday, June 26 when members of Best Friends of Lowcountry Transit and volunteers will go door to door in the community bringing information about the upcoming Sunday  event at historic Mosquito Beach and our plans to work towards improved bus service on Folly Road and all the way out to the beach. Plans for a “Folly Ferry” serving Charleston, James Island, Sol Legare and Folly Beach are  also being explored.

WE’RE HIRING FOR TUESDAY EVENING- There will be a limited opportunity for paid work by young people from the Sol Legare Community starting at 6 pm. Pay will be $10 per hour to stuff literature bags and hang doorknobs in the Sol Legare and surrounding James Island Community. Participants must be 16 years or more in age and be able to fill out a W9 form.  Call (843) 870-5299 or email if you are interested.

Anyone wishing to help should meet on the South end of the Harris Teeter Parking lot, near the Gas station and Intersection of Sol Legare and Folly Roads between 5 and 6 pm. They should wear comfortable walking shoes, bring a bag to carry literature in and have a water bottle or other hydration. Sol Legare is a coastal island community so climbing steps will be part of the work.

Join us at the Rethink Folly Road Steering Committee Meeting — Wednesday, June 27 @ 3:30pm, James Island Town Hall (1238-B Camp Road) | The agenda and accompanying documents will be posted the week prior. There is a public comment opportunity, so please attend this meeting to voice your support for a safe, connected Folly Road. Hundreds of thousands of dollars have gone into this planning effort already. Help mus make sure tranist and safe conditions for pedestrians don't get pushed to the side in the unending quest for greater automobile throughput. If you want to talk about something specific, bring a map or picture of where it is.

Don’t forget the Folly Freedom Fish Fry
To order one of the special fish dinners,please order your tickets online. Preparing food like this takes lead time and the fish fillets have to be ordered by Wednesday. To be sure of getting a dinner, please order now.
