The 2009 Lowcountry Shrimp Festival has come and gone. Despite the midday shower, it was another great success. We at ARA can not express enough our sincere appreciation for everyone that makes this event possible. Michelle managed another smooth operation. It is always amazing that it comes together with as few problems as we have. All of the students worked so hard in preparation, during and after. We are very proud of your efforts. All of the parents and friends worked so hard. We had friends come by the kabob tent and when we got busy they just joined in. It really was a community effort, and a sincere thanks to everyone.
