that you must take a detour to get to Cypress Gardens since the wrecked
train a few months back took out a bridge and it hasn't been fixed yet.
It's easy to get to, but you need to check it out on the website,
depending on which end of town you are coming from. SCDOTPHOTOS/CypressGardenRoadDetourPlan.pdf
still reading, good for you! Please do come. Even if it's just during
the day. This is a big deal for SHL and a LOT of work has been put into
it. It would be awesome to have as many people as possible come by and
say hi, participate, and take advantage of this special day. This
community is what you make of it. Please come be a part! :)
We hope to see you at Cypress Gardens either during the day or at night, or both!
President, Secular Humanists of the Lowcountry
