What’s the Buzz?
A Pollinators Presentation with Nancy Hart

(See below about other special activities at this lecture)

**Queen Street Playhouse
(home of the Footlight Players) located at 20 Queen St.
Admission: $10.00 (Free for CHS Members)

Nancy Hart, founder and past owner of Church Creek Nursery, knows a thing or two about the bird and the bees and their relationship to plants. At our second lecture at the Queen Street Playhouse (20 Queen St), Nancy will educate us on what exactly pollinators are, what they do and why exactly we need them so very much! Most importantly she will teach us how to attract pollinators to our gardens with the right plant material and generally promote their well being.

CHS Volunteer of the Year: We will be presenting this year’s recipient of our highest honor at this lecture.

**This is a new venue for this lecture. Please be understanding as we offer a new sort of experience for all our wonderful members!

Our friends at South State Bank have generously donated their assigned parking spaces in the Queen Street parking lot located a block from the theatre between Church and Meeting Street. There are 27 assigned spots for SSB including a majority of the spaces immediately to your left as you turn into the lot as well as the spaces along the back wall of the lot. There are also space in the middle section of the lot that are marked on the pavement that say South State Bank Parking as well. Please only park in these spots.

DO NOT PARK in any spots that are not marked for South State Bank as you will be booted.

Additional paid parking is available in the Cumberland Street Garage located just a block away at the corner of Cumberland and Church Streets. Street parking around the theatre is only one hour for non-residents, but there are many parking meters available both on Church Street as well as Cumberland behind the theatre.

If you are a South of Broad resident you may find that walking to the theatre makes for a nice autumn walk and saves you and others from parking worries!


Thank you to our sponsors!
