PORT ROYAL — The Town of Port Royal in conjunction with Leadership Beaufort Alumni Association (LBAA) and the Historic Port Royal Foundation (HPRF) will be hosting three back-to-back events related to the port property on Thursday, June 19th.

These events will provide opportunities to learn more about the port property’s history, current status, and future plans.  All three events are free and open to the public.

The first event will be a tour of the port property led by Town Councilman Joe Lee, which will depart from Union Church (1004 11th Street) at 4:30 p.m. Visitors will be able to access the property and get a behind-the-scenes look at the lay of the land and its relation to the water and the Old Village.

The second event will be a meet-and-greet reception at Union Church starting at 5:15 p.m. HPRF has recently made updates and improvements to the Union Church’s historic collections. Attendees will be given a chance to view the artifacts and discuss them with HPRF members. Light refreshments will be provided.

The third event will be a moderated panel discussion hosted by LBAA at Union Church at 6 p.m. The five confirmed panelists include: – Ogden Lazenby, discussing the site before port operations – Scott Graber, discussing the relationship between the port and the Old Village – Joe Lee, discussing the period since the port closure- Pete Cotter, former port manager – Judy Alling, representing the Sell It Now campaign. Additional panelists may be added before the event.
