The Waterford Plantation community yard sale is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 10 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. To participate, tie a balloon to your mailbox. It would also be helpful for those who live in a cul-de-sac to put a sign out on their corner leading shoppers to their home.

For the last 13 years, Mama Cass Cat Spay/Neuter has provided a valuable, necessary service to the Carolina Forest area.

They have spayed/neutered over 1,000 cats and kittens. They have also re-homed and neutered 99% of the cats at IHOP. At Kroger and the vicinity, 95% of the cats have been spayed/neutered, and adoptable cats have been placed in homes. Many of you have adopted some of our cats, which were fully vetted when you adopted them. Now they need your help. Funds from the spring sale have been depleted. They are unable to have a fall sale because of COVID and other health issues within the group.

Therefore, they are asking for community support. These volunteers have all put personal funding into the program but still need help. Whatever you can contribute to keep this program continuing would be greatly appreciated. If no one helps, this program will cease to exist.

Anyone who can help may send a check made out to Marilyn Maloney, 3308 Golden Court, Myrtle Beach, SC 29579 or PayPal . All funds received will be used for spay/neuter of feral cats.

A big thank you goes out to Holly Tedaldi, chair of Waterford Plantation’s event committee, and her volunteers for hosting a luncheon on Sept. 23 at Clark’s Chop House in Little River.

There were about 40 ladies in attendance who all enjoyed the food, an outside view, gift and the first social event since COVID-19.

The ladies hope these will continue. Interested in helping or hosting an event? Contact the event committee via the TownSq app for Waterford.

The next Carolina Forest Civic Association meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 21, subject to appropriate health protocols, at 7 p.m. at the Carolina Forest Recreation Center.

Please note the time change to 7 p.m. Social distancing and masks will be required to be worn per SCDHEC and Horry County guidelines. The speaker is yet to be determined.
