The Propeller Club hosted their first Bluegrass Concert at the S.C. Maritime Museum in Georgetown on Saturday afternoon.
The concert featured live Bluegrass music from Subject to Change and the Red White and Blue Grass Band.
The event also included a pileau contest and a shad fry.
Louis’s Sanford restaurant won first prize for the best pileau and $375 in cash.
Chef Michael Keough said he added duck and oysters to his pileau, giving it a rich taste by folding oyster juice in with the rice.
The club president, R.C. Ferdon, said their January event raised $2,000 that will go toward maritime related scholarships.
“We want to support the Alliance so that there will be employment opportunities for those students when they graduate.”
“Restoring business to the port will restore prosperity to Georgetown,” Ferdon said.
The Propeller Club of Georgetown is a professional organization dedicated to the enhancement and promotions of all interests in the maritime community for the Port of Georgetown.
Members include maritime industry related businesses, officials with state, federal and local governments, Port of Georgetown pilots and port workers, and Coast Guard, Navy, and Merchant Marine officers, both active and retired.
The club fosters professional dialogue between groups and development of related maritime industry businesses, associations, educational institutions, and government agencies to ensure that the Port of Georgetown remains a viable economic engine for our community.
