SALT Newsletter, June 9, 2021

The word about SALT is getting out and about, so far just by Facebook and word of mouth. However, Kofie Montgomery is now organizing some outreach efforts for August, so if you know of a community group in the Grand Strand area who may enjoy a presentation about all that SALT has to offer, please let us know.

We are also accepting proposals for fall classes and clubs through June 30, so if you know anyone interested in sharing their passion or expertise with others, please spread the word.

Traveling with SALT

You still have time to register for our 2021 tours of the Great Lakes area (including Mackinac Island), Utah, canyons of the Southwest, and Music Cities Christmas. To see the brochures, just go to this link and click on the pictures. You can then print out the registration form (which is part of the brochure), or if you do not have a printer, you can call Premier World Discovery directly and register by phone. Be sure to inform them of the booking number that is located on the brochure.

We recently added an exciting excursion to Alaska that includes land travel as well.

Announcing a New Travel Option from SALT!

If you have a group of 8-12 people who would like to travel together, SALT can

  • Plan the trip

  • Book the venues

Simply tell us the destination (within 300 miles of Myrtle Beach), the dates, and the desired itinerary, and we will do the rest for either day or overnight trips.

There’s still room on many of our local excursions. We are taking a river cruise to see plantations near Georgetown on June 25 and then traveling to Caper’s Island for another low country boil (see picture above) on July 12. We also have planned fun trips to Bulls Island, Morris Island, Quirky Florence museums, Dooley Planetarium, and the Cameron Art Museum. Get out of the house and join us!
