Penn Center’s Oyster Roast/Fish Fry & A Movie
Penn Center will host its first oyster roast and fish fry of the year on Saturday, February 25, 2017 at 6:00-8:30 p.m. on the historic grounds of Penn Center.  Join us for some of the best seafood our area has to offer. Purchase your tickets available now: $30.00/person by calling Penn Center (843) 838-2432.  Enjoy free admission to the York W. Bailey Museum (5:00-8:30pm) and view the movie Family Across the Sea (7:00-8:00pm).  Family Across the Sea explores the remarkable connections between the Gullah of the South Carolina/Georgia Sea Islands and the people of West Africa, particularly those of Sierra Leone. The program traces the truly unparalleled historical connection and continued relationship from the time of slavery. The development of these two cultures is examined over the course of time, considering aspects of language, culture, folkways, and music common to both sides of this “family.” (c 1990).
