Dear Mount Pleasant residents and business owners,
Summertime is more than half-way over already. It is almost time to start back-to-school preparations, but before you do that, we have a few more community events, celebrations, and educational expos to enjoy. I hope you will join us at our regularly scheduled Movies in the Park on August 10th at Memorial Waterfront Park. We'll be celebrating our 2018 All-America City Award win and watching the classic all-American movie, Grease. We hope to see you on August 10th and at all our town offerings, which you can read more about below.
There are several other upcoming meetings and events scheduled for the next month, so I invite you to sign up to our Notify Me module and stay updated on the latest Town news, projects, and events. For more information about all that is happening in the Town of Mount Pleasant, please visit us online, engage with us on Nextdoor, like us on Facebook, or follow us on Twitter.
