LDSS Announces Camp Buddy 2018 in Chatham, Effingham

Porsche 70th Anniversary Celebration Held at Peacock Automotive

Porsche 70th Anniversary Celebration Held at Peacock Automotive

(JASPER COUNTY, S.C.) Peacock Automotive brought together sports car lovers, local dignitaries and others from across Coastal Georgia and the South Carolina Lowcountry to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Porsche’s line of premium automobiles.

“The 70th anniversary was an essential reminder and celebration of the brand history and heritage and the community of owners and enthusiasts who share our passion,” said Warner Peacock, president and CEO of Peacock Automotive. “It was also a unique opportunity for Porsche enthusiasts to celebrate together and participate in a global event in typical Porsche fashion.”

Guests were invited to celebrate “Sportscar Together Day” — an event that featured an international twist — at Porsche of Hilton Head in the Peacock Auto Mall on Highway 278 in Hardeeville, S.C.

Members of the local chapter of the Porsche Club of America, Coastal Empire Region, displayed more than a dozen classic Porsche automobiles to convey the decades of the brand’s evolution.

The Porsche brand was born in Stuttgart, Germany, in 1948 when the company’s founder, Ferdinand “Ferry” Porsche created a prototype two-seat open sports car designed as the 356 “No. 1” Roadster. What may be Porsche’s best-known model, the Porsche 911, was launched in 1963. By the beginning of 2018, more than one million 911’s had been manufactured.

Peacock Automotive’s 70-anniversary festivities included a block party featuring Bavarian-inspired food from Skull Creek Boathouse and non-alcoholic refreshments, along with entertainment by a DJ and a Porsche “birthday cake” to celebrate the brand’s history and passion, which guests were invited to enjoy in the early afternoon.

“With an event of this magnitude it was important to highlight the global nature of this program,” Peacock said. “Sportscar Together Day was our first global celebration, fueled by events around the world along with active online communities and social media. But, it was primarily an opportunity to get together as a community at local Porsche Centers to celebrate the thrills of being sports car owners and enthusiasts.”

To that end, devotees of the brand were asked to share their experiences online using the #SportsCarTogether on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat.

Further festivities included door prizes throughout the event and test drives of all the Peacock Porsche vehicles.

For more information about Peacock Automotive or the Porsche of Hilton Head dealership, visit https://www.peacockautomotive.com/ or call 843-208-1258. For additional information about the 70th-anniversary celebration, contact Jill Jauch at jj@peacockautomotive.com.

How to Recognize Melanoma Warning Signs

By | Local NewsWIRE

How to Recognize Melanoma Warning Signs
by Dr. Corinne Howington

With beach season upon us, our coastal locals start taking time to soak up the sun, but these long, light-filled days often mean overexposure to the day’s dangerous ultraviolet (UV) rays.

With more than three million cases of skin cancer diagnosed annually, beachgoers need to be more mindful than ever as more than 95 percent of all skin cancers are associated with sun exposure. Regular daily use of an SPF 15 or higher sunscreen reduces the risk of developing skin cancer by almost 50 percent.

Designated by the American Academy of Dermatology, National Melanoma Skin Cancer Awareness Month is set for the month of May to try to raise awareness about skin cancer and increase the chances of early detection.

Here at home, we must be committed to raising awareness and encouraging action to prevent melanoma.

The American Cancer Society reports that more people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year in the U.S. than all other cancers combined. About 9,320 people are expected to die from this disease in 2018. The good news is that skin cancer is not only preventable but is the most curable form of cancer.

Our goal for the month of May is to bring attention to skin disease and to get people to talk about an uncomfortable topic.

Education is the key to fighting this form of cancer. If the disease is caught early and treated, the cure rate is extremely high.

Be aware of any spots on your skin that are different from the others or anything that’s changing, itching or bleeding. When checking your skin, you should look for the ABCDE’s of melanoma:

A) Asymmetry
One half of your dark spot is unlike the other half.

B) Border
An irregular, scalloped or poorly defined border is around your dark spot.

C) Color
The hue is varied from one area to another; your dark spot has shades of tan, brown or black or is sometimes white, red or blue.

D) Diameter
Melanoma spots are usually greater than the size of a pencil eraser when diagnosed, but they can be smaller.

E) Evolving
A mole or dark spot that looks unusual or is changing in size, shape or color.

As a note, not all melanomas will look like moles but may appear to be a bruise or spot that doesn’t heal.

Early detection remains the best way to fight melanoma. Patients whose melanoma is treated before it spreads to the lymph nodes or other organs have a five-year survival rate of 99 percent. This drops to 63 percent when the disease spreads to the lymph nodes and other nearby organs and 20 percent when it spreads to distant organs according to the American Academy of Dermatology.

It is recommended that everyone perform regular skin self-exams. Prevention is the best form of medicine. So this May, add a healthy dose of sunscreen to your skin.

Applications Sought for Free Mouth-Guard Program for Local Sports Teams

Applications Sought for Free Mouth-Guard Program for Local Sports Teams

(SAVANNAH, GA) Any high school or group that offers team sports in the Savannah area is invited to apply for free custom-fit mouth guards for their upcoming season courtesy of Angela Canfield, a local dentist who operates Sandfly Family Dental in Savannah and Premier Dental Designs in Rincon.

Angela Canfield Sandfly Family Dental Donates Mouth Guards to Bethesda Academy - 2017 Canfield Mouth Shield

Canfield fitting Bethesda Academy football player for custom-made mouth guard

Canfield is accepting applications until Monday, July 2 for the 2018 Canfield Mouth Shield Program that will provide mouth guards in team colors, valued at up to $10,000, for the team chosen for the program.

“Giving back to the community and protecting young mouths is a priority for me and my team,” Canfield said. “I choose to donate the gear because these children deserve to have healthy smiles and research shows that wearing custom-fit mouth guards while playing sports reduces the risk of severe injuries to the teeth and jaw.”

Canfield developed and implemented the mouth-guard program in 2014 as a way to help kids in the greater Savannah area maintain a healthy smile. The first recipient was the Benedictine Military School football team. Since then, she has provided mouth guards to organizations that include Groves High School, Hancock Day School and Bethesda Academy.

The program is open to teams in numerous sports, including baseball, basketball, football, soccer, softball and wrestling.

“Nearly 50 percent of kids will experience some type of damage to a tooth, often in conjunction with a sports injury,” Canfield said. “While these injuries are not usually life-threatening, serious complications could occur and restorations can be costly. Injuries can also have long-lasting effects on a child’s appearance and self-confidence.”

She said injuries may result from anything from direct contact to a misplaced step while running. The custom-made mouth guards provide stability to the players’ jaws and cushion blows that can cause severe dental injuries such as broken teeth, fractured jaws, gum lacerations and injuries to the lips or tongue.

Canfield will donate the mouth guards, valued at $85 each, to every player on the selected team. Each appliance includes a one-year warranty that covers any dental expenses incurred by players while wearing the mouth guards. The warranty pays $1,093.75 per injured or replaced tooth up to a maximum of $35,000 per incident. Since the program started, Canfield has donated over $40,000 worth of protective gear to local student-athletes.

Applications must be received by Monday, July 2. For more information or to apply, visit http://www.sandflyfamilydental.com/community/
