An Event In The Heart Of The Village Of West End

If you haven’t been to one of our Oyster Roasts, you are missing out on a truly enjoyable way to support a really good cause.

This year, the True Grit Oyster Roast is scheduled for October 9th, in the Heart of the Village of West Greenville. With live entertainment by Audrey Hamilton and Soul Service (Audrey has been described as a combination of Janis Joplin and Norah Jones, and I have to say I agree!), fresh oysters from Block House, BBQ from Wholly Smokes, and local craft beers on tap, this year’s event stands to be the best ever.

This is an event for the whole family. In fact, today we are sharing the thoughts of McKinnon, a 12-year old blogger who came out last year and wrote all about it!

“Overall is was a really cool experience! It was a great place to hangout, it would be great to bring your kids. Kids twelve and under get in free.”

I am a survivor of domestic violence.


“I didn’t know that I was being abused...

I am a survivor of domestic violence.


“I didn’t know that I was being abused because my definition of abuse looked different. My husband pushed me, but most of my suffering was verbal and psychological. I left my husband to protect our young daughter. Almost immediately I felt the weight of his oppression begin to lift. I could see a difference in my daughter as well. Then he broke into my home and assaulted me in-front of her.

I sought help and was led to Safe Harbor. My daughter and I are in counseling now. I am sorting out the mess that abuse has caused. I am finding my voice and seeking opportunities to grow and better my life as well as my daughter's. She will gauge her self-worth from my own self-worth. I must show her that she deserves the best, by expecting the best for myself.

Many years I suffered in silence. By telling my story and being honest with friends and family, I am taking control of my life again.”

- Beth
