Cancellation of OR MPOA Annual Social

Posted 3/10/20: Out of an abundance of caution, the Ocean Ridge MPOA Board has decided to cancel the annual social scheduled for Saturday, March 28 due to the spread of the coronavirus. There are several reasons for this decision. First, we are getting into the busy season, and people will be visiting Edisto Beach from many other regions. Second, the social includes close contact between people and the sharing of buffet service tongs and spoons. We apologize for this scheduling change and wish you all a healthy spring season.
