Florence O' Sullivan
The name Florence O’Sullivan probably brings to mind Sullivan’s Island, which was named after O’Sullivan due to his position as lookout on the island in the late 1600s. The Irish soldier from Kinsale, who is also sometimes called Florentia O’Sullivan, was on the ship Carolina that brought the first European settlers to the Charleston area in 1670. Before coming to South Carolina, O’Sullivan served the British fighting against the French in Barbados. On the journey to South Carolina, he became deputy to Lord Proprietor Peter Colleton, and was later appointed Surveyor General of the province. He became one of the first Europeans to set foot in the future Mount Pleasant when he was granted nearly 2400 acres of land in East Cooper in 1680.

Ruby Middleton Forsythe
“Miss Ruby,” as she was affectionately known to her students, left a significant mark on education in Mount Pleasant and the Lowcountry at large. Ruby Middleston was born in Charleston in June 1905, and graduated from the Avery Institute in 1921 and South Carolina State College in 1924. For the first few years of her career Forsythe taught at Mount Pleasant’s Laing School, but after she married Episcopalian minister William Essex Forsythe in 1928 she started teaching at the one room school attached to the Faith Memorial Church on Pawley’s Island. At the time, this was the only school available to local Black students.

Seabreeze Drive-In
The Seabreeze Drive-In movie theater opened in Mount Pleasant in 1951, advertising itself as “1 1/2 miles beyond Cooper River Bridge, Mt. Pleasant near Shem Creek at the Dairy Queen.” For 40 cents admission, the theater played some of the most popular 1950s films, including Sabrina in 1956, and Funny Face in 1957. When the 1956 film Untamed Mistress, about a woman kidnapped by a tribe of bloodthirsty gorillas, was shown at the Seabreeze in January of that year, manager Paul A. Foster was arrested on obscenity charges that were ultimately dismissed.
2022 Marais Pool Rules - orig post 2022-06-21 on NEXT DOOR.

Marc Retchin - Marais at Seaside Farms • 2022-June
Marais Pool Rules Reminder
As pool utilization is peaking, just a reminder that we have strict guidelines regarding pool usage. The DHEC rules are posted on the fence by the shower, and a couple key rules are no glass, pets or smoking allowed in the pool or deck area. Please review and adhere to all DHEC and smoking rules.
Another key rule specific to Marais deals with pool access and utilization by visitors/guests. Owners/renters are allowed to bring daytime visitors/guests to the pool with them, numbers within reason. Guests of owners/renters temporarily residing in Marais are allowed access to the pool, using the assigned fob, with or without the owner/resident being present.
Fobs are not to be shared with daytime visitors/guests, without the owner/renter being present at the pool. This includes local family members who are not residing in Marais. Loaning fobs and allowing access to the pool, outside of the aforementioned guidelines, can result in the fob being disabled and pool privileges being suspended.
If an owner/renter would like to plan a party, please communicate and coordinate with the Marais property manager or pool committee (Marc Retchin or Jim Bennett). We want to ensure that there are no conflicts with parking, seating, other parties and for the rest of Marais owners/renters.
If you want to move furniture while using the pool, please return it where it was when you are done, as the pool deck is maintained by volunteers.
Lastly, be sure to discard trash, including napkins, cans, wrappers, etc. Thanks in advance for your understanding and assistance. Marc
