Independence Day Mount Pleasant Style, 1810
Happy July 4th weekend! For the 34th Independence Day in 1810, the City Gazette reported that in Mount Pleasant, the “inhabitants of the village and neighborhood, [...] a number of visitors from Charleston, and a handsome assemblage of Ladies” celebrated the holiday at the Mount Pleasant Academy. The school, which opened to students in the Fall of 1808, was situated at Haddrell’s Point, giving it beautiful views of the harbor by which to observe the occasion.
2022 Marais Pool Rules - orig post 2022-06-21 on NEXT DOOR.

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

Summer Fun with the Mount Pleasant Baseball Club
On this day one hundred years ago, the Evening Post newspaper reported that the Mount Pleasant Baseball Club recently defeated the McClellanville team by a score of 8 to 2, and the next month they would face a double header against Moncks Corner. Mount Pleasant won both games, the first with a no-hit/no-run score of 4 to 0. The article covering this game mentioned the names of a handful of players, including Wagener and Blanchard (pitchers), McCants, Simmons, and Freeman (batters), Iseman (catcher), and Guilas and Crouch (umpires). This amateur team started to be mentioned in local papers at least as early as 1908, when they defeated the team from Charleston, and they would often practice and play at the picnic grounds of Alhambra Hall. The club, or some iteration of it, still existed as late as 1949 when they played against the American Legion Juniors team for Post No. 135.

Lighthouse Keeper Franto Mollycheck
The Mollycheck family has roots in Mount Pleasant dating back to at least the early 1900s. The family came from Austria-Hungary around the turn of the century. Franto Mollycheck II was born in Mount Pleasant in 1902, where the family operated a ten-acre farm.
In 1923 Franto joined the United States Lighthouse Service, and over the course of a nearly thirty year career served as a lighthouse keeper from Florida to North Carolina. Though he briefly operated the local Morris Island Light, some of Franto’s most significant postings were at Southport, North Carolina and St. Simons, Georgia. His wife Lilla, who would assist with geodetic surveys, would recall in the 1980s that the life of a lightkeeper’s family could get lonely, but was always full of adventures and new challenges.

Summer Reading: The Quest for the Golden Apple
As students adjust to the first few weeks of summer vacation, many local bibliophiles will soon be participating in summer reading programs. The Charleston County Public Library’s program for 2022, “Oceans of Possibilities,” is currently underway, and it follows a decades-long tradition of libraries helping students to retain reading skills during the school break.
On June 10, 1941, 81 years ago today, librarian Bessie Caldwell announced that the Mount Pleasant Library had twelve members participating in its summer reading program. To encourage more people to join, the library introduced “The Quest for the Golden Apple,” where readers would earn a red apple for reading five books, a yellow apple for reading fifteen, and a golden apple for reading thirty.
