Summerville at Hanukkah on the Square

Fun times at the Hanukkah on the Square and we promoted that we had our own holiday diversity Lightfest in Summerville! Wouldn’t it be great if we could have a low country/tri County lightfest next year? That would show a display of unity that everyone keeps talking about. Let’s make history and walk the talk and if you’re interested in helping to explore this idea, please message me or call 8438198509.
