Small Business Lunch at Halls
The Hall family is pleased to welcome Dana Beach, Executive Direct of the Coastal Conservation League, as the featured speaker for the April 5 Small Business Lunch at Halls. Beach will discuss the environmental and economic impact of the proposed dredging of the Savannah River and what that may mean to South Carolina and especially to Charleston.
The existing Georgia Port on the Savannah River is proposing dredging 38 miles along the channel, from the ocean into the existing port potentially compromising the Upper Floridian aquifer, a vital source of drinking water for millions of people in SC and GA. The dredging will most likely prevent the Jasper Port from being built denying primary job investment that is so desperately needed in Jasper County.
Dana has received awards from many institutions, including the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the South Carolina General Assembly, and the American Institute of Architects. In 1998, Dana was named one of 10 "Heroes for the Planet" by Time Magazine's, Time for Kids. In March of 2000, he received the Order of the Palmetto, South Carolina's highest honor, awarded by the Governor for outstanding contributions to the state. A magna cum laude graduate from Davidson College, he earned his MBA from the Wharton School.
Each month, Small Business Lunch at Halls features a distinguished speaker from the business, civic or political arenas upstairs at Halls Chophouse with imaginative mid-day cuisine prepared by Executive Chef Matthew Niessner.
