"Dr. Seuss said, “Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.” Your shared moments and memories will bind you even when thousands of miles draw you apart. From your first sip at the Old Well to the moment when you toss your hats to the Carolina Blue sky – your ties to each other and this place we love will continue to grow."
