DI People & Pets joins Pet Sitters International
Daniel Island People & Pets, LLC has been accepted for membership in Pet Sitters International (PSI) an organization of more than 7,000 independent professional pet sitting services throughout the United States, Canada and abroad. Found in 1994, PSI is the world’s largest educational association of pet sitters.
For pet owners, professional in-home pet sitting provides a unique alternative to boarding facilities – or relying on family or neighbors to check on pets. Pet sitters come to the home daily and animals are able to keep their regular routines for meals, walks, medication and one-on-one care and attention. DI People and Pets is also insured and bonded through PSI in an effort to offer their clients absolute peace of mind.
With membership in PSI, DI People & Pets has reinforced its dedication to offering professional, quality services and increasing their knowledge of the pet care industry. Traci Black and DI People & Pets are available for pet sitting on Daniel Island and Clements Ferry Road. Call 843.343.6653 for an appointment.

Daniel Island Residence launches iPhone App
Andrew Hanhauser, five year DI resident, launched the iPhone application Safe Slide earlier this month.  Safe Slide is an application that allows iPhone users to share only select iPhone photos with their friends and family. Hanhauser was tired of handing his phone over to friends who scroll through his entire library of photos on his phone.  Safe Slide controls which pictures friends and family can see. The app user selects the photos before handing the phone over and the app only shows the photos the user has selected, making it impossible for friends and family to see any other stored photos.
Hanhauser is excited for this application; he says it’s simple, easy to use and the only one of its kind right now. He is also happy to report that the app should come with minimal problems as it lives on your phone and not in a cloud server, so no unexpected crashes should occur.
You can purchase Safe Slide in the iTunes app market for $1.99.  Safe Slide will soon be available for the Droid markets and other mobile devices as well.

Daniel Island’s Park Day Festival Returns Saturday, November 3
Daniel Island will help celebrate the grand opening of its newest park this fall at its popular annual fall festival, Park Day, on Saturday, November 3, 2012. A fall traditional in the Lowcountry, Park Day is a day of outdoor family fun for all ages that showcases and supports a diverse range of local charitable organizations. In addition to live entertainment, games, jump castles, a pie baking contest, animal exhibits and other favorite activities, this year’s festival will also feature several new events and new food and beverage options, including food trucks, and a beer garden and wine tasting area. The event will take place from 11 am until 5 pm at a new venue this year, the City of Charleston’s newly-opened Governor’s Park, located on Seven Farms Drive in the heart of Daniel Island.
Park Day is also a day for eating, and this year’s dining offerings will expand with a “Food Truck Rodeo,” featuring a collection of some of Charleston’s favorite mobile food vendors. Festival favorites like the Daniel Island Grille, Mr. Koolie, Kettle Korn and more will also be returning, and a new Craft Beer Garden and Wine Tasting tent will appeal to adults enjoying the festival.
Charleston’s Mayor Joe Riley and other City of Charleston officials will take the stage at noon for a dedication ceremony to commemorate the Grand Opening of the City’s new Governor’s Park. This 40-acre park is located adjacent to the Family Circle Tennis Center on Seven Farms Drive, and features playing fields, an outdoor stage, a grand lawn, a walking trail along the Wando River and a dog run. Recently opened, it is quickly becoming a new center for sports and recreation for both Daniel Island and Charleston area residents and visitors.
Since its inception twelve years ago, Park Day has helped raise more than $200,000 for a diverse collection of more than 60 area non-profit organizations, making it one of the region’s most successful and broad-reaching charitable events.
Park Day takes place on Saturday, November 3 from 11 am – 5 pm. Admission and parking are free. In order to raise money for participating non-profit organizations, some activities will require a fee. For more information, visit
