Roses, chocolates, hearts and romance is starting to fill the air.  Valentine's Day is only a day away.  Have you made your plans yet?

At Lake Carolina, we have a few recommendations on pleasing your sweetheart with a Valentine's Day spent just minutes from home.

Treat your Valentine to a tranquil escape at Total Health Spa in Town Center for starters, then a new wash, cut & style from Halo Salon.  Pick up a sweet dessert from The Backyard Diner & Grille and a bottle of bubbly from Connoisseur's Corner and make your way over to Sunset Park to watch the sun melt over the Lake.  After sunset, walk home hand in hand and cozy up by your outdoor fireplace and watch the stars twinkle over head.

Now, wasn't that easy?!?

Lake Carolina is honored to have received the Community Service Award presented by The State Newspaper, Judges Choice Award and Best Use of Social Media for the Lake Carolina Wine and Food Festival at the 2012 Regal Awards over the weekend!

The Home Builders Association of Greater Columbia had this to say about Lake Carolina receiving the Community Service Award.

"Tonight we’d like to recognize a group of individuals that work tirelessly all year hosting events and raising funds for their charity to be able to “give back” to the community that has so richly blessed them. Lake Carolina formed Children's Charities of the Midland as a non-profit corporation in 2000. It was formed specifically to promote charitable endeavors and causes and to raise funds and contributions primarily for the betterment and improvement of the health, welfare and education of children and youth

This past year, Lake Carolina’s 10th Annual Wine & Food Festival raised $18,000 for Children's Charities. Recipients were, Harvest Hope Food Bank, which serves struggling families in 20 South Carolina counties and Abundant Life Equipment Lending Library, which helps Midlands children who suffered from devastating illnesses and accidents by providing access to vital medical equipment such as wheelchairs, positioning equipment, and nerve and muscle stimulators. In addition, $10,000 was donated to the Haiti Children Project. This projected is Founded by your own Wade McGuinn, one of Lake Carolina’s homebuilders. The Haiti Children Project supports an orphanage for 39 displaced children in Jeremie, Haiti, and hopes to expand to provide a feeding and school program for hundreds of children in the local village.

Lake Carolina takes pride in its many ongoing community service projects and this year added the Lake Carolina Military Ambassador Program. This program connects military and federal civilian families in the Lake Carolina community, as well as others in Northeast Columbia with the many services provided by Fort Jackson.

Congratulations to the Lake Carolina team for winning our Community Service Award!"

Thank you and congratulations to our hard working, award-winning sales and marketing team and to all of our residents at Lake Carolina for making this possible.  Lake Carolina is honored and humbled over our achievements over the last decade!
