There is always something fun to do here at Brunswick Plantation & Golf Resort. Whether here on the Plantation or around town, the people of Brunswick enjoy getting together for a good time or cause. Here are a few highlights of Brunswick Plantation News and Events coming soon.
LEARN TO TAP DANCE & GET SOME EXERCISE
Free and open to everyone, every Wednesday from 9:30 to 10:30 at the Brunswick House, beginning on May 8th. We will “tap” with the Bonnie Franklin DVD —- a fun way to exercise and learn basic tap steps. All you need are tap shoes or smooth-soled shoes.
FULL MOON VIEWINGS AT SUNSET BEACH
The following are the Full Moon dates (along with a little trivia) for May through October…..perfect time to meet your friends and neighbors to the left of the pier at Sunset Beach. Bring your drinks and snacks and hang out with friends.
- May 25th Full Flower Moon – In most areas, flowers are abundant everywhere during this time, thus, the name of this Moon. Other names include the Full Corn Planting Moon, or the Milk Moon.
- June 23rd Full Strawberry Moon – This name was universal to every Algonquin tribe. However, in Europe they called it the Rose Moon. Also because the relatively short season for harvesting strawberries comes each year during the month of June . . . so the full Moon that occurs during that month was christened for the strawberry!
- July 22nd Full Buck Moon – July is normally the month when the new antlers of buck deer push out of their foreheads in coatings of velvety fur. It was also often called the Full Thunder Moon, for the reason that thunderstorms are most frequent during this time. Another name for this month’s Moon was the Full Hay Moon.
- August 20th Full Sturgeon Moon– The fishing tribes are given credit for the naming of this Moon, since sturgeon, a large fish of the Great Lakes and other major bodies of water, were most readily caught during this month. A few tribes knew it as the Full Red Moon because, as the Moon rises, it appears reddish through any sultry haze. It was also called the Green Corn Moon or Grain Moon.
- September 19th Full Harvest Moon – This full moon’s name is attributed to Native Americans because it marked when corn was supposed to be harvested. Most often, the September full moon is actually the Harvest Moon, which is the full Moon that occurs closest to the autumn equinox. In two years out of three, the Harvest Moon comes in September, but in some years it occurs in October.
- October 18th Full Hunter’s Moon – This full Moon is often referred to as the Full Hunter’s Moon, Blood Moon, or Sanguine Moon. Many moons ago, Native Americans named this bright moon for obvious reasons. The leaves are falling from trees, the deer are fattened, and it’s time to begin storing up meat for the long winter ahead.
