BOLO - Stolen Golf Cart

Posted to Fripp Island Security by Stacie Thrush

On 01-09-24, a blue Yamaha four-seater golf cart was stolen from the New Haven parking lot by an unknown subject. The VIN number for this cart is JC2203338, and it has a Fripp Island decal of 3670.  If you see the cart on the island, please contact Fripp Island Security at the phone number (843) 838-2334. If you see the cart off the island, please contact Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office non-emergency number at (843) 524-2777.   

  Tips for securing your golf cart: 

1.    When parking a golf cart, never leave keys in the cart, even if parked inside a garage.

2.    When possible, park in a secured garage.

3.    Lock the steering wheel or gas pedal when not in use.

4.    Switch golf cart mode from run to tow when not in use. This will disable the cart from moving.

Go to Google and type in golf cart locks and multiple options will be displayed to find some of the above options.

FICC 2024 Fund Drive Status

As of today, the last day of our official Annual Fund Drive, we are at approximately $45,000 in donations or pledges.  So, with one day left, we know you can do it! We are so grateful for the generosity of Fripp Islanders.  If you haven't yet donated to our Annual Fund Drive, please do so!  And just because it's the end of the drive, doesn't mean we won't still take your donations!  It just means that you won't see any more messaging until we announce the final total.  Thanks to all who have given or will give.    We truly appreciate all who have "turned up the temperature" on our fund drive thermometer!   Donations can be mailed to the Fripp Island Community Centre, 205 Tarpon Boulevard.
