How the Ingram Dunes can be saved
The Ingram Dunes are the heart of North Myrtle Beach and their unique beauty has been loved by locals and visitors for generations.
The danger of having houses built on them is now more real and imminent.
Here is how they can be saved:
The Dunes are privately owned by the Ingram family and therefore they need to be bought from the owners at a fair market price. We are thankful that the Dunes are still there and adorned by their magnificent trees. The Dunes will become a Nature Preserve open for all to enjoy and appreciate.
All who love the Dunes are encouraged to contribute to the Dunes fund set up by the City of North Myrtle Beach as soon as they can. Now is the time. Small and large tax deductible, secure donations can be mailed or given at City Hall at Second Avenue South.
Tax deductible donations can also be sent via credit card to the GoFundMe Ingram Dunes site. Both of these Donations would be returned to the donor if the Dunes were not purchased.
We encourage the State Conservation Bank to decide soon about the city’s request to contribute substantially to the purchase of the Dunes.
Please write and call your City and State representatives and ask them to save the Dunes. City addresses are found at nnb.us, go to “General Information”/City Council Contacts.
