Marketplace supports SFS mission

Paula Lowry surely possesses the DNA of a saleswoman.

Get her talking about the Semper Fi Sisters, the non-profit’s mission and the Marketplace which is a key part of every Beach Blast Packing Party and Lowry can’t contain the enthusiasm.

“It feels so good to be part of an organization you feel so passionate about,” Lowry said of the Semper Fi Sisters, for which she is co-founder and vice president.

Lowry’s primary task in preparation for this year’s Beach Blast is the composition of the Marketplace, which will be open 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. ET on Saturday at the Centennial Building while the sisters are packing Boxes of Love.

The Marketplace is where locals and those joining the Semper Fi Sisters on this Beach Blast to sell their wares in support of the mission the Semper Fi Sisters have carved out for themselves.

“We are in the background, but we are here to support our troops who support us. They are our heroes.”

The Marketplace is open to the public and many of the 6-foot tables the ladies reserve will be operated by the loved ones, wives, daughters, mothers, aunts, grandmothers, of deployed members of the military.
