Chicora Indian Tribe members clean up Socastee Landing Park

Members of the Chicora Indian Tribe gave back to their community Saturday by cleaning up the Socastee Landing Park beside the Peachtree Boat Landing.

The Harbor Towne HOA also cleaned up part of Port Drive between Malibu Lane and Harbor Towne Drive.

Chicora Indian Tribe Chief Clyde Strickland said the tribe has received a lot of support and appreciation from the community and homeowners in the area.

"This is what life is all about, taking care of mother earth, keeping everything clean, keeping everything safe," Strickland said.

Tribe members also received a helping hand from the Keep Horry County Beautiful Committee.

Members said they do about a dozen of these a year in Horry County.
