Christmas Carolers Bring Holiday Cheer to Seabrookers

On the evening of December 10, 2018, Christmas Carolers visited the homes of several Seabrook Island residents serenading them with Christmas carols, good cheer, and best wishes for the holiday season.

This event is organized annually by Mary Ann Lloyd, who gathers singers from Seabrook Island and local choirs. She also identifies our Seabrook neighbors who would like to have a visit from the carolers. As always, it’s a great way to experience the good will of the holiday season. Many thanks to Mary Ann and all the singers for this wonderful tradition.

Pilates Dec 2018

Do you want to tone your abdominals and strengthen your core in the New Year? Pilates could be for you! This is a full-body workout that improves flexibility, builds core strength and develops control and endurance. It puts emphasis on alignment, breathing, developing a strong core, and improving coordination and balance. The core, consisting of the muscles of the abdomen, low back, and hips, is often called the “powerhouse” and is thought to be the key to a person’s stability.
