The Seabrook Island Natural History Group has two outstanding events planned for February. The Evening Program on February 11th features Robert Barber discussing “Low Country Oystering”, and the annual SINHG Soup Supper will take place on February 19th.
Mr. Barber’s path to becoming an expert on oysters began when he was born into the family that called Bowen’s Island home. But that’s just part of the story. He also has an interesting and varied background which includes career stints as a minister, a lawyer, a politician, a lobbyist and now, a successful restauranteur. He currently manages his family’s restaurant, Bowen’s Island Seafood, on Folly Road. The program at the Lake House begins with refreshments at 7:00 and the speaker at 7:30 PM.
All Seabrook Island residents and guests are welcome. There is a $5 donation for those who are not SINHG members.
As usual, the Soup Supper will feature great soups, chili, breads and desserts as well as the traditional “Soup Throwdown” where a prize of incalculable value will be awarded to the chef with the best soup. Most importantly it is an evening of fun and camaraderie. Reserved tables will be available, so get your friends together and start planning for this special fun event. Tickets are still available!
Information about future programs, SINHG membership and Soup Supper Sign Up forms are all available on the SINHG website at www.sinhg.org.
