Exercise At Home

The Lake House is releasing YouTube videos that they have made to show how different exercises can be modified to meet the needs and abilities of different people.

If you are not comfortable going into The Lake House, rather than avoiding exercises, you can do them from home. Mark Durinsky, Lake House Personal Trainer, offers hints on how to modify exercises such as squats, pushups, and the plank.

These videos are only 4 or 5 minutes long and demonstrate how different exercises can be adapted for anyone wanting a less difficult workout or those who would like to start exercising again.

Check out this video sent recently. In this video, Mark shows 3 more exercises with modifications to add to your beginner exercise program. Click here.

Here is a list of the previous videos:

Kiawah Arts Council Update

An Update on the Arts & Cultural Events Season

Dear Patrons,

As we informed you in the summer, the Town of Kiawah Island canceled the first half of the Arts & Cultural Events season with the hope that events could resume safely in early 2021.

The Arts & Cultural Events Council, in coordination with the Town, has begun evaluating events planned for 2021 on an incremental basis. There are no events being considered until after January 2021. Evaluations will include an assessment of various factors impacting the safety of artists, guests, volunteers, and staff. We will keep you informed as further decisions are made and will provide an update on these efforts in January.

Elements of the Arts Council program such as the volunteer-based structure, guest demographics, and use of multiple venues present unique challenges in implementing recommended safety protocols. As such, the Arts Council believes an incremental approach is the best manner in which to proceed.

When the Arts Council resumes events, all applicable State and local requirements, such as capacity constraints and face coverings, will be strictly enforced.

We thank you for your patronage and look forward to welcoming you back to performances when the situation allows.

-Kiawah Arts Council

SINHG Tours Magnolia Cemetery

Nineteen Seabrook Island Natural History Group (SINHG) members made a nighttime visit to Charleston’s historic Magnolia Cemetery late this month as part of SINHG’s series of fall trips for members.

Curated by Bull Dog Tours, members learned of the cemetery’s founding in 1849 and its status as the final resting place for more than 2,000 Confederate soldiers, including the eight crewmen of the CSS Hunley submarine and eighty-four soldiers who died at Gettysburg. The tour was a moving tribute to the Holy City’s sometimes tumultuous history.

Alan Fleming Tennis Teams Up With Blessing Basket

While the 2019 Alan Fleming Tennis Tournament was canceled due to Covid 19, the tennis committee is still hard at work raising funds for this year’s charitable beneficiary. For the third consecutive year, the committee chose one of Sea Island Hunger Awareness Foundation’s (“SIHAF”) programs, the Blessing Basket.

The Blessing Basket touches so many of our neighbors. Monthly, the program distributes food to approximately 300 families living on Johns and Wadmalaw Islands whose income is below the poverty level. Funds raised through our efforts allow SIHAF to improve the quality of the food baskets with the addition of protein, fruit, and vegetables.

The committee would like to thank those who have donated this year and in prior years. For those who would like to donate and have not, checks should be made out to the Sea Island Hunger Awareness Foundation and Blessing Basket should be noted in the memo area. Checks should be mailed to Fleming Charitable Fundraising, 130 Gardener Circle, PMB-508, Seabrook Island, SC 29455. For information about the fundraising effort, please contact the Fundraising Chair, Krista Tillman, at  Information on the Blessing Basket can be found at

News pertinent to the Alan Fleming Tennis Tournament will be noted on the tournament website:
