The Charlestones are an a cappella quartet consisting of Todd Monsell (bass), Brink Norton (tenor), William Purcell (lead), and Stephen Spaulding (baritone). They have quickly made a name for themselves with their trademark flawless intonation, rocksteady camaraderie, and a wide variety of vocal styles.

SIPOA COVID Update, August 30, 2021

Throughout the pandemic, SIPOA has implemented prudent and well-researched policies for our facilities. These policies are not static and are adapted to respond to new data we receive. 

SIPOA and many other businesses, employers, and communities participate in the MUSC Back2Business program. The program guides participants in their efforts to prevent/mitigate COVID in their respective settings. 

Last month, we relaxed our mask mandate and changed it to “strongly recommend, but not require” masks because we weren’t yet seeing data showing the impact of the Delta variant. However, as the Delta variant has gained a foothold, we continue to learn of its effects. Even vaccinated individuals, and those originally believed to be at low risk, continue to be in danger of getting the virus, and perhaps worse, of spreading it to others. 

Therefore, in an effort to prevent/mitigate the virus and preserve our community health overall, we looked to MUSC for general guidance on mask requirements in light of the Delta variant data, as well as how a mask requirement would affect our specific facility use, with particular attention to a fitness center setting.

Following MUSC’s example for building and wellness center mask use, and after consultation with the Board of Directors, SIPOA will be re-instituting the requirement for masks inside SIPOA buildings – Admin Office, Lake House, Community Center, Gatehouse, and Maintenance – effective 9/1/21. However, there is an exception for individuals who are actively exercising inside the Lake House. Individuals who are exercising may remove their masks while doing so, but should maintain social distancing whenever possible, and wear masks when interacting with others at a distance of less than 6’. 

With your help, we can continue to keep our community safe and healthy. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding in these dynamic times.

Turtle Patrol Report for the Week Ending August 29

Nest 75

The Turtle Patrol got quite a surprise on Friday when morning walkers discovered a brand new crawl that led to nest 75! This nest comes 34 days after our most recent 2021 nest was laid and is Seabrook Island’s latest recorded nest. Zone 3 walkers Jane M, Joe F and Sandy M called in a crawl with a promising body pit north of Boardwalk 6. Valerie and Mark D responded, located the nest, and moved it back into the dune. We thought we were done with new nests, but now we wonder – will nest 75 be our last of the season? As of now, 13 of this year’s 75 nests remain on the beach, but the recent addition of nest 75 means the season will extend well into October.

Pyrite aka Christy Update

Remember Pyrite aka Christy, our live stranding Kemp’s Ridley? Well Pyrite now has a page on the SC Aquarium website at the link below. Additionally, Pyrite has a new roomie – Amethyst! These two are sharing a tank to make room for more patients. Keep an eye on their pages for updates!

Call for Candidates

SIPOA Needs Your Help!

The Seabrook Island Property Owners Association (SIPOA) is very fortunate in that it is an effective, well-managed, self-governed entity. Self-governance gives each property owner an opportunity to participate in guiding the Association forward. Self-governance allows property owners, as members of their elected Board of Directors, to represent all members of the community and create policies and strategic plans for the current and future needs of the Association. SIPOA’s continued success is dependent on committed property owners who are willing to dedicate their time. Without these dedicated, individual representatives, property owners would have far less impact on the strategic operation of the Island.

The SIPOA Nominating Committee is on the lookout for individuals who want to be part of the solution by serving on the Board of Directors or the Nominating Committee. In the 2022 Seabrook Island Property Owners Association election, candidates are needed for four (4) three-year terms on the Board of Directors and two (2) two-year term positions on the Nominating Committee.

If you are interested in running for the Board of Directors or Nominating Committee, click here for the application forms, important information, and frequently asked questions.
