SEADOGS Annual Beach Walk and Yappy Hour September 16

SEADOGS, the Seabrook Island dog and beach advocacy group, (aka SIDOGS) announced today that the Annual Beach Walk and Yappy Hour will take place on Friday, September 16, 2022, starting at 5:00 pm on North Beach. The rain date for the event will be Saturday, September 17 at the same time and place. The Beach Walk is a tradition that has helped the Seabrook Island community combine fun for dogs (and their humans) with charitable giving to worthy area animal causes.

For the dogs, the Beach Walk is a great time to run and play on the beach with other friendly dogs in the community. For humans, there is the satisfaction of being able to take advantage of this wonderful feature of Seabrook Island. Past President Mitch Pulwer has stated: “The SEADOGS Beach Walk is a community celebration of the joy dogs and their owners have while playing on the Seabrook Island beach. It is an added bonus that the event raises funds for other animals in the area that aren’t as fortunate.”

All residents of Seabrook Island are invited to join the SEADOGS Beach Walk and Yappy Hour. Access to North Beach is through Boardwalks 1 or 2. Beer, wine, and chips/pretzels will be provided by SEADOGS. Water for both humans and dogs will also be provided. If you wish to bring something else to drink for yourself, please remember that glass bottles are not allowed on the beach. Your dog will have fun, and so will you!

This year, SEADOGS has designated Lowcountry Lab Rescue to be the charity for giving. Volunteers from their organization will be in attendance to provide more information and answer questions.

Although not a requirement for attendance, please consider being generous to area dogs at Lowcountry Lab Rescue by bringing a donation to the event. Checks can be made out directly to Lowcountry Lab Rescue. More information on Lowcountry Lab Rescue can be found at 

According to the website, Lowcountry Lab Rescue (LLR) is a 501(c)(3) animal welfare organization in South Carolina that rescues and rehomes stray and unwanted Labrador Retrievers from life-threatening situations. LLR promotes responsible Labrador ownership through breed education and spay and neuter advocacy to prevent abandonment and homelessness of Labrador Retrievers and is funded by donations.

Lowcountry Lab Rescue is run completely by volunteers with full-time jobs doing something else, such as teacher, lawyer, “mom”, sales rep, engineer, nurse, or a business owner. They rely on donations to fund operations and save Labrador Retrievers.

For more information on the event, or about SEADOGS, please visit our website We look forward to seeing you and your pups!

Help Mt. Zion Kids, Please!

Contrary to what you might think, many typical school supplies are not provided for the students and teachers in the Charleston County School District. Thankfully, for over ten years, the residents on Kiawah, Seabrook, and Johns Islands have generously purchased pencils, erasers, school uniforms, composition paper, and other routine supplies for use in Mt. Zion Elementary School.

Considering the needs of Mt. Zion students, we are again reaching out for your support. Again this year, we ask you to make a monetary donation and let us do the shopping on your behalf based on each teacher’s Wish List. We will use the funds received to purchase supplies and uniforms before the school year begins and as needed. Your support goes even further this year if we receive your donations before the state’s tax-free weekend, which begins on August 6.

Please make your check payable to “Support Mt. Zion Kids” and mail it to:

Support Mt. Zion Kids
c/o Lucy Hoover
2824 Dove Nest Ct.
Johns Island, SC 29455

“Support Mt. Zion Kids” is now a 501(c)(3) organization, EIN 87-1854050. Our organization will send a donor acknowledgment letter to each contributor.

Please note that later in the school year, another organization, Mt. Zion Holiday Fund, will ask for donations to provide holiday gifts and meals for some Mt. Zion families. Please watch for their notices as we approach that season.

Stores that Support Education

Another way we can help the students at Mt. Zion is when you shop at various participating stores. This program works no matter where you live.

  • Ask your cashier at Harris Teeter to enter the school number “3455” into the register when you use your VIC card.  You can also annually activate this donation online. By doing this, you donate a portion of your spending to Mt. Zion Elementary each time you shop and purchase “Together in Education” items.
  • If you have an Office Depot credit card, please ask the sales associate at the register to credit Mt. Zion Elementary (school ID# 70090775). The school will receive 5% of any purchases you make annually.
  • Staples also has a rewards program that can be used for purchases.  
  • Finally, if you have a Target credit card, you can register on the Target website for Mt. Zion Elementary. These businesses donate a portion of sales dollars to local schools.

Happy Hours to Honor Local Nurses

Blind Tiger Pub, Fatty’s Beer Works, Frothy Beard and Seabrook artist Deane Bowers of The Together While Apart Art Project invite everyone to attend three different Happy Hours during the month of June to celebrate our local nurses. Nurses are the heartbeat of our community and they have been stretched to the limits over the past two years. These Happy Hours are a fun way to celebrate our local heroes and thank them for their service, bravery and dedication. Please bring your favorite nurse and come out to celebrate. 

All nurses attending will receive a small gift of appreciation from The Together While Apart Art Project, which will also be on display. A portion of the proceeds will benefit The Together While Apart Project’s Thank You Nurses Campaign, a fundraising campaign that supports The American Nurses Foundation’s Wellness Initiative Programs. The Blood Connection Bus will hold a blood drive at Frothy Beard.
