SEADOGS Beach Walk, April 25, 2019

SEADOGS, the Seabrook Island dog and beach advocacy group, announced today that the annual Beach Walk will take place on April 25, 2019, starting at 5:00 pm on North Beach. 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, 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 a wonderful feature of Seabrook island. President Mitch Pulwer has participated in numerous Beach Walks and 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.”

BIFMC Expands Care to Serve Uninsured on Folly Beach

Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic is thrilled to announce that as of April 1st, 2019, the free clinic will be accepting low income, uninsured adults who live or work on Folly Beach in addition to Johns, James and Wadmalaw Island.

The announcement comes on the one year anniversary marking the expansion of the free medical clinic into a brand new, 7- exam room medical facility.
Founded in 2006 by Drs. Charlie Davis and the late Arthur S. Booth, the free clinic set out to provide a medical home and continuing primary health care to uninsured adults living or working at or below 200% of the Federal poverty level on Johns, Wadmalaw or James Island. Since clinic doors opened in 2008, the Clinic has grown to serve over 4,500 uninsured patients across the Lowcountry, treating patients with diabetes, hypertension, coronary disease, depression, and more. Patient services also include low or no-cost generic prescriptions as needed, and free imaging and scans provided by Roper St. Francis Hospital.

All patient services and referrals are free of charge, thanks to donations and grants from the community and a large medical volunteer base. An affiliate of the Volunteers In Medicine organization, the clinic utilizes the volunteers efforts of 138 medical professionals and staff, many who have retired but still hold a license to practice in the state of South Carolina. Currently, Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic provides free primary care to over 400 uninsured patients each month; the Clinic estimates that the new, seven exam room facility better positions the Clinic to accommodate more than 600 individuals per month. The Board voted to take on uninsured adults who live or work on Folly Beach in February. Clinic Director Brenda Falls states, “We have long hoped to expand our free services and care to this population of the Barrier Islands; with the expansion of our medical facility we can now see this commitment through and increase our patient base.” “Many who work in the hospitality industry on Folly Beach may benefit from this expansion in particular,” says Outreach Specialist, Carrie Moores. “We hope that employers who cannot afford to offer health insurance benefits to their employees will help us spread the word, on Folly Beach as well as across Johns, James and Wadmalaw Islands.”

The Clinic continues to fundraise in order to outfit the new building with medical equipment and furnishings. Adults between the ages of 18 and 65 who either live or work on Folly Beach and do not currently have health insurance should call the clinic at 843-266-9800 or visit www.bifmc.org to learn more about eligibility.

Seabrook Artists Guild Meeting, Tuesday April 16 at the Lake House

The Seabrook Island Artist Guild will welcome Charleston artist Chris Groves at the April 16th monthly meeting. Chris will give a demonstration of his skill at the meeting, which begins at 2:00 pm in Live Oak Hall at the Lake House. About his technique, Chris writes: “I begin every painting with a monochromatic underpainting to establish values and a rough composition. I paint in a series of layers, adding information and color to each layer in order to establish many things such as balance, gesture, harmony, as well as area of interest. Once piece has dried, I will go into layers of glaze, to help refine and adjust the overall finish of the painting. A combination of classical techniques, as well as things I have learned and invented along the journey.”

Everyone is welcome to come to the meeting. To learn more about Chris Groves, his website is www.cgroves.com.

Correction to 45 and 10 Celebration April 26 at the Lake House

Our original post mentioned two bands, the First Class Band and the Pat Boone Project. It has come to our attention that these are, in fact, two names for one band, the correct name being the First Class Band/Pat Boone Project.

We apologize for any inconvenience our misunderstanding may have caused and look forward to seeing y’all at the 45 and 10 celebrations.
