Plan Ahead for Seabrook Point Ladies Luncheons

February’s luncheon will be in Bluffton at the Belfair Plantation.

The luncheon in March will be at Teri Hamill’s home on 20 Whale Branch Dr.

The April luncheon will be at Pat Smith’s home. Pat moved to North Charleston and wants to have a luncheon at her new home.

We will have car pools for both the Bluffton and the North Charleston luncheons.

We will send out more information, including directions at least a week before the luncheons.

December 14 Minutes of the Seabrook Point Property Owners Association Board Meeting

Attendees: Zach Curry, Janice Powell, Bob All, and Bob Roth. Don Smith, Angel Fleming, and Chad Cox also attended portions of the meeting.

The meeting was called to order at Zach Curry’s house at 6:30 PM. The Board approved the agenda and the minutes from the September 15th meeting.

Old Business

Covenant rewrite update: Still collecting comments from a survey sent out in the beginning of November. Survey results and plan for revision scheduled for the next board meeting.

Improved security for the boat ramp and dock area: The board decided to proceed with the gate proposal from Tracy Cosby ($870.00) and to analyze proposals for the fence surrounding the common area and possible conflicts with SCG&E easements. To be finalized at the next meeting.

Dock treatment: Collecting proposals for power washing and painting/treating the dock. Decision to be made at next meeting.

New Business

Angel Flewelling, President of the Exchange Clubs for the District of South Carolina, and Chad Cox, Principal of the Whale Branch Middle School, presented the concept of Exchange Clubs to the Board and solicited our support, including financial assistance, career presentations, and community participation. The board agreed to publicize their request to the community; Bob All expressed interest in presenting his experience as an entrepreneur to the students. See attached brochures.

The Board discussed methods for dealing with speeding vehicles in the community. Janice Powell will explore various “traffic calming” solutions and report at the next meeting.

Leading a discussion on drainage easements, Janice Powell alerted the Board to the potential problem of undersized and blocked or partially drainage culverts. This is a Roads Commission issue and will be referred to them.

Zach Curry brought up the issue of broadening the community’s use of a property management company to include at least covenant and restrictions notification and enforcement. Bob All, who works with most of the communities in the area, will review existing services and costs.

The Board also discussed the need for a funded reserve to include common area maintenance, dock repair and replacement, and road maintenance. Currently the SPPOA has a reserve in excess of $100,000. Analysis is needed to determine if this amount is sufficient or needs to be increased.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:00 PM. The next meeting is scheduled for 6:30 PM on January 25 at Zach Curry’s house.

Respectfully submitted,

Bob Roth, Secretary
Seabrook Point Property Owners Association

Opportunity to Make a Difference

Angel Flewelling, President of the Exchange Clubs for the District of South Carolina, and Chad Cox, Principal of the Whale Branch Middle School, presented the concept of Exchange Clubs to the Board and solicited our support, including financial assistance, career presentations, and community participation.

Exchange Clubs, a national network of local groups, strive to increase opportunities for local youths by exposing them to opportunities they would otherwise miss. In addition, they sponsor a range of community projects, including education to reduce child abuse. We have been invited to participate in the formation of a local Excel Club, the purpose of which is to organize school and community projects, such as presenting their experiences to students, helping to feed the hungry, tutoring students, and others.

Seabrook Point is blessed by residents with a diverse collection of talents and past experiences. The local Exchange Club offers us opportunities to enlighten and stimulate local students by sharing our experiences.

The Beaufort County Exchange Club is holding the inaugural meeting of the Excel Club on Tuesday, 1/26, at 3PM at the Whale Branch Middle School. They have invited us to attend. If you are interested either in attending or in the local Exchange Club and/or the Excel Club, please contact Angel Flewelling, angel@loganlawfirm.com.

January 2016 Seabrook Point Ladies Luncheon

Hello dear neighbors,

I would love for you to come see our new home and have our monthly Seabrook lunch here. Our new address is:  11B Rising Tide Drive, Beaufort, SC 29902  This is a condominium complex on Ribaut Island,  which is located near the hospital.

At the traffic light with Allison Road, take a right (if you’re coming from Hwy 21) and just before Cottage Farms, take another right at the Ribaut Island sign. Follow the winding road to the last building, there is a small  parking lot just before the building on the left. There are a few parking spots near the trail entrance and you could probably double park there. You can also park along the right side of the building.

I would appreciate it if you would let me know if you’re planning to come, so I can be sure to have enough plates ready. I will take care of the menu, so just come and enjoy!

Looking forward to seeing you on January 26, 2016, about noon.

Hetty Nijman
