At the Helm

Thanksgiving gives us an opportunity to reflect and appreciate what is important to us. We appreciate you, our loyal readers. We don’t take for granted our responsibility as the “Voice of the Lowcountry,” and we are thankful we can share with you the area’s most compelling stories. 

Our community is blessed to have so many people who inspire us. This month learn about Bluffton veteran Gustavo Gomez, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan and turned to his love of baseball to help him cope with post-traumatic stress disorder. 

Jennie Kitty advocated for health initiatives for three decades throughout Bluffton’s African American community and Lowcountry. She dedicated her life to helping others. Read about her life and how she was honored this year. 

The Hilton Head Island Concours d’Elegance & Motoring Festival returns with events this month. We spotlight a can’t-miss VIP gala and talk with two organizers of the prominent Grand Stutz event. 

Sea Pines Country Club was the stunning location for our fall fashion shoot, shot by Mike Ritterbeck Photography. We appreciate all who helped make the shoot a success. 

We also have the holidays in mind and our annual gift guide will get you prepared. 

Shopping local is essential to a thriving community. We look at the impact of visiting our stores and why it’s vital to continue to support locally owned businesses that help unite the community. 

The Lowcountry is one of the leading retirement destinations. Learn why our beautiful area has become such a treasured playground and landing spot for so many seniors. 

We hope this season we all have an opportunity to spend time with our loved ones and express our gratitude. It’s important to give thanks for what we have and to show appreciation for those we love. 

From everybody at the Monthly team, 

Happy Thanksgiving.
