INTRODUCING THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE OF MONTHLY

September is the month when locals reclaim Hilton Head Island as visitors dwindle, and Lowcountry groups host a flurry of galas, auctions, art exhibits and other events. This is a month of creativity, bursting at the seams with energy. Our annual city guide highlights what makes the Lowcountry both unique and cherished. Efforts to preserve the unique Gullah culture get a shout out in this issue. We also present fresh editions of regular features including “Where are they Now?” and “What’s Cookin’.”
