At the Helm

Dear reader... 

At Monthly we are full of enthusiasm and ready to enjoy the upcoming spring season.

As nature shows off its beauty this month, we are pleased to show off the Lowcountry.

The area’s altruism is exemplified in Jessie’s Wish, a Blufftonbased nonprofit that helps support children during cancer treatment. The foundation aims to bring joy to kids who need a lift.

Watterson Brands — led by Billy Watterson – has built a business portfolio that’s had an immediate impact on the Lowcountry. The brand’s businesses are part of a philanthropic effort that gives thousands of dollars back to the community.

To help you further enjoy the outdoors this spring, we offer a primer on snake species: which ones are friendly and which ones are venomous. These tips will help you safely explore the area.

The Hilton Head International Piano Competition will be the focus of entertainment this month. Presented by the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra, the event is in its 27th year. We offer a preview and salute retiring competition director, Mona Huff.

We are highlighting the essential chefs who feed our community with our Top Chefs section. Read the stories behind the culinary artists who regale us with savory foods.

Speaking of food, outdoor pizza ovens have become an instant pandemic cooking trend. Inside you’ll find tips on the brands that will help you make a Neapolitan-style pizza in your backyard.

The coronavirus pandemic continues to impact children and families, with one of the biggest being how children deal with anxiety. Health experts offer advice and resources to help with mental health issues that may impact your children’s health.

Parker Stewart is a 7-year-old race car wunderkind. Read about the Bluffton child’s racing exploits and his dream of becoming an F1 driver.

Thank you for inviting us into your lives. Enjoy your Lowcountry spring.
