Hammock Coast Edition March/April 2022

11 www. ReadMPM. com | www.MountPl easantMagaz i ne. com | www.MountPl easantPodcas t . com Our magazines and podcasts always aim to capture precise moments in the story of East Cooper. Like time capsules, they allow us to revisit specific periods of time through words, photos, videos, facts and stats. Whether you choose to listen to or watch one of our podcasts — like www.VOICEforRealEstate. com or www.MountPleasantPodcast.com — or flip through the digital and print pages of our magazines, any of our media will preserve a particular moment and hopefully make it more memorable. In fact, the entire mission of media is to document the human experience. To prove my point, our March/April issue captures many moments and trends of the moment, from local news to coastal real estate. From Pawleys Island, DeBordieu and Georgetown to Mount Pleasant, Isle of Palms and Daniel Island, we’re sharing the images, locations and selling prices of some fabulous coastal Carolina homes in our annual Beautiful Homes issue. If you’d like to take a glimpse of what homes like these were being sold for back to 2017, visit TopTenHomesSold.com. This is amazing information. Elsewhere in this issue, you can access the event calendar for what’s going on in spring and early summer; learn how our very own Mount Pleasant Waterworks has been recognized nationally for their environmentally friendly project; visit area golf courses to get inspired for your next game; and even learn about local dentist Cason Hund, who took the recent PGA Expo in Orlando by storm with his new golf apparel. And make sure to flip through the pages of our special 2022 Best Of section, featuring local businesses who were voted by Mount Pleasant Magazine readers as being the best or one of the best in their specific industry. I also want to highlight our Charleston Women pages in this issue. Charleston Women, at ReadCW.com, has grown tremendously since its original version in 2014, known as Charleston Women In Business. This edition highlights Charleston’s very own roller derby team, the Lowcountry Highrollers. Their next moment in time is one you will not want to miss! Finally, please spend a minute and read what Lorna Hollifield wrote about her journey to take on the role of managing editor here at Mount Pleasant Magazine starting with the May/June 2022 issue. I believe her approach and passion will help the team here continue to provide you with the best magazine possible. We believe we serve the best community here in East Cooper, and y’all deserve a magazine that truly captures the best of what the surrounding communities can offer residents and visitors. One last comment: I wanted to personally thank our former editor Denise K. James, currently our copy editor, for stepping up and taking the reins so we could bring you this edition. Thank you, Denise.
