Summer Activities Kick Off at Edisto

It’s hard to convey the uptick of activity that arrives during Memorial Day for beach towns like Edisto. Families plan their annual vacations around such holidays and so do local businesses that provide entertainment activities. The 2017 summer season in particular is more meaningful to Edisto’s local population because it follows seven months of continuous recovery, after the bedlam that Hurricane Matthew brought ashore last October.

The Edisto Island Open Land Trust (EIOLT) helps to protect the natural beauty and scenic vistas all over Edisto Island. Their annual cocktail party and fundraising auction for conservation minded patrons is held on June 16 at 42 Station Court. Jewelry, artwork, guided activities and one of a kind items associated with Edisto will be up for bids. A golfing event called the Tomato Open benefits EIOLT and is held the next day on Saturday June 17 and includes breakfast, lunch and multiple contests to win prizes, not to mention spending a day on the Plantation Golf Course.

Sometimes the best way to find out what is happening at Edisto is simply to pay them a visit and ask around. The Town of Edisto Beach is selling Sea oats for $1 a plant on June 5 for those wishing to help restore vegetation to the newly established sand dunes. The Edislo Java coffee shop at the pier is now offering breakfast, and they plan to move ahead with plans to utilize the same space as an upscale watering hole in the evenings.
