Specials Being Offered by Local Restuarants

The Social Committee Chair brought to our attention that it might be nice to support local restaurants that are having a very difficult time now with the closure of dining-in at their restaurants.  In the past they have both been so good to Sea Trail residents in hosting Social Committee events.  They reached out to her and she asked that we share their information with all Sea Trail residents.

John Donaldson to Step Down | New Chair Needed for Landscape Committee

John Donaldson has been our Landscape Committee Chairperson for as long as I have been in Sea Trail and for many years before I got here. As you can see around Sea Trail, he has done a fantastic job. However, he says it is time for him to step down and let someone else take over. If you would like to take over this position, he will give you as much training as needed, please contact me at president@seatrailma.com.
