Brunswick County Literacy Council Wine Dinner

We hope you can find a moment during this busy holiday season to look at your calendars to see whether Monday, January 21, 2019, is open. That’s the date of the Brunswick County Literacy Council wine dinner at La Cucina in Sunset Beach, and we invite you to join us for an evening of good food and wine for a good cause.

Tickets are by advance reservation only and are $60, including tax and tip, to be paid at the event.  To make reservations, call La Cucina Italian Grill at (910) 579-9777.

The chef prepares a special menu for this private event with two seatings at 5:30 and 7:30. Four courses are paired with specially selected wines, and there will be two wine basket raffles at each seating.  Don’t wait too long to make reservations as both seatings sold out fast for the January 2018 dinner.

Those from Sea Trail who have been to previous dinners know to expect four courses of flavorful food, each paired with a specially selected wine.  If you haven’t attended before, this is a good opportunity to enjoy an out-of-the-ordinary menu with well-matched wines in the company of others who recognize the importance of the council’s mission to improve lives by providing literacy skills for adults.

Thank you, and if you know others who would be interested in the wine dinner, please share this notice with them.

President’s Message: December 12, 2018 UPDATE

The busy holiday season is upon us and Sea Trail looks absolutely beautiful. Our neighborhoods are all lit up and Priscilla Donaldson and crew did a fantastic job of decorating our facilities.

Please be respectful of the allotted reservation time when using our amenities. Attempting to access a room early and/or extend past the reservation time can impact the ability for that amenity to be cleaned, as well as another group that has reserved that amenity. The cleaning person adjusts her schedule to work around the scheduled reservations, so please be respectful of that effort and the desire to keep our amenities clean and useable.

The STMA Annual New Year’s Eve Party will be held at the Pink Palace on Monday December 31 starting at 7:30-midnight. The cost is $45.00 per person which includes Appetizers, Pork Tenderloin, and Dessert. BYOB.  To see more details on our website CLICK  

UPDATE:  Oooops! I made a mistake!!! In my last email blast I stated the price for the New Years Eve dinner as $45.00 per person. I was wrong. The cost per person is $22.50.  Now that’s a bargain. I apologize for the error. 

Next year’s Dining Around needs your help. They need people to host the following months: February 4th, March 4th, September 10th, and November 4th. If you are interested, please contact Joann Abrams.

Some of you recently received an email from Sea Trail Golf about a $32.00 rate for homeowners guests. You will need your gold property owner card to get this rate. Several of you emailed me saying that you lost your card or never received one. The price to replace this card is $10.00. Sea Trail Corp has offered to homeowners a grace period to obtain the Gold Card for free from December 26th thru January 31st. You can get your free card at the Sea Trail Corp office.
