Each year, Sunset Vision picks a project or two to support from the proceeds of the art show and other fundraising efforts throughout the year. Thanks to your support, Sunset Vision is able to purchase 2 gifts for the Town of Sunset Beach this year.
Living Shoreline Interpretive Sign
Working with the Town of Sunset Beach on the design, Sunset Vision purchased this interpretative kiosk, soon to be installed at the Sunset Beach Town Park, to educate park visitors about the living shoreline recently constructed at Mary’s Creek in conjunction with North Carolina Coastal Federation to protect the park against erosion.
Beach Accessible Wheelchairs
The Town of Sunset Beach currently has a handful of beach wheelchairs that our citizens and visitors with disabilities can rent for a nominal fee so that they can enjoy our beautiful beach. Unfortunately, some of the current chairs are outdated and are constantly in the shop for repairs. Sunset Vision has purchased 4 of these brand new chairs for the Town. Each chair features heavy duty wheels, non-corrosive plastic bearings, 2 swivel and 2 rigid wheels, padded cushion seat, user-friendly folding footrest, and an umbrella.
This year’s art show runs from Thursday, June 20th to Saturday, June 22nd. Proceeds from ticket sales, art purchases, and beer and wine sales at the show all go towards the purchase of these two gifts. We have our largest show to date, with 59 artists and 121 pieces of art! Come support the artists in our community, and help us continue to buy gifts for the Town of Sunset Beach! Tickets are still available for the Friday evening fundraising reception.

Sea Trail Property Owners,
Good afternoon all. I would love the opportunity to speak to you all in person but unfortunately time will not allow for that. I will be resigning as Director of Golf at Sea Trail Golf Club effective June 22. It saddens me to leave after 2 years with this company but I’ve received a couple opportunities that I cannot pass up and I feel the timing is right for such a transition. I’m expecting to make a final decision on my future employment in the next week or so. Once my decision is made, I’ll let you all know.
I have thoroughly enjoyed working with you the past 2 years and I will miss each and every one of you. People like you have always been a bright spot in my day and in my life, thank you for that. I wish you the very best moving forward and if you ever need to reach me you can email me at email@example.com.
Sea Trail has been a great place to work and has afforded me many opportunities and allowed me some of the most valuable relationships I have, and I am thankful for that. Thank you for being a part of my journey.

This event will be held on June 18th at 6 pm. For all of the details click HERE
Rip currents account for 80% of beach rescues, and can be dangerous or deadly if you don’t know what to do.
If you do happen to be caught in a rip current, stay calm. It won’t pull you under – it’ll just pull you away from shore. If you try to fight the rip current and swim against it, you’ll just get worn out. Instead – float!
If you can, wave and yell to get the attention of lifeguards and people on shore to let them know you need help.
If you’re a good swimmer, swim parallel to shore until you’ve cleared the pull of the rip current. Swim with the waves, allowing them to push you to shore.
If you’re on shore and see someone in trouble in a rip current do not go in after them. Instead – call for help! If a lifeguard is not available, throw in something that floats or extend a reaching object, but don’t try to be a hero and make the rescue yourself. Even trained lifeguards only attempt a rescue using a flotation device. Click HERE for additional information.
