The thought of insurance and the act of procuring it, whether it’s life, health, or home, rarely engenders much enthusiasm.  Instead it generally conjures up a range of emotions that range from befuddlement to abject dread.  So it’s refreshing to learn that local businessman Chuck Fitzpatrick, with his small, independently owned, family run business, the …

A Message from Our Team

October is the harvest season.  Just as there’s a collective gathering of the now ripe seeds that have been sown in the fields and farms around us, this is a time for us at the Insider to reflect on everything we’ve been cultivating since the New Year.  We’ve forged many new relationships in the community since that time, with North Myrtle Beach, Little River, Carolina Forest, Myrtle Beach, and Market Common, as well as strengthened old ones.  And we are grateful for all of them. 

Last week I was inspired by an art exhibit in Atlanta that posed a question about building community: When is the last time you opened up to a stranger?  People in your community aren’t strangers once you get to know them.  Our sandy shores are renowned for harboring a melting pot of friendly people from all over the country and world.  We are all looking for a sense of community, and I hope this month, you’ll challenge yourself to reach out to someone new and see where it takes you. 

Inside our publication, be sure to check out the front page story about the upcoming black tie fundraiser for the March of Dimes.  We love their mission of serving mothers and babies, of giving our future generations the best possible start in life.  And in keeping with the theme of health, Juiced Up (pg. 1) just opened in the Market Common.  Sisters Leonella and Lorenna are bringing a new way of healthy living to the area with their line of juices and recipes tailored to specific body types and needs.  We think this addition is a great complement to the variety of coffee shops and restaurants that already exist, and can’t wait to try them out!
