Call for Volunteers – Restoring Island Signage

Dear Community Members,

We would like to gather a group of volunteers to help us paint our various signs around the community.  As you all know, the weather takes its toll on the signage over the years, and we are seeking volunteers who will assist us in helping restore these signs and beautify the island. 

The signs in need of a little “TLC” include the signage at our docks as well as those along our roadways.  This is a great way to get involved in helping make a community even more beautiful.  Please contact Catherine at catherine@deweesislandsc.com if you are interested in lending a hand.  We will set a time and date that works best for those who want to participate and will provide all the paint and tools needed.  Thanks in advance for your willingness to help!

Dewees Island Welcomes Captain Cindy Holland

Dewees Island welcomes our newest POA Staff member, Captain Cindy Holland. Cindy relocated to the Charleston area with her spouse in December 2017. As a Columbia, SC native, Cindy grew up near the lake and always enjoyed being on the water. She moved to Hilton Head in 1972 and got her captain’s license a few years after. During her time in Hilton Head, she lived on a boat at a local marina and worked for Haig Point Ferry Company transporting passengers between Hilton Head and Daufuskie Island for 25 years!

Cindy is retired. However, she is looking forward to working with Dewees Island and our ferry department part-time.

During her free time, Cindy enjoys fishing, kayaking, and all things related to nature.

Please give Cindy a warm welcome when you see her on the ferries.
