SC RESIDENT'S HANDCRAFTED PEACE SOAP NOURISHES THE BODY AND FREES THE SPIRIT
Tucked back at the end of a long walkway on Sea Cliff Avenue in the center of the village sits Peace Soap, a garage transformed into a shop, which upon entering you will be greeted by a rainbow of colors and melange of fragrances emanating from the artisan soaps of the same name, as well as by a warm welcome from the shop's owner, Sea Cliff resident, Diane Bard.
As Ms. Bard, formally a floral designer, explains it, she was introduced to soap making by an old high school friend who had moved to an upstate farm. While there on a visit, her buddy suggested they make some soap, and although finding the suggestion a bit unusual, she took her up on it, and found the experience quite relaxing. READ MORE

IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RUN A VILLAGE
April 13, 2014 -- The Sea Cliff Village Board held its annual Organizational Meeting this past April 7th and at the meeting two new trustees, Elena Villafane and Kevin McGilloway were sworn in as new Trustees, replacing Peter Hayes and Tom Powell, each of whom did not seek re-election. Both Mr. Hayes and Mr. Powell spoke briefly, offering thanks to the current board and the community for having had the opportunity to serve, and applauding those who volunteer their time in service to Sea Cliff. Mr. Hayes commented "it takes a village to run a village." The dozens of community members who were appointed on Monday to serve on the many village committees and boards, were no doubt testament to the truth of the statement. Also at the meeting, Mayor Bruce Kennedy offered his thoughts on issues confronting the Village, as well as his thanks to those who have served Sea Cliff, in his State of the Village address.

ST. LUKE'S FLAMINGOS ARE BACK
Have you seen the large flock of pink flamingos roosting around Sea Cliff? They are a fundraiser for St. Luke's Church. For 40 days each Spring, a group of parishioners at St. Luke's move them from lawn to lawn around town each evening. Unsuspecting "victims" wake up to a spectacle on their lawn and a personal note from the friend who ordered the flocking. Souvenir flamingos are also available for purchase.
