Message from Karrie Greene of Sea Greene Art

YOUR BUSINESS LOGO!!!

Hello, this is Karrie from Sea Greene Art! First and foremost, I want to extend my sincere appreciation for your outstanding generosity in supporting our local charities. Your contributions have made a world of difference to many, and we are deeply grateful for your unwavering commitment to our community.


As many of you may know, I have had the privilege of working closely with the Chamber of Commerce and quite a few of the local charities, assisting them in designing signage and incorporating your logos onto various promotional materials, including t-shirts. Throughout these collaborations, I've noticed a recurring challenge that both small and large businesses often face: the need for high-quality logo files.


Have you ever been approached and asked to provide vector artwork of your logo, leaving you uncertain about the next steps? Or perhaps you possess only a JPEG version of your logo, limiting its potential applications in marketing and branding? Or worse, your logo isn't a logo. It's a photo!

I'm here to provide a solution!


Today, I am thrilled to introduce an exclusive opportunity that can enhance your brand's versatility, aesthetics, and visual impact.

Professional logo conversion services, starting at an affordable $65. By utilizing this service, you will receive a comprehensive package that includes high-resolution PNG, SVG, and EPS files, ensuring your logo can be flawlessly integrated across a wide range of marketing materials.

If you're interested in taking your branding to the next level while simultaneously giving back to our community, I can be reached at Karrie@SeaGreeneArt.com



Thank you once again for your exceptional dedication to our community.

A Message From Shoreline Aviation!

Shoreline Aviation associates helped South Shore Home, Life & Style magazine and the South Shore Chamber of Commerce rock the evening September 13, at Weathervane Golf Club in Weymouth. The setting was the second annual BOSS Bash, celebrating the Best of the South Shore.


Best Local Airline/Airport went to Shoreline Aviation/Marshfield Municipal Airport KGHG, up against competition from the Cape to Rhode Island to Boston. Shoreline was represented at the fun-filled event by Lisa Scharoun, left, Keith Douglass, and Erin Mulcahy. The Shoreline team networked with other BOSS winners and fellow South Shore Chamber members and enjoyed the tastings of several outstanding restaurants, bakeries, distilleries, and brewers.


Shoreline is the fixed base operator (FBO) of the airport, which means it’s the company that manages KGHG for the town of Marshfield. Shoreline also operates a global charter flight service, a renowned aircraft maintenance department, aircraft sales and management services, and flight instruction. Shoreline, headquartered in Marshfield, has an office in Palm Beach, FL. The company operates a fleet of turboprop, and light, medium and large jet aircraft, flown by highly experienced, licensed pilots.
