Congrats Silver Pen Winners!
On April 29th, Marsh’s Edge awarded three scholarships to applicants in the St. Simons Islanda area. Winners were invited to join Members for a ceremony dinner to receive their awards. The Silver Pen Competition has been hosted by Marsh’s Edge’s parent company, The Maxwell Group, since 2012.
