Meeting Reminder

Our October Association meeting is Thursday, October 15 at 6:30 p.m. We will be meeting in the Fellowship Hall (basement) of State Street Baptist Church.

Meetings typically last about an hour; light refreshments will be served.


Our featured speaker is the Congaree Riverkeeper Bill Strangler. You can read his biographcy at http://www.congareeriverkeeper.org/riverkeeper.  With the recent flooding challenges the Midlands has faced, it is a good time to learn more about our rivers and how to keep them healthy.

A public safety officer will at be the meeting to give us an update on crime in our are and note any attendee concerns.
