MEMS hosts patriotic program to commemorate 9/11 anniversary

MEMS hosts patriotic program to commemorate 9/11 anniversary

“9/11 was not just one day. It was that day, as well as the days, months and years afterward.”
Those words hung in the air in the commons area of McColl Elementary/Middle School, spoken by a former New York City policeman who was on duty that terrible day in 2001.
This September 11 marked the 16th anniversary of the terrorist attacks that rocked America to its core. MEMS commemorated the occasion with a patriotic program the previous Thursday, September 7, with Officer Felix Cruz as special guest speaker.

County spared, but took steps to prepare for Hurricane Irma

County spared, but took steps to prepare for Hurricane Irma

Tropical Storm Irma brought wind gusts and rain as she made her way across Marlboro County Monday night, but the county was spared the more serious issues caused by the massive storm in other areas, with only sporadic power outages and no major damage reported locally.
Late last week, it appeared that then-Hurricane Irma, packing 185-mile-per-hour winds and weighing in as a strong Category 5 storm, might carve a path directly across eastern South Carolina.

Community kicks off March of Dimes’ 2017 March for Babies campaign

Community kicks off March of Dimes’ 2017 March for Babies campaign

Community members came together last Thursday, August 31, to kick off the March of Dimes’ 2017 Chesterfield-Marlboro March for Babies.
The march itself will take place Saturday, November 4, from First United Methodist Church in Bennettsville. Between now and then, teams of family members, friends and co-workers will raise money to help meet this year’s fundraising goal of $58,000.
March for Babies, previously called WalkAmerica, is the nation’s oldest fundraising and awareness walk, raising almost $2.5 billion since its inception in 1970 to fund research and programs aimed at preventing premature births, birth defects and infant deaths.
