Presidential candidate Kamala Harris campaigns in Marlboro County Sunday

U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris brought her presidential bid to Marlboro County on Sunday.
She attended and spoke briefly at the services at Greater St. James Missionary Baptist Church and Community of Grace Church, had lunch at Genesis Restaurant and held a meet and greet at Grace Temple Church in Wallace.
Rep. Pat Henegan, who is co-chair of the S.C. campaign, introduced Harris at each event. She noted people don’t care about how much a person knows until they know that the person cares about them.
“Sen. Harris cares about people in every state I have been with her on,” Henegan said. “Sen Harris is the People’s Champ.” 
She added Harris has a positive political background and is willing to be the voice in the White House.

Town of Clio has Thanksgiving dinner

It was a time of food and fellowship during the annual Clio Thanksgiving dinner on Nov. 23.
Mayor Joe Kinney said the gathering was about peace and harmony with one another.
For the first time, the event was held at the former School of Discovery.
“It’s good to be here and to space out a little bit and have a joyful time. We welcome you here to fellowship with one another.”
Eva McRae, an organizer of the event, started it five years ago with a vision from God.
“It’s not so much about food,” she said. “But it is about coming together to show love to one another.”
It can be shown in many ways through helping  those in the community in need of love.
