The Fountain Inn Chamber of Commerce has been an advocate for both businesses and Fountain Inn’s Citizens for decades. In our ever changing and growing town we strive to continue to adapt to the needs of our members. Our goal is to provide the best help and advocacy possible on their behalf.

Our efforts of community engagement range widely from our wellknown events such as Business After Hours, Aunt Het Festival, The Christmas Parade, Taste Inn, Clay Shoot and our Annual Banquet. Moving forward we are committed to improving on our Personal Development and Business development initiatives. We are seeing more needs in these areas for our members and aim to fill that need. Reach out

to your Chamber to learn more about these opportunities.

So no matter whether you are new to Fountain Inn or a lifelong resident, there are plenty of opportunities and advantages awaiting you with membership in the Fountain Inn Chamber of Commerce. We look forward to seeing you at one of our events or in our office on Depot St.

On behalf of Myself and the Board of Directors, thank you for your continued support of our members and supporting our local businesses!

I hope that whether you’re picking up the latest edition of this annual publication as a longtime resident, a business owner, a visitor, or a newcomer, that you’ve found your place right here in Fountain Inn!

Our small town has seen tremendous growth over these last five years. All the while though, we’ve kept that “small town charm” that makes us the best city in America to call home.

From our walkable, quaint, and vibrant downtown, to one of our many parks, to our beautiful neighborhoods - Fountain Inn is full of everything you’d want in your hometown.

Throughout the year, our community is brimming with activity for everyone in the family. Commerce Park, situated right in the heart of downtown, features an outdoor amphitheater and covered farmer’s market. The Visitors Center located in the Park houses our Chamber of Commerce and Fountain Inn History Museum. Commerce Park is home to our summer concerts, seasonal farmers market, and many of our other events throughout the year.

Around Commerce Park you’ll find shops, restaurants, and much more around our historic Main Street district. With nearly two dozen businesses opened over the last four years, we’ve seen some great growth in our downtown. Stay tuned though for more - we’re about to upgrade the southern portion of our Main Street, and new businesses are in the works a block off of Main Street at the old Flour Mill and surrounding properties. Big things are in store for our downtown!

Outside of downtown, residents and visitors can enjoy numerous parks. Our always active Emanuel Sullivan Sports Complex features baseball fields, football fields, and a large shaded playground, with a passive trail behind it that winds its way from the ball fields to another park, Fairview Street Park with basketball courts. Our PD Terry Park is another active recreation site just off of Main Street, and our two neighborhood parks, Georgia Street and Sanctified Hill, are great to take the kids to any day of the week.

Sanctified Hill Park will complete its total facelift in 2023, a $3 million upgrade that will include new playground equipment, basketball courts, field space, and picnic shelters. The trail behind Emanuel Sullivan Sports Complex is also set for an overhaul for better bike and pedestrian traffic.

Our schools continue to be excellent on all fronts. Our elementary schools (Fountain Inn Elementary, Bryson Elementary, and Rudolph Gordon School) are all within a very short drive wherever you live in town, and our middle schools (Bryson Middle, Rudolph Gordon School) are also nearby. Fountain Inn High School is entering its third year in the fall of 2023, and has continued to breathe renewed community spirit into our town. The “First Friday” parade is held each year in August to celebrate the start of fall sports and our marching band, and then Friday Night Lights take over and you can find nearly the whole town at the High School’s stadium for home games.

Fountain Inn is home to so much, but most importantly, it’s home to wonderful people who care for each other. We are a resilient community that is beaming with pride for our hometown, and we stand together as we move into the future.

It is an honor to serve as Mayor of this community, and I look forward to seeing you soon!

Welcome home, to Fountain Inn.

The goal of the Fountain Inn Museum is to provide all visitors with a clear view of our town’s history, from its humble beginnings to the increasing growth that led to the prospects now within sight. A secure footing in our history will enable tomorrow’s leaders to take on the unique challenges of the 21st century.

The Museum opened its doors in 2010 as part of the Fountain Inn’s Commerce Park project. The goal of this project was not just to document our town’s history as a stagecoach stop between Charleston and North Carolina, but also to show how we have advanced from a rural farming population to a town with high tech and manufacturing industries.

An appreciation of Fountain Inn’s history includes exhibits reflecting the time when Native Americans inhabited the Upstate. As European settlers began to arrive, roads and buildings soon followed, establishing communities that grew into small towns. The Mu-

seum’s exhibits and displays, many of which have been improved upon by our 2022 ARPA Grant, take visitors on a chronological tour of our city’s growth, clearly illustrating the special heritage Fountain Inn holds. As well as its permanent exhibits, the Museum hosts seasonal displays in both its main hall and the SC Humanities Gallery that was added in 2019.

The Museum offers innovative programs and tours such as our Hooked-On History program that is perfect for student groups from elementary school through high school. This program features entertainers and guest speakers from all over the state who provide a comprehensive insight into both Fountain Inn and South Carolina’s history. The series highlights some of our town’s most notable residents such as Robert Quillen, the internationally recognized author and publisher of the Fountain Inn Tribune, and “Peg Leg” Bates, an incredible one-legged dancer who performed for millions worldwide.

Recent happenings for the Fountain Inn Museum include our new On the Banks of Durbin Creek video display that was funded through an additional SC Humanities Grant. It depicts a living history of the successive waves of civilization that gave birth to the unique community of Fountain Inn. Durbin Creek is the location of Fountain Inn’s beloved Jones Mill. Plans and funding are in place to restore the old grist mill back to its former glory with our Jones Mill Project so that visitors will be able to enjoy the Mill’s history just as much as we do.

So, make the Museum part of your visit to Fountain Inn and experience how our history comes alive through our exhibits, programs, and guest speakers throughout the year. Located in the heart of our flourishing town, the Fountain Inn Museum is an excellent place to take in the history, learn about the cultures, and experience the exceptional atmosphere our town has to offer!



The first new high school built in Greenville County in over two decades opened for ninth grade students in 2021-2022. The school will add a grade level each year until fully populated in 2024-2025. Fountain Inn High School provides students with new challenges and opportunities that go above and beyond the standard high school curriculum. The school will serve over one thousand students in grades nine through twelve by the 2024 - 2025 school year with the capacity to expand to serve up to two thousand students as the population grows.

Fountain Inn High School has a unique instructional design. In addition to the core academic courses, FIHS offers opportunities for students to personalize their course pathways to connect to industry-recognized certifications as well as Associate’s and Bachelor’s degree programs through partnerships with Greenville Technical College and articulation to state colleges and universities. Career and Technology Education (CTE) pathways in Engineering, Computer Science, and Advanced Manufacturing are accessible to all students through advanced CTE programs included in the Institute of Automation and Engineering . Experiences such as mentoring, job shadowing, service projects, and internships are woven throughout the pathways to engage students with industry and community partners at each grade level. Students have intentional opportunities to apply the knowledge they are learning in traditional coursework through project-based learning and connections to their community. Our vision is that every student will graduate from high school ready for college, careers, and to engage as active citizens in their communities.

This is an exciting time to be a part of public education in Greenville County. This high school offers the opportunity to design an instructional program to meet the personalized learning needs of 21st century graduates. Fountain Inn High School is a model for innovation in South Carolina. Through the unique design of our school facility and cutting edge instructional programs we actively engage students in their own success. I am honored to serve as the first principal and am looking forward to helping guide this process as we create pathways to the future for every student at FIHS!

Main Street is a nationally-recognized technical assistance program that empowers communities as they revitalize their historic downtowns, encouraging economic development and historic preservation.

Downtown Fountain Inn became an aspiring South Carolina Main Street community in 2021. The goal of our program is to honor and preserve our historic community while strengthening the social and economic health of our downtown.

Fountain Inn’s Main Street program has four areas of focus. Design, organization, promotion, and economic vitality. Design focuses on enhancing the physical and visual assets that make our community the best place to live, work, and play. Organization involves creating a strong foundation for a sustainable revitalization effort, including cultivating partnerships, community involvement, and resources for the district. Promotion positions our downtown as the heart of our community as a hub for economic activity while creating a positive image that showcases our community’s unique history and character. Economic Vitality focuses on capital, incentives, and other economic and financial tools to assist new and existing businesses, catalyze property development, and create a supportive environment for entrepreneurs and innovators that drive local economies.

Main Street is important to our local community because: It creates jobs – A revitalized downtown attracts new industries and strengthens service and retail job markets. It saves tax dollars –Revitalization stabilizes and improves a downtown’s tax base while also protecting existing investments. It preserves a community’s historic resources – In an economically healthy downtown, property owners maintain their historic buildings and preserves an essential part of their community’s heritage and identity. It builds community pride – Main Street provides a public space for community members to come together, create new partnerships and celebrate their downtown.


What would you do with an unexpected tax rebate of $50,000 or $100,000? This question is being asked by many small business owners and directors of non-profit organizations who are taking advantage of the Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERC), a part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act or CARES Act, which was passed by Congress in March of 2020. The ERC includes funds to help business owners who kept W-2 employees on their payroll during 2020 (Q2–Q4) and 2021 (Q1–Q3). It’s designed to reward employers hit hardest by the effects of the pandemic for retaining part or all of their workforce despite a loss in revenue or ability to function as a business. The ERC started in 2020, and wages through September 30, 2021, are eligible for the credit. Attributes of this tax credit include:

• Up to $26,000 per W-2 employee

• ERC is a refundable tax credit (it is not a loan like PPP)

• No restrictions on use

• Eligible with full/partial closure, supply chain disruption, or reduced revenue

• IRS distributes your funds within 3–6 months (typically)

In November 2021, the requirements for eligibility for ERC were significantly eased so now more businesses are eligible than when the ERC was first introduced in 2020. For example, businesses are now eligible if they had supply chain disruptions that materially affected their business. Businesses are eligible now even if they had previously taken Payroll Protection Program (PPP) loans. Eligible businesses often include restaurants, dentists offices, manufacturers, retail stores, gyms, real-estate offices, construction businesses, auto-body shops, day care & learning centers, private schools to name a few. A business that is eligible can receive up to 6 tax refund checks, one for each quarter that they are eligible for between 2Q 2020 and 3Q 2021 depending on the impact of the pandemic on their business.

Tax Rebates Specialists (TRS) is a company that specializes in helping businesses and nonprofits apply for ERC tax rebates. My team of local TRS affiliates serve the upstate of South Carolina with a goal to put $5 Million in ERC tax rebates back in the hands of small businesses and nonprofits between now and May 2023. Many of our local businesses and non-profit organizations struggled during the pandemic. The ERC can

measurably help them and we make the application process simple for our clients. Chris Urban, a local business owner for Innovative Surface Solutions said this about working with Joe Citeno at Tax Rebate Specialists, “The process was simple because Joe made it simple.”

TRS is backed by a processing team of experts that has completed more than 30,000 ERC applications for businesses across the United States. Rather than having to navigate the complex tax code, TRS clients fill out a 2-minute pre-qualification form and then a simple 15 minute questionnaire. Clients securely upload required tax and payroll documents and wait 10-15 days for a complete expert analysis provided at no cost. The return on investment of time can range from 10’s to 100’s of thousand of dollars depending on the business. To find out if your business or non-profit qualifies for the ERC, call 864-230-1006 to make an appointment to get a no-cost, no-obligation estimate of your potential rebate.

Joe Citeno is a retired executive from a successful 30 year career as an executive with a Fortune 500 company. Joe decided to invest time helping local businesses and nonprofits that were impacted during the pandemic operating a business as an affiliate with Tax Rebate Specialists and recently joined the Fountain Inn Chamber of Commerce. Joe and his family have lived in Mauldin for more than 22 years.

Year two of FIHS Athletics has been full of excitement and continued first. The Fury joined the South Carolina High School League and Region II-3A for varsity competition. Most of our programs have moved to the varsity level along with sub varsity teams and a chance to compete in the SCHSL Playoffs.

Our Fall season continued leading the way with our second All State athlete in Maarijka Ashworth placing 3rd in the Girls 500 Yard Freestyle leading her team to an 18th place finish. Maarijka’s sister Kalie, was our first All State athlete last year in cross country. The boys team and girls team qualified for the AAA State Championships again in Cross Country with Kalie Ashworth taking home All Region honors for the year. Volleyball had a successful year becoming our schools first ever team to qualify for the AAA SCHSL Playoffs, led by All Region player Kassidy Hawkins. The Fury football team had over 120 players between the Middle School, Junior Varsity, and Varsity Football Teams. Cru Hall was selected as an All Region Football player for his efforts on both sides of the ball. Our girls golf team had two players compete in the AAA Upper state Championships while we had ten girls competing on the tennis team this season.

The Winter Sports season has seen a lot of success from our boys and girls teams in basketball as well as the wrestling program. The girls basketball team has qualified for the AAA playoffs and had a tremendous season. The girls knocked off a ranked team this year and had an 8 game win streak at one point. The boys basketball team has battled all season and finished in a three way tie for fourth place. The Wrestling team has seen tremendous growth in year two with 51 wrestlers on the team while defeating the number 20th, 17th, and 16th ranked teams in the state. They are currently ranked 14th and qualified for the AAA playoffs as the first boys team in FIHS history.

Coming up this spring we will start up our varsity teams competing in baseball, boys & girls soccer, and boys & girls track & field. We will also field junior varsity teams in softball, boys golf and boys tennis. We have had amazing support from our community in the fall and winter seasons and know that it will be continued through the spring.

After much research the Fountain Inn Fire Department can trace it roots back to 1911. Fast forward to 2023 and we have grown tremendously. Currently our department consist of 25 full-time members, we achieved the goal we set for fire safety, and are working to achieve that each year. Six firefighters obtained their EMT in 2022.

Our mission is to provide the highest level of public safety services to our community. We protect lives and property through fire suppression, emergency medical response, disaster management, fire prevention and public safety.

Our members not only protect our fire district but they also participate in teams that provide assistance in the county and state such as Greenville County Emergency Response Team and South Carolina Taskforce 1. By doing this we are able to receive additional specialty training to better protect you.

Our next big project is to become a Fire Safe SC Community. This is a designation given out by Fire Safe SC. Part of this project requires our department to accomplish 14 goals. There are many ways you can help with this. Follow Fountain Inn Fire Department on social media and the biggest way is to become a partner with our department to help promote fire safety information. This can be done in many ways.

We are affected by physical, emotional, and chemical stress every single day. Sadly, research shows that our sweet kiddos are experiencing stress earlier and more often. They are not immune to these effects. This leads to a nervous system that is stuck in sympathetic overdrive. This is the part of the nervous system that responds to survival type situations. Since we can’t be in growth and protection at the same time, the brain becomes stuck in stress mode. Imagine having a Lamborghini engine with tricycle brakes! What does this look like in real life?

Sara is pregnant with baby James. She works a stressful job and is a worrier by nature. She has terrible morning sickness and takes medication. She eats an unhealthy diet, often on the go. She hopes for a natural birth but ends up with multiple interventions. Baby James doesn’t sleep well, suffers from reflux, and struggles to nurse. As a toddler, James never seems happy. He suffers from ear infections and sick often. He frequently throws tantrums. When he enters the school years, his teachers often complain that he is disagreeable, disrupts class, and will not focus. James’ brain is stuck.


Since our nervous system is the master controller of everything in our bodies, neurologically focused chiropractors gently and specifically remove roadblocks between the brain and body. We encourage growth and development naturally. In addition to gentle and specific adjustments for each individual patient, we use scanning technology to measure and quantify how much stress is in the nervous system and its ability to adapt.


We love treating families! Even before birth, we support pregnant ma-

mas as they prepare for the big day. We are blessed to help kiddos with a number of different challenges: anxiety, ADHD, SPD, digestive troubles, chronic sickness, sleep issues. We provide a calm, supportive and loving environment for families. And, yes! We provide nervous system and wellness support for mom, dad, grandma and grandpa, too. It is our deepest desire to provide hope, answers, and help for families of the Fountain Inn and Upstate area. Dr. Scott Elliott brings 20 years of expertise in the chiropractic field to Bloomwell.

Year 3 and we’ve covered “What is Money?” and “What is Value?” And now you’re hopefully starting to see where this is going. I own a Wealth Management firm, so what exactly is it that I manage? In my research, most definitions of Wealth are something related to, “a great quantity or store of money or valuable possessions…” Hence, why we defined Money and Value in the last two articles of this publication.

The greatest economic revolution in history came from the specialized division of labor. If everyone had to purify their water, grow, preserve, and store their food, chop wood to heat their home, on and on, our standard of living would be as it was hundreds of years ago. So, if a society’s standard of living can increase, that would show that Wealth is variable, and based on that society’s ability to produce goods. In fact, I would argue that overall, Wealth is reflected in the overall standard of living, which is dependent on the capacity of production of goods and services. (Notice, it’s NOT money.)

In Adam Smith’s 1776 publication An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, another lesser-known revolution in economics was occurring in how we understand economic motivations, specifically the interdependencies of mutually beneficial, willful cooperation. In the centuries since, we’ve discovered Bastiat’s broken window solution

(opportunity cost,) Mises’ Praxeology (the study of human action,) Hayek’s study on liberty’s relationship with Wealth creation, and since 1913 sadly, Marx and Keynes’ anti-capitalistic government intervention and centralization, which consolidates and destroys Wealth. (If you’re looking for a reading list…)

If Wealth is to be defined by Money and Value, and the money supply is inflated by a central banking oligarchy, thus devaluing the money; and value is defined subjectively by utilitarian or ordinal preference, then Wealth has no useful finite definition. Surprisingly, I’m okay with this illogical definition, as it points directly at the subjectivity of value, and the calamity of the Federal Reserve’s inflation. Debt-based fiat currency is certainly not money. Value is relative, always changing, and independently judged by all economic participants uniquely. It’s why some people buy Teslas while others buy large SUVs. Both groups are “right” as they seek to fulfil their own needs and wants.

The economy is driven by production of goods and services meant for the consumption by the end user. What’s frequently ignored in national coverage of economics and finance is how production is accomplished. It’s ambiguously referred to as the “supply chain” and outside influences like weather or acts of God determine the efficiency of production. I would argue, as would Adam Smith, that the

real Wealth is in the specific factors that generate this production: land, labor, and capital.

Real estate owners who lease to residential and commercial tenants, storage space, or data and infrastructure facilities understand the productive use of land directly. Those that pay rents understand the necessity of using the space for living, running a business, or parking their RV away from the HOA bylaws. Land also describes other natural resources that exist and are scarce and limited.

Labor freely exchanges skill and time to manipulate Land for rent paid from the producer. What we’ve seen after the government’s economic shut down, has been an evaporating supply of skill and time in the labor market, which is forcing employers to pay higher wages, at a time when other input costs are escalating based on higher lending rates after the historical devaluation of the currency. Bad news, and all completely preventable with sound economic policy…

The last leg of production is capital. Capital is easiest to think about as capital goods. Goods that are used to create other goods, until the final good is produced for the consumer. Machinery, heavy equipment, cash registers, wholesale inventory, or computer chips are good examples of capital. Capital’s purpose is to create ongoing production. This is the

basis of the philosophy of capitalism. Unfortunately, the average government and media indoctrinated American’s understanding has been corrupted into believing in state-backed interventionism in our current corporatocratic, centralized system. Rest assured that capitalism will be blamed on the hardships created by our non-capitalistic system. It’s worked for over 100 years of incrementalism so far.

To summarize, if you were stranded on an island starting from scratch, you’d have to accomplish quite a lot. Forage for berries, filter water, make fire, form a blade from rock or shell, chop down some bamboo or lumber, build a shelter, plant a garden, trap animals, on and on. What if you get to the point where you have everything you need? That is Wealth. So, what does this have to do with how we manage Wealth? Well, contrary to what political economists and Wall Street CEOs will tell you, you can’t acquire physical land, commodities, scarce resources, hire labor, or acquire efficiencies of scale in production of goods and services by consuming everything you produce. (Looking at you McDonald’s, Lowe’s, Motorola, Boeing, and Home Depot…) You must have surplus to have equity. For the lay reader, that is savings. You must spend less than you earn. You must produce more than you consume.

If you spend less than you earn long enough,

you can then use those savings to build efficiencies that either increase earnings or reduce costs. In the business world, it’s buying another oven for a baker, or automation robot for your car assembly line. In the personal world, it’s investing your money to generate a return, dividend, or interest income. The goal is for your capital to generate enough interest, dividends, or return to cover your living costs, to where you don’t consume your principal. How is your capital creating ongoing production? How do you feel about ESG (climate focused investments) or big-pharma, manufacturing in China, or tobacco, guns, or marijuana?

juggled. Matthew 6:21 says “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” At Matthews Wealth Management, we help you prioritize these in line with the people, experiences, and things that matter to you.

You may have built your Wealth to $25,000 or $25,000,000, but everyone’s resources and time are scarce and equally valuable. How you deploy your land, labor, and capital and how productive it is to you and your loved ones is the only legacy that you can leave behind. Be active in managing your Wealth, you have the ability and power to have a say in who benefits, if you choose to wield it.

How you prioritize your investment into scarce resources, skill, time, technology, and efficiency is how you increase your standard of living. Whether you’re an entrepreneur or a retiree, those are the variables that must be

Fountain Inn Parks and Recreation Department’s mission statement is to create community through People, Parks, and Programs. Youth Sports remain an important part of the City’s recreation offerings featuring Spring & Fall Baseball/Softball, Flag and Tackle Football, Spring & Summer Volleyball, and Winter Basketball are offered throughout the year. The popularity of youth sports In Fountain Inn has resulted in expanded programs, as well as an Adult Co-Ed Softball league, that averages 12-15 teams each summer.

In March 2020, the City opened a multi-million sports venue, (formerly known as Woodside Park) the Emanuel Sullivan Sports Complex; featuring three baseball/softball fields, playground equipment highlighting Berliner playground ropes course with slide and rubber surfacing, a Miracle League field, a multi-purpose field, press box, restrooms and concessions area. In the summer of 2021, we are hopeful to open the City’s first ever Miracle League Baseball program. The Miracle League’s motto is “Every Child Deserves a Chance to Play Baseball. “The Miracle League removes the barriers that keep children with mental and physical disabilities off the baseball field and lets them experience the joy of America’s favorite pastime. Since the main barriers for these adults arise from the natural grass fields used in conventional leagues, Miracle League teams play on a custom-designed, rubberized turf field that accommodates wheelchairs and other assertive devices while helping to prevent injuries.”

The Parks and Recreation Department also sponsors several community events throughout the year: the annual Soap Box Derby Race held on Aunt Het, a 1 Mile Kids Fun Run + 5K Rudolph Run in December, Pied-

mont Skills/Thrive Upstate Prom, punt/pass/kick event, and a Christmas Party with Santa, City and Community Veterans Day ceremony.

The department manages nearly 50 acres of public parks, exceeding the national average for towns of this size. Eight parks offer residents a place to play, relax, and exercise. Of those (8) are Georgia Street Park, Country Chase Fitness Park, Country Gardens Greenway, Fairview Street Park, Sanctified Hill Park, PD Terry City Park, Emanuel Sullivan Sports Complex, and the Activities Center.

The Activities Center provides a multi-purpose facility for people of all ages, with a full-court gymnasium, fitness center and meeting space. Senior Activities are offered Monday – Friday 7am – 12pm and are free of charge to those aged 55 and over. Senior Adult programming includes: exercise classes, walking, health screenings and educational workshops, crafts and special interest groups. It is also one of several venues in the City that offers rental spaces. Call us at 864-862-4675 for all of your rental needs.

As Fountain Inn continues to grow, the Parks and Recreation Department will continue to look forward to meeting the needs and goals of the community through expanding and upgrading various facilities over the next couple of years. All of us at the Fountain Inn Recreation Department want you to know that we are “here to love, here to serve”. God Bless!
