McLeod Health celebrating 110 years with historical marker, choral symphony McLeod Health will conclude a year-long celebration of 110 years of providing care to the region on Thursday, Nov. 17, with two free public events in downtown Florence: a Historical Marker Dedication Ceremony at the Florence County Museum, and a Commissioned Choral Symphony presented at the Francis Marion Performing Arts Center. At 5:30 p.m., a marker from the South Carolina Department of Archives and History will be unveiled on the 100 Block of West Cheves Street, adjacent to the Florence County Museum, at the site of the original McLeod Infirmary established by Dr. F.H. McLeod in 1906. The two-sided marker will bear the inscription: McLeod Medical Center The McLeod Infirmary was located here in 1906, inspired by the need to provide access to local medical and surgical care for the people of the region. Frank Hilton McLeod was born in Richmond County, N.C. in 1868 and graduated from the University of Tennessee Medical School. In 1891, he moved to Florence and chartered the Florence Infirmary. By the 1920s it was the third largest hospital in the state. In 1930, with the assistance of the Duke Endow-

MCLEOD INFIRMARY ON WEST CHEVES STREET IN 1940 ment, McLeod Infirmary became a non-profit institution. A new building opened in 1935 and expanded capacity to 190 beds. Renamed

McLeod Memorial Hospital in 1971, expansion continued when 14 blocks of Urban Renewal land were acquired just east of this

location. The McLeod Regional Medical Center opened in 1979 SEE

CSX Quonset Hut coming down Florence City Manager Drew Griffin announced last Wednesday that the Quonset hut owned by CSX Railroad at 157 East Pine Street will be demolished. The hut, near the intersection of Barringer and Pine, was heavily damaged by a fire on Oct. 26, 2014. Since that time, the building was abandoned and has been an eyesore for the community, he said. The dilapidated metal structure has a negative effect on the neighborhood, commented Councilwoman Pat Gibson-Hye Moore, who has been pushing to get it torn down. “I feel today is the beginning of a resurgence of East Florence,” she told the media at a press conference held in front of the hut on Nov. 2.

Beck Center demolition ceremony The Florence School District One Board of Trustees and Supt. Dr. Randy Bridges, invite the greater Florence community to the demolition of the RN Beck Center Ceremony which will be held on Thursday, Nov. 10, at 10 a.m., 1001 West Sumter Street. The RN Beck Center is being torn down to make way for a new child development facility in Florence One.

MCLEOD HEALTH FROM PAGE 1A with over 300 beds and improved acute care facilities. This marker is the first to be placed in the core of the revitalization of downtown Florence. At 7:30 p.m., the Florence Symphony Orchestra, The Masterworks Choir, and soloists will present “It Is Well - A Healing Suite,” a commissioned choral symphony at the Francis Marion Performing Arts Center. The four movement work is composed by Dr. Brandon D. Goff, Professor of Music at Francis Marion University, and uses familiar hymns with texts centered on healing and comfort: There Is a Balm in Gilead, Abide With Me, Stand By Me, and It Is Well with My Soul. The symphony will be conducted by Dr. Terry Roberts and features soloists Roger Kirby, Gracie Myers, and Rebecca Thompson, and speaker David Hamilton. The auditorium will open at 7 p.m. for general admission seating. These events are gifts to the community from McLeod Health and have no admission charge.

Deaths THIS 1906 POSTCARD DEPICTS THE FLORENCE INFIRMARY, COURTESY OF MCLEOD HEALTH

The inspiration for McLeod Health While observing McLeod Health’s 110 year anniversary, McLeod Health shares the tragic event that inspired Dr. F. H. McLeod’s vision for the Florence Infirmary – the hospital that would eventually grow into the regional health care system known as McLeod Health. The Legacy Begins It was not yet spring, but the brisk winds were signaling a change of season from the bitter cold. The young mother welcomed the hint of warmer months to come and opened the window of the second story apartment in the downtown hotel. The breezes still were chilly but it seemed to cleanse the air and atmosphere within the rooms, Mrs. Barringer thought. Her small son Rufus, a fair, curly-haired, bright-eyed little boy of three, echoed her delight in the fresh air with chattering and enthusiasm. His voice seemed to compete with the sounds of business and bustling that could be heard all the way up from the street. Then, what was never supposed to happen, possibly every mother’s nightmare, became a reality for this young woman. In a matter of seconds, Mrs. Barringer watched as her toddler ran to the open window to sneak a peak at the activity below. But before she could react, she watched as her child

lost his balance and fell from the window to the pavement more than 20 feet below. Recognizing the seriousness of the accident, someone who had witnessed his fall from below quickly sought emergency care for Rufus, whose whimpering was becoming lower and lower and whose skull was badly crushed by the blow of hitting the street. But where would the child be taken for care and whom should be called to help? There was no 911 or emergency line to access. In fact, there were many folks without phone service in the community or even motor vehicles available for transporting the injured. Rufus Barringer’s accident occurred in downtown Florence on March 8, 1899, more than 117 years ago. Central Hotel, located on Evans Street at the turn of the century, stood only yards away from the current facility of McLeod Regional Medical Center. According to a historical sketch about McLeod, “The History of the Development of a Medical Center” by Dr. Larry E. Nelson, related newspaper articles about the tragic incident on microfilm and family recollections, Rufus Barringer was the beloved son of J.L. and M.L. Barringer of Florence, born on December 1, 1895.

Immediately after his plunge to the street, a passerby picked up the boy and carried him to “Palace Drug Store, owned by Dr. Furman P. Covington and Dr. Frank Hilton McLeod, Physicians and Surgeons,” proclaimed the signage. “Dr. Lawrence Y. King, a well-known physician in the city, happened to be in the store at the time and quickly attended to the boy. Seriously hurt, the lad cried a little, but soon lapsed into unconsciousness. Among the other physicians hurriedly summoned was Dr. F.H. McLeod. Since he was fond of children, the situation must have been troubling to him,” according to Dr. Nelson’s text. Perhaps he knew Rufus because the stricken boy’s father had a place of business in the same building as Dr. McLeod’s medical office, at 209 Evans Street, located on the same end and side of the block that the historic Old Florence Post Office stands on today. Feverishly, Dr. McLeod and his colleagues “devoted their energies to saving the little life.” However, examination revealed Rufus had a severely fractured skull and the prognosis was poor. His short life ended three days after the incident on March 11. “The tragedy of Rufus Barringer affords a rare glimpse into the early practice of Dr. Frank Hilton McLeod, who became the foremost physician of the Pee Dee region of South Carolina. As a young man, he obtained a medical education at schools in Georgia and Ten-

nessee. He tried two different locations before establishing his medical practice in Florence in 1891. He became active in matters of professional medicine and he acquired an enviable reputation for his surgical skills. Founding the Florence Infirmary in 1906 and conducting its affairs were Dr. McLeod’s most important contributions. In the early years of the hospital’s development, he determined to make it an institution serving the medical needs of the Florence community and its environs, but also the eastern section of South Carolina. Through medical talent, entrepreneurial skill and hard work, his dream was a functioning reality by 1917,” stated Dr. Nelson’s account. It was the tragic fall in 1899 of a three-year-old boy from a second story apartment that inspired Dr. F.H. McLeod’s vision of a hospital for Florence and the region. The founders of McLeod understood the need to provide access to treatment and advanced care and specialized surgeries. They set the precedent for superlative hospital practices and expertise. Today, McLeod Health carries on that tradition with highly experienced professionals, the widest spectrum of health services available in the region, extraordinary outcomes and patient testimonials, cost efficient-care, expansion and growth to meet the needs of patients from the midlands to the coast.

QUONSET FROM PAGE 1A “This will build momentum and hope for East Florence.” Moore went on the say it took a team effort working together to get this done. Pursuing options to allow them to demolish and remove the building, the City began working with CSX Railroad in June of 2015 and on Jan. 28 entered an agreement allowing them to move forward with demolition. Prior to the building’s removal, the city must complete abatement of lead and asbestos contaminates which are present in the building. The City has contracted with Eastern Environmental Incorporated and the abatement process should begin in the next few weeks, Griffin said. The City is currently preparing the bid for demolition work so that a contractor can be selected following the environmental assessment and the city can proceed with the removal of this building. He estimates the project will be completed in about four months. The City looks forward to the completion of this project as it compliments downtown revitalization efforts by improving aesthetics to a heavily used corridor while also accomplishing city goals to remove symbols that foster a geographic and social division in the community, Griffin noted.

Florence, SC

Hartsville to celebrate Veterans Day HARTSVILLE – A Community Veterans Day Celebration will be held on Nov. 11 at 11 a.m. at the Veterans Memorial in Burry Park. The celebration is co-spon-

sored by the Pilot Club of Hartsville and the City of Hartsville. Sheriff-Elect Tony Chavis will be the guest speaker. Choral presentations will be by the Hartsville High School Chorus, The Hartsville Middle School Magnet Chorus, and the Coker College Men’s Vocal Ensemble. Also, a special flag ceremony by the Hartville High School JROTC will be included.

Veteran’s Day Ceremony includes four added monuments The annual Florence Veterans Day Ceremony on Nov. 11 at 11 a.m. at the Florence Veterans Park will be on par with previous outstanding events and it may be the most significant since the opening of the Veterans Park in 2008, says Col. Barry Wingard, Ret. The speaker is BG Viet Luong, Chief of Staff, US Army Central Command (ARCENT). BG Luong is the first native of Vietnam to become a general in the US military. Prior to his current assignment, he was serving in Afghanistan.

Three new monuments and relocation of another are on the agenda. • Wall of Honor – 36 names of Pee Dee area veterans will be added to our Wall of Honor. This will bring the total number recognized to 684. • US Army Monument – This will complete monuments to each service, including the Merchant Marine. The monument is spectacular. Over nine feet tall, four and a half feet wide, and one and a half feet thick, it will feature hand-etched drawings depicting soldiers during WWI, WWII, and Korea on one side, and Vietnam, Desert Storm, as well as current wars on terrorism on the other side. This new monument was designed by Bran Oswalt of Brown Memorials whose monument to the US Air Force, placed last Veterans Day, was selected as the top monument in a public park in North America for 2015. • Alone with Memories – Internationally acclaimed sculpture Alex Palkovich has created an amazing tribute to those who have lost loved ones. The larger than life sculpture depicts a woman, sitting on the ground, holding

a tri-folded US Flag. Immediately, one recognizes the tragedy that the woman is experiencing because of the loss of a son, father, brother, or husband. • World War I – This monument was originally dedicated in 1928 and is being donated by the American Legion Post 1 and relocated to the Veterans Park. This monument’s original bronze plaque lists the names of 67 people from Florence killed in WWI. The plaque lists the names as “Officers,” “Enlisted,” and “Colored.” After contentious debate, a compromise was reached to add a second plaque with the names listed alphabetically on a separate, adjacent marker, Wingard said. In addition to the speaker, entertainment in the form of live music will be provided by the youth choir from All Saints Episcopal Day School. The SC Army National Guard’s 133rd Military Police Company and the US Army Reserve’s 413th Chemical Company (Hazardous Response) will have military equipment and vehicles on display with soldiers present to answer questions about the equipment and vehicles.

GOD’S WORD Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. Proverbs 3:5

VIEWPOINT

An issue we should no longer ignore By Lee H. Hamilton Americans understand that our nation’s strength and security depend on its fiscal health. This may not be foremost on their minds right now, but rarely do I address a public meeting at which no one expresses concern about the federal debt and our general fiscal condition. We face an ongoing, long-term mismatch between our spending and revenues, and year after year, administration after administration, the debt grows larger. A lot of ordinary people worry about this. They believe that a healthy fiscal situation is essential to our success as a nation. And they want policies in place that allow us to address the debt without interfering with the economic well-being of the country. The presidential candidates didn’t give serious attention to deficit reduction, and neither, for the most part, are members of Congress. This may be because the federal deficit – that is, the yearly difference between revenues and expenditures – has shrunk. But that’s only temporary, a respite from the deficit highs we incurred during the recession. With a rising proportion of older people and spending on entitlement programs such as Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare growing dramatically, we’re not far away from facing dangerous levels of debt. A fix is becoming increasingly urgent, and the longer we delay the more difficult it will be. So what do we do? The solutions flow along three broad lines: spending cuts, tax increases, and economic growth. There are advocates for each, but it is hard to imagine that salvation lies in one approach alone. Proposals to slash the deficit by cutting spending fall far short of what is needed. Indeed, our experience in the recent past offers no hope that politicians will find agreement on significant spending cuts. A similar issue confronts those who believe that we just need to unleash the forces of the market to propel economic growth – to make progress, we would need to see a growth rate far above anything we have a reasonable chance to reach and sustain. And although there may be politicians who quietly wish we could tax our way out of the deficit crisis, there is no political appetite for it. In short, we need them all: a combination of tax increases, spending cuts in both defense and nondefense areas, and economic growth that will stabilize debt at a manageable level. Each is difficult. Capitol Hill’s preferred tactic when it comes to taxes is to cut them, not increase them. The tax code is larded with tax “expenditures” – that is, the mess of preferences, loopholes, and tax breaks aimed at solving social problems or buttressing one industry or another. These are politically attractive because they don’t create additional spending, but the budgetary impact is the same: they reduce revenues and expand the deficit. In that atmosphere, actual tax increases – the kind that would help us get our debt under control – can seem remote. On the spending side, the rhetoric coming from Washington – and from the campaign trail – raises unrealistic expectations about the savings that can be achieved through budget cuts. Not only do most proposals fall far short of what is needed, but the demands we face on entitlement programs, the country’s evident need for public investment – especially in infrastructure – and higher interest rates on the debt are all powerful forces pushing in the opposite direction. But really, what choice do we have? The threepronged solution I’ve outlined – a combination of spending restraint, tax increases, and economic growth – is privately acknowledged by almost everyone I’ve encountered, whatever their public position, to be the only realistic approach. Yes, this kind of deal will have to be phased in over years, giving people and businesses time to adjust. But the urgency of the question is pressing and will only get greater as deficits go up. The longer we delay, the more painful the adjustment will be. Our system has met greater challenges in the past. We’ve been through a civil war, two world wars, waves of immigration unseen by any other nation, and we’ve managed them all. It took strong political leadership, bipartisanship, negotiation, and compromise to thread our way through. That’s what getting our debt under control will require. We’d better get started.

He was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives for 34 years.

LIVING ON PURPOSE

Seeing the world from a positive perspective By Dr. William Holland For those of us that are a little older, we can look back and see how the world has changed. Some say the human race is born with a corrupt nature and others are convinced there is an evil enemy that works hard to influence us over to the dark-side and both of these views may be true, but whatever the case, there is much anxiety today about what is happening and where we are headed. Change is a powerful word that can be good or bad and is closely associated with the decisionmaking process within our mind. We hear the commercial, “change your apartment – change the world” which seems to make a mockery of freewill but instead of trying to be funny, we should be serious about how changing the way we think will change who we are. In the midst of worry and concern for this country and our family’s future, there are several bright lights of good news. Like you, I gather information from all types of media sources but I grow weary with constantly hearing how bad everything is. Allow me to ask; do we really need to be bombarded with negativity and be persuaded that the world is falling apart at the seams? It would be refreshing to be reassured that all is not lost and how we can make as much difference in the world as we choose. Perspective is

another key word to consider because it allows us to discern and think carefully about what has been said. When someone relays a story, we should remember they are relaying a view of what they personally believe. For example, when we hear that no one can be trusted and how society is evolving into a mass of mindless zombies, we should realize this is a “glass half empty” view of the world. Actually, there are many kindhearted and loving individuals that are demonstrating incredible acts of generosity. Each day we rise and maneuver our way through the daily grind while walking the tight rope of staying informed and trying to keep our sanity at the same time. However, let us be reminded that if we are going to allow ourselves to be an information sponge, we should be careful how we interpret what we absorb. I am not saying our world does not have problems, but we should also not burn down the forest as a way to get rid of poison ivy. All people are not corrupt, all of the next generation is not ruined and we should not just give up and go sit on top of a moun-

tain! No matter what our government decides, we still have a spiritual mission as our hands fit the hammer and shovel just as it always did. There is a big difference between spectators that do a lot of talking and participators that spend their time and energy trying to make a positive difference. Our last word is discernment. There are so many different ideas, but as Christians we should be sensitive enough to know what is right and wrong. Let us stop and consider the danger of being brainwashed with negativity. God is not confused, deceptive, a manipulator or a liar. He never fails, He is perfect absolute truth, He has all the answers and the closer we are to Him the more we will all see eye to eye. I recently heard a story about 8-year-old Taylor Henry in Bossier Louisiana. She was deeply moved by the devastation from the recent flooding in her state and after hearing a message in church about having mercy for others, she was inspired to help. Little Taylor came up with the idea of sewing beautiful tissue holders and leading a fundraiser that has now generated thousands

of dollars. Maybe instead of pointing out all the people that do not care, we could start identifying and appreciating those who do. There have always been hateful, selfish and despicable people but be encouraged; the darkness of sin can never conquer the eternal light of sincere love and compassion.

‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ opens at FLT on Friday The Florence Little Theatre presents a dramatization of Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mockingbird.” This timeless tale of the innocence of childhood and the shock of growing up will run for eight performances from Nov. 11 through Nov. 19 on the Little Theatre stage at 417 South Dargan Street. The drama provides a poignant look at justice and the human spirit, as told through the eyes of a young girl learning the mysteries and realities of adulthood. Told through the perspective of eight-year old Scout, “To Kill a Mockingbird” is set in a small Southern town during the Depression. She and her brother Jem are being raised by their widower father Atticus and a strongminded housekeeper, Calpurnia. Wide-eyed Scout is fascinated with the people of her small town, but from the start, there’s a rumble of thunder just under the calm surface of the life here. Some members of the community have a special feeling for Scout’s father and she doesn’t know why. Others are inexplicably hostile and Scout doesn’t understand this either. Atticus, a lawyer, explains that he’s defending a young man wrongfully accused of a grave crime. Since this is causing such an upset, Scout wants to know why he’s doing it. “Because if I didn’t,” her father replies, “I

MAD DOG ON THE RUN – Standing in front on stage, from left, Donna McDaniel, Carsyn Ridgeway, Sam Densmore, Ben Daniel and Lloyd Walker. couldn’t hold my head up.” Atticus’ reply to Scout underscores the central theme of the play: the ability to put oneself in another’s shoes in an effort to recognize truth. “To Kill a Mockingbird” is the most prominent novel by Harper Lee. Born in 1926 in Alabama, Lee’s childhood bears many similarities to Scout, the central character of Mockingbird, although it is not autobiographical. Lee drew on her own experience as a young girl in the South to create a rich atmosphere filled with the distinct

voices of the people in the town of Maycomb. An intensely private and reserved woman, Lee once stated “The novel is a love story pure and simple. My love of the South, a father’s love for his children and the love they give in return.” This play is considered a Southern Gothic with intense subject matter involving loss of innocence and racial inequity, including racial epithets. Florence Little Theatre would like to express that we are producing this literary classic not only because it is a classic,

but also as a way to spread the need for tolerance and the stand against prejudice. The cast features Ben Daniel as Atticus, Carsyn Ridgeway as Scout, Sam Densmore as Jem and Laurin Manning as narrator Jean Louise Finch. Cliff Jones as Boo Radley; Rick Favaloro as Nathan Radley; Caleb Howell as Dill; Lloyd Walker as Heck Tate; Ken Kammer as Judge Taylor and Tracy Hamner as Mr. Gilmer. Also, Donna McDaniel as Calpurnia; Maudie Atkinson as Rhonda Cusaac; Jessica Morris

School principal enjoying first role in a play BY BRENDA HARRISON Editor of The News Journal Florence, S.C. When Tracy Hamner steps on the FLT stage Friday night, he not only proves something to his students, but he fulfils a lifelong desire. Hamner is portraying prosecuting attorney Mr. Gilmer in the Florence Little Theatre’s upcoming drama, “To Kill a Mockingbird.” As principal of St. Anthony Catholic School, Hamner encourages the students to go after their dreams. “I told them if you want to do something, you have to take a chance and it doesn’t matter if you fail,” he said. So, when he saw the notice of the second night of auditions for “To Kill a Mockingbird,” he felt compelled to follow his own advice and take a chance. “I have never done anything with the theater before,” Hamner said. adding that he auditioned to demonstrate to his students the importance of taking chances.” He was amazed and excited

Finch in the courtroom scene. As a former English teacher,

Hamner says he knew the book well and feels that made it a little easier to memorize his lines. Although he had never appeared in a play, his high school sweetheart and later wife, A’Leigh, had performed in high school productions. “She was very confident that I could do this,” he said. She understood the time involved and was very supportive,” he said. Tracy and his family, which includes three young children, moved here from their hometown, Richmond, Va., in July of 2015. Having never been in a play before, Hamner said he did not realize how much work is involved in a production. He learned that “every step is planned and people play off each other.” Hamner complimented the play’s director, Stephen Mapes, saying he has been patient with him and very helpful. This production includes many different people from various walks in life, the newcomer noted, adding that it has been a good for him per-

sonally and a great way to meet new people. “Coming from another state, I didn’t realize just how many people knew about the Florence Little Theatre,” he commented. “Even people out of town have heard about the theatre.” “I hope people will come to see the play,” Hamner continued. “It still resonates on so many levels. “There are so many good characters and a very talented cast who bring each of them out,” he added. Since most of his students can’t come to the play, he brought around 100 of them for a tour of the theatre, taking them backstage and on the stage where he will be performing. Now, he has something to mark off his bucket list, Tracy noted. “To Kill a Mockingbird,” by southern author Harper Lee, opens at the Florence Little Theatre on Friday, Nov. 11, and runs through Saturday, Nov. 19, which the exception of Monday, Nov. 14, when the theatre is closed.

Scout interviews WWII veterans Andrew Raines, a life scout in Boy Scout Troop 477, has been working on his Eagle Scout project since January. His project involved interviewing and recording the stories of six WWII veterans, who are members of Central United Methodist Church. Several of these veterans had not talked about their service in decades. He also interviewed Jim Peterson who told the story of his uncle John; and Korean war Navy veteran Frank Greene. Andrew recorded and transcribed the interviews for a digital and written history for Central’s church library which is under the direction of librarian Mary Davidson. The veterans are: Colonel Jim Peterson, retired Army JAG officer, tells the story of his Uncle John Peterson through letters written home during his time in the army as he fought through the early WWII battles in northern Africa into Italy and on to the Battle of the Bulge. Ninety-one year-old B52 tail gunner Frank Stokes flew 51 missions out of Italy bombing German oil fields and other strategic targets. Frank tells the story of a plane he was scheduled to fly on that at the very last minute he was reassigned to another crew. The plane he was originally scheduled for blew up on take off. Another story Frank tells is of when his plane was hit by flack and filled with over 200 holes, then caught on fire with part of the crew baling out. The casualty percentage of B52 crew members was high and Mr. Stokes has considered his life being spared as a blessing from God to serve others and lead the best life he can. Ninety-three year old P51

Museum hosts Family Day WWII VETERANS AND BOY SCOUT – Mr. Frank Stokes, Mr. Hugh Merriman, Andrew Raines and Mr. Paul Rung pilot Bob Garey landed on the beach of Iowa Jima just two days after the Marines landed. He stayed in a fox hole for over a month during the battle to take the island and get the runway rebuilt for their P51 fighter planes. Mr. Garey escorted B29 bombers flying missions to bomb Japan. He tells the story of life in the fox hole, being one of only two planes to return from a mission that took them into the eye of a hurricane and being part of a relief flight and touring Tokyo shortly after the Japanese surrender. Mr. Garey passed away on Sept. 9. He was a member of St. John’s Church but was included as part of this Central Methodist church project due to his son Billy’s family being Central members. Ninety-four year old Army Private Paul Rung, from his wheelchair, tells the story of

storming the beach at Normandy on D-Day. He tells of the two days on the beach before reaching the top of the hill as seeming to last for a month. His amazing story continues as he was captured by the Germans while fighting on the front lines trying to help a wounded comrade. He tells of the year he spent as a POW before the US forces liberated him. Ninety-four year old Hugh Merriman, a railroad employee before WWII started, served in the Army’s transportation division. After having his enlistment deferred on several occasions due to the critical role the railroads played in the war effort here in the states, he joined near the end of the war and was sent to Europe for six months. Ninety-two year-old Second Lieutenant/Captain

Sanders Bridges was finishing his first semester at The Citadel when WWII started and the Army came calling. Mr. Bridges was wounded four times as he fought the Germans on the front lines. Mr. Bridges later served as an Army JAG officer in the Korean war. Ninety-five year old S/Sgt. Bill Bauknight was a U.S. Army Air Corp radioman first working on a ground crew and later on a B-26 bomber in Europe at the end of the war. Eighty six-year-old Frank Greene is a Navy veteran from the Korean war that served on the U.S.S. Orca and later as a corpsman at Oak Knoll Naval hospital in Oakland California. “I have been very grateful and humbled to be able to speak with these men in these interviews. I have been able to learn much more about World War II and the sacrifices that our veterans made for us have become much more personal to me,“ said Andrew Raines.

American Legion recognizes Boys/Girls State participants The Fred H. Sexton American Legion Post 1 held their annual Boys/Girls state banquet on Oct. 25 after being delayed by Hurricane Matthew. The banquet is held to celebrate the accomplishments of the 44 young men and women from local high schools who participated in the program. The boys and girls participate for a weeklong learning experience. The boys go to Anderson University and the girls go to Presbyterian College in Clinton. During the program, they learn about government and how it functions. Assigned to fictitious cities, they then run for political offices and govern their cities. They learn how to legislate, speak in public, team build and negotiation skills. The students unanimously praised the program and how it changed their lives and their perspective of their role in the future. Post 1’s Boys State Program chairman,

Judge Gene Morehead, presented the boys with a certificate acknowledging their participation. They each gave a brief speech about their experience and all want to go back. Some will go back as counselors in future programs. One of the highlights of the evening was when Girls State member Claire Stuckey from Johnsonville High School gave a moving speech on what the program meant to her. Auxiliary President Vickie Gimla congratulated Claire and her family on her outstanding accomplishment. Four ladies participated in the program. Vicki hopes to have more next year. Post Commander Don Handley observed some excellent public speakers and invited them to participate in the Legion’s Oratorical Competition in January. College scholarships are available to participants.

Meaningful arts encounters for millennials offered The Florence Regional Arts Alliances introduces a new program to the community. The program is for 20 to early 30 year olds seeking to engage within the Florence art community through an affordable platform. The boundaries and description of this group defined often as millennial, generation Y, Generation Me or Echo Boomers include those born in the mid 1980s and later. The hope of this program is to instill a diverse age group within the audience members of established arts organizations, but to also make introductions to new and developing arts events, artists or arts businesses. “It is imperative that this new generation feels a voice, presence and role in our local arts community in order to grow and sustain the hard work and investment of older generations before them,” states Arts Alliance president Michele Pridgen. A small pilot program was conducted last year consisting of 25 members. After evaluating ways in which to improve, the Arts Alliance is making the program public in 2016-17 with 40 spots available. This curated arts calendar will include, but is not limited to, the following events: Saturday 11/19: The Grass Roots – FMU PAC

All 4 Autism presents Bandwagon All 4 Autism will present Bandwagon, an afternoon full of music and entertainment at Boxwood Plantation, on Nov. 12 to benefit the mission of bringing the first resource center to the Pee Dee for the autism community. “We want Bandwagon to be an all-day celebration of our autism community. Money raised from this event will fund our Autism Resource Center of the Pee Dee, which we hope to open by spring 2017. The center will provide resources and support for those with autism and their families,” said Jessica Brown, executive director for All 4 Autism. Live music will be performed by The Easy Kind, Terence Lonon and The Untouchables, Tastes Like Chicken, and others. There will be a college game day viewing area for those wanting to keep up with the scores. And there’ll be food trucks and drink vendors, as well as a children’s area with inflatables and games.Those attending Bandwagon will use the Triple R Farms entrance on Hoffmeyer Road. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door for the noon to 6 p.m. event. The grassroots organization All 4 Autism was created by two mothers wanting better resources and support in the area. First, it was a volunteer-based organization, and after several years, a director was hired. All 4 Autism’s mission is “to increase support, resources and opportunities for those of all ages with autism spectrum disorder by partnering with families, schools and communities throughout the Pee Dee.”

Each event attended will be complimented by a special addition to the program so that participants not only attend the event but also learn more about items such as the venue, organization, production or people

The Florence Regional Arts Alliance Board of Directors in keeping with its mission hopes this program will increase arts appreciation and support within a new generation of patrons.
