The Sumter County Cultural Commission and the Sumter YWCA are cooperating on an art installation project to raise awareness about domestic violence and sexual abuse.
Carmela Bryan, the commission’s executive director, said she’s looking forward to the show’s opening at 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 9 at Patriot Hall. There will be guest speakers and attendees can expect to receive plenty of information about these important issues.
Well I did it again, I talked about the nice weather with 800 temperatures in February and now it is mid- March with 400 and 500 temperatures. The Azalea blooms may not survive the next few weeks. We even had ‘snow’ one morning! We did not receive much accumulation but it sure was nice to see the big flakes falling.
Funded by a three-way partnership of Sumter County Government, the City of Sumter and the Sumter Smarter Growth Initiative, the Development Board’s mission is to increase per capita income by creating jobs and luring capital investment to our community.
