Members of Lugoff Fire-Rescue (LF-R) members and the Lugoff Fire District Board of Commissioners recognized Lugoff citizen Sidney Butler at the board’s monthly meeting June 23. Chief Dennis Ray said Butler was recognized and presented a plaque for his service to the Lugoff community and the fire department by providing support and input for community and county growth projects.

Ray said Butler provides continuous input for ongoing economic and infrastructure growth efforts in the Lugoff community and Kershaw County from his dedicated attendance to various civic and government meetings each month.

“It’s a special recognition for a citizen of Lugoff for all the time and effort he puts in on economic development and other things in the community. He’s done that for years and he’s dedicated to come to the office and have a good community conversation,” Ray said. “He really goes above and beyond by attending meetings and staying informed and we wanted to thank him for what he does. He is in tune with all that’s going on in Lugoff and Kershaw County.”

Butler resides in Lugoff and can be seen walking in Lugoff and Camden as he attends various meetings and stays current on local issues in the county. Ray said Butler has developed an extensive list of local, state and federal official contacts that he frequently communicates with to stay abreast of political and economic issues.

“There is rarely a week that goes by that Sidney does not come by my office and provide his input to me on projects currently happening and upcoming that involve the Lugoff community. Sidney is very knowledgeable in many areas of county operations and projects from input he receives continuously from his various meeting attendance,” Ray said. “I appreciate Sidney for his care and concern to see Lugoff and Kershaw County continue to grow and succeed while making sure public safety is always at the forefront of conversations.”
