It looks like one of those RTA vans you’ve seen around the county, but once you step inside you’ll think you’re in a doctor’s office.

“It” is the new Wellness Initiative Network (WIN) Healthcare Van. WIN is a cooperative effort between Kershaw County Medical Center, the Kershaw County Community Medical Clinic and the Kershaw County United Way.

Purchased with WIN grant funds from The Duke Endowment, the van will be dedicated into service during a special ceremony Tuesday at the new Elgin Community Center.

Imagining yourself on horseback isn’t hard here in Kershaw County. After all, this is the home of the Carolina Cup. But have you ever imagined yourself on horseback under the ancient pyramids of Egypt and the great Sphinx?

Most people can only dream of such a getaway, but one current Camden resident and one former Camdenite recently did just that a few weeks ago.

Jean Dunlap and Bill Denton, acquaintances through the Camden Hunt Club, recently spent several days riding on horseback through northern Egypt during a week-long trip to the country.

Set on FAC grounds, the festival will add a children’s area and feature the fare of several local restaurants, including the Everyday Gourmet, The Greenleaf Inn restaurant, La Fiesta, Lucy’s, MAD's Restaurant and Catering and the Mulberry Market Bake Shop.
