Fire fest will honor 90th anniversary of Cleveland School fire

The 18th Annual Camden/Kershaw County Fire Fest will take place Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Rhame Arena (517 Bull St.) in Camden. A part of this year's event will mark the 90th anniversary of the historic Cleveland School Fire -- a fire at a Camden-area school in 1923 that killed 77 people. Because of the Cleveland School Fire, the most deadly in state history, many laws, building codes, regulations, and ordinances have been passed across the nation to prevent this type of tragedy from ever happening again.

The KershawHealth difference

I have had the opportunity to experience surgical procedures at two of our area's most prominent hospitals -- Providence and KershawHealth. My first surgery was at Providence, the hospital noted for performing surgical procedures, and my doctor was located in the city of Columbia. My experience at Providence was exceptionally good. The hospital was first class with excellent facilities, professional personnel and an attitude of the patient being the No. 1 priority. Everything went according to plan.
