Camp Emmanuel celebrates 10 years

Camp Emmanuel, at Emmanuel Methodist Church in Antioch, recently celebrated its 20th year with speakers, field trips and lots of fun.

Chamber holds business roundtable

On June 28, the chamber held a business roundtable with our members to specifically talk about state regulations that are hindering businesses in Kershaw County. This roundtable was prompted by Gov.
