That Kershaw County is growing is both a given and a blessing. Kershaw County citizens are well known for their welcoming, friendly attitude to newcomers; we know we live in a wonderful place and are pleased others recognize that and want to be part of it.
Camden and Kershaw County have long been known for all things equestrian. From the hunt to the Cup, from trail riding to barrel racing, this place is horse-crazy -- has been for a long time -- and we believe that's a good thing.
Part of what makes the difference between a good community and a great one is the willingness of those who live there to step up and contribute their time, talent and resources to make that community a better place to live. People do this in a variety of ways and means. Readers will see two examples in today's C-I.
We would like to offer our hearty congratulations to Amy Kinard, who was recently named executive director of the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce. While she has been serving as interim director since August 2016, we are very glad she will continue in the position permanently.
In today's C-I we conclude our annual Year In Review series and we hope you have enjoyed looking back at 2016. To say 2016 was an interesting year is something of an understatement – a lot happened, both locally and nationally.
Whether you say "Merry Christmas", "Happy Hannukah," "Blessed Kwanzaa", or "Festivus for the Rest of Us," we are not offended. We know what you're trying to say; we understand the meaning; we feel the good cheer; and we would like to give a hearty, "Right back atcha, friends!"
