Bethune residents and visitors have a new picnic shelter to use and enjoy at Copeland Park, thanks in large part to an $8,500 Parks and Recreational Development (PARD) grant, a program which provides funds to build or improve parks and related facilities in South Carolina. State Sen. Vincent Sheheen and State Rep. Grady Brown visited Copeland Park on Tuesday to present the check and help cut a grand opening ribbon for the shelter. Kershaw County Council Chairman Julian Burns and Councilman Tom Gardner, who represents the Bethune area, also attended along with Bethune Mayor Charles McCoy and town councilmen Don Witham and John Fulmer.
