A legacy of service
Elgin residents, VIPs turn out for Potter park dedication
Potter Park - Thomas McElveen
State Sen. Thomas McElveen tells the audience at Saturday mornings dedication of a picnic shelter at Potter Community Park that the one word he comes up with when he thinks of Elgin is community because you dont wait around for somebody to come in here and do something for you. If you all want something done, you do it yourselves. - photo by Martin L. Cahn
A check for $10,000 from First Citizens Bank and a speech by S.C. Speaker of the House Bobby Harrell highlighted a dedication ceremony for the next step in Potter Community Park’s evolution in Elgin on Saturday morning. The ceremony -- technically a ribbon cutting for the park’s newly constructed picnic shelter -- turned into both a celebration of the park as a whole and of the town’s spirit of public service. The park is named for the E.C. and Gladys Potter family, several of whose members live next to the park.
