On Tuesday our community pulled together for Midlands Gives, a 24 hour fundraising effort for participating nonprofit organizations. The Chapin community experienced an outpouring of support for all of our local charities. I was asked to participate in the Midlands Gives Local Mayors Putting Challenge on behalf of Chapin nonprofit, We Care. I was fortunate enough to be the first one to sink my putt earning $250 towards the charity.
Following the day's activities for Midlands Gives we had a Town Council Meeting with a full agenda and a packed house. Along with new and old business for the Town, we had Patrick and Jenny Bowers give a moving presentation on the future vision for the Screaming Eagles. Their story is very inspiring and we hope to hear more in the upcoming months about the creation of fields for athletic competition and an inclusive day facility in the years to come.
During the Town Council Meeting we included two proclamations recognizing important dates for the Town.
