Still Time to Give 

Chapin Town Hall is a collection site for two worthy charities this holiday season. We are collecting toys for the Justin Pepper Foundation’s 11th Annual Toy Drive through December 15th. We are also accepting canned goods, non-perishable food and cleaning supplies for Chapin’s We Care Center.  Help keep the spirit of giving alive and drop-off an item if you’re visiting Town Hall in the coming weeks.

The Chapin Police will be escorting the American Legion Riders up to Newberry Boys Farm to deliver the toys collected last Saturday at Boland’s Ace Hardware. According to Matt, they had quite a haul, with more than 200 toys collected. To be part of the procession, meet at Boland’s this Saturday, Dec. 9, before 1 pm. You can still drop off toy donations at Boland’s through Dec. 23.

The Bounty of the Season

We had a wonderful turnout at out Sunday for the annual Christmas tree lighting on Sunday, and lots of people enjoyed the hot chocolate and cookies provided by Publix, even if it was 70 degrees outside! The children enjoyed story time with Mayor Skip Wilson and a visit from Santa, while the adults cherished the angelic voices of our local children. Thanks so much to Natalie McCoy and Andrea McFadden with Chapin United Methodist Church for preparing a delightful program of carols for our listening enjoyment! And thank you to the folks who brought toys for Justin Pepper and food for We Care.

While many of us are enjoying holiday treats this time of year, some of us like the support of Weight Watchers to help us stay on track with our health and wellness goals. The Town is a host site for a midday weekly Weight Watchers meeting. Peter Versoi leads the meeting held on Mondays at noon in our Community Room at Town Hall. He is starting the fourth 10-week session this month and is welcoming new members. They will be taking off the Mondays of December 25 and January 1, for obvious reasons.  

Ending the Year

The final Town Council will be held on Tuesday, December 19 at 6:00 pm. There will be a public hearing prior to the meeting, beginning at 5:30 pm to review the proposed 2018 municipal budget. We will recognize our outgoing council members and mayor as well as Chapin resident Mike Gray, who is getting ready to retire after a distinguished career with the United Way of the Midlands. We hope you will join us for this final meeting of the year.
Chapin Town Hall will be closed December 25 and 26 for the Christmas holiday, and again on Monday, January 1 for New Year’s holiday.
