Town Hall hosted a beautiful ceremony on January 13 honoring James Mills and William “Bill” Zeigler. We had a packed house as community members, politicians, former students, public service personnel and previous inductees of the Hall of Fame joined in recognizing these upstanding citizens. Thank you to Billy Griffin, Nicholle Burroughs, the Chapin Women’s Club and the Chapin Garden Club for their role in putting this event together.
Since the beginning of the year we have welcomed two new businesses to the Chapin community; Chadwick’s Barbershop and Lake Murray Drug Company. We are proud to add these two establishments to our business community and we wish them many years of success.
A final thought for our community: I have received concerns from community members regarding emergency service response time. Lexington County has implemented a 911 Emergency Phone System, in order to provide faster and more effective police, fire and emergency services. The rapid response time available with this computer-based system is highly dependent on the posting of a correct road address on all principal structures located within Lexington County. I strongly urge you adhere to the state law that requires all addresses to be posted on their structures and to ensure that it is clearly visible from the road. This will help emergency response personnel locate your business or residence quickly in an emergency situation. If you have any questions about this policy or its requirements you can contact my office.
Warmest RegardsMayor David Knight
