These nieces of Rebecca Eleazer of St. Stephen, during the past three years have written, directed, and produced four short films. They recently caught the attention of Stephanie Fredric, Executive Producer of FGW Productions, in Los Angeles, who invited them to cover some of their highest profile events to date.
We are truly excited for these your ladies and their proud families. We continue to hear of the wonderful things being accomplished by the gifted individuals of our Berkeley County communities.
It is our pleasure to congratulate these young ladies on their accomplishments and wish them continued success.
Happy Birthday to Marlena Blanding, Therese Barnes, Deloris Jefferson, Joletta Barnes, Andrew Kelly, Ejurie Brown, Naveria Blanding and all other February celebrants.
Expressions of sympathy are being sent to the family of Bishop Alphonza Gadsden and his family on the passing of a brother. We will continue to keep them in our prayers.
