I would like to personally thank all those local residents who attended the public meetings we have had on Monday nights at the American Legion Hut in St. Stephen for the past few weeks.
I really appreciate the interest, ideas and input from the local residents. For those who haven’t heard, we finally agreed on a name, Small Town Restorations, Inc.
We also elected officers and they are as follows: President – Barbara J. Mixon, Vice President – Wilber Robinson, Secretary – Leasha Mays, Assistant Secretary – Gloria Devine, Treasurer – Roderick Sumpter, and Reporter – Tammy O’Neal.
The purpose of our organization is to beautify, restore and revitalize the Town of St. Stephen, since it seems to have deteriorated over the years. We hope to be doing some painting, landscaping, remodeling, and restoring of some of the existing buildings in town in hopes of making the town more appealing to perspective buyers or tenants.
We would love to see the town grow and prosper with new businesses. We have several ideas for improvements and will need funds to complete these projects. We will be having a community yard sale in September to help raise funds for these projects and will be having more fundraisers in the near future.
If anyone would like to make any donations to our cause, checks or money orders can be made out to Small Town Restorations Inc. and mailed to PO Box 249, St. Stephen, SC 29479, or can be hand delivered to us on Monday nights at the American Legion Hut at 180 Ravenell Drive in St. Stephen..
Thank you all and we look forward to seeing you at our meetings.
Barbara J. Mixon
President, Small Town Restoration Inc.
