Where is the year going?


Where is the year going?

It seems just like yesterday that we were overwhelmed by the disastrous “Millennium Flood”; working around the clock to provide shelter, food, and other essentials for victims throughout Sumter County.  Today we are still working through road issues and material losses throughout our County.  I extend thanks to everyone for their patience and understanding as we continue to move through this very slow process of rebuilding.
