Performing Arts For The Holidays is an annual event sponsored by South Sumter Resource Center and Sumter County Community Development Corporation. PAFTH’s inaugural presentation was 2005 at the South Sumter Resource Center in an effort to showcase the talented young people that live in Sumter and surrounding area. Most of these immensely talented young people seldom have the opportunity to display their talent. PAFTH was created as an avenue for these talented youth to expose their offerings to the world.

Members of Sumter County Council and I are indeed pleased to present this report to you with the desire that it will provide a birds eye view of how your County Government is organized, the services it renders, and some of the plans we have for the future. Local governments are faced with numerous challenges and mandates that they must confront which impact citizens now and in the years ahead. As a leader in local initiatives for many years, Sumter County Government is now, and will continue to be, prepared to meet the tasks before it in an ingenious and gallant approach.
It’s nice to live in the South. You cannot beat the 70’s and 80’s temperatures in May. Once you endure the pollen season, what a great place to spend time outdoors.
Your County Government is hard at work. The newest community center, Salterstown, will have its Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting on Monday, May 13, 2013, at 3:30 p.m. Located on Highway 401 just beyond Highway 378, this new community center will serve the citizens on the east side of Sumter for many years to come. The new Sheriff’s Office Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting will be Friday, May 24, 2013, at 2:00 p.m. The transition to this new location on Highway 15 North has been successful on many levels.
Funded by a three-way partnership of Sumter County Government, the City of Sumter and the Sumter Smarter Growth Initiative, the Development Board’s mission is to increase per capita income by creating jobs and luring capital investment to our community.
