GREENWOOD, SC – Though the doors have been open since May, the Greenwood County Veteran’s Center held an official ribbon cutting Monday afternoon at their new facility located at the old Greenwood County library.

Many distinguished guests were in attendance in addition to many others running for office in this year’s election. Those in attendance included Senator Floyd Nicholson, Senator Billy O’Dell, Representative Anne Parks, Representative Mike Pitts, Representative Gene Pinson, County Council Chairman Robbie Templeton, County Councilwoman Edith Childs, County Councilman Chuck Moates, County Councilman Patrick Moody, County Councilman Gonza Bryant, County Councilman Bob Jennings, County Manager Jim Kier, Greenwood Mayor Welborn Adams, City Councilman Kenn Wiltshire, City Councilman Johnny Williams, Ninety Six Mayor Arvest Turner, Greenwood County Sheriff Tony Davis, 8th Circuit Solicitor Jerry Peace, Greenwood County Coroner candidates Marcia Kelley-Clark and Sonny Cox, and State House of Representatives candidate Shannon Riley.

Veteran’s Affairs Officer Carey Bolt recognized guests and commended those that made the new center possible. An Eagle carving was donated by Kathy Wilson n honor of her late husband, Woody Wilson. Anne Eller of Sharp Facets also presented a painting entitled “The Guardian.”

The new center will be available for use by veterans and active duty military personnel for any number of different activities. It will also house the Hall of Heroes, a memorial to those from Greenwood County who have served.

I would like to thank Greenwood and all involved for honoring our veterans and soldiers. What a wonderful way to show Greenwood and neighboring communities that we honor our men and women in uniform. Thank you!
A honored veterans wife!

It sure would have been refreshing to see a veteran or even better, a disabled veteran in the picture cutting the opening ribbon. It seems like the recognition in most events goes to the office holders.
