New group gets support for lake efforts

A new group known as Connect Lake Greenwood will be getting some help from Greenwood County with their first event Lights on the Lake to be held on July 4 on Lake Greenwood.

The group made a presentation to Greenwood County Council at Tuesday’s administration and finance committee meeting. The group has direct connections to all chambers of commerce which have an interest in Lake Greenwood, including Greenwood, Laurens, Newberry and Ninety Six. The group’s aim is to unify the many things going on at Lake Greenwood and provide a one-stop-shop for those seeking information on what is going on around the lake.

David Thompkins, chair-elect of the Greenwood Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, was joined by Greenwood Chamber CEO Angelle LaBorde and Connect Lake Greenwood representative Jimmy Peden.

“We felt like the lake had a lot of stuff going on, but the left hand didn’t talk to the right hand,” Peden said. “We’re kind of the center hub for information. We plan on doing newsletters providing information on what’s going on at the lake and also what’s going on off the lake.”

Peden said the group was formed just over a month ago and had only begun publicizing what they are doing for about two weeks. The first event the group hopes to host is Lights on the Lake, a fireworks display held at Camp Fellowship on Lake Greenwood. Peden said there would be room for about 150 cars at the location and a large number of boats to attend on the lake. Peden said pre-registration was preferred, but the group would not turn anyone away and did have a plan in case more than 150 cars showed up for the event. The event is scheduled for July 4 with fireworks starting around 9:15 p.m. You can pre-register for the event by visiting www.ConnectLakeGreenwood.com.

Peden asked council to support the event with a $1,000 donation. That support was approved unanimously during council’s regular meeting, which immediately followed the administration and finance committee meeting.
