Envision Williamston, volunteers clean up town – Working on Williamston


Envision Williamston and the Town of Williamston sponsored Working On Williamston (WOW) Town Clean Up Day on April 23.
“The weather was perfect, the sun was shining, and excitement was in the air,” said Envision Williamston Executive Director Roberta Hamby. “Saturday was a fun packed day here in Williamston.”
Hamby said Hillcrest Baptist Church made much needed repairs to the Mineral Spring Park Amphitheater. Narrow Way Fellowship worked on the cleaning up the small stage area in the park. Palmetto High Schools ROTC and FFA leaders and students were cleaning up around town and spreading mulch. Lander University Alumni also came to help. “Williamston was the original hometown of Lander University, the home of the Williamston Female College, which was moved to Greenwood and renamed Lander College.”
“We also had community members, town workers, members of Williamston Town Council and Envision Williamston Board Members all on hand doing their part,” Hamby said.
Donna Cabiness with Community First Bank in Williamston provided pizza for the volunteers.
“Standing back and watching all the happenings and how everyone came out and gave up their Saturday morning to help make their town the best that it can be, made my heart absolutely swell with Pride,” Hamby said. “I can honestly say that I have never been more proud to say that I am a part of this great community. I want to personally thank everyone who came out on Saturday and helped us make this a great event and a great day in Williamston. You all make it a joy for me to lead Envision Williamston.”
The Williamston Recreation Department also held their annual Opening Day Parade last Saturday.
