The October meeting of The Dillon Historic School Foundation (DHSF) was called to order by Chairperson Gerald Berry at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 2nd, at the Dillon County Chamber of Commerce Conference Room.
After an invocation by Terry Morris, Mary Skipper Miller presented minutes of the September meeting which were accepted with one correction. John Wilson provided the treasurer’s report. Chairman Gerald Berry reviewed a letter from the United States Treasury regarding the organization’s non-profit status and provided copies to both the secretary and the treasurer.
The agenda then addressed progress reports on projects and special committee assignments presented by Mary Miller, Betty Barclay, and Jimmy Humphrey.
Gerald Berry presented information recently published in “The Florence Morning News” about the restorations of Red Doe and Back Swamp and discussed the similarity of those projects to the DHSF’s goals for the J. V. Martin Auditorium.
Mary Miller reported on her presentation to the Dillon County Historical Society which covered a history of the Dillon Historic School Foundation (previously known as The Dillon Historic School Advocacy).
