Letter to the Editor

ECDA thanks Edgefield and Edgefield County councils for support

web posted March 16, 2010
Dear Editor:
On behalf of the Edgefield Community Development Association we would like to thank the Edgefield Town Council as well as the Edgefield County Council for their generous financial support in helping sponsor our year long community events planned in celebration of 225 years of historic Edgefield and Edgefield County.

In March 1785, the South Carolina General Assembly passed the statue dividing the Old Ninety Six District into a number of counties, one of which was Edgefield County.  For those that are history buffs, the Town of Johnston was formed in 1870 and the Town of Trenton was formed in the 1880’s according to the Tomkins Library – a wonderful Edgefield County resource full of genealogical history.

On Saturday, March 20th the Edgefield’s Birthday Bash will be held at the Edgefield Gym located at 380 Church Street to kickoff our year long celebration.  Tickets are still available for $17.50 each in advance or $20.00 at the door.  Doors open at 7pm with live music by the Key West Band starting at 8pm.  There will be heavy hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar.  All ages are welcome; however we will be checking ID’s for those that will be drinking alcoholic beverages.  This will be a fun-filled evening and also a great way to enjoy the first day of spring after our long winter!

Our next event celebrating our 225 years will be a family fun day on the Edgefield Square on Saturday, May 22nd. Please watch the paper for further details on this event. 

2010 is going to be a great year full of exciting and fun events celebrating our wonderful 225 years of history and the Edgefield Community Development Association would like to thank all the citizens that support us as an organization as well as our individual businesses. For further information, please see our website at www.VisitEdgefield.com
