Cheraw Gearing Up For Summer Entertainment Series

The Town of Cheraw will launch the 2014 edition of Third Thursdays on May 15 with The Legacy Motown Review. This will be the first of four summer concerts, for ages 21 and up. Lounge chairs and coolers are welcomed. This popular summer entertainment series was created last summer as a means to promote Cheraw as a vibrant place to live, work, and visit, and it offers both locals and visitors a fun, relaxing evening. All Third Thursdays events will be held at the Cheraw Community Center, 200 Powe Street from 7:00-9:00 PM at a cost of $5 per person. Future performers will be The Magnificents on June 19, The Band of Oz on July 17, and The Embers with Craig Woolard on August 21.

April is Fair Housing Month

During the month of April, we come together as a community and a nation to celebrate the anniversary of the passing of the Fair Housing Act and recommit to that goal which inspired us in the aftermath of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's assassination in 1968: to eliminate housing discrimination and create equal opportunity in every community. Fundamentally, fair housing means that every person can live free. This means that our communities are open and welcoming, free from housing discrimination and hostility. But this also means that each one of us, regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, familial status, and disability, has access to neighborhoods of opportunity, where our children can attend quality schools, our environment allows us to be healthy, and economic opportunities and self sufficiency can grow. Our commitment to fair housing is a living commitment, one that reflects the needs of America today and prepares us for a future of true integration.
