The NEXT General Membership Meeting will be held at Swan Lake Presbyterian Church at 912 Haynsworth Street in Sumter, SC 29150. Our May 2018 featured speaker is Bobby Thigpen. He was born in Sumter and grew up in Paxville. He went to Edmund’s High for a year and a half, graduated from Manning High in 1952.
His topic will be, ” Heroics at Manning the Day Before Lee Surrendered”.
This promises to be an absolutely fascinating presentation! — is a great speaker. The meeting is open to the public with no admission cost.
We would encourage anyone that is not joined the Sumter County Genealogical Society to do so! We are acquiring new materials daily to add to our already vast collection. The cost is minimal and your visits are unlimited during our open hours. You will also get a monthly copy of “The Black River Watchman”, our publication sent out September thru May each year.
Please come join us; we promise you won’t regret it!
