Legend of the Swamp Fox, funded by $3,500 from MHCF

MARION, S.C. -- The Marion Chamber of Commerce continues its Book Project this year which is to give all Marion County third grade students a copy of Francis Marion and the Legend of the Swamp Fox.
Chamber of Commerce Director Cindy B. Rogers said the organization is proud of the project as it expands student’s knowledge of the history of General Francis Marion.
“We had the pleasure of having the books delivered to the Chamber office by the author, Kate Salley Palmer and her husband Jim Palmer,” she said. “This year the Chamber received a mini-grant in the amount of $3500 from the Marion County Healthcare Foundation to assist with the purchase of over 450 books.”
Marion County Healthcare Foundation Director Mary Dunbar was on hand for last week’s presentation. Rogers said an insert will be placed in each book denoting the sponsors of this project.
The books will be distributed to Marion County third graders today.
