Marion Chamber Swampfox Book Project
The Marion Chamber of Commerce continued its Book Project this year which is to give all Marion County 3rd grade students a copy of “Francis Marion and the Legend of the Swamp Fox”. The Chamber is proud of this project as it expands our student’s knowledge of the history of General Francis Marion.
This year the Chamber received a mini-grant in the amount of $1500 from the Marion County Healthcare Foundation to assist with the purchase of over 400 books. Pete Mazzaroni, Marion County Healthcare Foundation Executive Director posed with Chamber President, Deborah Martin in the presentation of the check. The Chamber would like to express our thanks to the Healthcare Foundation as well as the other sponsors of our Book Project. An insert was placed in each book denoting the sponsors of this project.
The books were distributed to the 3rd graders on March 6, 2018.
