The Marion Chamber of Commerce is in its 6th year of distributing "Francis Marion and the Legend of the Swamp Fox" for all third graders of Marion County. To date the Chamber has distributed over 2000 books.
This project has had a two-fold impact - impressing the importance of reading and giving the young people a sense of just how important Marion county was in the history of our nation.
On March 2, 2017 with the assistance of Darrell Jameson, Chamber President, Deborah Martin, Chamber Vice-President, Brian Wallace, Director, Deborah Wimberly, Director, and Cindy Rogers, Executive Vice-President, the Chamber distributed the books in the public schools. We appreciate their commitment to the students in Marion County!!
