Volunteers from the First Baptist Church of Wagener made a big difference in Wagener's Green Space on Main Street this week as a part of their service project, "Serve Wagener." We'd like to thank everyone who came out to help or supported the project in other ways. They did in a couple hours what would have taken us 1 or 2 days. We all deeply appreciate the help and a job well done but above all, thank you for caring.
From the Aiken Standard: The historic Kitchings Mill Library moved to its permanent home in Wagener on Thursday following a two-year effort by Aiken County officials and residents to preserve the structure. Residents stopped their cars as police escorts drove by, and some even took pictures of the large J.E. Oswalt and Sons truck carrying the library through the heart of Wagener and down Park Street.
Mr. Charles Rushton, on behalf of the Aiken Electric Cooperative, presented Charlene Washington and Tina Salley, on behalf of the town of Wagener, yesterday with two checks that amounted to over fifteen hundred dollars. Mayor Mike Miller commented "Aiken Electric has always been very generous in assisting Wagener in times of need and always there to help. Although we did not ask them for this monetary assistance, their folks realize the need and responded. We always know they are only a phone call away. We deeply appreciate their dependable service and interest in Wagener and our extended community." $1,000 will be applied towards this past 2014 Wagons to Wagener event and $560 was donated to the Kitchings Mill Library project. The historic Kitchings Mill Library is being placed beside the Fire Department July 10th, 2014 .
