May was “Love Your Pet” month at the South Congaree-Pine Ridge Branch Library. The children enjoyed a visit from Chase the dog, and four large boxes full of supplies and monetary donations were collected on behalf of Pets Inc. As always, the staff from Pets Inc. was very appreciative of this community’s efforts.
Irmo Branch volunteer, Pete Stewart, was recognized by Beverly Brandt, the Director of the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) of the Midlands. She presented him with a certificate of appreciation and thanks for his continued volunteer efforts at the Irmo Branch Library. Pete also loves to read to first graders at Dutch Fork Elementary and second graders at Harbison West Elementary. He serves as a mentor to a young fifth grader at Harbison West Elementary and tutors students at Dutch Fork Elementary upon the teachers’ requests.
