The RSM High Beta Club and NEHS members created over 75 care packages for an Aiken nursing home. On induction day, they group gathered during ILT and created an assembly line to fill the bags with personal hygiene items and valentines. Several members later loaded the love-filled bags into NEHS President Symia Wilson’s car. Symia’s CNA class delivered the packages to the nursing home where they will be distributed to the residents.

Traveling Exhibit


  The South Carolina Historical Society Museum will present South Carolina’s 350th Year Celebration of European Settlement in 2020.
  The Saluda County Historical Society has been granted the exhibit for the month of March 2020. We will be a part of a statewide celebration of the European settlement at Charles Towne Landing in 1670. The exhibit focuses on the stories of those who came to South Carolina, their reasons for leaving their homes, and how Europeans, Native Americans, and Africans interacted upon arrival. The 350th Traveling Trunk is designed to supplement your school age and adult programs. All included materials align with the South Carolina state academic standards.
  The Traveling Exhibit will be set up in the Saluda Theater. The exhibit in the Museum will emphasize the early history of our part of the state.  Information on the Cherokee Path, Indian artifacts, and the signing of the Saluda Old Town Treaty in 1755 will be part of the exhibit. 
  Horse drawn farm equipment, a spinning wheel, a corn sheller, and a small grist mill are among items too large for our normal displays that will be set up in the theater.
  Make plans to come see the exhibits. School groups will need to setup a tour time. We want to have an adequate number of volunteers to make your visit enjoyable.
