Mayor Summey Issues 12th, Say Something Nice Day Proclamation

Last night, May 11, 2017, at a meeting of the City of North Charleston City Council Mayor Keith issued a proclamation for Say Something Nice Day on June 1. Councilman Brown presented it to me. It was the 12th. time Mayor Summey has done this. This is where it all began. Neither Mayor or I knew at the time how far our efforts might go. The one thing we do know is that it is more needed now than ever.

I am grateful to Mayor Summey for his leadership in this area and more important I am grateful for the example he sets in the realm of civil discourse. The rest of the country has had an opportunity to look at him up close and they have seen a man who practices what he preaches. I hope everyone will celebrate Say Something Nice Day on June first. It doesn’t hurt one bit and it offers a world of improved relationships.

FBC – Woodruff, SC Will Celebrate June 6

Carol and I had a wonderful trip to Woodruff, SC where I spoke to the Golden Age Club of First Baptist Church. These wonderful Christian people greeted us with great hospitality. We reconnected with many old friends and made new ones. My topic dealt with the observance of Say Something Nice Sunday on June 6. My talk included some examples of encouragement I had received in Woodruff growing up there. I also stressed the importance of our communication reflecting our belief in Jesus and that our speech should honor Him. I am happy to say that First Baptist Church of Woodruff will join this year’s observance on June 6. If you are in the Woodruff area, you would find a great warm welcome with these folks.
