Dear Friends,

The snow is coming.

We need your help getting these two important messages below out into the community. Please forward, retweet, or share on your Facebook pages:

Snowmageddon

I just received the latest brief from Chief Burr via the National Weather Service in Wilmington, NC:

Winter storm warning remains in effect from 5:00 am Tuesday until 6:00 pm Wednesday.

Snow accumulations of 3 to 6 inches are expected.

Winds...North 10 TO 20 mph with gusts up to 30 MPH.

We're taking a team out during the worst of the weather to check on the shut-in, the elderly with relatives who are living out of town, and those who lose power.

We've done this successfully in the past and need your help again spreading the word.

If you are living out of town and have a relative here that you can't get in touch with, or that needs to be checked on, please contact me directly:

Text / Cell: (843) 858-0356

Facebook: Facebook.com/mel.pennington

We will have additional shifts doubled during the worst of the weather. Our Firemen, Police, County EMS, Dispatchers, Water & Grounds Crews -- they'll all be out working to keep the city running.

Be sure to thank them when you see them!

Homeless & Cold

Rev. J. D. Blue has opened Second Missionary Baptist Church, 212 West Washington Street for the homeless and the cold. The number of the church is (843) 332-5001.

Rev. Blue needs our help.

If you would like to make a donation, please contact him directly. If you can't reach him, feel free to call my cell phone as well (843) 858-0356.

They could use the money, they could also use food. He runs a soup kitchen that gets very little recognition in our community, but is one of the most crucial operations in our city.

Hartsville shares a strong tradition of taking care of our people. We're going to work hard to keep that tradition alive and keep our city safe.

We're here if you need help,

Mel

Carl M. (Mel) Pennington, IV

Mayor, City of Hartsville, SC
