I was very fortunate to be able to attend the Third Army/US Army Central Strategic Relocation Expo held at Fort McPherson, Georgia this week. The Sumter County Library joined many other County and City agencies in representing the community to both the military and civilian workers who will be relocating to Sumter. In my opinion the Expo was a resounding success. I know that a great deal of effort went into the groundwork for this event by representatives from SHAW, Sumter, and Fort McPherson. They deserve credit for an outstanding job. The people of Fort McPherson went out of their way to make us visitors from Sumter welcome. I was glad to be able to represent our community and especially the Library. Hundreds of people came through the Expo. Everyone seemed to enjoy the event and I believe they gained a very good impression of what the City and County of Sumter has to offer. Those who stopped at the Library table were especially interested in the programs and services we offer for children. We will certainly look forward to welcoming them to Sumter as graciously as they welcomed us this week.
