Slater Hall turns 80!
For 80 years, Slater Hall has served as the center of the Slater-Marietta community, and now we celebrate those 80 years. To begin the celebrations we have the SLATER SHAG (April 26th @ 5pm) and 2014 Strawberry Festival and Country Fair (May 3rd starting at 10am) in a couple of weeks. We hope to see you there!
Slater Hall Citizens' Committee Remembers Founding Member
The Slater Hall Citizens' Committee is very sad to report the passing of one of our founding members, Jimi Turner. Jimi worked tirelessly for the Slater-Marietta community as an employee of the Recreation District and most notably as Captain Corn, the beloved figure who so generously gave clothing and toys each Christmas to thousands of children in northern Greenville County over the years. We will miss him very much but are better people to have had him as an example of love and generosity.
