Planning for our future and giving a voice to Merriwether are goals of the Merriwether Community Coalition.  This is an open invitation to join in this process.

Our next meeting will be Tuesday, August 28th at 6:30 pm at the Merriwether Elementary School – cafeteria. 

The Merriwether Community Coalition will host a panel discussion –  “Merriwether Community: Planning For Our Future.”  The purpose of the panel discussion is to inform and encourage citizens to work with our elected officials and appointees in the process of planning our future.

Dr. David Hughes, Professor and program leader for Clemson Extension Community Development Activities, will be making a short presentation at the meeting discussing ways he and his department, utilizing faculty and students could be of assistance in creating a strategic plan tailored specifically to the Merriwether community.  At our initial community wide meeting Dr. Hughes gave an example of the strategic plan they helped prepare for Fairplay, SC.  This will be important information for our community to consider.
