February 8th-10th Weekend

You may have heard by now that our friend and Town of Blythewood Municipal Clerk, Stacey Keasler, experienced a house fire late yesterday afternoon.
This Weekend in Blythewood
February 8th, 9th and 10th

Only six more weeks of winter, so the groundhog says but  we'll believe it when we see it.  But no matter what the weather.... things are starting to get active in Blythewood.

Someone needs your help.
You may have heard by now that our friend and Town of Blythewood Municipal Clerk, Stacey Keasler, experienced a house fire late yesterday afternoon.  Her family's home was completely destroyed along with all of their belongings. 
Stacey, her dad, and son are all safe and sound but they are in need of some help and support.
There are a couple of ways that you can help Stacey and her family.
Checking accounts have been set up at First Citizens Bank and SCBT.    You can send a check made out to:
Stacey M. Keasler OR Keasler/Motley House Fund
C/O First Citizens Bank
P.O. Box 748
Blythewood, SC  29016
Motley Family Fund
2010 Clemson Road
Columbia, SC  29229

Another way to lend a hand is to send a Target or Walmart eGift Card directly to Stacey's email address.  Simply go to or and click on Gift Cards. Gift Cards will help the family purchase food, clothes and household items that they need.    The email address to send eGift Cards to is:

If you have something to drop off for Stacey's Family, you may do so at Town Hall (171 Langford Rd), Blown Away Hair Salon (IGA Shopping Center) or Broom Heating & Air (1232 Blythewood Rd).

Thank you in advance for your thoughtfulness and generosity.  Please keep Stacey and her family in your  prayers.
