This Weekend in Blythewood
July 31st, August 1st & 2nd

       Thanks to the great crowd who came to the Blythewood Rodeo!















  

Congratulations to the band members  from Kelly Mill Middle School for scoring big!  And to Richard Black for an invitation to the National Youth Leadership Forum: Advanced Medicine & Health Care at Hohns Hopkinss University.  Will he be a new doctor in Blythewood one day? Also congrats to the Cobblestone Junior Tennis Team!  Keep going!  


Now you Know...The answer to last week's question:  We have a "Self-Guided Walking Tour" guide of the historic places to see in Blythewood at Town Hall.  The Boney/Hykil house built in 1859 is now the Allstate Insurance building. It has served as a family home, a printing shop for the local poet J. Gordon Coogler, as well as a gift shop. Our new assistant superintendent from District 2, Keith Price, was the first to answer the question and is the recipient of a little treat from Town Hall.

Did you Know....Another historic spot in Blythewood is 110 McNulty Street.This house was built ca. 1905.  In 1911 Miss Frances A. Powell moved to Blythewood and boarded there, and later bought the house.  What was Miss Powell's occupation at that time?  What other businesses where in that historic house?

    Email your answer to: kellym@townofblythewoodsc.gov and get a little treat for reading the newsletter and being so smart!
