Support Treats on the Streets and Help Fund the Fun!

Casey Event, News

Giving away candy costs merchants
more money every year.

Treats On The Streets has become a Hartsville tradition. Every year, more children and more families enjoy this free, safe, downtown event. Last year we had several thousand people enjoying the trick-or-treating at stores and businesses along East & West Carolina Avenue, 5th Street and East College Avenue. This year, we are trying to soften the expense to merchants by ordering candy in advance and in bulk. We are trying to raise $500.

Would you be willing to contribute $25 to help us reach our goal?

Or donate any amount you choose:

We still appreciate checks, too!

If you’d like, make checks payable to:

Hartsville Celebrates Birthday of New GSSM Student

Casey News

There’s always a party in your Downtown!

Surprise! Hartsville’s Mayor, Mel Pennington, stopped by the Governor’s School for Science and Mathematics this week to celebrate the 16th birthday of one of Hartsville’s newest residents with balloons and cupcakes!

GSSM has long been an integral part of the Downtown Hartsville community. We alway look forward to the return of Governor’s School students to our downtown, where they bring so much vibrancy to the fun atmosphere we share.


I am the mom of the girl that was on the receiving end of this. I am amazed that the Mayor’s office was so willing to help with my request to help make my daughter’s first birthday so far away from home a happy one. Bless you for your kindness! [Facebook] Tami Charlton Van Vleet

Miss Hartsville Visits the Hartsville Farmers Market

Casey News

The Miss America Organization is the nation’s leading advocate for women’s education and the largest provider of scholarship assistance to young women in the country, awarding millions of dollars each year. This past February, Catherine Wong was crowned Miss Hartsville 2017 where she was given a $500 academic scholarship and the opportunity to represent Hartsville at the 81st Annual Miss South Carolina Pageant. Miss America contestants contribute thousands of hours of community service annually and have raised over $15 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals since 2007. CMN Hospitals are the official philanthropy of the Miss America Organization and contestants spend countless hours during their reign volunteering and raising money for this charity. So far this year, Catherine has raised $262.00 and is ambitious to raise even more!

The greatest part of being Miss Hartsville is spending time with the Hartsville community and raising awareness about her Miss America Platform: Bridging the Education Gap Within SC Public Schools. Catherine believes being Miss Hartsville, Miss South Carolina, or Miss America are more than just a title. This organization is a movement of empowering young women all over the state and country to achieve their dreams, make the world a better place, and do good by providing quality scholarship assistance and honoring their commitment to helping others.

Please join Miss Hartsville 2017 one last time before she leaves for the Miss South Carolina Competition, at the Hartsville Famers Market this Saturday from 9AM to 1PM as she raises money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals! She will be signing autographs, taking pictures, and collecting donations all day. Can’t come but still want to donate? Here’s your solution! Visit the link right here: Missamericaforkids.org/Donate/CatWong.

Come on by this Saturday and help make some miracles happen!
