2015 Bicentennial Meetings

3rd Tuesday of the month at Town Hall immediately following the Village of South Charleston Commission Meeting.

In conjunction with the South Charleston Bicentennial Celebration, the South Charleston United Methodist Church is in the process of starting to compile a registry of veterans from the South Charleston area. We want to get information on veterans who have served our country as far back as colonial days to present. If you are a veteran and would like to be included in this registry or you know of someone who should be included, please send the information the church email address at or mail the information to the church at Box G. We would like the following info: name of veteran, branch of service, conflict served during or the years of service or theatre of service, and any other pertinent info that you would like included in the registry. Thank you for the help with this project.
