Month of the military Child

The Month of the Military Child

April is the Month of the Military Child, which recognizes the sacrifices and resilience of children in military families. Yemassee has a long and proud history of being the gateway to Parris Island and a proud veteran community.  Military children face unique challenges such as frequent moves, long periods of separation from parents, and the stress of having a parent deployed in a dangerous location. This month we show appreciation for the strength and bravery of military children and support them in any way possible. It also serves as a reminder of the sacrifices made by military families in service to their country.  - Matt Garnes, Town Administrator


On April 11, 1968, President Lyndon Johnson signed the

Civil Rights Act of 1968, which contains Title VIII also known as the

Fair Housing Act. For SC resources and information, click here.

Minutes and agenda

Ironworks has wasted no time after getting approval.  They have already started site preparation to bring light manufacturing and 65 jobs to Yemassee. 

The Planning Commission gave the go-ahead for the first phase of the Ironline Metals Project. They're going to build a 100,000 square feet factory that makes steel studs for residential and commercial buildings. This first part is going to cost more than $6.5 million. Now, they can apply for a permit to start building.
