August 2021 Newsletter

Class is back in session! August marks the end of summer vacation. The first day of school for Colleton, Beaufort, Jasper, and Hampton County schools is August 16. LCOG wishes you and your family a happy school year! We encourage you to keep your children and loved ones safe by getting vaccinated and wearing masks. Do not forget that SC's tax-free weekend is August 6 through August 8. Eligible items can be purchased online and in-store without paying the state's 6% sales tax and any applicable local taxes.

In this edition of our newsletter, you will read about the progress of the MIRR study on Parris Island and learn about COVID scams targeting senior citizens. You will also find out about the improvements coming to US 278 and an upcoming job fair in the Hampton County area.
