We need some college FLAGS!

We are collecting college flags! If you have one that you’d like to donate or one to spare, we’d be MOST appreciative! Just bring to the front office! Thank you for your support of our bees… we’re growing the SC Graduate right here at Lonnie B! 🙂 We love HBCUs, out of state colleges, private colleges, public colleges! We love them all. We want our bees to know what opportunities await them after the SC Graduate!



Foster Grandparents!

This is such a wonderful experience for us at Lonnie B. Nelson…. check out our very own Grandma on the front page with one of our bees!

We’d love to have MORE Grandmas!
Check out Grandma Lillie working hard this summer: 

Foster Grandparents spend summer at Camp Sunshine

This summer, seven Foster Grandparents are volunteering at Camp Sunshine, an eight-week day camp for individuals with physical, intellectual or developmental disabilities sponsored by the Richland County Recreation Commission.
The camp is an opportunity for children with a diverse set of special needs to have fun with structured activities. The Foster Grandparents nurture the campers by holding their hands and helping keep them calm and safe.  They additionally serve as door monitors and assist with feeding the campers.
We are grateful to Foster Grandparents Emma Addison, Lillie Anderson, Mattie Bookhart, Patricia Grant, Dorothy Johnson, Thelma Miller and Inez Speaks, who are giving of their hearts and time this summer to support and encourage disabled children.
