Chapin Town Hall

Mayor's Message


On Sunday, Dec.9, we held our Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony at Chapin Town Hall. I was very pleased with the turn out and had such a great time. It was a wonderful opportunity to share in the spirit of the holidays. My favorite part was getting to read the Polar Express to all the children. Seeing their expressions and watching them ring their bells was an unforgettable experience. (If you don’t know the significance of the bell, you will have to read the story).
On Tuesday, I participated in the Midlands Mayors Forum. This meeting is a collaboration of all Mayors in Richland and Lexington County. The forum focused on relationship building and communication. The meeting included an update by the South Carolina Department of Transportation on their plans for the highway improvement project.
After attending municipal court on Tuesday evening, I was invited to attend the American Legion Christmas Party. It was such an enjoyable evening. It was a beautiful event and an honor to be included. The American Legion Post 193 has always been strong community partners with the Town. As a member of the organization and a veteran, I appreciate all that they do for the community. It was a great experience to join in the fellowship of their Christmas celebration.
At Town Hall, we are continuing to work on solutions to issues as they arise and develop long term strategic plans that will benefit the community for years to come. The most recent example being our Town Christmas Lights. We appreciate our citizen’s involvement and willingness to help. To learn more about opportunities to be involved, please contact our Public Affairs office at  
Wishing you all a safe and enjoyable weekend.
Warmest Regards
Mayor David Knight

Memorial Garden's Special Meaning

Many new citizens to our area don't realize that the Town Hall grounds features a memorial garden and that those little brick pavers hold special meaning to our community.

The memorial garden was created by the In Loving Memory Support Group to honor children that have passed. The group's founders Steve and Maggie Siegfried started the In Loving Memory Support Group in 2007 for parents that have lost a child.

Many of the group's members have children that are buried in other states and had no place to go on birthdays, death days and other days of significance. This special garden offers our community a quiet, beautiful place to remember their loved ones.

As one mother put it, “when I go to the cemetery it’s so sad, but when I come to the garden there is a peace about it so I can reflect and meditate about my son.” 
Any parent that has lost a child is welcome to attend the group's meetings.  They meet the first Saturday of the month from 10-11 at the Chapin United Methodist Church.  If you would like more information or a brochure, please call either Maggie or Steve at 345-7656.
