Festival Donates Money to Centennial Celebrationtownclock

The Town of Pageland is 100 years old, and the Pageland Garden Club wanted to mark the special occasion by erecting a four-sided clock in the downtown business district. Just in time for the Centennial Celebration kick-off, the clock was installed at the corner of Maple and McGregor streets. The Garden Club worked diligently to raise funds for the clock through private donations and from their annual Taste of Pageland event. Their fundraising campaign concluded when the Pageland Watermelon Festival contributed the final third of the cost of the new clock.

As a non profit event, the festival helps to fund various projects throughout the year for the betterment of Pageland. Past projects have included scholarships for local high school seniors, a fountain in the town green space, and decorative banners with brackets for the new downtown revitalization project. The festival has also given donations to local athletic programs, charities, and non-profit organizations.
