GOING ON NOW: SUPREME COURT GROUNDS BEAUTIFICATION PROJECT

The Supreme Court Beautification Project is a state-wide effort of the county bars and private attorneys of South Carolina. It consists of placing a wall along Sumter Street, providing additional lighting to the parking lot, establishing proper shade trees in the parking lot, and replacing asphalt with permeable concrete pavers. We are working hard to raise the funds needed to complete the project. Your support is appreciated!
