Horry County Schools will host our quarterly meeting. Even if you do not have children in our local schools, you are still paying school taxes so come learn more about the operations of our local school district, the incredible work and achievements that are happening in our schools, and the many volunteer opportunities that exist for you to get involved with the youth in our community.
