On Fri., Oct. 20, at 5:30 p.m., the City of Hartsville Parks and Recreation department will host a ribbon cutting event in recognition of the new kayak dock at Lawton Park. The project was organized and completed by Ryan Traver, Boy Scout Troop 523, as his Eagle Scout project.

“I’ve grown up in Hartsville, I love the city and the people here, and I wanted to do something that would benefit the community,” says Ryan Traver, “I’ve been kayaking and canoeing since I was 8 or 9 years old, and I thought this project would be a great way to give back to the people of Hartsville.”

For more information about the event, contact City of Hartsville Parks and Recreation at 843.339.2878.
