If you’ve been paying attention to Rumors, you’ll know that the 2015 Charleston Conference is full steam ahead despite the unprecedented rain and flooding that has struck the state of South Carolina this week. Compared to Hurricane Hugo back in 1989, Joaquin was manageable for us in Charleston. We are very thankful that none of the conference facilities have been impacted. The Charleston Conference will definitely still go on. We will gather here in less than a month, and we’re looking forward to seeing you then!
Our hearts go out to those all across the state that have been affected by the floods, especially those in the midlands.
