VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO CONGRATULATE THE CAMDEN REVOLUTIONARY WAR INTERPRETIVE SIGNAGE PROJECT ON BEING NOMINATED FOR THE NATIONAL SOCIETY DAUGHTERS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION (NSDAR) HISTORIC PRESERVATION RECOGNITION AWARD AND THE COMMITTEE'S CHAIRMAN, WILLARD POLK, ON BEING NOMINATED FOR THE NSDAR HISTORIC PRESERVATION MEDAL.
Whereas, the South Carolina General Assembly is pleased to learn that the Camden Revolutionary War Interpretive Signage Project has been nominated to receive the NSDAR Historic Preservation Recognition Award and that the committee's chair, Willard Polk, has been nominated to receive the NSDAR Historic Preservation Medal; and
Whereas, project committee members, who served from 2007 to 2009, include Willard Polk (chair), Jim Piecuch, Charles Baxley, David Reuwer, Peggy Ogburn, Johnny Miller, Joanna Craig, Nancy Stone-Collum, and Rob McCaskill; and
Whereas, the NSDAR Historic Preservation Recognition Award is an honor presented to worthy individuals and groups for outstanding achievement in areas of historic preservation, including buildings, landmarks, monuments, cemeteries, historic districts, statues, archival materials, and historic properties. Rightly believing that the Camden Revolutionary War Interpretive Signage Project is worthy of the honor for their extraordinary dedication and commitment to preserving and protecting sites and properties pertaining to the Revolutionary period in Camden and Kershaw County, the Hobkirk Hill Chapter NSDAR has nominated the committee for this prestigious award; and
Whereas, the project, initiated in 2007, now has approximately thirty-five historical wayside street signs located at the Historic Camden Revolutionary War Park, the Hobkirk Hill battle site, and the Battle of Camden memorial field, as well as other significant Revolutionary War sites. As a result of the committee's efforts, a countywide Revolutionary Trail has been developed, which serves today as an educational directive to visitors and the community, connecting the major battlefields and Historic Camden; and
Whereas, further, the ideals and spirit of the DAR are clearly reflected in the tireless voluntarism of Mr. Polk and the committee members, who gave countless hours of their personal time over several years writing grants, researching, designing, producing, and editing the historical signs and supplemental materials, including the Camden District Revolutionary War Trails brochure, available at the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce, Historic Camden, Camden Archives, and other South Carolina battle sites and visitor centers; and
Whereas, the NSDAR Historic Preservation Medal was designed to honor an individual whose dedicated volunteer study and promotion of historic preservation have made a distinguished contribution on the regional, state, or national level for many years. Mr. Polk's noble efforts to preserve the past, enhance the present, and invest in the future are a true embodiment of all this medal represents. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, congratulate the Camden Revolutionary War Interpretive Signage Project on being nominated for the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) Historic Preservation Recognition Award and the committee's chairman, Willard Polk, on being nominated for the NSDAR Historic Preservation Medal.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be provided to Willard Polk for the Camden Revolutionary War Interpretive Signage Project.
