Felder, Chairman, State Easter Seal Board of Directors, ably assisted by Marion Baker, State President and Tommy Thompson, Executive Director of the South Carolina Law Enforcement Officers Association; and Thomas L. Sponseller, Executive Director and Henry Finch, State President of the South Carolina Restaurant Association, this program is destined to raise thousands of dollars to aid our very deserving children and adults and assist them in overcoming their disabilities; and
Whereas, the "B.A.C." buttons go on sale Wednesday, March 18, 1998; and
Whereas, the "B.A.C." project and all other programs of the Easter Seal Society deserve the support, merit, and praise of all citizens of the State. Now, therefore,
