From the Desk of the Administrator

October 2020

 

This past month I celebrated my one-year anniversary as your Town Administrator. I have enjoyed getting to know many of the wonderful citizens in Town. Pacolet is a special place, and I am grateful for the opportunity to help the Town move forward. As a Town, we must continue to work together to address and correct issues that arise. If you have an issue, problem or complaint you would like addressed please know you can always reach me by email (agantte@townofpacolet.com) or by phone (864-474-9442).

 

New News: Pacolet Pumpkin Patch- Join us in Pacolet on Halloween night from 4PM-7PM for a scavenger hunt around Town. Make your way through Town and collect candy from all the ‘pumpkins’.

Maps can be picked up at any of the participating locations. We will have 400 meals to hand out and they will be given first come first serve.

Old News: Pacolet Indian Summer Festival – Thank you to everyone who came and spent the day in the Flats enjoying great food, music, and fellowship. Typically, the Indians are the festivals paid entertainment, unfortunately this year they did not show interest in coming, we were told due to COVID-19. We reallocated those funds and were able to add some great music additions to the festival this year. A special thank you to Lindsey Davis for planning and coordinating the festival. Without her tireless effort, the festival would not have been possible. Thank you, Lindsey!
