    More than 200 Indian Land High School graduates from the Classes of 1930 to 1978 gathered for lunch June 26 to reminisce about their earlier years, when the community was smaller and the schools were too.

    Tuesday wasn’t the first time the Rev. Wayne Murray approached City Council with a host of concerns regarding hospitality tax grant funding.

    Though Hope on the Hill has received $125,000 from the city in the past, he was disappointed the organization had been turned down for funding multiple times since then.
