    I am writing in reference to several letters that I have read over the past months concerning the proposed town of Indian Land.
    Just to give some background, my family is originally from Indian Land (150 or so years), and my parents moved down to Lancaster when I was a small child. My husband and I moved back to Indian Land 27 years ago so that our children could attend a small community school and we could build a home on the original family land. I have many fond memories of Lancaster and Indian Land.
