Charitable Gifting of Appreciated Stock

As always discuss your charitable giving with your tax advisor.
West Ashley Revitalization Planning Workshops
The West Ashley Revitalization Commission
invites you to plan West Ashley by participating in upcoming
community input workshops. The workshops are part of the City’s
plan to renew and revitalize West Ashley. The workshops will
give you the opportunity to voice your thoughts on what improvements
need to be made to the area. It is important that planning
officials hear from everyone so they can develop a master
plan that will benefit as many residents and businesses as
possible. The workshops will take place on four separate occasions.
You are invited to attend the one that best fits your schedule:
• Monday, April 24th 6-9 p.m. in the gym at John Wesley
