The public is invited to view a special Quilts of Valor display at the Horry County Museum, located at 805 Main Street, Conway, SC. Quilts made especially for eighteen local veterans will be on display in the Museum November 12th through December 17th. The mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation (QOVF) is to cover all service members and veterans, touched by war, with a comforting and healing quilt. In 2003, Catherine Roberts, the founder of the QOVF, had a son deployed to Iraq. She struggled with how to stay busy and keep her mind busy while he was in harm’s way.

The 2020 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with Southern Stews: A Taste of the South. The traditions of cooking communal stews in huge black iron pots stirred with wooden paddles has long been a way of Southern gatherings-whether at hunt clubs, church or family reunions, during holidays, or special events such as commemorating the end of harvests or to feed workers helping out at hog killing time. These stews required a number of workers, with a division of labor usually split between women and men.
