Community kicks off March of Dimes’ 2017 March for Babies campaign
Community members came together last Thursday, August 31, to kick off the March of Dimes’ 2017 Chesterfield-Marlboro March for Babies.
The march itself will take place Saturday, November 4, from First United Methodist Church in Bennettsville. Between now and then, teams of family members, friends and co-workers will raise money to help meet this year’s fundraising goal of $58,000.
March for Babies, previously called WalkAmerica, is the nation’s oldest fundraising and awareness walk, raising almost $2.5 billion since its inception in 1970 to fund research and programs aimed at preventing premature births, birth defects and infant deaths.

Due to a tornado watch that is in effect through game time, the Bulldogs' annual grudge-match with Scotland County won't happen this year.  The game had been moved to Thursday, in hopes of missing the bad weather.  However, a thunderstorm hit Bennettsville very near the 7 p.m. scheduled kickoff.  The coaches then rescheduled the contest back to the initial start time of 7:30 Friday night.

With storms again in the forecast and now the tornado watch, MCHS athletic director and head football coach Dean Boyd cancelled the game shortly after 2 p.m. today.
