My high school, Westminster High, closed the year I graduated because the community merged two schools and built a new one.  Saturday night we had "The Final Four"  30 year reunion.  Of my class, I was disappointed that only 11 of us attended.  I am not sure why someone would not attend.  Yes, I am aware that you have lost the connection that you had with the members of that group.  I have moved on, as well.  There isn't one member of my graduation class that I see on a monthly basis.  Many of them have moved away but most of them are still local.  For me, it is a great time to reflect because there were a lot of photos from our high school years.  I also caught up with what my classmates are doing these days.  It was an opportunity for me to "brag" about my children.  (I took photos, o...

Are you one of those people that appreciates the beauty of nature? Do you enjoy looking out your window and seeing the mountains? Does the thought of cool mountain breezes sound good to you? Then maybe you may want to look at homes for sale in Westminster South Carolina. Nestled in Oconee County in Upstate South Carolina, Westminster is a wonderful area that has homes for every budget. However, there is a problem with looking for homes online. Most people don't want to be hounded by an agent after registering on some website. We understand that and don't blame people for feeling this way. I realize that you may be in the information gathering stage, and may not be ready to “open up” about who you are, or what your needs are at this time. This is perfectly okay and understandable. Everyo...

Westminster is in Oconee County in Upstate South Carolina sitting at the foothills of the beautiful Appalachian Mountains. It was started mostly as a train depot along the railroad. Then as stores, shops and factories started to set up along the train stop, it bloomed into a decent-sized town. The population was 2,743 at the 2000 census and in 2007 was 2,668. Westminster and the nearby community of Long Creek have several commercial apple orchards. Which of course leads to mentioning the South Carolina Apple Festival. Starting the week after Labor Day and running for two weeks, the South Carolina Apple Festival celebrates the beginning of apple harvest season in Oconee County, the largest apple-producing area in the state. The annual festival draws thousands of visitors to the Westminst...

I read this article today and almost fell out of my seat. It seems that the Oconee County Council this week approved entering into a partnership agreement with Westminster that will see a disc golf course build on about 18 acres adjacent to Chau Ram Park. The new park would be the county’s third with the others being in Seneca and Walhalla. The Walhalla course even hosted the South Carolina State Junior Disc Golf Championship earlier in this year. If you have never played disc golf, it is similar in concept to the normal golf but instead of a hole in the ground you are aiming for a basket suspended around a pole. Just as relaxing or stressful as the more popular form of golf.
