If live in an apartment in West Columbia, SC, here are some things to do around town next week.
Like to play a few rounds of golf? Like to attend events where the money you throw down goes to a good cause? Well, then you might want to take the day off from work and head down to the Edisto Clemson Club Scholarship Golf Tournament at the Orangeburg Country Club, where your time on the links — $75 per player, $300 per team — will help to provide a $1,000 scholarship to an accepted freshman from Orangeburg, Bamberg or Calhoun county. The tournament gets started at noon. Head toedistoclemsonclub.weebly.com to find out more.
Finding a job is hard — especially these days. Sure, the economy is bouncing back, but the pickings still seem awful slim. Improve your odds by heading to the Midlands Job Fair at the S.C. National Guard Armory, where more than 60 potential employers will be on the lookout for new workers. The fair lasts from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is free to attend. Visit midlandsworks.org to find out more.
Or perhaps you’d rather work for yourself. If you’re looking to get with the entrepreneurial spirit, you can head to 1 Million Cups, a weekly meetup of people who have already started their own business and folks who are hungry to do the same. The free event includes coffee and runs from 9-10 a.m. at Cromer’s P-Nuts. Visitfacebook.com/1MillionCupsColumbiaSC for more information.
