My town is my heart and soul. Every moment that I’ve spent in this town is a memeory I will forever love. From hanging flags the night before a football game, to prom, to graduating, and then off to college, Ware Shoals has stood by my side and I couldn’t be happier to tell people that this is where I’m from.

It has the feeling of the definition of small home town, although the small town being key word. We get over looked and a lot of employees for the town get underpaid for the work that they do. There is such a rich history of the town that so many new comers will never know because we do not have the funds to help change the town or bring it back to a vibrant life.
I have lived in ware shoals SC my whole life and I really enjoy 5his little town. Here there ain't a lot of violence. Everybody know everybody. And I love that our most favorite thing is the catfish feastival. And I never plan to move I'll be hers till I pass on.
