Park Place General Hospital to get a new wing

       The family of the late Dr. John S. Beverly has once again shown their benevolence by donating the funds to build a new wing on the west end of Park Place General Hospital.  Jackson R. Beverly, the grandson of the late Dr. Beverly is carrying on the family tradition that the late Dr. Beverly started in 1976 when he donated his old plantation home and property to be used to open The Beverly Hill's Children's Home and Orphanage. The new wing of the hospital will be built as an oncology center with state-of-the-art equipment for diagnosing and treating cancer patients. Park Place residents will no longer have to make the trip to Charlotte for treatment. Construction starts in September, 2016 and an estimated completion date of June, 2017.

Women's Softball Team Goes to State Finals

        Park Place's very own Diamond Diva's Softball Team will be traveling to Columbia on Friday to participate in the state finals for Women's Softball. A stand-out on the team, Penny Evans, spoke to this reporter last week. "We're out to win," she said right after practice on Thursday night. "We have the best pitcher in the league and every single one of our girls have hit the ball out of the park at least once this season. We're not settling for second best. We want victory!" The girls around her were cheering her own. Let's not forget to wish them luck this week.
