This first installment of ?Did You Know? with host Joe Pinner, takes a look at the history of 1626 Main Street in downtown Columbia. The history includes the original organization that built the building in 1907 and some of the well-known tenants that called 1626 Main Street home for the last 108 years.
The most recent renovation by Agapé Senior has transformed the space into a retail pharmacy and high-tech internal pharmacy on the ground and mezzanine level. The balance of the building has been turned into office space for about 100 management personnel.
The new pharmacy serves the needs of senior clients throughout South Carolina as a distribution center and also functions as a retail pharmacy for downtown residents and workers.
Daniel Bundrick, Vice President of Pharmacy Services at Agapé Senior talks about how technology has transformed pharmacy services within Agapé Senior. The new technology called the Talyst Central Fill System is revolutionizing the way medications are dispensed and distributed and Agapé is pioneering the implementation in the state. The Auto-Fill System eliminates waste, improves efficiency, improves accuracy and allows nursing staff and caregivers to spend more time caring for patients by streamlining medication management

November winds scattered the Agapé Hospice Life Blooms Eternally memorial display at Winthrop Lake in Rock Hill. The display was in disarray and many umbrellas had blown into the lake before hospice staff arrived. When the clouds cleared and the winds died down it became apparent that the celebration of life would triumph as the reflections of the floating umbrellas in the lake stretched across the still waters to remind us of the beauty of the lives they represented.

First Thursday on Main Street in Columbia is a celebration of the arts, fine dining, music and the new spirit of downtown Columbia.
What started as one business Frame of Mind having an art show to attract more business to their store over five years ago, has grown into a full blown celebration that takes place the first Thursday of each month.
The venue which was once limited to just a couple of blocks has grown to encompass the entire length of the downtown portion of Main Street. There are over 18 restaurants, several art galleries, floral shops, hair salons and many other retail establishments that participate each month.
Each first Thursday around 5:30 PM hundreds of people begin to gather to stroll amongst the many establishments sampling food, looking at works of art by local artists, listening to live music, and generally just having a great time.
Michaels Café and Good Life Café are relatively new comers to the event but have wasted no time getting into the spirit of the Main Street celebration. This video shows the talented musicians in Flat Out Strangers that performed at Good Life Café during the October event.

James Prosser was an ordinary soldier who happened to be involved in one of the most extraordinary battles in the history of the world. The D-Day invasion changed the course of history forever. The 29th Infantry Division of which James Prosser was a member played a decisive role when it successfully assaulted Omaha Beach on D-Day, June 6, 1944, as part of the greatest amphibious invasion in history. The D-Day landings turned the tide of World War II and marked the beginning of the end for Nazi Germany.
On this beautiful morning in Sumter, South Carolina on the steps of the County Courthouse people gathered to honor a soldier that had completed his call of duty over two thirds of a century earlier. The attendees were residents of the Sumter community along with officers and enlisted personnel from Shaw Air Force Base and politicians both local and statewide. Mr. Prosser was being awarded "Knight of the Order of the Legion of Honor of the Republic of France" presented by Monsieur Benard D. Marie. The order is the highest decoration in France and was bestowed on behalf of the grateful Nation of France for the sacrifices Mr. Prosser and so many of his fellow soldiers made on that heroic day so long ago.
During the ceremony the flags of both France and United States were presented by the Sumter High School ROTC Color Guard. The National Anthem of each Nation was played by the Fort Jackson Military Band. The staff of Agapé Hospice of Sumter was proud to attend the award ceremony and hosted a reception that followed the event for the family and guests of Mr. Prosser.
