From Aiken to Augusta…

Formed in the summer of 2024, the Savannah River Chapter expanded the reach of the SCNPS to extend the entire length of the Georgia/South Carolina border, and made it easier than ever for folks in the greater Central Savannah River Area to attend in-person events. The chapter’s inaugural meeting will take place on June 4th at the Aiken downtown county library and will feature SCNPS President Dan Whitten.
