February 28, 2019

FLORENCE, S.C. – Chuck MacNeil and the Parking Lot Mission are the 2019 recipients of Marion Medallions.

The medallions were presented Wednesday morning by Francis Marion University and the Morning News in a ceremony at FMU’s Performing Arts Center.

MacNeil is the retiring executive director of the Pee Dee Regional Transit Authority. He has served in that position since October 2011.

The Parking Lot Mission was founded approximately 25 years ago to serve breakfast and provide essentials each Saturday morning for those in need in the east Florence community.

The mission was founded by Carol Roach; her husband, Larry; Greg Bonham; and Janet Owens.

This is the eighth year that Marion Medallions have been presented to unsung heroes in the community.
