Leaders in Fountain Inn jumped on board said Byron Rucker, Director of Economic Development.

“It’s not a very involved and complicated move to do, but it means a lot to a lot of people,” Rucker explained. “It’s very well deserved and will make a big impact.”

Rucker says Fountain Inn is one of the first to put the signs up in the Upstate. He hopes even more towns will follow their lead.

A local business is donating their time and supplies to paint the parking spots purple.
