North Charleston to honor long time community leader

The public is invited to celebrate the commitment, dedication, and contributions of Mr. Gary McJunkin to the City of North Charleston in the field of recreation on July 19, 2010 at 6:00 pm at Felix C. Davis Community Center (4800 Park Circle, North Charleston, SC 29405).  Complimentary refreshments will be served.

Affectionately known as “Mr. Mac,” Gary McJunkin has served the residents of North Charleston for over 55 years, seeing generations of families participate in quality recreational programs.  Mr. McJunkin’s contributions are many throughout North Charleston.  While administering North Charleston’s recreation program, he oversaw the building of ball fields, playgrounds, and developed a robust list of recreational activities.  Even when funds were scarce, Mr. McJunkin coordinated thousands of volunteers to give countless hours to the building of facilities and programs.

North Charleston Mayor R. Keith Summey stated, “Mr. McJunkin continues to be an active leader in the City’s recreation programs with many recreation professionals looking to him for guidance and support.  We in North Charleston are honored to have him as part of our city.  We salute Mr. McJunkin as a recreation professional, community leader, mentor, and friend of the City.”
