The Most Exciting Live Entertainment Game in South Carolina

If you’re looking for an adrenaline-filled, pulse-pounding way to have fun all day, grab an axe and get your throw on at Lumber Jill’s! Axe throwing is the newest, most popular live entertainment game in the Lowcountry. It’s kind of like darts…but with axes! Axe throwing is great for a few hours of amusement, stress relief, team building, and even corporate events in Summerville, SC. Whether you’re looking for a great way to celebrate the weekend or want a new idea for your company event, Lumber Jill’s has got you covered.

The Lumber Jill’s revolution began after co-owners Jill and Heath spent a date night with friends throwing axes in Charleston. After having so much fun, the entrepreneurial couple quickly realized they could create their own take on axe throwing. Soon after, Lumber Jill’s was born!

The name Lumber Jill’s isn’t just a play on our co-owner’s name – it involves a really interesting piece of history too. Across the pond, the Women’s Timber Corps “manned” the lumber yards in England while the men were serving in WWII. They affectionately became known as Lumberjills, Britain’s answer to Rosie the Riveter. Without these brave ladies, Lumber Jill’s wouldn’t exist. We would be remiss if we didn’t salute them for the example they set!

At the end of the day, we want to provide every one of our guests with an outstanding axe-throwing experience. So, grab your friends, co-workers, family, or favorite people and join us for an axe-throwing party you won’t soon forget.

Why is Axe Throwing in Summerville, SC So Popular?

Axes haven’t been this popular in America since “The Shining” hit theaters way back in 1980!

In cities all around the nation, axe-throwing facilities are popping up left and right as a fun, healthy way for people of all ages to congregate and enjoy a night of friendly competition and stress relief. In the last few years, the sport of axe throwing has exploded – so much so that the World Axe Throwing League was assembled in 2017 to coordinate international axe-throwing competitions. Since that time, many axe-throwing events have popped up on national TV stations like ESPN.

But why is axe throwing so popular? Here are just a few reasons why Lumber Jill’s and axe throwing as a whole is a hit in South Carolina:
stress-relief
Stress Relief

Perhaps the most popular reason folks love axe throwing in Summerville is for stress relief. We’ve even heard some customers say it’s a cheaper form of therapy! In reality, axe tossing gives you a therapeutic release that is hard to replicate. A few hard throws with an axe and your body releases a flood of endorphins, which help increase your energy, improve your mood, and facilitate healthy blood flow. If you have pent-up anger, nothing feels better than chucking a heavy axe at a target. Hitting a bullseye is even better!

Exercise

Since axe throwing is such an exhilarating activity, many people don’t realize that they are exercising their arms, legs, abs, pecs, and even back when they come to Lumber Jill’s. Like high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts, axe throwing works several muscle groups at once. These exercises strengthen your core and help define your muscles. When coupled with a healthy diet, regular axe-throwing activities can even help you shed a few pounds.

“Small Town Christmas” films in Summerville

Summerville recently attracted national attention as film crews for the first-ever season of UPtv’s “Small Town Christmas” stopped by on their tour of small towns throughout the nation.

Summerville was one of four towns that the crew explored, along with Branson, Mo., Bethlehem, Pa., and Natchitoches, La. Megan Alexander, who is the executive producer and host of the show, said the towns were selected from a list of places she was interested in visiting.

“We needed to find four small towns that kicked things off early in November to get things on air for TV,” Alexander said. “I made a list of small towns that I would love to try to visit and ultimately came down a lot to logistics and scheduling.”

Alexander, who is a mom to three children, said the idea was born from her family’s love of traveling during the holiday season as a way to experience what Christmas is like in different places. When COVID-19 hit, Alexander’s itch to start up the show and travel only continued to grow. This year, she set off to each selected small town to finally film and experience the holidays.

“I thought this would be a boost to local tourism and small businesses,” Alexander said. “The big cities tend to get all of the attention, but I thought, ‘Let’s bring the cameras to them, let’s show them what’s happening in our small towns.’ There’s so many wonderful people, and I knew there would be such an appetite for it.”

Christmas in Summerville

Alexander was joined by a crew of seven other team members, including Kevin McIntyre, who is the director of photography, Kassidy Sell, who is the field producer, and Matt Disbrow, Benji Robinson, Sean Conlon and Nick Smiga, who are members of the film crew.

Tina Zimmerman, who is tourism director for Summerville, said there was a group effort throughout town to help showcase Summerville while the film crew visited.

“Everyone in the town pulled together to make it happen,” Zimmerman said.

During her time in town, Alexander said she visited with local merchants and community members. She filmed segments of the show during the Old Time Summerville Christmas Celebration and the Summerville Christmas Parade.

From staying at the Linwood Inn, located off Palmetto Street, to sipping a peppermint mocha from Cuppa Manna downtown, Alexander said that she feels as though she got the full Summerville experience.

“I felt like I got to experience Southern hospitality by staying there,” Alexander said. “We got to experience the live windows displays and Christmas trees on Mistletoe Lane.”

This year, Zimmerman said, the town’s participation in local events, including the live window displays during the Old Time Summerville Christmas Celebration, was at an all-time high.

“It was a lot of work for them to do the live windows, especially this year with a shortage of staff and what they’ve been through,” Zimmerman said. “But we had record participation and adorable creative windows.”

Zimmerman thinks the publicity Summerville will get from being featured on the show will bring more tourists to the area.

“If we did the same thing we did this year next year, everyone will be glad they visited,” Zimmerman said.

The Summerville episode of the show will have its world broadcast premiere on Christmas Eve at 9 p.m. The show will be aired on UPtv on channel 124.

“I just felt like it was such a blessing and a privilege to tell those stories, to showcase these small towns and the faces behind these small towns,” Alexander said.

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCIV) — A 10-year-old Summerville hero! Aussie Talbott- who saved her entire family from a fire- is now receiving national recognition.

Brave and courageous are a just a few of the words that come to mind when describing Aussie Talbott.

Aussie is a Summerville girl who says she could have never imagined her life would change so quickly.

“It is one of those things that you see happening, you see it on the news or something, but you never think it would happen to you. It was terrible. I am just so thankful everyone was so kind and helpful," says Aussie.

Back in April, Aussie woke up at 4 a.m. to the sight of flames in her home. That’s when she sprinted into action. She woke her entire family up and got them to safety in time.

“In times like that it is okay to be scared, but you still have to be brave, and you have to be prepared for it," says Aussie.

Now Aussie is being featured in the January edition of Highlights Magazine, as an inspiration for how others can be strong, especially in the worst of situations.

“Some people do not have the courage for some things, but I feel like when there is a time like that, because I did not really have much courage, but during a time like that, all of my body gave me courage and bravery, it made me feel like I had to do something,” says Aussie.

Aussie tells us since the fire, life has only gotten better. She and her family have a new home and are back on their feet. Her family says they could not have done it without the help of Flowertown Elementary, Ashley Ridge High School, And Summerville Fire And Rescue.

“Everything has a silver lining, so it will come to you, with us, our silver lining is that we got everything, we are back on our feet now. there is always a silver lining to everything, so I am sure that it will come eventually,” says Aussie.

Aussie has also been recognized by the town of Summerville and the South Carolina State Senate.

These days require care, prayer, and thought coupled with bravery.

Thank you for going where no Pike Piddlers Storytelling Festival has gone before. Onward! …Tim Lowry, storyteller.

With much thought and prayerful consideration, the Brundidge Historical Society’s Storytelling Festival committee decided to continue with its plans for the 2022 storytelling festival the last weekend in January.

“We had ‘pencil’ contracts with storytellers Donald Davis, Tim Lowry, Bil Lepp and Barbara McBride-Smith and, for a while it looked like, just maybe, there would be a window of opportunity at the end of January,” said Anne Register, committee chair. “But, then, came the omicron virus. We had to make a decision and it was not an easy one. Not moving forward would be moving backward. So, we made the decision to move forward based on being able to host the festival safely for all concerned.”

The BHS hosted the Chili Country Christmas in December with limited audiences and it worked well,” she said. “The Pike Piddlers Storytelling Festival will follow the same guidelines in numbers and in social distance seating. Masks will not be required but encouraged. We will do everything possible to make sure everyone is safe and that everyone has a great time.

The storytelling festival will feature nationally acclaimed storytellers, Davis, Lowry, Lepp and McBride-Smith. All are familiar to festival audiences and are excited to be back in Pike County.

Davis is the Dean of Storytelling and his hilarious stories make even the sternest Scrooge crack a smile.

Lowry is from Summerville S.C., the birthplace of sweet tea. He’s never saccharine but distinctly Southern.

Bil Lepp is a world champion liar from the mountains of West Virginia. He will have folks laughing and scratching their heads at the same time. Barbara McBride-Smith is a firecracker of a storyteller. She is women’s answer to Donald Davis.

After two years of concern and being “safer at home, the Brundidge Historical Society chose storytellers that would bring a wealth of laugher and good times to this year’s festival. And the committee hit the nail on the head.

“We have all been through two tough years and are not out of the woods yet,” said Johnny Steed, festival emcee. “But, we still have stories to tell and all four tellers are high energy and they will bring laughter to the stage. We all need a time relax and to laugh.”

The Pike Piddlers Storytelling Festival will open at 6:30 on Friday night, January 28 with supper and stories at the We Piddle Around Theater in Brundidge. Tickets are $25. The storytelling festival will continue with three storytelling concerts at the Trojan Center Theater on the campus of Troy University on Saturday, January 29 at 10 a.m. ($10), 2 p.m. ($15) and 6:30 p.m. ($10) All day tickets are $30. Pre-show music will begin 30 minutes prior to the concerts.

For tickets call Cathie Steed, ticket chair, at 334-685-5524 or 670-6302.

SUMMERVILLE — Town officials are weighing whether to increase impact fees to fund needed resources and infrastructure concerns with community growth.

The town’s planning commission suggested the council remove all discounts around impact fees. Officials have not come to a final decision around the fees, but will spend the next couple of weeks discussing whether to adjust them.

“We got to have help raising money,” said Summerville Mayor Ricky Waring.

An impact fee is a one-time payment placed on a new development or redevelopment. The fees can apply to commercial and residential spaces.

That money goes toward supporting public services like parks and recreation, fire protection and other municipal services. Essentially, it addresses the financial cost of a development.

The money collected will also feed into some of the capital improvements that address future growth. This includes amenities for parks and resources for the fire department.

What officials are determining is whether to continue adding a discount to impact fees — basically whether they will pay 100 percent of an impact fee, or a smaller percentage.

The fees are calculated based on the cost of a service, the amount of square footage or dwelling units created by the development and the average person per household or average employee space ratio.

The three types of services with impact fees are parks and recreation, fire protection and municipal services.

Each new development is required to pay all three fees except for certain cases with parks. Only residential developments pay impact fees for parks and recreation.

Currently in Summerville, developers are charged 20 percent of the maximum allowable park and recreation impact fee. With fire protection it’s 70 percent and with municipal services they are charged the full 100 percent.

If all of the discounts are removed, it could increase impact fees by thousands for some developments.

During a Jan. 10 special called meeting, Waring said he was in favor of reducing those discounts to raise fees.

Summerville has reached a point where the infrastructure isn’t keeping up with the growth in the community. Residents have continuously raised concerns over traffic and frequent flooding in certain areas.

Waring said he sees the impact fees as a way to help bring in more money to help with all the growth. Though he isn’t sure how much he would suggest the fees go up, he isn’t afraid to raise them.

“We’re falling behind,” he said.

Councilman Bob Jackson pointed toward a recent survey where most residents said they wouldn’t mind paying more in taxes if it meant supporting the parks throughout town.

He said he agreed that something has to be done to pay for the growth.

“We do owe it to our citizens to have something nice,” Jackson said.

Councilman Bill McIntosh spoke out against relying heavily on the impact fees. His fear is that if the fees get too high, they could place an unnecessary burden on a family trying to build a home.

He said he understands the need to find sources of revenue to help manage the growth.

“There are other mechanisms to do that,” he said.

One of the ways he suggested would be to manage the number of areas being annexed into the town and being rezoned for residential.

The problems Summerville is facing now stem from the growing number of residential areas throughout the town. Those communities require the town to extend more services into those areas.

Commercial and industrial spaces tend to bring in more funds into the town in comparison to residential communities.

Over the last couple of years, town officials disclosed that Summerville has long passed the point of being overrun with residential spaces.

Councilmembers were tasked with spending the next couple of weeks going over potential discount rates around the fees. Officials are determining if another special called meeting will be necessary.

The next town council meeting is on Jan. 13.
