In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, Haile Gold Mine was delighted to honor two Kershaw couples who selflessly give back to the community.
Following a call for sweetheart couple nominations, Haile Gold Mine received so many submissions that the company decided it could not limit the award to just one couple, instead opting to double the love and honor two pairs of sweethearts.
The winning couples are Jim and Beverly Timmons, and Ashli and Ashley Young. Haile Gold Mine team members presented each couple with a dozen roses and a $100 giftcard to a restaurant of their choice.
“Reading all of the nominations made this Valentine’s Day even more special,” said David Londono, Executive General Manager, Haile Gold Mine. “The Timmonses and the Youngs are compassionate members of the community who give back so much. It is an honor to recognize their love and thank them for all that they do for us here in Kershaw.”
Jim and Beverly Timmons are well known in the community for their charitable giving and service to their neighbors. The couple met at Duke University and relocated to South Carolina after living in New Jersey and Wyoming. For over 40 years, Jim took care of the people of Kershaw through his medical practice and Beverly worked in the medical field as well. They continue to give back in a number of ways, including volunteering with KARE, hosting bible studies, and participating in Youth Serve and KCPC. They also help at the local library, with soccer teams, and at the tennis courts.
Ashli and Ashley Young embody service to their community through their respective careers as a registered nurse with Blue Cross Blue Shield and as an Agriculture Education teacher at Andrew Jackson High School. Their nominations noted that they are a great, loving couple. The Youngs regularly lead charitable initiatives for causes such as the Lancaster County Shelter, and volunteer their time with the FFA Chapter, Rich Hill Fall Days, and with the Second Baptist Church, where Ashli is the Youth Minister.
