East Cooper Meals on Wheels welcomed the following participants to the 2014 Community Champions Day: Mayor Linda Page, Mount Pleasant; Mayor Pro-Tem, Jerry Kaynard, Sullivan's Island; Mayor Dick Cronin, Isle of Palms; Mr. Mark Smith, Town of Mount Pleasant Council Member; Ms. Thomasena Stokes-Marshall, Town of Mount Pleasant Council Member; and Ms. Christina Zapolski, Miss South Carolina USA.
