Almost everyone who has a computer knows what Facebook is, or has a Facebook page on the world wide web. Facebook is a way of bringing busy people together online, who might otherwise never be able to visit and/or see each other at all. The world wide web has made this possible through the many forms called "social media", Facebook being one of them. Two innovative former Ehrhardt, SC ladies have found a way to unite young and old alike online. Susan Kearse Clayton and Martha Clayton Banfield, both originally from the small town of Ehrhardt, SC, began the "Fans of Ehrhardt SC" Facebook page for their small hometown. Members look forward to competing online in the "Ehrhardt Trivia", Antique Challenge, and History Challenge. Susan and Marty have found that the "Fans of Ehrhardt, SC" group has begun a remarkable thing-uniting family and friends online.

For instance, a man from Bamberg, SC goes to his elderly father's house every evening, just to read the "Ehrhardt Trivia Question" to his father. His father waits on the son, and they do this together. He reported that his father gets almost every trivia question right, since he knows alot of the history of the town. Another young boy borrows his "uncle's" computer and plays Ehrhardt Trivia, and this brings old and young together, and also teaches the younger some of their hometown history.

Grand Prizes of $100 (1st place)$75.00 (2nd Place) and $50.00 (3rd Place) were recently given out to the top Trivia winners at the annual Ehrhardt SC Schuetzenfest Festival.

Susan Kearse Clayton, group hostess, is the daughter of Sadie R. Kearse and Ben Kearse, is a Georgia Southern University graduate with an extensive graphics background in publishing. She owns and operates Kearse Media Solutions ( kearsemedia.net ), creating and designing web sites, brochures, booklets, and other promotional materials.

Marty Clayton Banfield, publisher of the Lowcountry Light Magazine, of Bamberg, SC, is the group founder/hostess, and together she and Susan have found a way to make the history of their small hometown come alive on the world wide net.
