Palmetto Island State Park Fund


A recent contribution to the Palmetto Island State Fund at CFA was made by Chesapeake Energy Corporation on February 17, 2012:
"Our investment in CFA is particularly exciting since all citizens in the area will receive enjoyment from Palmetto Island State Park, said Paul Pratt, Chesapeake's Director - Corporate Development. "At Chesapeake, we believe in improving the quality of life in the areas in which we work, live and raise our families, and this project is a great example of our corporate values and commitment to this state."
