The Upper Palmetto YMCA held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday for the completion of its Mess Hall at Camp Cherokee in Kings Mountain State Park.
The original mess hall was first built in 1937.
YMCA Chief Executive Officer Moe Bell says the new mess hall features a better kitchen.

The redesigned mess hall was completed last month through a partnership with the South Carolina Park Service and the YMCA.
The expanded facility will accommodate more campers and additional programming for Camp Cherokee.
