When Bill and I started YC Magazine, we had high ideals. We wanted a publication full of information you can use today for the York County, SC, community. Enjoy our April 2017 issue.

It all started when Bill turned to me and asked, “Want to start a magazine?” That was back in September 2003. After 160 YC Magazine issues spanning over 14 years, it is with deep regret that I announce Bill Henson, editor and co-publisher, passed away. We will miss him greatly. Memorial services are being scheduled, with details forthcoming on the YC Magazine Facebook page.

~ Pam Henson, co-publisher
