St. Pauls is known as "The Little Town with the Big Heart" and for good reason. People here take care of each other, and this care transcends all economic, racial and ethnic differences.
The people of this community care. This caring manifests itself in many ways. There are enough volunteers to staff two volunteer fire departments, one rural and one city, and a rescue squad. When a fire does occur, and leaves a family homeless and/or possession-less, the community pitches in to lend a hand. Ministers and pastors from many area churches have formed an organization which collects and disburses money for families facing emergency situations, and this includes travelers off I-95 whose vehicles break down or who just run out of money. But the most amazing example of how St. Pauls cares is its John Walker Memorial Christmas Fund, a Lions Club project which began in 1986. Each year, in about six weeks, citizens donate thousands of dollars, over $18,000.00 in both 1998 and 1999, to assist less fortunate families at Christmas. To thank those who work to make St. Pauls such a fine place in which to live, a citizen group annually presents The Meacham Award for Outstanding Volunteer Service. This award was first presented in 1993.
