Greer Relief celebrated the opening of its Christmas Morning Shoppe on Monday. The nonprofit’s annual program allows families that qualify to purchase gifts for their children at a discounted rate.
He was force to be reckoned with for all opposing defenses in 2019. Byrnes running back Rahjai Harris led his team to an 11-2 record and two playoff wins, and he made it look easy at times.
The Byrnes girls basketball team topped Greer, 58-34, last week on the road.
The Lady Tigers are on a three-game hot streak, following wins over Christ Church (55-42), Chapman (85-46) and Landrum (58-29) last week. With the wins, the Blue Ridge girls basketball team improves to 5-2 on the season.
The Greer Christmas Parade bounced back in 2019, showcasing 101 entries a year after having to cancel the event due to weather. The annual event, benefitting Greer Relief, capped a weekend of Christmas festivities in Greer.
It takes quite a bit of work to bring a Christmas parade to life. Previously organized by the Greer Jaycees, Greer Relief took control of parade operations in the city about seven years ago, and the annual tradition has continued to grow.
