The Park Hop, presented by Spinx, will culminate with a closing celebration, sponsored by Cunningham Recreation, today from 3-7 p.m. in Greer City Park. Children and families who participated in Park Hop are invited to celebrate with a family style picnic.
With summer winding down, high school bands across the Upstate are gearing up for a new year.
The Eastside Eagle Regiment is no different, putting in 12-hour days of rehearsal, getting ready for football games and competitions.
The new year will also bring a new face to the Riverside band. Dr. Quintus Wrighten Jr. will direct the Warriors this year. Wrighten comes to Riverside after serving on the University of Memphis faculty and teaching in Summerville.
The night the Taylors Free Medical Clinic opened, it saw 10 patients. At that time, it was open one day a week.
On Monday, the ninth anniversary of opening its doors, it took the next step in serving its patients.
With school just a few weeks away, band camps are in full swing and football teams are wrapping up 7-on-7 tournaments. It’s no different for Blue Ridge High’s choir.
For the first time, the choir is getting a head start on the school year, said Laura Morris.

Park Hop is an initiative between LiveWell Greenville, the Greenville Drive, the six cities in the county and Greenville County Recreation, among others. The scavenger hunt is designed to get families active and help them discover new parks.
Jim and Carolyn Gilliam were looking for somewhere to eat on the way home from Spartanburg when they stopped at a converted peach shed.
Now, 25 years later, it’s still their restaurant.
