Council OKs 81 town homes

Eighty-one town homes are coming to the intersection of Highway 14 and Mitchell Drive, following a Greer City Council decision last week.

The property was annexed into the city for the purpose of development, but not without some opposition.

One local property owner asked council to reconsider its decision.

Sisters Whitney, left, and Bailey Campbell took some time to reflect on Memorial Day, finding their grandfather’s name, John D. Greer,  at Veteran’s Park downtown. Greer served two tours in Vietnam.

Remembering fallen veterans

Fallen veterans were remembered and honored at a Memorial Day Ceremony at Greenville County Square Monday morning.

The event, held in front of the memorial monument, featured performances from the Upstate Senior Concert Band and the Clearview Singers.
