There will be three changes in The Greer Citizen’s publication schedule as the holidays approach.
Next week, the newspaper will go to press a day earlier due the Thanksgiving Holiday.
This means those wishing to submit an obituary, advertisement or content for the newspaper should do so by 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 20.
November is National Family Caregivers Month, and the Alzheimer’s Association is encouraging community members to check in on family members and friends who are serving as Alzheimer’s caregivers.
Breakfast with Santa is sold out.
The popular holiday tradition, held by the City of Greer each year, will take place on Saturday, Dec. 5 with three sessions from 8 a.m.-noon. Tickets went on sale on Monday at 7 p.m. online or by phone.
I finish off the last of the coffee, and throw a few things into a backpack and head to the woods. For the past few weeks, I have spent as much time as possible in a tree stand, but this morning I go, wielding a homemade walking stick and a small camera.
Many holiday traditions begin with family and friends gathered in the kitchen or around the dinner table. Food is an integral part of celebrating Thanksgiving, Christmas and Chanukah, and key components of each holiday are tied exclusively to food.
The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) has released tips to celebrate Halloween safely during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Some of those tips include:
-Not using a costume mask in place of a cloth mask
-Keeping masks on at all times
-Skipping houses that don’t have precautions in place

He is encouraging the potential for violence before, during, and after the election.
Q: I recently received my master’s degree in finance, and for the last four years I’ve had a job as a social worker. I love my job and have a decent income, but I know I could make more money and come closer to reaching my full potential in the finance industry. I’m on Baby Step 2, and I have lots of debt.
