By day she’s an office manager, handling the affairs of Greenville Little Theatre (GLT). By night, she’s an actress, living out her dreams on stage.
Vic and Gail Campbell’s annual Olde Tyme Farm Day was held last Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Log Cabin Farm in Blue Ridge. Among the activities at the event were antique displays, an apple cider press, spinning and felting, blacksmithing and children’s crafts.
Big Thursday benefiting Greer Community Ministries (GCM) is Nov. 5 at Fairview Baptist Church, 1300 Locust Hill Road, Greer, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
A bazaar, silent auction, appraisal fair, barbecue lunch, and a hot dog supper are part of the event that raises critical funds for the ministry.
For Gail and Vic Campbell, October is about taking a horse-drawn trip down memory lane—back to a time when life was simpler and things were made by hand.
That’s why the couple is bringing back Olde Tyme Farm Day, an event that began in the 1980s, for another year.
Who would your wife want you to marry after she passes away?
That’s the question Greer’s Nancy Turner Welch explores in her new fiction book, “Alice’s List,” recently released online and in local stores.
Welch describes her 93-page work as a “clever way to look at life after you lose a spouse.”
It’s time to get vintage in downtown Greer.
Entering its fifth year in Greer, Vintage Market in the Park will make its way back to City Park this Saturday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., featuring repurposed, handmade and antique items from more than 60 vendors.
It’s an old fashioned bazaar. It’s a shopping experience. It’s a barbecue lunch and a hot dog supper. It’s a display of talented bakers, artists, and craftsmen. Big Thursday is an event that brings out the best from Greer Community Ministries’ (GCM) support base.
A mangy old dog straggles across a stage, dragging his weathered leash behind him. He saunters directly in front of a performing band. Anywhere else, this might seem out of place. But the only thing more appropriate on this stage, nestled in the Blue Ridge woods, would be if a skunk wandered in front of the band.
Ernest Conley isn’t a writer. At least, he wasn’t prior to discovering a book on how to write.
“I love to read, and my wife and I used to go up to the Salvation Army store to get books. For some stupid reason, I picked up a book on how to write,” he said. “I have no skills, no training. Just a love for it.”
Nearly nine months have passed since the Jan. 4 fire at Hollywild that claimed 27 of the park’s animals, and officials want the public to know that they’re open and the animals that survived smoke inhalation are doing well.
