Greer said goodbye to local legend Lonnie ‘Gee’ McGee at last Friday’s Greer High football game. He was presented with a Greer High jersey, a plaque and the key to the city during a pregame ceremony. Gee, who has spent decades attending games, marching with the band and making friends, moved to Clinton on Saturday.
