COMET PRIDE ALL OVER TOWN

 

The whole community is supporting the undefeated Greenville Comets. We talked to Football Dad, Dave Doll who said he was elected to put up the signs around town because they were stored in his shed from last year. He was glad to spread the Comet Pride around town. 

 

Cheer on the undefeated Comets Football Team as they take on Columbia on Saturday in Highland, at 2:00 PM.

UTLAUT MEMORIAL FOUNDATION LAUNCHES 2008 YEAR-END APPEAL

 

The Utlaut Memorial Foundation is launching a year-end appeal to raise funds that will enhance patient safety through the purchase of new equipment and technological systems.  In 2007, funds raised through the year-end campaign helped offset the expense of the purchase of a monitoring system for the Family Birth Center.   Funds raised through the 2008 campaign will be used to purchase items to assist in the recent expansion and renovation of the laboratory, pharmacy, and imaging services departments.  Donations may be sent to Greenville Regional Hospital.  For more information, call 664-1230, ext. 3006.
