GHS MARCHING BAND IN ST. LOUIS PARADE                                     

The Greenville High School Marching Comets were honored this year by marching in the St. Louis Thanksgiving Day Parade.  WGEL spoke with Band Director Ryan Thomason.
Thomason wanted to thank everyone who supported the students, whether they watched on television or if they came to see the parade.  There was a great community outpouring of support for the band.  Thomason said that the kids did a wonderful job, and that he was extremely pleased and impressed with their performance.  The GHS band was rated 6th out of 11 bands in the parade.  Thomason was happy about this, as GHS was competing against a bunch of larger schools.  The band performed so well, that they have already been invited to apply to appear at next year’s parade.  Thomason hopes that this becomes an annual event for the Marching Comets.

COME HOME FOR CHRISTMAS A SUCCESS

The Come Home for Christmas event was a huge success last Friday night.  The weather may have made Santa Claus a little bit late but nothing stopped Greenville citizens from Coming Home for Christmas Friday night.  A large number of people gathered on the courthouse lawn and on the streets surrounding the square to see the much anticipated courthouse lighting.  Audrey Walter of the Greenville Women’s Club spoke about all the hard work of planning activities for the evening.  She thanked Barb Smith and Frank Schneider for their efforts in raising money for the courthouse lights.  Martha Iler was thrilled to see the fabulous turnout and the beautifully lit courthouse.  Some bad weather made Santa a little bit late but the night was a huge success.  As children lined up to visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus, music filled the air as the crowd joined carolers as they sang Santa Claus is Coming to Town The Greenville Women’s Club is still seeking donations to help finish the courthouse lighting project. If you would like to make a donation, contact Barb Smith at Gold Reality, located at 108 West Main Street in Greenville.
