GREENVILLE REGIONAL HOSPITAL SOLIDIFIES AGREEMENT WITH ALDEN
The Greenville Regional Hospital Board of Directors has announced that arrangements with Alden Management Services are being finalized and that Alden assumed management of Fair Oaks Nursing Home on Monday.
Hospital President & CEO Brian Nall expressed excitement over the agreement and said he appreciated the support from the city and county.
The decision, made during a specially-convened July 11th hospital board meeting, will give the Chicago-based Alden the green light to provide services as they prepare for final lease agreements with the hospital.
GREENVILLE HOSTS THE CADETS

DeMoulin Bros. & Co. is the official uniform sponsor for the Cadets.
AMERICAN HERITAGE RAILROAD GETS NEW TRAIN
The American Heritage Railroad at the American Farm Heritage Museum in Greenville has a new addition. David Kessinger, President of the American Heritage Railroad, told WGEL that the “Blue Train” is the only operational train that they have at the museum right now. This has led to breakdowns and other mechanical issues over the years, so they decided to start looking for a replacement. They found a purple train set that was made in 1952 by the same miniature train company that built the blue train. The purple train has several mechanical upgrades, however it has a few issues that need to be resolved before it will be able to run on the American Heritage Railroad tracks. Kessinger added they hope the new train will be up and running by 2014. The public is still invited to come out and ride the blue train on the first Saturday of each month from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. through October. For more information, to volunteer, or to make a donation to the American Heritage Railroad, call Kessinger at 593-7742.
