Here In Greer is an enhanced community calendar we’ve had on the back burner for several years, often promoting the moniker through GreerToday.

Our launch for the new, comprehensive listing is no coincidence, timing it for the Solar Eclipse on Aug. 21. Coming Sunday is a comprehensive Solar Eclipse listing of community and college events and where optimal viewing is anticipated. We will add some eclipse safety tips, science and trivia along the way to enjoy the historic day.

Here in Greer today is just a small sample of things to come. Health seminars and presentations, church announcements, book signings and restaurants changing season menus are all part of the big picture.

Send us your event and we will add that to the list. The format is shown below and remember to include a contact name, email and website so we can share your news Here In Greer and within a short drive away.

• The best bet this week is the Greer Little Theatre’s double feature – Pirates Past Noon Kids and Dinosaurs Before Dark Kids. It’s free and annually a great event for children during the waning days of summer vacation.
