Penny for your thoughts can turn into $25 gift card

Published on Thursday, December 1, 2011

Here’s the hint the Greater Greer Chamber of Commerce sent to its members for First Friday’s mystery guest: “Penny for your thoughts?”  

The chamber’s staff has been giddily smug keeping the guest’s identity secret for the final Friday meeting this year. 

GreerToday.com will award a $25 gift card to Wild Ace Pizza and Pub for anyone emailing us before midnight tonight with the correct answer from the hint provided. Multiple correct answers will be drawn at Friday’s meeting. Chamber staff members and their families are ineligible. The chamber has ruled out Santa Claus.

We’ll report the winner, if there is one, immediately following Friday’s meeting on GreerToday.com, Twitter and Facebook.

The luncheon is one of the best-attended regularly scheduled events. There were 84 members registered as of this morning. The lunch line begins at 11:30 a.m. and meeting activities begin at 12:10 p.m.

Call 877-3131 to register or visit greerchamber.com.
