Patriotic banners dedicated at Celebration

Many local businesses, organizations and citizens joined together with Greenville’s Sasanqua Garden Club this summer in a project designed to make the streets of the Camellia City more beautiful while the city showed pride in the USA.

The organization and its project chair, Jill Stallworth, were recognized for their efforts Thursday night at Greenville Main Street’s Red, White and Blue Celebration.

Over 30 patriotic banners featuring an eye-catching flag design can be seen throughout the downtown area and on the by-pass thanks to donations by the following:

Smith and Albert E. Schrantz, WW II veterans), The Pineapple, Pride of Greenville Garden Club, Rotary Club, Sasanqua Garden
