GREENVILLE--Part of the fun of summertime is being able to enjoy a meal outside - especially while listening to beautiful music live. Just such an event will be available on the Library lawn Aug. 3rd. To celebrate “First Friday,” Main Street Greenville and the Coffee Pot are partnering with the Library to provide box lunches for purchase from 11:45 a.m. until 1 p.m.
Just look for the white tent - and listen for the beautiful sounds of the Greenville High School Orchestra who will be playing on the lawn. Please feel free to bring your own lunch or stop by just for the music! Even though there will be tables and chairs provided, blankets and lawn chairs are welcome.
The box lunch costs $7 and consists of a Wrap (cranberry turkey or sweet club); Salad (pasta salad or spinach strawberry salad); Cookie; and a Drink (sweet tea, unsweetened tea, iced coffee, or lemonade). One dollar from every lunch sold will go to Main Street Greenville’s downtownmatter’s initiative. In case of extreme weather, the event will be held at the EUM Youth Center across the street.
The Greenville High School Orchestra will play as part of its fundraising efforts for an upcoming trip to Disney World in Orlando, Florida. The Friends of the Library are making a generous donation in support. Over 50 kids and their adult chaperones will spend December 3-7 in Orlando. Every four years the orchestra makes this trip according to director J.R. Price.
While there the kids will enjoy Disney World but also participate in educational and charitable events. They’ll play at different park venues and attend music clinics with the Disney World musicians. A special invitation was extended to the orchestra from Hard Rock Cafe at Universal Studios to play at the “Luncheon with Santa.” This event is held every year for 100’s of area kids. This will be the first year they’ll have live music.
As J.R. shared, “The orchestra was invited based on its excellent reputation. It’s a wonderful opportunity for the kids to be involved in something really neat. It will be an educational experience on many levels.”
