Life in Our Community April–June, 2021


he staff of The Greeneville Sun is pleased to bring you the first of four Around The Town magazines we will publish in 2021. “Around The Town” combines three months of events and goings-on in and around our communities. The Sun staff visited friends and neighbors throughout Greene County, asking folks if we could take a picture of them doing normal everyday things they do, that make our communities such great places to live. We were overwhelmed by so many warm and welcoming people who were excited about the opportunity of sharing what they do in their everyday lives, creating smiling faces and happy places. We are most grateful to our advertisers that support Around The Town. Please visit these businesses and say “Thank You.” Without them, and all of us just being ourselves, doing what we do, Around The Town would not be possible. We invite you to sit back and browse this latest edition of Around The Town. You might see someone you know, a family member or a familiar place. At the top of our list is a request to hear from you. Tell us what you think. Offer us your ideas and send us information about events and special moments that we can share. Our goal is to deliver more happy news each quarter, featuring our friends and neighbors throughout Greene County. Be looking for our next edition of “Around The Town” coming in September. From all the staff at The Greeneville Sun, we hope you enjoy Around The Town.
