Backhoe Rodeo

A Backhoe Rodeo was held in downtown Greenville to test competitor’s ability to precisely control digging machines in a variety of movement and placement tasks. Here, the goal is to drop the pin into each cone in the minimum time. It’s harder than it looks when the pin is swinging at the end of the chain!

Brunch for a Cause

After seeing the devastation and flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey in Texas, several restaurant and business owners quickly organized a massive benefit brunch – Brunch for a Cause. A section of Main Street was closed to make room for all the tables and guests.

Some of the restaurants closed and volunteered all their employees to help with the brunch operations. Anyone could enter for a donation, and over $32,000 was raised for the Red Cross.

A fantastic buffet spread, with goodies from 17 restaurants
