    Broad River Electric School Supply Drive

    Where
    811 Hamrick Street [ Map ]
    Description
    Is your church or civic group doing a school supply drive this summer for local children? If so, Broad River Electric Charities would like to help in those efforts.

    Through Operation Round Up® funds, 3,000 backpacks have already been purchased to be distributed to elementary schools throughout our service territory. We would like coordinate with existing supply drives and inspire new ones by offering the cooperative headquarters as a drop-off point. We'll stuff the backpacks with your donations and deliver them to the schools.

    Typical needs for our students include spiral bound notebooks, binders, paper, and pencils. For more information on how you can participate, contact Josh Crotzer at 206-7128 or jcrotzer@broadriverelectric.coop. Deliveries will be made to the school the second week of August, so get your drives going now!



    Broad River Electric Charities is a philanthropic subsidiary of Broad River Electric Cooperative, which serves more than 20,000 members in Cherokee, Spartanburg, Union and Newberry counties in South Carolina and Cleveland, Polk and Rutherford counties in North Carolina. As a non-profit, member-owned utility, Broad River Electric Cooperative strives to empower its members and communities with their ability to improve quality of life.

    Meditative Acts at NOURISH

    Where
    200 East Saint John Street [ Map ]
    Description
    Mental Fitness is proud to announce an exhibition of new works on paper by Greensboro, North Carolina-based artist Jennifer Helen Meanley at our NOURISH arts space in Spartanburg.

    Meditative Acts will open to the public Thursday, July 16 from 5-8 pm in conjunction with the Spartanburg Art Walk at the Chapman Cultural Center. This exhibition marks the first in an ongoing series of exhibitions to take place at NOURISH, curated by Jenny Bonner, NOURISH Program Director.

    Meanley is an Associate Professor of Painting at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She holds an MFA from Indiana University, a BFA from the University of New Hampshire, and a BA in English Literature from Mount Holyoke College. Recent exhibitions include Waters Upon the Earth at Beaux-Arts des Amériques in Montreal, Canada and Far Away, The Meadow, at the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art in Winston- Salem, NC (Curated by Steven Matijicio.)

    Stemming from narrative accounts composed over a series of days, Meanley's text-based collages evade classification as story or poem, presenting us with a visual compilation of words and their fragments. Revisiting and reassembling her own private writings, through omission, repetition, and visual spacing, the product of repeated sessions of free-writing is transformed into a conglomerate of ideas, meanings, and sounds. The result is a striking portrait of the busyness and constant shifting of our own meditations, and an enchanting look at the mind of Meanley herself.

    Meditative Acts will be on view at NOURISH in the Chapman Cultural Center July 16-Aug. 14, 2015, with free admission. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

    Competition Dining Series Semifinal Dinner Battle

    Where
    22 Graves Drive [ Map ]
    Description
    Competition Dining Series, a single-elimination tournament highlighting the best of the state's food, agriculture and culinary talent, is in the semifinal round for the Greenville series. At stake – one chef being named regional champion and moving on to the final championship battles at the end of the year.

    The best part is YOU can be the judge! Local residents can get in on the action, serving as dinner guests at the interactive events. At each dinner, guests are served a blind six-course meal without knowing which chef prepared each course. Alongside culinary and media judges, diners rate dishes using an interactive app, ultimately determining who moves on to the next round and who goes home.

    Semifinal Bracket:
    • Monday, August 31 Dinner: August 19 winner versus August 25 winner
    • Tuesday, September 1 Dinner: August 24 winner versus August 26 winner

    Visit www.competitiondining.com to see additional event dates and restaurants, and to purchase tickets.


    Competition Dining is unlike any other dinner experience in the country. All Greenville events are held at Larkin's Sawmill located at 22 Graves Dr. Tickets to attend a battle range from $55 to $75 each, excluding beverage, tax and service fee. Tickets must be purchased by midnight the day before a battle, but are selling out fast.
