Celebrating America's Heroes

The pandemic has expanded the notion of what it means to be a hero–there are so many heroes among us. Join TCMU-Greenville in celebrating the MANY American heroes that serve and support the Greenville community, and country, every single day! This family-friendly event will recognize and celebrate the community’s doctors and nurses, armed forces, Purple Heart recipients, first responders, grocery store workers and many others.

Families can:

  • Participate in fun patriotic crafts!

  • And learn from real-life community heroes and more!
