It is March, which means it is GHIO month! Can you believe we are only 18 days away–I know. I know. Last week we sent out the announcements so they should be hitting mail boxes this week. Make sure you send in your reservations–the deadline is March 15! Plus, we are expecting a huge crowd and there is limited table seating solet us know. Have questions? Just call 662.332.2246.

The Greenville Arts Council will celebrate 30 years at Greenville Honors Its Own 2013 on Friday, March 22, 2013 at 6:30 PM. Master of Ceremonies will be WXVT Woodrow Wilkins.  For information about reservations and sponsorship visit our GHIO sponsorship page.
