Greenville Goes Blue
Inaugural Greenville County Law Enforcement Appreciation Week set for May 16-20
To celebrate and thank Greenville County law enforcement personnel for their service, as well as bring awareness, the week of May 16-20 will now be known as Greenville County Law Enforcement Appreciation Week.
Plans have been in the making for the inaugural weeklong celebration and for May 20 to be designated as Greenville County-Wide Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. May 20 will also be promoted as “Go Blue Greenville” and citizens are encouraged to dress in blue to show their support, said Seabrook Marchant, president of Marchant Company Real Estate.
The Marchant Company held an appreciation breakfast last year at Tommy’s Ham House and due to such a positive response, the company decided to expand efforts and establish the Greenville County Law Enforcement Appreciation Week, Marchant said.
“This is not a knee-jerk reaction,” he said. “This is actually something we’ve been working on for quite some time.”
