Hi Dr. Robert,

I’ll be happy to share more information with Greenwood Calendar about our new Greenwood, South Carolina bakery-café as it becomes available. Although the exact address is still to be determined, this bakery-cafe will be located off Highway 72 in zip code 29649. It is scheduled to open in late July.

We want your visit to Panera Bread to be warm and relaxing with friendly service and deliciously handcrafted food you can enjoy and feel good about. I hope you’ll have an opportunity to visit us again soon and give us another chance to share the Panera warmth.

Tribute song to the Lander Bearcats

A few years ago, some friend and I got together to pay tribute to the Lander Bearcats. Paul Crutcher, Chelsey Ashford, Chandler Puckett, Sam Thomas and I wanted to let the Bearcats know how much we supported them. So we wrote a song, practiced one afternoon, and performed it at Homecoming. We had a blast.

Now with the Lady Bearcats 15-3 and the Men 13-3, I think it’s time to resurrect our tribute.

Hope you like it. . .
