Chamber honors Greenbrier teachers

GREENBRIER — The eleventh annual Greenbrier Chamber of Commerce Teachers Appreciation Breakfast is this Wednesday, Aug. 14. Special surprises and plenty of fun are in store for the over 400 returning Greenbrier teachers and staff in the Greenbrier School District.

As in years past, a breakfast prepared by the school staff at Greenbrier High School spares no items and will include scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, sweet rolls, bacon and sausage, juice, and fresh fruits. As teachers prepare for school that starts next Monday, they not only enjoy a delicious breakfast; but the camaraderie of renewing old friendships is more than half of their good time together. The floors are shiny throughout the whole district, the windows have all the little fingerprints removed, desks and file cabinets have been moved, registration happened all last week, and all the staff and teachers are ready for a good time compliments of the Chamber.

Expo is the perfect time when businesses enthusiastically thank all the teachers and staff and show them support. There will be Chamber business members who display their wares and give away free pens, key chains, cup holders, literature, and plenty of door prizes. In the past, over forty vendors signed up for this member-only event to meet and greet. New for this year is a vendor to vendor networking event to be held Tuesday evening, Aug. 13, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

This year’s Expo will be held in the old gym next to the cafeteria at Greenbrier High School, 72 Green Valley Drive from 7:30-11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 14, 2013.
