Send us your Black Friday photos!

The holiday season is upon us, but while many of us are enjoying our Thanksgiving days off by sleeping in and relaxing, there are some that brave the cold weather and dark skies among long lines and anxious attitudes in hopes of getting their hands on the best deals of the year.

If you're one of those brave Black Friday shoppers, we would like hear from you. Please send us you photos along with your name, location, and a brief comment about your experience to MyTown@wzzm13.com for our My Town Black Friday photo gallery to be published early next week.

Until then, good luck and safe shopping!!

We’re All Lovin’ The Meat Shack in Greenville

We’re All Lovin’ The Meat Shack in Greenville

Jeff and Suzy Raven opened The Meat Shack's doors on March 4, 2011.  For my mother, who had lived in Bay City for 65 years before moving to Greenville, the store couldn’t have possibly opened its doors fast enough.  Mom was used to local meat markets, and she’d still make the two hour hike to Jack’s Market in Bay City if it hadn’t been for the arrival of “the shack.”

Mom, like most Greenville residents who have experienced The Meat Shack, are completely lovin’ everything this place has to offer.  My husband is a huge fan of their beef jerky, and mom cannot get enough of their homemade sausages and fresh meat.  In addition to having a wide range of meat available, there is also a deli inside that offers hot food and sandwiches (and lots more).

Come and Meet Chris from Chef’s Hand Specialties—Greenville’s Personal Chef

I remember the conversation clearly on Facebook.  “Hey, Chef Chris is back.”  A celebration erupted online.  I had no idea who Chris was and why he apparently had a following.  I needed to know more.

“He’s our favorite food man, of course,” a variety of Greenvillites responded with sheer enthusiasm.  Who?  What?  Where?  I had so many questions.  What have I been missing?

From the Greenville Chamber of Commerce:
Greenville, MI–
On April 30th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Greenville Public Safety and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public another opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.  Bring your medications for disposal to the Public Safety lobby at 415 S. Lafayette Street, on the southwest corner of M-57 and M-91 in Greenville.  The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

Last September, Americans turned in 242,000 pounds—121 tons—of prescription drugs at nearly 4,100 sites operated by the DEA and more than 3,000 state and local law enforcement partners.
