If we're allowed to pick a favorite, this would be it! The Cancer Association of Spartanburg and Cherokee Counties has been around almost as long as cancer has! They're an amazing local organization that have pooled generous time and talent in our communities to provide needed resources to a special population. Please take the time to explore their website by clicking on the above link.

Good health begins with good eating! We are so fortunate in Spartanburg to have this amazing Hub City Farmers' Market. You absolutely owe it to yourself to check it out and see what all the hub-bub is about!

Did you know there are 11 library locations in Spartanburg County? No matter which corner you live, you can check out the latest book, audio book, read a newspaper or your favorite magazine, or just catch up with a neighbor or friend!

Ok, so this is shameless self-promotion, but along with this website, we've created a FB page to enlighten, entertain and inform.
