Good Friday closings announced

GREENVILLE — Most government offices will be taking a three-day weekend in observance of the Good Friday holiday, while at least three Easter egg hunts are scheduled Saturday.

The offices of the Senior Center Resources and Public Transit (formerly Hunt County Committee on Aging/The Connection) will also be closed Friday.
