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.

Most State of Texas and all Hunt County and City of Greenville offices, including the W. Walworth Harrison Public Library, will be closed Friday.

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

The Greenville Independent School District will be closed Friday for a bad weather day.

The U.S. Postal Service and banks will be open, as Good Friday is not considered a federal holiday.
