On Monday, July 4th, 2011, under a large shaded portico at 1 Pine Knoll Drive, Greenville, sweet tea was poured for scores of local law enforcement and firefighters from all over Greenville County, including County Sheriff, City Police and EMS workers as they enjoyed a professionally prepared southern barbeque complete with ribs, chicken, chopped barbeque and all the trimmings. Greenville's First Responders mingled with Woodlawn's funeral directors, staffers and cemetery associates at the special Independence Day event held in their honor. "We simply wanted to say thank you to these men and women for what they do
every day." said A. Chip Howard, Manager and Senior Director of Woodlawn Funeral Home. Woodlawn, a local Dignity Memorial Provider, has been host to multiple community events and veteran's related ceremonies over the years.
