GREENBRIER — The Greenbrier football team will begin a community Tailgate Party/Literacy Night Friday when the players and coaches will read to students that afternoon at Eastside Elementary.

The tailgate party will be from 5-7 p.m. with free food, literacy contests for families, face-painting and poster-making before the Panthers’ game with Huntsville at John Hawks Memorial Field at Don Jones Stadium.

Admission to the tailgate is a new or gently used children’s book that will be donated to the Greenbrier Bookcase Project. Those who donate will be entered in a drawing for an Ipad to be conducted at halftime.

First Security Bank and Greenbrier Family Chiropractic are sponsoring the event along with Eastside Elementary.
