Pears on the Downtown Greenway!

Posted on

If you missed the strawberries in May, there are now pears growing on the trees at Meeting Place at Tradition Cornerstone! Stop by and pick a pear, but please pick just one so others may enjoy them too. Meeting Place is located at the corner of Smith and Prescott Streets in downtown Greensboro.  Click here for a map.
