Coffee and Conversation
Aug, 01 2017 2pm - 4pm

Singles and singles again age 55 plus years who would enjoy good conversation with other folks over a cup of coffee, this is for you! It will be an enjoyable time as we gather for Coffee and Conversation. In addition to weekly meetings, we enjoy outings for meals and other excursions! We meet every Tuesday from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. in the education building at Cayce United Methodist Church, 1600 12th Street, Cayce, SC 29033. Enter the church parking lot located behind the church off Naples Avenue. While Cayce UMC has generously donated the meeting space, this program is not affiliated with the church. These gatherings are social in nature. No solicitation regarding services or products will be made. Read More

Honoring Old Glory Flag Retirement Program
Aug, 02 2017 12am

Our flag, like each of us, has a life span. It is exceedingly important that when an American flag becomes worn and tattered, or is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, it should be decommissioned with solemnity and respect. Thompson Funeral Homes is pleased to partner with the Boy Scouts of America to retire American flags in a dignified way through the “Honoring Old Glory Flag Retirement Program.” Community members who wish to donate their tattered, torn or faded American flag(s) to the "Honoring Old Glory" Flag Retirement Program can bring their flag(s) to any one of the Thompson Funeral Homes locations listed below. The flag(s) will be registered for the program and great care will be taken to ensure that “Old Glory” is decommissioned honorably. Thompson Funeral Home/Lexington 4720 Augusta Road Lexington SC 29073 803-996-1023 Thompson Funeral Home/West Columbia 200 State Street West Columbia SC 29169 803-791-0650 Thompson Funeral Home at Greenlawn Memorial Park 845 Leesburg Road Columbia SC 29209 803-776-1092 Read More

27th Annual Candlelight Remembrance Service and Luminary Display
Dec, 02 2017 5:30pm - 6:30pm

We invite you to our 27th annual Candlelight Remembrance Service. Join us as we witness the beautiful transformation of Greenlawn Memorial Park into a warm and glowing tribute to the memories of the family and friends who have passed before us. Saturday, December 2, 2017 5:30 p.m. The Candlelight Remembrance Service will be held in the chapel of the funeral home and the Luminary Display will be throughout the memorial park. With assistance of community volunteers, over 3,000 luminaries will be placed throughout the park. The candles will be lit as dusk falls and the Candlelight Remembrance Service begins in the funeral home chapel. You are welcome to invite family members and friends to participate in this special time of remembrance and reflection. As in the past, we will be creating a Remembrance Photo Memorial Tribute to be shown during the Remembrance Service. If you wish to have your loved one’s photo appear in this video memorial, please submit one (1) photo to the funeral home by November 27th. Photos can be picked up any time following the service and will be kept on file at Greenlawn if not retrieved. To RSVP, or for more information, please call 803-776-1092 Read More
