Greenwood will join with the rest of the nation for Thursday’s National Day of Prayer. The event will take place on May 2 at noon on the courthouse lawn. Mayor Del Gabbard will be issuing an official proclamation to publicly recognize this day, themed "Pray for America", on behalf of the citizens of Greenwood.

"This is a special day for our community that unites people of all faiths to join in prayers of faith and prayers of thanksgiving for our country, its leaders and those engaged in the fight for freedom worldwide," Gabbard said.
