Mark your calendars and don’t miss Greenville’s Brand New Jewish Film Festival Kick Off

We are very excited to announce The Greenville Jewish Film Festival to Greenville. Last year, Rock in the Red Zone was a huge success.

The mission of the International Men’s Group (IMG) is to welcome men of all nationalities to experience a world of exciting activities. Members of the IMG get a chance to expand their social life while doing what they enjoy.  International Men’s Group activities are free to join with an Upstate International membership.

Join today, and start exploring!  We are meeting at Coffee Underground at 9:00am on Saturday mornings, every other week from September through April, to discuss international events, international travel and to network.  All nationalities are welcome, whether you are born and raised in SC or an expat from far away, having an interest in the world around us is all that we ask.
