2018 Commemorative Christmas Ornament – Available Now!

Christmas is quickly approaching, and the 2018 Davie County Commemorative Christmas ornament would make a perfect addition to your tree as well as become a treasured gift for your Davie County family and friends.

This year’s ornament returns to the original glass ball design and features the Kurfees Pure Oil Company, now Sadie’s Shoppe, which is located at 185 N. Salisbury St.

 

This Davie County landmark has served in many capacities since Dr. R.P. Anderson built it as a service station, one of the oldest in Mocksville, in 1920. He sold it to Pure Oil Company in 1931. Albert Boger became a partner in the station with Grady Ward in 1946, operating as B & W Service. Sam Howard later bought Ward’s share of the business and the station operated as Boger & Howard. The station became Boger Pure Service in 1954. Albert Denton Boger purchased the property from the Pure Oil Company in 1965 and the Boger brothers expanded the business into a fuel oil distribution company. The building functioned as a gas station until the late 1990s.

Since then, the building has housed a series of galleries and shops including the Woodworks Gallery, The Station on Main Street, Scarlett’s Unique Boutique, and now Sadie’s Shoppe.

Ornaments may be purchased for $8.00 at Bank of the Ozarks, BB&T, Foster Drug Company, Daniel Furniture, Downtown Merchants, Mocksville Town Hall, and the Davie County Chamber of Commerce. Checks are accepted and should be made out to Town of Mocksville.

Kurfees Pure Oil Company is the 28th in a series of annual ornaments commemorating a landmark, a tradition, or a memory of Davie County. The series began in 1991 with a glass ball ornament depicting the Davie County Courthouse. Local artists created each of the designs and also sold prints. The 2012 Celebration of Trees ornament marked the transition from glass to pewter.

2018 Bed Races Wrap-Up ~ Ingersoll Rand Best Overall ~ Trailers of the East Coast Fastest and Most Outrageous

The town of Mocksville raced into the Christmas season on November 16th with the 7th Annual “Twas the Night Before” Bed Race as 23 race teams made the mad dash down Main Street.

2018 Bed Race Photos by Ed Simmons
2018 Mocksville Bed Races
Thank you to Ed Simmons for the awesome photos!

The race saw another good turnout this year with the streets full of families, fun and holiday spirit. Race Announcer Tonia Cornett kept the crowd cheering while DJ Tim Elmore had folks dancing in the streets.

The event was covered by WXII 12 whose racing teams faced off in the first race of the night. Both teams, hopeful to win it all, stacked their racing teams with track stars from the Davie War Eagles cross country track team but to no avail. Neither team placed in the top three to win a prize.

$500 in Cash Prizes at Stake!
The fastest team, the Super Truckers from Trailers of the East Coast, took home a cool $200 in cash, while the runner-up, Camp Manna Movers, collected $125. Krazy Legs Missile, the third-place finisher, rolled away with $75. Horsin’ Around from Trailers of the East Coast won the $50 prize for being the Most Outrageous.  A Total Package prize of $50 went to Ingersoll Rand for having the best overall appearance and combination of bed decoration, message, and costumes.

Special Thanks
Tami Langdon, Mocksville’s community development coordinator, is grateful to everyone who pitched in to make the event a great success. “Kudos and thanks to the Bed Race Committee of Denise Hendrix, Jordan Hendrix and Trevor Walterman for all of their hard work; Mocksville Public Works and Parks & Grounds for lights, equipment, and course setup; the DHS Jr. Civitans for their phenomenal job controlling the course’s traffic; Trailers of the East Coast for the event trailer (and for bringing two teams again this year); and the Mocksville Police Department.”

She welcomes anyone interested in volunteering on the committee next year.
