Town Manager’s Corner

The Christmas season is upon us and 2017 is drawing to a close. This truly is the most wonderful time of the year. This season is both a time of rejoicing and reflection. 2017 has brought lots of new assets to our town, and I am thankful for the vision and acumen, and devotion of the Mayor and Town Board of Commissioners. I am also thankful for staff. They have all been working very hard serving the Town, and they continue to impress me daily. It continues to be a gift and a blessing to live and serve here in Mocksville, and the greatest reward to me as the Town Manager is working with the great people that I work with and the great people that live here.

Our efforts to further improve Mocksville continue. Main Street Park construction is well underway, and we hope to reach completion before year’s end. With the Oak trees replanting in Court Square, we hope to see mast arm traffic signals installed in early 2018. The Town Board recently approved the purchase of a new leaf removal machine as we have had mechanical issues with all of our existing equipment. As we work to complete repairs, and we use our new machine, please allow us to catch up on removing leaves that have continually fallen while equipment was out of service.

As we enjoy Christmas, New Years, and this wintery season, I hope that you all have precious time with family and friends dear to you. Gifts under the tree on Christmas morning bring fun and excitement. Perhaps the very best of gifts for us to have are peace, love, joy, health, freedom, and fellowship. I hope you all experience this in abundance throughout this winter and throughout 2018. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

With Warm Wishes,

Marcus Abernethy

Mocksville Town Manager

Delighting the Crowds at the Mocksville Bed Races

“Twas the Night Before Bed Race” and all through the town,
were a series of teams wishing the flag would go down;
More rapid than eagles the race beds they came,
And the crowds whistled, and shouted, and called them by name:
Now Manna Movers! Now Snoozers! Now WXII!
On Magic Elves! On Skills USA! On Flash CW! On Premier Reindeer!

The town of Mocksville raced into the Christmas season on November 17th with the 6th Annual “Twas the Night Before” Bed Race as 18 race teams made the mad dash down Main Street.

2017 Mocksville Bed Races
2017 Mocksville Bed Races!
Thank you to Ed Simmons for the awesome photos!

Mocksville Mayor Will Marklin kicked off the night mentioning the construction of the park and new facilities in town. The Race saw another good turnout this year with the streets full of families, fun and holiday spirit. Volunteers passed out noisemakers and t-shirts and between races the DJ had folks dancing in the streets. All the racing and dancing made people hungry enough that both food trucks in attendance, Michael Burton’s Smoke Wagon and the Davie High Band Boosters, completely sold out of food.

The event was covered by two news stations, WXII 12 and affiliate CW 20, whose racing teams faced off in the first race of the night. Both stations, hopeful to win it all, stacked their racing teams with track stars from the Davie War Eagles cross country track team. However, this year’s competition was stiff and the secret to winning may have been to have “missile” in the team name.

$600 in Cash Prizes at Stake!
The fastest team, Cathy Riddle Missile,  took home a cool $200 in cash, while the runner-up, Krazy Legs Missile, collected $125. Skills USA, the third-place finisher, rolled away with $75. Yesterday’s Kids, the only senior team to enter this year’s race, handily won the $100 prize for the fastest senior team. Krazy Legs Missile, the 2nd place team also won the $50 prize for being the Most Outrageous.  A Total Package prize of $50 went to the Surf USA team 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 Event Organizer Denise Hendrix and her daughter Jordan who manages the Facebook page, Mike West and the Davie Public Works for lights, equipment, and course setup, volunteers from the Davie County Early College, Trailers of the East Coast for the event trailer (and for bringing 2 teamsagain this year), and the Mocksville Police Department.
