A Note from Mayor Marklin

Greetings from Town Hall! Although I have enjoyed a very warm summer, I am looking forward to the cooler temperatures that fall brings. In addition to the colorful foliage and sights and sounds of Davie High football games, I also wanted to make you aware of some community
events which offer chances for fun and fellowship.

The Oaks Festival is scheduled for October 14th and will hopefully be accompanied by four newly-planted oak trees. Our public works department is working hard to make the necessary improvements to the square so the trees can take root this fall. Come out and celebrate the new additions to our iconic town square! Just keep in mind that they will have to come down in 80 to 100 years. Sorry, I don’t make the rules.

The Downtown Bed Race will be on November 17th this year, which will coincide with our first lighting of the new oaks this evening. The Mocksville Christmas Parade is scheduled for the following day, November 18th. Please make plans to attend this fabulous community weekend this year. Last year’s race was packed, and folks had the opportunity to dance in the square between races. If you would like more information on how to enter the race, please contact Tami Langdon at Town Hall at 336-753-6705.Winterfest at Junker’s Mill is on the calendar for December 2nd. Bring the family out and

Winterfest at Junker’s Mill is on the calendar for December 2nd. Bring the family out and enjoy all the activities planned for this annual event. Horse and buggy rides through the town are scheduled for December 9th.I sincerely hope that each and every one of you will make time to enjoy these fun-filled events.

I sincerely hope that each and every one of you will make time to enjoy these fun-filled events with your friends and neighbors. On a different note, I wanted to thank you for being patient with us throughout the summer as waterline construction took place in town. We are
wrapping up projects and hope to have everything completed by the end of the year. Municipal elections will be held in November for Bermuda Run, Cooleemee, and Mocksville. Please take advantage of your civic duty to vote and elect public officials that represent your views in the town in which you live.

William J. Marklin, III, Mayor
