Town Manager’s Corner

Greetings from Mocksville Town Hall! As spring greets us with warmer weather, I hope you will take advantage of all the great things happening every day and events to get connected and involved with. The Town will hold its annual Arbor Day Ceremony on Friday April 20th at 11:00 AM in the new Main Street Park. Tree planting and dedication will be conducted shortly after. Most of the landscaping will be performed by Town staff, Mocksville Elementary School students, the Mocksville Girl Scout troop, and other volunteers, with additional support from the NC Cooperative Extension Office. We will have many other events as warm weather ensues:

  • The Mocksville Farmer’s Market will be at Junker’s Mill every Wednesday, from 3:00 PM until 6:00 PM, starting May 2nd, and ending October 24th, 2018. The Harvest Table Day Celebration will be November 7th, starting at 3:00 PM to highlight crops and foods for the upcoming holidays.
  • The Piedmont C.A.R.S. Association will host Summer Cruise-ins, April through September, on the first and third Mondays of each month. Come downtown and enjoy some classic cars and all that downtown has to offer.
  • The Daniel Boone Family Festival will begin at 10:00 AM on Saturday, May 5th in Historic Downtown Mocksville. Come enjoy the craft vendors, live music, and historic reenactors.
  • Summer Beach Days and Concerts on the Square begin in June and we look forward to seeing all of you in your lawn chairs!

The specific dates, and times, and additional information on these events are included in this issue of the City Page. We will have more events to come, and plan to organize several at the New Main Street Park.

It continues to be an honor to serve the citizens of Mocksville I would like to issue a special thanks to the Mayor and the Town Board for their vision in our community. The Town Board’s leadership is going to be a great benefit to the Town for years to come. I would also like to thank staff for all the hard work they perform on a daily basis in the service of our citizens. As the Town Manager, I am committed to serving the residents of our community, and I will make a focused effort to keep you updated on things that affect you as a citizen. Maintaining an open dialogue between residents and the Town is an important goal. Please call Town Hall for any questions or concerns you may have. Mocksville is a very special Town and I look forward to doing my part to continue to make Mocksville a place where everyone wants to be, and a place where time is Time Well Spent.

With Warm Wishes,
Marcus Abernethy
Mocksville Town Manager
