Welcome to our newly elected board members!

Johnny Frye, Jenny Stevenson, and Carl Lambert were sworn into office at our December 4th meeting. They will join Justin Draughn and Rob Taylor in representing the citizens of Mocksville as we move forward into 2022. Thank you for your willingness to serve.

I had the opportunity to have coffee this week at The Factory in downtown Mocksville with a new town resident. He could not believe all of the activity in our small town during the holiday season.  He commented on the number of folks on North Main Street on Halloween, the excitement at the bed races and the crowd that came out for the Mocksville Christmas Parade. 

I appreciate the hard work all of the downtown merchants put into making things look so festive at Christmas and I encourage all of our town and county residents to shop local this holiday season.  Having a vibrant downtown does not come by accident.  I would like to recognize the efforts of Tami Langdon  who oversees the Mocksville Community Development Department. A special thanks to Brian Moore and his crew at the Public Works Department for keeping our streets clean, our water running, and our buildings lit during Christmas. Thank you to Rustin Harpe and the Parks Department for getting our leaves picked up, keeping the downtown park looking so nice, and for making Rich Park our county’s favorite park to visit. 

Take a break from the busy holiday season by coming downtown and just sitting on a bench or grabbing a bite at one of our local restaurants.  The year 2021 will soon be gone. Take a moment to think about all of the experiences you’ve had during this past year.  And remember that as you start to prepare for 2022, any time you spend in downtown Mocksville is always “Time Well Spent”.

Mayor Will Marklin
