Summer 2024 in Mocksville


This is certainly not a summer for being bored in Mocksville. There are so many things going on over the next few months that you would have to work hard to have a moment of boredom. The Davie Community Park kicked off their concert series last Saturday with Diamond Rio. Thenumber of cars in the parking lot reminded me of the football playoff games Davie hosted several years back. For those who didn’t want to attend the large concert, there were two options downtown: live music on the square and at The Station. The weather was beautiful, and all the live [...]

Spring is Here!


Spring is here! The Popsicle Run and Shamrock 5k are behind us, so now we can ease into warmer weather. I would have liked to see a bit more snow over the winter months but am glad that we didn’t have to deal with icy roads and school closings that would push the end of the school year further into the summer months. We actually had a fairly mild winter. Be sure to keep a close eye on the calendar for all the events happening over the next several months. There are concerts, festivals, movies in the park, and many other [...]

2023 In Review


Where has the year gone? It is almost 2024! Is it just me, or does it feel like time seems to go by faster as we get older? Looking back over 2023…Mocksville has had a great year. We partnered with Davie County, Bermuda Run, and Cooleemee in late 2022 to develop an application for All America. We were selected as a finalist in March 2023 and competed in Denver, Colorado in June. Our team brought home one of only 10 All America designations awarded. Everyone in Davie County can be proud of this achievement! The long-awaited roundabout at Miller’s Restaurant was [...]

Mocksville Road Projects


Have you noticed an increase in road projects over the last several months? This is the time of year when paving happens. Paving tends to do better when it goes down in the hot summer months; it doesn’t adhere as well when it is cold outside. Municipalities, along with the NC Department of Transportation, make plans throughout the year for projects to happen during a small window of opportunity each calendar year. The Town of Mocksville receives Powell Bill funding, which comes from the gas tax each of us pays when we fill our tanks, to pave streets within the city [...]

Mayor Marklin- All-America Livestream


I had the opportunity to watch the live stream of the All-American City competition today. Davie County was one of 20 other communities that sent a delegation to Denver, Colorado, this weekend to compete for the title of “All-American City”. I would have liked to be a part of the delegation, but my daughter’s graduation from Davie High trumped me going to Denver. I watched the group of adults and students talk about youth engagement here in our county and beamed with pride at hearing the talking points brought to life by our young people. Even if we hadn’t won, the [...]

Message From the Mayor – Help Control the Cost of Recycling by Following the Rules


I had the opportunity to hear a representative from Republic Waste speak at Rotary last week. The theme for Rotary in March is “Water and Sanitation”. Johnny Lambert gave us an update on Davie County Utilities and Chuck Willis, the engineer for the Town of Mocksville, has updated us regarding what is going on with the infrastructure in Mocksville. After the presentation by Tom Krasenko with Republic Waste, I wanted to pass along some information on recycling we all need to be aware of. When it comes to recycling, everyone has a part to play. When we work together we can [...]

2023 Message from Mayor Marklin


What a great Christmas parade in downtown Mocksville! The theme this year was “Rock Around the Clock”. There were several floats with folks in rocking chairs, there were at least two Elvis sightings and lots of music could be heard throughout the parade route. If you happened to attend the parade, you may have noticed the Town of Mocksville sponsored a float for the first time (that I can remember). Normally, some of the town officials ride in old cars and wave as they pass the crowds lining our streets. This year we loaded up an old VW bus on a [...]

Have You Been to Town Lately?


Have you been to town lately? I’m not talking about Winston Salem or Salisbury - I am referring to beautiful downtown Mocksville. There are so many things going on this summer in town. Tami Langdon and the Downtown Merchants Group have put together a fabulous list of activities and events that will keep you as busy and engaged as you want to be. There will be movies shown in the evening at the Main Street Park, a farmers market every Wednesday in the former Mocksville Police Department parking lot, along with several concerts on the square. Tami has planned a “Wacky [...]

Mayor Marklin – 2021 End of Year Message


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 [...]

A Message from Mayor Marklin – Fall is Finally Here


  Fall is finally here! With cooler weather upon us, it is time to get out and enjoy some of the events going on in and around our town.  Last weekend you could have chosen between the Platters tribute band at the Brock, the music of Soundcraft at the Masonic Picnic, Cassette Rewind playing at the Davie Community Park, or just dining out at one of our restaurants here in town. On top of all of that, there are football games, soccer matches, tennis matches, and all kinds of sporting events going on for you to attend in and around the [...]
