Summer 2024 in Mocksville

2024-06-13T12:08:12-04:00

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 [...]

Good to Great

2024-03-27T10:06:27-04:00

Bestselling author Jim Collins wrote, “Good is the enemy of great.” He meant that most people and organizations are satisfied with being good at what they do and believe that there is nothing else they need to do. That is not the case with the Town of Mocksville in general and the Mocksville Fire Department in particular. Chief Frank Carter will tell you that “Constant Improvement” is his hashtag. Chief Carter has been a firefighter in Mocksville since 1988 and has served as Chief since 2003. Over the last decade especially he has worked tirelessly, but quietly, improving the department for [...]

Spring is Here!

2024-03-27T10:06:34-04:00

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 [...]
