Is it hot enough for you? I know it’s July and I know it’s supposed to be hot but I also know that as I get older, I really hate to sweat. I had no idea I had so many toxins in my body! My mind goes back to being in the tobacco field when I was younger and pulling first primings. I never sweated. Mama and Daddy did. Can I assume this is an “aging” thing? Don’t like it one bit!

The Stokes County Board of Commissioners and the Our Communities Group signed an agreement Monday that the playground and walking trail at Francisco School would remain open to the public until the school is sold. Many concerned residents have volunteered time and money to make the playground an asset to our community. We really have something that we can be proud of and we are so glad that we can make use of it for as long as possible.

The Dunkley Reunion is scheduled for Sunday, July 23, at the Collinstown Stateline Community Building. Bring your favorite covered dish or dishes and enjoy lunch at 1:00pm. The Community Building is located on Collinstown Road in (you guessed it) Collinstown.
