Duke Family Performance Hall – Davidson College

Truvy Jones runs a successful beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies in the neighborhood have a standing Saturday appointment. Truvy styles the hair of rich, sick, poor, girlish, and cranky women alike. When Shelby, the prettiest girl in town, gets engaged, the excitement of her wedding quickly turns to concern as she faces a risky pregnancy and a myriad of health complications. As the women of Chinquapin make their ways over life’s many hurdles together, they find comfort (and a good deal of playful teasing) in one another.

Performances run July 19-29. Visit the Davidson Community Players website for more information and tickets.

The Market is a lively gathering place for meeting friends and for learning about food, agriculture and nutrition. Growers and producers are on hand to answer your questions, from “How was this grown?” to questions about how to prepare and preserve all types of foods. We are located next to the Davidson Town Hall between Main & Jackson Streets. Parking is available on Main Street, Town Hall Lot, Police Department Lot, and at Davidson Presbyterian Church lot at the corner of Depot & Jackson Streets.

 

Walk With A Doc

Walk with A Doc is a national program to encourage healthy regular physical activity in people of all ages, to help reverse the consequences of a sedentary lifestyle in order to improve the health and well-being of those who would participate. Walking for as little as 30 minutes a day can have enormous health benefits. Walking was recently recognized by the Surgeon General of the United States as one of the single most important things we can do for our health. Will you join us in making health and happiness accessible to all? Bring the whole family and the dog but just come and join your fellow citizens in improving the health of our community.
