Ready, Set, Social Distancing in Davidson: Week 21

by | Aug 6, 2020 | News

The Town purchased new tables and umbrellas that allow for out door dining to allow people to maintain social distancing.


We are continuing to put together a modified calendar of events known as: “Ready, Set. . . Social Distancing in Davidson.” While we are still in Phase 2 of re-opening – we wanted to try to make this article more user-friendly for our readers. We will try to find and document online/virtual events and list them here in upcoming weeks. The other items that we had been including in previous editions have been broken out into individual articles: “Art in Your Inbox,” “Virtual Vacations,” and a dedicated article “This Week at the Davidson Farmers Market.”
