Spring Arrived in Davidson Just in Time for a Special Town Day
From the looks of the weather last weekend, spring has made it to Davidson!
People all over town were outdoors basking in the sunshine, and helping with a variety of civic chores organized by the town’s Parks & Recreation Department for a special Town Day. Their assignments included lakeshore and greenway cleanup, and spreading mulch to nourish trees in public parks. A large group reported for duty at the future Beaty Park to clear invasive plants and underbrush, and others tilled the soil at the community garden.
Cyclists plyed the suburban roads, and fans of the great American pastime played baseball at McEver Field. A scout troop showed off an exhibition of pollinators where visitors could learn to make “bee hotels.”
All-in-all, it was a great day to be a Davidsonian.
NewsOfDavidson photographer Bill Giduz captured some of the activities, and shares his pictures with readers on the front page slider and in Photos.
