Residents meet $10,000 goal in Griffith Street Hotel fight
That opposition was on display with a "community yard sale" held Saturday morning at 341 Griffith Street. The sale at the home of Evelyn Carr bought together people from across town who donated items for sale, their time, and money to bring this effort over the finish line.
Ms Carr (pictured bottom left at Saturday's event) has long been a stalwart voice at Davidson Town Hall, regularly speaking out on issues including safety for children walking to school along Griffith Street.
Prior to the event this weekend, she was interviewed by WSOC's Joe Bruno on why she was hosting the yard sale. See that coverage here.
Having people in the community willing to "fight" to keep Davidson the town it is is one of the things that makes the town special.
