Elkin's Great Places in North Carolina award

During the Yadkin Valley WIne Festival, Elkin received their award from the American Planning Association, North Carolina Chapter, for the 2013 Great Places in North Carolina.  Elkin's award was for "Great Place in the Making" for its historical Main Street and all of the exciting things going on with the trails, festivals and holiday celebrations, and future plans for the downtown.

Here, Ben Hitchings gives Mayor Lestine Hutchens the award. To the right, Lloyd Payne, the Town Manager looks on.

Lloyd Payne, Kate Pearce (from the Great Places initiative), Mayor Hutchens and Ben Hitchings pose after the ceremony. We were honored to have them attend the festival this weekend and show them around the downtown. We hope to have many new projects completed in the next year or two...so keep an eye on the downtown and Main Street!
