Roger Hypes will be sharing some human interest stories of people, events, and places of our Locust community.

 

One of the definitions of community is the area itself; people with common interests living in a particular area. The Remember When… column should help us better understand the history, people and happenings of Locust, the place we call home.

 

Remember When…will help us all to take the time out of our busyness to reflect, reminisce, think back, recollect, go over in the memory and hopefully, be able to share a smile of a memory to make us better appreciate the present.  Take a deep breath, lay in the grass and look up in the sky of the cloud shapes, or the stars at night.

 

I would ask that if you have an event, a crossroads, a person that has helped create the history of Locust, get in touch with Roger Hypes (rogerhypes234@gmail.com.   “Remember When…” will not be in every week update of Locust Patch, but when stories are available and to give the story the value it deserves.  Be thinking as I feel this will be a good way for all of us to appreciate what we have, and where we live.

    The West Stanly Business Association is a group of local business owners who meet on the first and third Wednesday, of every month at 12 noon until 1:00 pm at Stanly Community College in the Honeycutt Room. Lunch is $5.00 per person, annual dues are $35.00 per company. Our main focus is to discuss the issues in the community related to local business: marketing ideas and strategies, small business issues, community development issues and the like. Most meetings involve a guest speaker to discuss pertinent issues. We welcome all business owners in and around Locust, Oakboro, Red Cross and Stanfield. Business owners in Midland are also welcome to join us as we share services even though we are in different counties. This is an open forum for the exchange of ideas related to local business. So come on down and join in. We just might be what you have been waiting for!
    For more information, please feel free to contact Mike Harwood at the Bank of Stanly
