Mount Gilead 2010 Summer Park Program

Reserve your spot early! Summer vacation is almost here and the Mt. Gilead Recreation Commission is offering a summer park program at Stanback Park and Pool. Cathy Haithcock will be the director of the Park Program and has many fun and educational activities planned for the six-week program. Adults and high school/college counselors who are CPR/First Aid trained and certified by the National Red Cross supervise all activities.

The program runs June 21-Aug. 6. It is for children who have completed kindergarten through eighth grade. It is a half-day program of arts, crafts, sports, games and swimming (including lessons for non-swimmers). The day begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 12 noon.

You may pick up an application at Town Hall.

Our State Magazine

The Ford Place Restaurant, Pub & Special Events Center will be included in a list of 100 restaurants in the July issue of Our State Magazine. We're excited!

Only one restaurant per county will be listed and we're proud that one of ours in town will represent Montgomery County.

The restaurant used to be our local Ford dealership. Inside, you can see some of the old receipts, the loading dock where cars were lifted upstairs and lots of old pictures. It's truly a walk into our town's history.
