Landis Elementary

Landis Elementary second grade students are helping to find a cure for cancer. The students did this by selling hand made items and paper cups to display the word “Hope” on the fence at the school. This was a result of learning about an economics unit focusing on producers and consumers. The students raised more than $400 for Relay for Life.

 

April meeting of the Salisbury Woman’s Club 

At the April meeting of the Salisbury Woman’s Club, Buddy Farnan shared his knowledge and experience of collecting “High Rollers,” antique and vintage bicycles. Mr. Farnan displayed some bicycles from the 1800s, focusing on the role women have played in the development of biking and women’s biking fashions through the years. The NC Transportation Museum has vintage bikes on display.

In other club news, Barbara Lloyd presented devotions and members made plans for the final meeting of the year in June and for community projects. Hostess Lloyd used yellow flowers and a nature theme for the tables. Trinity Oaks catered the luncheon.
