April issue of Salisbury the Magazine is now available

SALISBURY — The April issue of Salisbury the Magazine, a publication of the Salisbury Post, has reached subscribers and been distributed to locations throughout Rowan County.

The edition showcases an Elizabeth Cook story with Jon C. Lakey photographs on Lady Bird Farm, which owners Lindsey and Tommy Barnhardt have made into an events venue ideal for weddings.

Contributing writer Susan Shinn Turner describes the often behind-the-scenes fundraising efforts of F&M Bank Chairman Emeritus Paul Fisher, who for years has been one of the community’s chief cheerleaders for important community projects.

In addition, the April issue visits Hive and its owner, Michelle Pentoney, in downtown Salisbury to learn how to make easy, do-it-yourself terrariums, one of the art workshops the store regularly offers.

An Arts story takes readers to the woodworking shop of Brad Taylor, a middle school science teacher by day who is as much at home making custom cutting boards as he is duck boats.

In the Food department, learn what goes into the popular kettlecorn Old ’97, made and marketed by Laurie and Coleman Wilson of Spencer. In the Wellness section, meet Catawba College assistant swim coach Tharon Drake, whose blindness has not kept him from achieving great things as a swimmer or coach.

Also featured is Ronald Kepley’s folk artwork from several years ago. Kepley documented a Salisbury for which many older readers might be nostalgic.

This month’s Rowan Originals Q&A spends a few minutes with Bill Godley, owner of Godley’s Garden Center.

Deirdre Parker Smith gives five reading recommendations in Bookish. Local artist Sharon Forthofer provides one of her oil paintings for the Salisbury’s the Place page.

Scene photos in the April edition cover a couple of Salisbury Symphony events, Waterworks Oyster Roast, Wine About Winter and the 49 Days of Gratitude kickoff. Lakey contributed this month’s Through the Lens photograph.

Salisbury the Magazine publishes nine times a year. To advertise or subscribe, visit the Post, call 704-797-POST or go to www.SalisburyTheMagazine.com.
