Summer issue of Salisbury the Magazine is now available

SALISBURY — The summer issue (June/July) of Salisbury the Magazine, a publication of the Salisbury Post, has reached subscribers and been distributed to various spots in Rowan County.

This 35th edition of the magazine also is available at the Post, 131 W. Innes St.

Feature stories in the issue include a visit to Waterworks Visual Arts Center, one of only 12 nationally accredited museums in North Carolina that also is known for its adult and youth art classes; the revival underway at Crescent Golf Course, thanks to the hard work of Derron Dulkoski and his family; and a look at the award-winning turkey calls made by Salisbury’s Rick Alessandrini.

Other features delve into the back stories of the core musicians making up the popular local band Motel Soap; the refreshing summer drinks that result when you infuse water with fruit and herbs; a “forever home” in Cleveland deftly planned and executed by Josh and Amanda Drechsler; and the history waiting around every corner on Salisbury’s African-American Heritage Trail.

Rowan County Sheriff Kevin Auten goes under questioning as the subject for this issue’s Rowan Original Q&A. Joseph Heilig provides the artwork for Salisbury’s the Place.

As always, there are reading recommendations in Bookish, an interesting Through the Lens photograph, an events calendar for June and July, and numerous Scene photos of people you might know out and about in Rowan County.

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