Neighborhood Block Party today
5-7 p.m. Aug. 18
The idea for First Presbyterian Church’s first block party stemmed from a recent staff meeting discussion. Who are our neighbors? How do we reach out to them? How do we celebrate the start of a school year? What better way than to throw a party. Over several months, various committees have worked together planning this downtown event to include music, food trucks, outdoor games, a bounce house and free ice cream.
Through its work with Rowan Helping Ministries, Meals on Wheels, Habitat for humanity and partnership with Overton School, FPC has been involved in the community. Throwing a block party is just another way to reach out the community, a way to say here we are on the corner of Innes and Fulton and we love being your neighbor.
Held in the FPC courtyard and parking lot this evening from 5-7 p.m.

Elks partner with CIS
The Salisbury Elks recently partnered with Communities in Schools – Rowan to help provide school supplies to children in need in the community.
Dr. Ron Turbyfill, Executive Director, gave the Elks a list of needed items and they went to work from there. With the help of grants from the Grand Lodge, local Elks donated more than $3400 in school supplies, backpacks and snacks.
Rich Penk, grants coordinator, has worked with CIS-Rowan for several years now and plans to continue this partnership in the future, “Helping our children helps us all.”
