Mount Gilead Town Commissioners voted Tuesday to contribute $500 to a community “fun day” event being planned for Sat., Apr. 13. Daytime activities will take place at the walking track on West Allenton Street, and an evening gospel music festival is being planned by local artist Shawn Dykes and will include several groups in concert in the Levin Auditorium.
Town Manager Katrina Tatum has been instrumental in planning the event, and representatives of various civic groups volunteered to help with the effort when it was announced at Tuesday night’s commissioners meeting. More details about the festival will be announced in the coming days.
