Statesville All-America City Finalist
Celebrate Statesville! Celebrate it ALL!
I am very honored to live in such a great city in such a wonderful state! I hope that you enjoy the excerpt from the Statesville Chamber of Commerce. Come, visit, and celebrate Statesville, NC and all of the wonderful people and places that it has to offer! See you soon!
The National Civic League will announce the 10 national winners of the designation, All-America City, in Tampa June 16-19. Statesville has been recognized as one of the 32 finalists for that honor, the highest honor bestowed on a community.
The All-America City award is given to communities that embody working together; the public and private sectors, collectively, seeking to address pertinent issues. Being named a finalist suggests that Statesville is a model community that others will look to as they face their own challenges and opportunities. Our goal is to win the title. We hope to take a very diverse group of people with us to Tampa. Would you like to know more about the whole process? Take a look online at www.statesvilleallamericacity.com

If you have never been to NC, you should check out http://www.visitnc.com/ for some great details on places to visit. I definitely recommend visiting the Bilmore Estate in Ashville, NC and doing the winery tour! It is awesome and the Estate has a wonderful array of flowers in it's garden during the spring months and lots of beautiful Christmas decorations at Christmas time!

Being positive and nice and always having a smile on your face should not be a hard habit to change, in fact it should not be a habit at all...it should just be an extension of YOU and who YOU are as a person! That being said, everyone has bad days...everyone has bad weeks or months even! But no matter how bad of time you are having, there is light at the end of the tunnel...and oh what a beautiful, bright light it is! It will get better, things will turn around!
Spring time is a beautiful time, while you are gazing out the window at the trees swaying in the breeze think about how YOU can make someone's day and hope that that person makes another persons day, etc. and that the cycle of smiles, optimism, and compliments never ends! :)
