In partnership with state and local officials and community-based organizations, Surry County Schools is announcing an expansion plan to provide meals for students and families during ongoing school closures. While school closures continue to be necessary to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), we know that many of our children and families rely on the daily meals they receive in our schools.
The County of Surry will hold a kickoff celebration in recognition of the County’s 250th Anniversary on Saturday, May 2 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Historic Courthouse Square, 114 W. Atkins St. in Dobson. The event is called Surry 250. Citizens will enjoy food trucks, Surry County sonkers, children’s activities, historical and tradesmen booths from Wake Forest University and Horne Creek, Revolutionary War re-enactments and the following lineup of bluegrass, old time, country and jazz musicians: Nunn Brothers, Slate Mountain Ramblers, Melva Houston, Anna Mertson, Mickey Galyean and Cullen’s Bridge.
