News About Town: Yesterday morning the Town hosted a Coffee with Commissioners at Brakeman’s on Trade St. The conversation covered a spectrum of issues including affordable housing and the status of the relationship the Commissioners have with the CMS School Board. The gathering was not all town business, as the group paused to try and picture a college-aged Mayor Pro Tem John Higdon doing aerobics.
News Around Town: The Farmer’s Market this Saturday is going to be a short one. The market will open at 7:30 and close at 9 to get the vendors out before the parade. If you’re looking for some end-of-summer maters, or to stock up on the first of the season apples (a market fundraiser), get in and get out. Once the parade starts you won’t be going anywhere for a while.
One Good Thing: Mark your calendar for the Matthews Chamber of Commerce 2019 Annual Auto Reunion & Motorcycle Show. This Monday (Labor Day, Sept 2nd) classic and unique cars and motorcycles will take over the town green in front of the town hall from 9 am until 3 pm. Perusing is free to the public and family-friendly. Make sure to look for Tweedy Bird. Got an antique car to show off? The Chamber will take registrations the day of the event.
