This Saturday, March 25, 2023, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Morehead Street in front of Reidsville City Hall will be closed for a Touch-A-Truck event in conjunction with a City Hall Open House & Tours.
Kids will love getting close up to a variety of vehicles, including those from the City’s Police, Fire and Public Works Departments. Face painting is also planned. Food trucks will be available for people to purchase their lunch during the event!
Inside City Hall, kids (and adults too!) can also take part in a “mock” Council meeting in Council Chambers. City Manager Summer Woodard and several City Council members will be on hand for a quick meet-and-greet. Learn about the history of City Hall, formerly a U.S. Post Office, and see the Hall of Mayors and the Gordon Samstag Mural and several historical displays.
There will be several giveaways at each Sesquicentennial event while supplies last. Sesquicentennial ornaments will also be available for purchase. And, a special Sesquicentennial Medallion, a 3½-inch replica of our 150th logo, is hidden at each event for the lucky finder. Those who find the medallion should let City Clerk Angela Stadler know because their name will be put in a drawing for a special prize at the end of the year.
You can keep track of events and contests on our City websites, reidsvillenc.gov and riseupreidsville.com, and through our social media sites, including the City of Reidsville and Team Reidsville Facebook pages.
And a special thank you to our Platinum Sponsors: Cone Health/Annie Penn Hospital; HomeTrust Bank; Reidsville Chamber of Commerce; Short Sugars Pit Bar-B-Q; and Tri-State Steel. These businesses, along with our other sponsors, are helping to ensure that Reidsville’s Sesquicentennial is a memorable year.
