Message From the Mayor

Mayor Ward










Fall is in the air!

We live in the most scenic part of Davidson County... and this time of year, it is beautiful!

There are many activities that you can do with your family to enjoy the natural beauty of our area.

We have hosted several festivals in Town that have been very successful.

  • The Antiques Festival brings many vendors and treasure hunters into town.
  • The Watermelon Festival was a day packed with watermelon themed games, vendors and the Watermelon Pageant.
  • Our Street Festival started off with a Friday night family night in Harrison Park, with music and free ice cream, popcorn and drinks. Saturday was full of local entertainment, vendors and a great concert. 
  • The Street Treat was a huge "treat" this year! With giant jack-o-lanterns, scarecrows, candy and lots of family fun!
  • Historic Ghost Walk through Denton, was a great night of storytelling throughout the Town.  

As our Nation celebrates Veterans Day, may we also remember the sacrifices that our local Veterans made for our freedom.  Within our community we have Veterans from WWII, the Korean War, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Dessert Storm and several that served our country during peaceful times.  To our men and women in uniform, past, present, and future, God bless you and thank you.

The Parks & Recreation Board will sponsor the 2019 Christmas Parade on December 7th. A hometown Christmas honoring our Veterans. If you know of any Veterans that would like to ride in the parade, please contact Town Hall.  Click here for the Chirstmas Parade flyer and applications can be completed at: 

The Pavilion at Harrison Park will undergo a renovation this fall on the railing.  This will be a great improvement to the appears of the Evelyn Gallimore Pavilion at Harrison Park.

Our leaf collection has begun and will continue throughout the second week in January 2020.  Please remember to place leaves on the road side of the ditch.  The Public Works Department is not able to go onto private property in order to get the leaves from your yard.

As we move into the colder weather, please be aware of any standing or running water you may see in Town. This could be from a broken water line.  Call Town Hall to report any possible leaks, 336-859-4231.  

During this Thanksgiving season, may we take time to truly be thankful.

Mayor Larry Ward
