Buy Local! Celebrate August's Abundant Harvest at Mount Airy Main Street Farmers' Market! Wednesday . August 2 . 3-7PM
"They know the sounds of snapping beans, roller skates and guitar strings; Box fans rattling on the window sills,
to the one that has been away too long the steps are open arms. And they have always been a place where young lovers exchange hearts. They're shelter from the rain and the August sun that scorches . . . old southern porches."
Old Southern Porches by Dale Ann Bradley
