Happy Halloween!

by Mayes Harris Team

Happy Halloween Everyone!

Friday night, the rain held off so we could enjoy the Halloween March through Davidson.  Hundreds of costumed residents lined up at Davidson’s Town Hall to parade down Main Street to get candy, meet the merchants and visit with friends.  This is an aspect of Davidson that I just love.  Our sense of community is really “spooktacular” and is one of the things I point out to people who are looking to move to this area.  Every year, the town plans this event with our local merchants, and it’s a really fun way to celebrate this holiday.

Our whole Lake Norman region prides itself in being a welcoming community, and it enhances home sales when I am able to talk about these values.  People want to live here.  They want to raise their families here, retire here, and participate in everything there is to do in the area, whether it be having fun on the lake, going to festivals, shopping, going to sporting or cultural events, or enjoying the outdoors.

Enjoy Halloween and I hope that it brings you more treats than tricks!

Go Hough Huskies!

by Mayes Harris Team

I am a proud sponsor of the Hough High sports teams, and currently my Mayes Harris Realty banner is hanging at the Huskies’ football field. 

This school is named for William Amos Hough, a former principal at North Mecklenburg High School, my alma mater.  He oversaw the integration of that school back in the 60s, and was principal when my two older brothers were students at North Meck.  He was a family friend and we admired him a lot.

So far, Hough High’s football team is having a great season!  On Friday the 30th, they beat North Meck 28-16.  You should go check out a game – the Huskies’ stadium is an impressive facility, and the fans sure support their team.

I’m happy to help support our schools and their sports teams!
