4. The Guys or Gals Day Out review on pages 84-85 is an excellent (and fun!) resource that highlights some fun things to do for everyone! 5. And hey – lest you (mistakenly) think this is a sleepy town where the sidewalks are rolled up at 8 PM every night, you must check out “Tickets, Tickets.” Learn more about the local opportunities for entertainment!

6. We are super-excited about our Clemmons Year-At-A-Glance calendar on pages 78-79! We think you will be, too! The calendar highlights fun events, as well as more utilitarian events such as bulk pick up dates and recycling weeks. 7. Speaking of recycling, after reading these recycling guidelines on page 65, we realize how much time we’ve wasted by separating our recycling into whites and colors all these years! (Just kidding – that’s a reference from “The Office.”) But in all seriousness – some really great recycling tips will not only help you, but help the earth! And of course, we have our classic content – the Lewisville-Clemmons Chamber of Commerce membership directory…. Clemmons Resources… the Church and School Directory… Oh! One more thing! Make sure you pay special attention to the 2020 Dirty Dozen from the Jerry B. Long Family YMCA! Forsyth Magazines will be putting together a team for this summer event; you won’t want to miss the opportunity to get muddy with us! Stay tuned to our Facebook page to learn more!

The Community Experts for Home Renovation & Custom-Built Homes BY DENISE HEIDEL Few things are as personal as the place we call home. And armed with their genuine love for houses and their heartfelt belief that everyone deserves a home they love, Andrew and Kelly Lael have become widely known as the community experts for home renovation and custom-built homes. In 2019, their now 18-year-old business changed names. “We decided it was time to rebrand the business from Lael Building Group to Lael Homes in order to better convey the warmth of what we do. We aren’t just a construction and interior design company,” explained Lael Homes CEO, Andrew Lael. “We are a family-owned business that is committed to helping other families have the home of their dreams. We are in the business of helping families age in place, customize their homes to fit their lifestyle, and upgrade their homes with amenities that offer luxury and comfort.” The Laels have enjoyed longevity in business largely due to their uncompromising commitment to excellence. “We stay on top of trends in the industry,” President Kelly Lael explained. “While we aren’t interested in being trendy, we understand that certain trends will have more staying power than others. We help our clients choose options that will work for the long-term, and that will remain stylish over time.” “Moreover,” Kelly continued, “we pride ourselves on simplifying the process for our clients. While many in our industry will send their clients all over to choose tile, flooring, paint, cabinets, countertops, etc., we’ve developed a system that is firmly rooted in communication. When we meet with our clients, we’re not interested in creating OUR

vision. It’s about THEIR vision. And our job is to pull together their wants and needs into an aesthetic, functional, and purposeful reality. We know how overwhelming the choices are, so with the clients’ vision in mind, as well as their budget, we pull together up to three options and bring those options directly to our client for their review and selection. Our clients love that we take the legwork out of what can be an overwhelming experience.” Andrew and Kelly have the expertise to build from the ground up or tackle home renovations and remodeling projects. “My husband Andrew has over 300 custom-built homes to his name,” said Kelly. “And when we say custom – we mean custom. Our homes are not cookie-cutter, and they are tailored to meet the needs of the families we work with. But we also love to help people stay exactly where they are. We can offer creative solutions for kitchen and bathroom remodels, as well as new home additions, and we can even create that coveted look that people love – the open floor plan.” “This is a great time to invest in your home,” Kelly continued. “As we gear up for spring, we look forward to hearing from those who need to get the ball rolling on their own home renovation and building projects. Andrew and I can’t wait to get started!” Lael Homes is a premier contractor and interior design business based in Clemmons. Call Andrew and Kelly Lael of Lael Homes for more information or for a free, in-home consultation. Visit LaelHomes.com or call 336.546.7307. Be sure to like them on Facebook and follow them on Instagram and Houzz.

The Laels have a solid understanding of which design trends have staying power. Consider some of the 2020 design trends that they love and expect to see more of in the future: • Reclaimed wood in the kitchen – from butcher block countertops to cabinets and islands. • “Greige” which is a step beyond traditional grey and more interesting than beige. Greige is a statement color that can include tones of blue, purple, or green. • Copper and other mixedmetals are making a huge statement in kitchens. • Colors and textures are starting to show up in both kitchens and bathrooms. • Bathrooms that are returning to nature with interesting tile and stone, as well as greenery. • In 2020, people are embracing the luxurious options in both design and style.

Is Market Volatility Always a Bad Thing? Securities offered through LPL Financial. Member FINRA/SIPC. Investment advice offered through Marzano Capital Group, a registered investment advisor and separate entity from LPL Financial.


Since entering the financial services industry, we have worked with an array of investors who have different personalities. Many investors, especially those newer to the markets, have not encountered a stock market pullback until recently. Unfortunately, these newer investors tend to focus on the negatives of market volatility. These investors could be focusing on the positives and the opportunities created during times of volatility. One may ask, “What opportunities are you referring to?” For starters, pullbacks can create an opportunity to purchase publicly traded companies or other variable investments at a lower price than they may have been trading at in recent months or years. At Marzano Capital Group, our team of financial professionals focuses on the long-term success of our clients, and we believe investors that do not make investment decisions based off of emotion have fared better during market pullbacks than those investors who let emotions dictate their investment decisions. More simply put, market pullbacks can create attractive buying opportunities for investors who are focused on their longterm goals, and working with a financial advisor or a team of financial professionals may help investors identify those goals, stay focused on the long-term and not lose sight of their finish line. If you, as an investor, feel your portfolio is on a rollercoaster ride, it may be an appropriate time to review your overall risk tolerance. Your financial professional may be utilizing a risk tolerance tool or questionnaire to assess risk. At Marzano Capital Group, we

feel it is appropriate to address this subject with each one of our clients. We have a tool in place that we believe gives us an appropriate illustration of one’s tolerance for portfolio fluctuation. As a core principle, we feel it is very important that your investment portfolio is built based on your goals and factors in your risk tolerance. Another concept investors may have heard their tax advisor or financial professional discuss with them during times of market pullback is tax-loss harvesting. What is tax-loss harvesting? This is a technique that should be discussed with your tax professional, but simply put, taxloss harvesting is the process of selling investments in your nonretirement brokerage accounts at a loss to possibly offset realized investment gains you may have captured over the course of the year in other investments. Again, we cannot stress enough – this should be discussed with your appropriate tax professionals. Market volatility can certainly create these opportunities from time to time depending on what you own in your non-IRA investment accounts. As investment professionals, we feel it is important for investors and clients to feel empowered during times of market volatility. This is sometimes easier said than done but, in our opinion, having regular contact with your financial advisor(s) and having investment portfolios that align with your long-term financial goals, is by far the best strategy. Keep in mind there are opportunities that can be created during times of market volatility. Having a conversation with an investment professional may help you stay the course through the ups and downs of the everchanging investment world.

Marzano Capital Group is located at 2625 Neudorf Road, Suite 400 in Clemmons. For more information, call 336.766.0464, or visit the website at www.marzanocapitalgroup.com.

Know Your Neighbor What happens when an energetic and talented writer asks the Village of Clemmons how they can volunteer? An exciting blog titled “Know Your Neighbor” is born.

David Cross suggested the addition of: KNOW YOUR NEIGHBOR to the DiscoverClemmons website. David emigrated to the U.S.A. from England in 1969 and spent his working career, mostly in Pittsburgh, in the aluminum industry, finally retiring to Florida in 1997. He is now living in Clemmons close to family. After driving by various businesses almost daily, his curiosity was piqued. David now uncovers some of the most unique and distinctive businesses in Clemmons through research and interviews. This article only highlights a few favorites. Visit DiscoverClemmons.com to read more about each of these in their entirety, as well as follow along when he adds new places to the list.

JOYCE FARMS – HOME OF THE NAKED CHICKEN Ron Joyce, now president, is almost fanatical in his belief that major meat producers have “Manipulated Mother Nature” in their desire for the cheapest and most profitable possible way to raise animals from birth to slaughter. He describes all Joyce Farms’ products as “naked” which means “nothing added ever.” This includes the company’s grass-fed ‘Heritage Beef, ’ which is prized by top chefs and restaurants around the country for its texture and flavor. The company works with small, family-owned farms in the southeast and at an in-depth level with Dr. Allen Williams, a nationally respected expert in soil health and grazing practices. If you are for dinner at a great restaurant or shopping at a high-end grocery store and find the Joyce Farms’ name, you will be assured of a great ‘naked’ eating experience.


In 1994 Tom Carlton bought Carlton’s (south), a convenience store occupying a small white building on the corner of Harper and Clemmons (NC158) roads across from Tanglewood Shopping center. It, too, has an interesting history having been a gas station (Park Shell) and a bar (Tavern on the Gravel), and is also conveniently located close to the once ‘dry’ Davie line. As you drive past the small white building that is Carlton’s Tanglewood location, just reflect for a moment: more lottery tickets have been sold here over the last three years than by any other single location (about 6,800 of them) in our state. The biggest payout so far for a Carlton patron…$4,000,000!



Stop by the old mill and savor the ambiance of almost a century of existence. Imagine the business as it was: farmers arriving with their horse-drawn wagons bringing harvests for grinding and mixing accompanied by the constant noise of the machines that did the work, their high-pitched hum now forever silenced. Modern economies require larger ‘everything’ to remain viable. We shall not see the likes of our small working mill again, but in partnership with LTD, the Clemmons Mill can still provide all one needs for agriculture, gardens, domestic animals, and advice (always free!).

COMMEMORATING 40 YEARS OF CARE IN OUR COMMUNITY WINDING OUR WAY DOWN MEMORY LANE An impassioned young nurse, Linda Scherl, was sitting in an association meeting in 1977 when she first heard about the concept of hospice care. She followed the presenters out of the room and said, “This is for me.” She soon became our first Executive Director and pacesetter of the hospice movement in North Carolina. Linda Darden, the current president and CEO, had the same feeling many years later under different circumstances. She had enjoyed a long career with Wake Forest Baptist Health when she realized that the work of hospice, and this organization, was for her. Join us for a walk down memory lane with both Linda and Linda.

1977 – 1979 It all began with volunteers, also known as the “Back Porch Gang,” who officially organized and opened Hospice of Winston-Salem/Forsyth County as the first hospice in NC and cared for our state’s first patient in 1979.


| ForsythMags.com

1978 1980 Hospice successfully graduates first volunteer training class.

Our philosophy of care was embraced! Winston-Salem’s major medical centers began referring patients for specialized, compassionate, homebased hospice care.

1985 Nationally, hospices were being recognized as the exceptional model of care, so much so that hospice became a Medicare Benefit in 1985.

1990 – 1991 We expanded our grief counseling services to anyone in the community seeking support after the loss of a loved one. Camp Carousel was established as a bereavement camp – serving as a model for hospice organizations throughout the country.

1998 Our Kate B. Reynolds Hospice Home (KBR) opened and served 405 families in the first year – providing a beautiful, home-awayfrom-home for patients and families needing 24-hour support.

(L-R) JoAnn Davis, Linda Scherl, Deborah Dailey) Since our inception as Hospice of Winston-Salem/ Forsyth County, these five individuals have been the fearless leaders of this organization. Linda Scherl - 1979 - 1988 Deborah Dailey - 1988 - 1995 JoAnn Davis - 1995 - 2011 Brian Payne - 2011 - 2014 Linda Darden - 2014 - Present

2000 We changed our name to Hospice & Palliative CareCenter to better reflect our services and spotlight palliative care.

2001 We established a Community Partnership for End of Life Care, bringing together 250 community organizations and individuals committed to end-of-life care.

2003 – 2006 We begin serving families from dedicated offices in Salisbury, Mocksville, and Walnut Cove. In 2005, we moved from rented office space on Stratford Road and dedicated our beautiful campus on Hospice Lane in Winston-Salem with our Kate B. Reynolds Hospice Home at its center.

2011 – 2012 We dedicated our Wells Fargo Veteran’s Garden at KBR and became a leader in caring for veterans, joining the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization’s We Honor Veterans program.

2018 We changed our name to Trellis Supportive Care to stand out amidst a growing number of hospice care organizations while promoting our philosophy of a framework of support.

As Trellis Supportive Care commemorates its 40th anniversary, president and CEO Linda Darden shared, “I have to say what an honor it is to share the vision of our founders and to work with a devoted team striving to create the best possible care experience for every single patient and family. We can’t make saying goodbye any easier; yet we can ease the pain and provide caregivers with the peace of mind that they have made the best choice for their loved one’s care. We will always treasure our deep roots in the community and the decades of support that have allowed this special organization to care for so many families, friends, and neighbors.” Forsyth Community 2020 |

Everyone needs to find ways to express themselves. It fuels the creative part of your brain and can be really fun and relaxing.

If you enjoy participating in creative activities or watching creative performances, whatever you’re in the mood for, Clemmons has some great opportunities to fill you with a creative spirit.

Express Yourself… Creatively



One popular way to express yourself is to take a class. DIY art studios and classes have become really popular for a girls’ nights out, celebration events, and team building. You can check out different places for different types of art and creativity. Here are a few ideas around Clemmons.

In addition to being a fabulous floral shop, Dahlia’s Floral Design, also in Clemmons, offers a variety of classes if floral design catches your interest. Their offerings include wreaths, terrariums, flower crowns, and more. You can visit their website at dahlias-flowers.com for a list of upcoming events. Hoots and Hollers Make and Take Art shop, located just outside of Clemmons in Winston-Salem, is a great place to have a customized creative experience. They can help you plan a “make and take” art workshop for up to 25 artists of all ages. It is also a great place for a birthday party. Visit their Facebook and Instagram pages for more information.

If you need some instructions, you can take one of their many classes. Their website, sewinglyyours.net, has a calendar of classes and events, and you can also shop online for fabric.


Theatre is a great expression of art that is fun to watch and participate in. Clemmons offers several opportunities to enjoy this form of creative expression. Creative Drama and Children’s Theatre in Clemmons has an amazing program for children of all ages. They offer a variety of classes in music and theatre, as well as the opportunity to see a lot of talented children perform in different shows throughout the year. You can visit their website at creativedramachildrenstheater.com for more information about enrolling your child or to get tickets to a show. The West Forsyth Theatre Department also puts on productions, including one-act plays, a standard play and a musical each year.

Habitat Hits a High Note: 35 Years in Forsyth County BY JEN OLENICZAK BROWN Think about getting ready to go to bed. For me, I brush my teeth, wash my face, put on some serums and lotions, and crawl into bed, lying down on a firm and comfortable mattress, head on my memory foam pillow and snuggled in under a big fluffy comforter. You probably have a similar bedtime routine that ends with a cozy nook of blankets on top of a mattress. Now, think of this story from Dwayne Thompson, Director of ReStore Operations for Habitat for Humanity of Forsyth County. He was recently at one of the ReStores and a gentleman in his 50s was buying a twin-sized mattress, one of the many things sold at ReStores across Forsyth County. He had never owned a mattress before, and spent his nights sleeping on the floor or a blow-up mattress, and was in tears because he was finally able to purchase his first. Not only does the store serve individuals in the community with moments like a first mattress, but also proceeds from the donated, gently used furniture, home décor, appliances, building essentials and more, priced 25-75% off the MSRP, support other Habitat for Humanity initiatives and programs. And this year, Habitat for Humanity hits a milestone in Forsyth County! When an organization has been around for 35 years, you know they are doing something right. When an organization has been around for 35 years, and continues to evolve with the community and people it serves, you know it’s doing something amazing. Cue Habitat for Humanity, celebrating – you got it – 35 years in Forsyth County! If you’re around North Carolina in general, you’re probably near one of the 64 affiliates that built or repaired 650 homes in 2018 alone and helped more than 11,500 individuals and families become homeowners since the very first affiliate opened in Asheville in 1983. Maybe you’ve taken a past version of one of the upcoming classes for 2020: Get Smart About Credit, in-depth information needed to understand credit and your credit score; Plumbing and Leaky Connections, basic plumbing maintenance and repairs for kitchen and washers; or Proper use of Household Tools, focused on identification and safety.

You might not be aware of the Habitat for Humanity vision – one of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Homebuyers who qualify through an affiliate contribute “sweat equity” on their own homes or volunteer in these local ReStores for participation. Maybe you haven’t heard of the repair and Aging in Place programs, where residents who, after an approval process, aren’t able to complete repairs because of financial or physical limitations, get assistance in widening doorways, installing accessibility aids and fixing hazardous living conditions like holes in floors and leaky roofs. You probably haven’t heard of YEP! The new Youth Empowerment Program from Habitat for Humanity of Forsyth County, whose mission is to engage young people through community-based education, mentoring and enrichment. This translates to local youth being taught life and job skills to help break the cycle of poverty, as well as the development of strong bonds with healthy adults and positive activities like attending The Nutcracker Ballet in Winston-Salem, visiting the International Civil Rights Museum and Greensboro Science Museum, as well as the National Museum of African American History and Culture in DC, and a trip to the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro. And maybe you knew about many of these programs but didn’t realize the community and individual impact of donating your gently used items to ReStore. Or what shopping at one of the Forsyth County locations means in the larger picture of seeing through the vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Whether you are familiar with Habitat for Humanity or not, now is a great time to visit your local affiliate and ReStore to join the fun and help local families in your community. For more information about ReStores and services in Forsyth County, visit habitatforsyth.org or call 336.765.8854.

Do you have a special family recipe that has been passed down for generations? Maybe it stirs up warm memories of family members. What’s usually absent from those family recipes is one important ingredient – the unique care and flare of the cook! If you are lucky, you’ve inherited some of that with the recipe. Communities can borrow from the concept of recipes. After all, they are energized and shaped by individuals who lend their hands, hearts, and resources to create something that benefits others. Continuing with this analogy, this is where the Clemmons Community Foundation comes in. We appreciate and steward the community cookbook filled with charitable recipes benefitting causes for generations – and also capture the care and flare of the cooks! Individuals, organizations, and groups from Clemmons, Lewisville and Yadkin County bring us their ideas and passions – causes that they want to see developed and sustained for generations. We capture the stories and set up a fund bearing their name, invest and steward the resources so that it grows over time, while also making grants and scholarships as guided by the donor(s). The result? An enduring gift for the community that includes all the warm memories for good, forever.

HERE’S A FEW RECENT RECIPES TO ILLUSTRATE… SALEM GLEN COLLEGE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM The community of Salem Glen pooled resources and talents to create annual scholarships for high school seniors and adult learners seeking a 2-year degree or career certification. Imagine! It’s an entire neighborhood collectively working together to help individuals gain access to educational opportunities that move their dreams within reach. Salem Glen will also pair the recipient(s) with a mentor from the community. CANCER SERVICES ENDOWMENT FUND This remarkable organization enters 2020 celebrating their 65th year anniversary helping those who receive a cancer diagnosis navigate the journey through treatment and wellness. They provide support and resources to more than 4,500 patients a year and their families. Cancer Services is an independent, local organization that relies totally on local contributions. The endowment fund will give contributors the opportunity to make a gift that provides a reliable source of income to help sustain their work – forever. STEVE AND ANNE SESSIONS FUND Steve and Anne are compassionate leaders and local business owners whose Christian faith guides their family life, work, and generosity. The causes that touch them include programs that inspire, shape, and advance individual potential and purpose, such as UNCSA scholarships and InterVarsity Christian Fellowship at UNCSA, Arts for Life, G.I.D.E, and their faith community. The fund bearing their name will endure in perpetuity, with the history of both compassion and grants modeled forward to future generations. Inspired? Want your charitable recipe to be passed along for generations? Give us a call. We’re saving a page in the community cookbook especially for you!

WORKING WITH THE CLEMMONS COMMUNITY FOUNDATION… • We are your neighbors! We are a local nonprofit organization with deep roots in the communities of Clemmons and Lewisville. • Your interests and causes matter to us – here and beyond. While our focus is serving the needs in Clemmons and Lewisville, individuals can use the community foundation to support multiple charities – locally and beyond.

• Highly personalized. We are creative, flexible and provide highly personalized service tailored to each individual’s charitable goals and financial interests. • Tax smart. We offer maximum tax advantages allowed by law. • You can create a legacy. We build endowment funds that create a personal or family legacy benefitting the causes you care about. We document, honor and follow your goals and intentions, now and forever…and build in your succession plan, if circumstances of your initial intent change.

• We follow up on grants awarded – monitoring program progress and outcomes, ensuring the dollars are used as intended and making the impact you intended. • You make the difference. We make it easy. Even your biggest charitable ideas and goals become easier to accomplish and a rewarding experience – even fun! We serve you and bring the technical expertise to take care of all the pesky details.

The Rotary Club of Clemmons – Q&A with Susan Joy, Past President of the Rotary Club of Clemmons BY MEGHAN CORBETT

Q) WHAT IS ROTARY? WHAT DOES IT REQUIRE TO BECOME A MEMBER? A) The Rotary International website will tell you, “Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders and problemsolvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities and in ourselves” but few of us know that when we decide to join our

local Rotary. Locally, Rotary is a service organization dedicated to improving the local community. Rotary is open to and welcomes all, membership requirements may vary slightly from one club to another, so we encourage you to do a little investigating and visit a number of clubs in your area. It will be well worth your time to find a club that suits you best.

Q) WHAT IS A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE ROTARY CLUB OF CLEMMONS? A) The Rotary Club of Clemmons was established in 1993 with 28

members. The Reynolda Rotary Club was instrumental in helping establish the club in Clemmons. Throughout our 25+ year existence, we have committed our efforts to supporting organizations with missions related to lifting up youth, veterans and those in need. We just celebrated the 22nd year of hosting Hand in Hand, which is our

signature service event focused on providing a Christmas program to students in a local after-school enrichment program. We fund our service projects and charitable contributions through three annual fundraisers – a golf tournament in May, a Reverse Raffle in March and, three years ago, we launched The Totally Outstanding Awesome Stroll through Tanglewood (TOAST) in November.

Q) WHAT IS THE MISSION OF ROTARY? A) We provide service to others, promote integrity and advance

world understanding, goodwill and peace through our fellowship of business, professional and community leaders.

• Second – High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying by each Rotary of his occupation as an opportunity to serve society;

The objective of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

• Third – The application of the ideal of service by every Rotarian to his personal, business and community life;

• First – The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;

• Fourth – The advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship


Hanes, Cancer Services, Boy Scouts of America, Guiding Institute for Development Education (GIDE), The Humane Society of Davie County, The Clemmons Food Pantry, scholarships for students of West Forsyth High School, Trellis Supportive Care and The Salvation Army.

Q) IS THERE ANY NEWS FOR 2020 THAT YOU’D LIKE TO SHARE? A) The Rotary Club of Clemmons is the host this year of an area-

wide annual Rotary event – The Women in Rotary Luncheon. This year, the luncheon will be held at the Forsyth Country Club on Wednesday, February 26th beginning at 11:30am. Our keynote speaker at the luncheon will be Dr. Angela Pringle Hairston, the newly installed superintendent of the Winston Salem/Forsyth County

School district. This event is designed to highlight the important contributions that women make to their communities and Rotary and is held in partnership with all the Rotary clubs in our area; Clemmons, Kernersville, Reynolda, Stratford, Western Forsyth, Winston-Salem and Mocksville. For ticket information, please contact ClemmonsRotary@gmail.com.

Q) WHAT IS YOUR HOPE FOR THE FUTURE OF THE ROTARY CLUB OF CLEMMONS? A) That more members of our community will become aware of the work we do in our community and be inspired to join us. Q) IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU’D LIKE READERS TO KNOW? WHERE CAN MORE INFORMATION BE FOUND? A) All meetings are open to the public, and we would love to have anyone join us for breakfast. We meet Wednesday mornings at 7:00am at the Village Inn on Ramada Drive in Clemmons. Other information can be found on our Facebook page. Our annual

Living in a Small Town BY LAUREN SEPHTON

It’s five pm, you’ve just arrived home from a stressful day at work, you go to make a cup of your favorite herbal tea to sip on as you watch the birds chirp blissfully on your front patio. You soak in the tranquility of nature before the chummy conversations begin as your friendly neighbors stroll by on their evening walks. This opportunity for serenity and relaxation doesn’t come often with the hustle and bustle of downtown living.


With more family-oriented surroundings, small-town living provides the most ideal conditions for raising a family. With more family-friendly activities and restaurants that won’t break the bank, families can truly enjoy each small moment together. With lower crime rates, parents are often less stressed about letting their children soak up the sun’s radiance as they play outside in the beautiful weather. Similarly, couples can feel more relaxed about leaving their bikes chained outside a local coffee shop as they dive in for their morning cup of joe. You will most likely run into a few familiar faces as you purchase your decaf coffee since small towns offer the phenomenal opportunity to cultivate


| ForsythMags.com

long-lasting friendships. If you’re new to town and don’t know many friendly faces just yet, no fear! With fewer residents, you most likely won’t be turned away when offering to lend a hand to create a positive impact on the community – it’s a perfect opportunity to establish new relationships and better understand the story behind your town.


Small towns offer the most ideal conditions to help you stick with your budget. With fewer franchise brick-and-mortar brands around every corner, you’ll experience less temptations to spend your hard-earned money. However, small towns will typically hold craft fairs to exhibit the handiwork of their local artisans. With small-town appreciation, comes more support and less competition. Eating, drinking, and buying local not only keeps the local economy strong, but it also supports your sweet neighbors. As the saying goes, “Small businesses are the heartbeat of your neighborhood and the spirit of the town.” While there may be fewer activities and events held each night, it gives you more freedom to master a new skill or venture a new hobby.


Values are more deeply-rooted in small towns. Especially living in the south, residents often expect their neighbors to be warm and polite. You may even find the older generation nurturing young adults with wisdom as they nourish them with home-cooked meals. Similarly, new residents may be treated by their neighbors with warm and delicious gifts of welcome.


What are the hidden secrets of smalltown living? With a close-knit community comes the chances for quirky traditions to reunite one another. For example, last year, the charming town of Clemmons held a Monsters Dash and Goblin Hop at Morgan Elementary School to provide a safe and fun time for children to enjoy Halloween. The Clemmons Lip Sync Battle was another outstanding event that collected heaps of donations for local foster families. A small town’s weekly newspaper often provides the details of upcoming events that you and your family may want to plan on attending this year. Living in small towns doesn’t mean missing out on life; it can almost be quite the opposite. Small towns offer an abundance of freedom, opportunity, and personal growth. If you live in a small town already, then try switching things up this Saturday morning. Take a short drive to your local diner to order a scrumptious stack of buttermilk pancakes, laugh with your cherished family, and maybe run into a few friends along the way. If you don’t already live in a small town, then what are you waiting for?

Having a Dog Gone Good Time with Your BFF (Best Furry Friend) Clemmons, NC is a Dog-Friendly Community BY CAROLYN S PETERSON

Life can come at you fast and furious, and some days you just want to spend time with your BFF…best furry friend. There’s no cuter co-pilot than your pup - and for most people, canine company is preferred over humans (at least it is for me!). Doing activities with your dog not only strengthens your body and enhances your pup’s, too, but also provides physical and mental stimulation, promoting overall good health for you and Fido. Whether you have a new puppy or an older dog, there are plenty of places in Clemmons, NC to help make great memories with your four-legged baby.


In May 2013, Tanglewood Park opened Tanglewoof Dog Park, with areas designated for small and large-sized pups. Overall, the park is designed for dogs to legally run offleash in a 2.3-acre fenced area. In case you or your furry friend gets a bit thirsty, there are water fountains for both two and four-legged visitors, and if you need to rest, benches are scattered throughout the facility. After you finish playing at Tanglewoof Dog Park, you may want to head over into Clemmons, where several restaurants are dog-friendly. Along with the dog park, you can take a stroll along the many trails at Tanglewood Park, plus most neighborhoods have sidewalks to encourage a pet-friendly atmosphere and exercise for you and your pup.


You can always go through any drive-thru at a restaurant and get you and your pooch a bite to eat, but if you’d like to enjoy your meal sitting down and not behind the wheel, Clemmons has options for outdoor seating. Dairi-o, Panera, and Chik-fil-a have patio seating suitable for leashed pups. Whether you split your burger with your BFF is up to you, but I’m thinking your pup would like it for sure! You can also call local restaurants and ask about the pet policy.


For those who are coffee fanatics, you probably find yourself in the steady stream of customers at Starbucks in Clemmons. In case you didn’t know, Starbucks offers dogs a tasty treat called a Puppuccino. The contents of a Puppuccino aren’t too complicated…it’s all whipped cream and dogs love it. As a dog lover, I want to share as much of my life with my pups as possible. Riding in the car to get a treat, walking through Tanglewood Park on the trails, or playing at Tanglewoof Dog Park, are good ways to strengthen your bond with your BFF and enjoy some time away from the craziness of life.

Mark your calendar for Saturday, May 2, 2020, and plan to attend the 11th Annual Clemmons Community Day. This fun event is a true celebration of community where residents of Lewisville and Clemmons come together in support of each other. Many local businesses, churches, and civic organizations will be represented. There will be local vendors, games, music, and food. What is not to love about this fun day? Folks have been looking forward to Clemmons Community day since enjoying last year’s event. “Last year’s Clemmons Community Day was a huge success! Approximately 5,000 attendees come out to enjoy all the fun, food, and activities according to the Forsyth Sheriff’s Department. We’re excited to offer this community-wide event again for the 11th year in a row!” says Ditra Miller, Executive Director, Lewisville-Clemmons Chamber of Commerce. This event is organized by the Lewisville-Clemmons Chamber of Commerce and will be held in Clemmons at the Jerry Long Family YMCA on Peace Haven Road Saturday, May 2, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Jerry Long Family YMCA is a long-time member of the Chamber and is appreciated for its annual hosting of this very special community event. Kimberly Van Scoy, WXII 12 News anchor, will be this year’s emcee. The first Clemmons Community Day, held 11 years ago, was created through collaboration between local realtor Jody Peske and former Clemmons mayor, John Bost. The Chamber of Commerce has been pleased to continue the annual event as a way of supporting not only local businesses but the entire community. The event is made possible through the many partnerships between the Chamber and the generous sponsors who support Clemmons Community Day.

More then 150 vendors will showcase their businesses to the community and engage with their neighbors to educate them about their available products and services. In addition, there will be fun activities for families to participate in together, including a kid’s rock wall for climbing, a bounce house, face painting, balloon art, trackless train rides, a ladder truck, and a super slide. There will be music with a local DJ and don’t forget the food! Come hungry and sample delicious fare from local food vendors. Local resident Chad Conner remembers last year’s event, “It was a blast! Our family loved the gem mining, the rock wall, the train, and all the giveaways. We got snow cones as we were leaving, and they gave us free baseball tickets! Everyone was so nice. We look forward to this event every year.” Plan to come out with your family and enjoy the entertainment, fitness demonstrations, food, and games! The event is free to attend due to the support of sponsoring businesses. To learn how to participate as a sponsor or vendor, please visit the Chamber web site Lewisville-Clemmons.com, or call Ditra Miller at 336-970-5100. As always, attendees are encouraged to bring donations for the Clemmons Food Pantry. Donations of non-perishable canned and boxed foods, as well as adult hygiene items, are always welcomed by the Clemmons Food Pantry, and Clemmons Community Day is the perfect time to donate. The Jerry Long YMCA is located at 1150 S. Peace Haven Road in Clemmons. Parking is free and the event will be held rain or shine (a little rain has never dampened the enthusiasm of past attendees!). Please, no pets or alcohol. See you there!

One of the best things about living in Clemmons is the great schools. From elementary school to high school, the schools in this community do a great job of bringing out the best in their students. They offer a variety of academic, community, and athletic opportunities for students to participate in. With all of those opportunities, there are lots of places for students to shine. In this community, the students and the schools are all Clemmons Champions.


In order to build academic champions, Morgan Elementary offers a battle of the books team, after-school tutoring, and a variety of after-school programs and clubs. This has helped them to exceed growth on state testing 2 out of 3 years. They also boast one of the highest cultural ratings in the district and provide a diverse cultural and socio-economic experience for their students. This

school shows up as a community champion by partnering with the YMCA to provide swimming and water safety to all 2nd graders, running a Meals for Morgan Backpack Program to provide food to take home for 104 students weekly, and working as part of a Faith Based Partnership to provide services to meet the needs of children in various local schools.

The academic champions at Clemmons Elementary have exceeded growth for the last four years straight. This Grade A school, with 13 National Board Certified Teachers, offers lots of clubs for students to participate in like Fire/Safety Club, Running Club, Kindness Club, Chorus, and Young Authors. As community champions, they have partnered with Clemmons Food Pantry, made 150 shoe boxes for the elderly and 200 placemats for Trinity Elms Nursing Home through their Kindness Club. Additionally, PE Teacher Katie Charma was able to raise over $20,000 for the American Heart Association making Clemmons Elementary School #1 in the district and #10 in the North Carolina for supporting the cause for “Healthy Kids.”


Southwest Elementary is the host to academic champions from around the county as the home of one of only two elementary HAG programs in WS/ FCS. It is also stand out as a community champion with its on-site food pantry for Southwest families. Opened in 2015, it has served 15 - 20 families each school year. Community partnerships provide financial support and volunteers coordinate all aspects of the pantry.

Clemmons Middle School has a variety of academic champions with its awardwinning Robotics Go-Bots Team, 2019 WS/ FCS science fair winners of 1st place for the Earth / Environmental Award and 2nd place Chemistry Award, all while exceeding growth for the last two school years and improving from a C to B grade school. As athletic teams are introduced on the middle school level, there is room to highlight the athletic achievements at Clemmons Middle School as well. In the 2018/2019 school year, they had many championship teams, including 1st place presentation for JV Boys’ Basketball Conference Champions, Varsity Boys’ Basketball City County Champions, Baseball Conference Champions, Boys’ Cross Country City County Champions, Boys’ Volleyball Conference Champions, Varsity Girls’ Basketball City County Champions, JV Boys’ Basketball Conference Champions, Boys’ Track City County Champions, Boys’ & Girls’ Track Overall City County Champions, and Girls’ Tennis Conference Champions. So far this year, they have already won as Baseball City County Champions, Softball City County Champions, Girls’ Volleyball City County Champions, and Boys’ Volleyball City County Champions.


West Forsyth High School is a shining example of how Clemmons Champions excel. This high school, that serves the Clemmons community, is a diverse population built on the foundation of setting high standards to achieve continuous growth. There are over 40 student clubs and organizations and each one participates in at least one community service project each year. The Academic Champions at West Forsyth were offered over $14,000,000.00 in college scholarships in the 2018-2019 school year. Over the last seven years, the Athletic Champions at West Forsyth have won seven state team championships. They are also proud of their award-winning Fine Arts and Performing Arts programs, including dance, drama, chorus, band, and orchestra, that have produced champions of the arts year after year.

When I moved here from Brooklyn over four years ago, most of my NYC friends thought I would be bored in the south. “What are you going to do for fun?!” they asked me, daily, until I finally told them to stop, and I would figure it out. Leaving a city like New York was already nerve-wracking enough – moving to a place that was decidedly different when it came to “things to do” scared the pants off of me. Little did I know that I would have an incredible amount of options – from art to food to sports and everything in between. The biggest problem? Making time to do it all! If you’re looking to score tickets in advance to some of your favorite things to do, see and experience, there are a few “best practices” I’ve incorporated over the past few years that I’d like to share with you:


This one might seem easy, but let me tell you – typing in “things to do in [town]” is one of the most magical search phrases I can enlighten you with. Google populates a calendar from popular event platforms like Eventbrite, so if you’re not too sure about what you want to do, you can easily pick a random fun-sounding event, snag a ticket and have a great evening. My search from today yielded tickets for a visiting string band at the Ramkat, a painting class, a college basketball game, a fly tying class and a full moon manifestation circle. Whatever you’d like to experience, you’ll find!

If a general internet search is too overwhelming, tap into local sites like Visit Winston Salem, DiscoverClemmons.com, the Journal, Yes Weekly! or Smitty’s Notes for suggested and recommended adventures. And a shameless self-promotion: every month, Forsyth Magazines curates a calendar of events for folks just like you! Don’t forget to check out some of our local universities – Wake Forest, UNCSA, Salem College and WSSU – to see some of the best and brightest young talent in the area!


Winston isn’t just called the City of ARTS and Innovation for fun – several cultural destinations offer free admission – you can stroll through the streets of Old Salem, check out contemporary art at SECCA or marvel at flowers and plants at Reynolda Gardens, to name a few. There’s also Quarry Park views, Salem Lake strolls, the trail at Tanglewood or Village Point Greenway for fun with your furry family, and Bailey Park people watching – you might also end up at the last one on a summer live music night or a community yoga day!


Most, if not all, events have presale ticketing for the planners in the crowd. Visit their website, give them a call and in some cases, show up! We’re cautioning you to call ahead – many popular events can and will sell out! We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorites – it’s by far not exhaustive and complete, and we hope it helps you find your favorite thing to do!

Seasons in the South BY LAUREN SEPHTON

From the magnolia blossoms of spring to the warm salty summer breeze of rolling coastal waters, to brisk autumn drives on the Blue Ridge Parkway to dancing snowflakes of winter, locals living in the South can experience the majestic wonders of all four seasons.


The South is full of energy during the spring season. The birds begin chirping once more as they commence their very own season of love. As you step onto your front porch, the refreshing air may whisper past your ear, and golden sunshine may radiate warmth as a smile is brought to your face. You recognize that it’s time to pull out the lawnmower as the vibrantly green grass once again comes alive, ready to cultivate new memories like afternoon picnics and backyard baseball. On your evening stroll, you may notice the scent of fresh rain making its debut. These very same rainy evenings are nurturing the early blossoms of the dogwood’s pink and white floral clouds. The bees are buzzing around as they pollinate the budding wildflowers that are just moments from being fully sprung in energetic crowds. This is an impeccable time to begin planting your dream of a home garden brimming with zucchini squash, crisp cucumbers, heirloom tomatoes, and much more. The thriving creation around us inspires new beginnings for the prosperous year to come.


Locals make the most of the early morning cool air remains cool, as the sky glares baby blue splashed with swirls of pink. It’s best to take advantage of ideal walking and running conditions while you can, before the heat comes on full strength. As midday arrives, the brilliant sun bronzes the students pushing themselves in preparations for fall’s athletics. Locals long for the weekend to relax by the neighborhood pool with friendly faces or take a day trip to the beach where the hot wind rolls off the ocean. The humidity can be nothing but relentless some days, pushing locals to escape to the beautiful mountains for a relaxing hike or some invigorating cycling as the cheerful sun peeks through the green canopy of the forest. Afterward, step into a breezy cafe for a cold lemonade to revitalize your energy before the ride home.


The crisp breeze, apple butter, and golden foliage are just a few of the pleasures to experience during autumn in the South. If you have a free weekend, take a short drive to a local apple orchard to pick fresh, juicy apples that are ideal for homemade apple cider, apple cobbler, and so on. While on your drive, take a moment to experience the warm colors that are sweeping the South. You’ll find great pull-off spots along the Blue Ridge Parkway to enjoy autumn’s rust-colored scenery. Similarly, toss on your comfiest flannel as you stroll through your local farmers market that’s thriving with seasonal ingredients for a home-cooked dinner. You may notice the farmers parking themselves in little spots along the road that are overgrown in pumpkins, naturally perfect to decorate for upcoming fall festivities. Don’t forget to prepare some chips and guacamole as you wildly scream fight songs, and cheer on your favorite football teams!


It’s the most wonderful time of the year that includes pulling those winter coats out of our closets as we embrace the icy windows, frigid walks to our car, and nippy morning runs. As we dive deeper into the winter months with hopes of a snow-kissed ground, it’s the perfect excuse to bundle up in a warm blanket by the fireside, roast marshmallows outside, or have a movie marathon inside. Be sure to wear layers snowboarding, skiing or tubing down the various ski mountains in NC as the gloriously bright sun radiates off the midday snow. Or cheer on your loved ones inside the ski lodge as you wrap up in blankets to sip on hot chocolate and read a heartwarming book.

Experience the South’s encouraging sunsets and blissful creation year-round, but be sure to take note of the special surprises that each individual season brings.

I am a plant person. Kind of how cat people have a lot of cats, I have an almost embarrassing amount of plants. Even when I lived in Brooklyn in a tiny apartment with cats that ate houseplants, I crammed everything I could onto my fire escape. Peppers, tomatoes, herbs – all in little pots, all smuggled back inside when the Fire Marshall came to check the building (because…plants on the escape might prove a problem if there is an actual fire!). When I moved to Winston I was delighted to HAVE an actual garden in the ground, but there was a whole new wrench in my plant-loving brain: certain plants don’t thrive, no matter what you do, in certain areas of the country. You might be thinking, “Well, of course!” But if you’re like me, you were a bit shocked by that last statement, and maybe even questioning your skills! Don’t worry, I’ve learned a few things about this area of the country and what thrives – and what might not. While I’m not a botanist yet, I’ve figured out a few places to start, look and people to ask. First off, we’re firmly located in Zone 7 according to the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map. This map is used to show where certain species are most likely to thrive – and while it’s not an absolute, it’s a nice place to start your plant quest. Zones are determined by the average annual extreme minimum temperature – which explains my zone swap from Brooklyn to Winston-Salem. You can go with a lower zone on your Google search for seeds, but a higher zone wouldn’t be a great idea (for example, in Forsyth County, Zone 6 is ok – not Zone 8.).


| ForsythMags.com

The nuances can feel wildly complicated at first, and fine to avoid if you’re a first-time gardener. You can easily go to a local garden shop or nursery (not a big box retailer) and shop – the plants that are there are generally the ones that will thrive. Once you have your first year under your belt, you can experiment with new plants in Zone 7. Because of our location, we’re actually in good shape – your biggest problem is going to be picking a few to start with and not buying the entire store!


Moderate weather gives us plenty of variety with our annuals. Some of my favorites are marigolds, impatiens, sunflowers, sweet pea, snapdragon, and begonia.


Know that your perennials are coming back every year, so snag plants you love (or can supplement with plants you love!). Easy go-to’s: hostas, butterfly weed, Shasta daisy, lavender, peony, and forgetme nots.


This list is NOT short – and because of the moderate weather you can go a few rounds in your garden, from apples to arugula, beets to blackberries, tomatoes to turnips. Your best bet is to spend some time on the Farmer’s Almanac site and see what you enjoy!


This might sound like a broken record and it’s because we are oh-so-lucky to be in this area of the country. Spend some time at some of our local nurseries and then spend some time watching the spot you’d like to plant your new tree in. How much light does it get? What side of your house is it on? When you go to pick out your tree, have this information in mind! When in doubt, ask! The local greenhouses and nurseries are incredibly helpful, educated and excited to help you increase the green in your life.

10 Best Things About Living in Clemmons BY LAUREN SEPHTON

The charming town of Clemmons has been enriching the lives of its residents since its founding in 1802. With more residents than business owners, Clemmons offers a few unique characteristics that can’t be found elsewhere.


With lines that reach back to the highway, the Festival of Lights is a classic, long-loved family tradition with their S’moresville that’ll cultivate lasting memories. From guided horseback rides to summer swims at the pool, Tanglewood Park is a locals’ and visitors’ favorite. Rich in history, Tanglewood Park offers guests the opportunity to holiday at their Historic Manor House Bed and Breakfast that dates back to 1859 or camp out in their RV Park to experience true stillness of nature. And everyone enjoys experiencing the beautiful scenery surrounding the walking trails and the Tanglewoof Dog Park.


With bubbly personalities and amicable politeness, Clemmons doesn’t fall short of any Southern hospitality. Conversations can often go on for hours as company is cherished and never rushed. Locals extend their kindness to every stranger, and soon-to-be friend, often complemented by good home cooking. Clemmons’ locals tend to not only open their homes, but their hearts, to form lifelong connections.


Clemmons offers the charming opportunity of getting to know not only your neighbors but the local business owners. The small-scale boutiques present more than kindly faces at checkout and trendy attire, as you’ll often run into the store owner as you shop. From community events to YMCA classes, locals are able to make this small town their home and not just where they work.


Casually sitting back on Hampton Road, the Clemmons Mill is one of the oldest structures in Clemmons. The mill was built by L. C. Hobson of Yadkin County in 1920 to supply farmers with a place to mix their feeds and grind their corn. Whether the spring’s flowers are blooming or you’ve run out of horse feed, the mill is always a simple, charming experience.


Clemmons can easily keep your children active, from little league baseball, soccer at the BB&T Sports Park, summer swim teams to Tanglewood’s 1150 feet long BMX track. Join in on the lively entertainment and meet new faces as you attend a high school football game, cheering on with the passionate students.


Whether you’re craving a fluffy stack of buttermilk pancakes or eggs with hash browns, Clemmons offers a variety of local breakfast spots to satisfy your cravings. These diners are perfect for weekend brunches to catch up with the family after a busy week, and you’ll more than likely recognize a few familiar faces as you munch on your favorites.


Every year, Clemmons has been updating and innovating its resources to bring residents a wonderful living experience. Familiar chain stores are being built for convenience, and new small businesses are opening. Clemmons is an exceptional place to live, as well as work.


You can often find your new neighbors in Clemmons introducing themselves with a sweet, freshly-baked welcoming gift. Similarly, there are many opportunities for residents to make an impact in their community through volunteering with a Clemmons organization. With Clemmons being a smaller town, each resident’s contribution makes a direct, positive impact.


Clemmons steers clear of those tall skyscrapers and busy roads, leaving you plenty of room to relax and enjoy each moment you are living. This allows you to set aside more time for fishing, biking, and walking along the Village Point Greenway with loved ones. If you’re not particularly fond of outdoor activity, then the peace of mind from fresh air is something you can’t experience elsewhere.


Large cities are notorious for their high costs of living; however, Clemmons offers many of the same benefits without the added fee. Clemmons helps its residents save their money to truly live life.

The small Village of Clemmons offers more than a handful of benefits. From local boutiques to family-oriented activities, Clemmons gives residents a sense of belonging through community. What’s your favorite memory of Clemmons?

Dwelling or Selling?


“With a few tips and a little work on your part, your home can look fabulous whether you are dwelling or selling.” ~Anonymous Having lived in our present home for 15 years now, I need to clear out, clean up, and get rid of clutter. I have said that the only thing good about moving is that it makes you do just that. After a little hard work, I love that feeling of a clean, organized, and de-cluttered home. I would rather not move in order to get that feeling, though. You may not be planning to sell this year, but whether you are dwelling or selling, with a little hard work on your part and a few tips, your home can look fabulous. 1. Make a good first impression. The outside of your home is the first thing guest see. Give your front door a fresh coat of paint in a color to complement the brick, siding, and roof. Clean or replace the hardware on your door. Don’t forget the house numbers and porch lights. A new welcome mat and seasonal plants will help say welcome to your guests. 2. Clear out, clean up, and get rid of clutter. We all have too much stuff! Don’t get overwhelmed. Do one room at a time. You will feel a sense of relief when you accomplish this task, and your home will look so much better. 3. Less is more when it comes to furniture. Look at what you have and consider what pieces are really necessary.


| ForsythMags.com

4. Have fun with furniture and accessories. Do some “redesigning” on your own. Move things around. Create conversation areas. Shop your home. Think of ways pieces can be used in rooms other than where you would normally place them. It might be fun to give that old dresser a facelift with a fresh coat of paint and new hardware and give it a new home in your foyer or used as a buffet in your dining room. 5. Clean windows and open window

treatments to let natural light in. You’ll be surprised that something this simple can make your room seem larger.

6. Lighting is so important in your room, whether it is task lighting in your kitchen or bath, or lamps in the other rooms. I say, “Have at least three lamps in a room placed to form a triangle to distribute light around the room.” 7. Add splashes of color. A fresh coat of paint gives you more bang for your buck than anything else you can do to give your home a new look. Whether you choose color on your walls or in your accessories, color will give a room new life. 8. Hang artwork where it will be pleasing to the eye. Consider the size wall and the furniture it will be hung above and choose art proportionately. To hang art that will be viewed while standing, measure

the height of the piece, find the center, measure 60” from center to floor. If it will be viewed while seated, hang approximately 57” from center to floor. 9. Accessories

are important, but too many add clutter, so

choose carefully. A few larger pieces are better than lots of smaller ones. Group in odd numbers with varying heights.

10. Bring in nature by adding green plants, fresh flowers, etc. Dwelling or selling? These tips will set you on a course to having a beautiful home. It is my pleasure to share decorating ideas to help you create a beautiful home. Need help? Give ReDESIGNS by Ava a call to schedule an appointment. 336-345-2929.

clemmons wonderland BY MEGHAN CORBETT

Those of us who call this area home know all about the many offerings of Tanglewood and the annual Festival of Lights. Visiting this festive place around the holidays is a tradition for many, and it is all a part of the Clemmons Wonderland! According to the website, “Clemmons Wonderland is THE resource for everything to see and do in the Village of Clemmons during this magical season. We invite you to visit our many boutiques, restaurants and retail establishments this season. Experience the spirit of the season filled with southern hospitality – find that perfect gift, enjoy a special meal with your family or plan an overnight stay to enjoy the many surrounding Yadkin County wineries, as well as nearby holiday tours and productions.”

Additionally, The Festival of Lights has been named a Top 20 Event in the Southeast, and anyone who has enjoyed this display knows why! It is such a special time of togetherness and community spirit. One of the most anticipated events of the wonderland is the annual tree lighting. The way this event brings together people in the community is remarkable, and the way it incorporates members of the community is beyond words. Kimberly Stewart and her family were given the honor of lighting the tree in 2019, and there is no more deserving person than Kimberly! According to a statement, “Kimberly was diagnosed with two different types of breast cancer in October 2018. Kimberly, along with her husband James, and children,


| ForsythMags.com

Noelle and Levi have been role models for what love, faith and a fight for our lives looks like this past year.” Event organizers were very excited to honor Kimberly with a fun-filled evening where the entire community could show her and her family how much they are loved.

As of now, Kimberly has completed her chemotherapy as well as several surgeries and was able to return to work at the beginning of this year! After a difficult year of fighting, her faith and support have gotten her through to the other side. Lighting the tree was looked at as a celebration and reflection of all she had been through in 2019. “It is an amazing honor and a humbling experience to be chosen to light the tree this year,” said Kimberly. “There’s so much to be thankful for this year! Thankful to be finished with chemo and surgeries. Thankful for my wonderful team of doctors and nurses. Thankful for my family, my friends and my village. Thankful for the most supportive coworkers, past and present, you could ever ask for. Thankful for my church. And, most of all, thankful for God’s grace and mercy in my life.” Events like the tree lighting, Festival of Lights and all the others that make the Clemmons Wonderland so special are why this community is so strong. It truly makes the season what it was always meant to be about! For more information on Kimberly’s journey, visit her Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ faithfilledfight.

Clemmons is a great place to visit. There are so many things to see and do, from golf to wineries to parks and more. All these things are a draw to tourists, but where should they stay when they visit?

We love exploring new places, spaces, and businesses with our children. When it comes to Clemmons, our outings always seem to be filled with small-town charm. Our team at Triad Moms on Main has put together some of our favorite ideas of things to do in the Clemmons area. In addition, Triad Moms on Main keeps a daily calendar chocked full of things to discover in the Triad. We hope you’ll check it out!


You can drop by the library any time to browse the aisles and sit on the floor to enjoy a book with your little buddy. You can also plan your visit around story times. The Clemmons library offers Toddler and Preschool story times each week. They also offer a Sensory-Friendly Saturday Movie Matinee once per month in addition to other special events. Check the library calendar or the TMoM calendar to see what’s coming up.


The Jerry Long YMCA is one of our favorite spots for indoor fun. Their newly renovated pool with a slide is perfect kids. We also love taking the kids to Skateland USA for some classic family fun! Lastly, consider signing your child up for a class or summer camp at Clemmons Gymnastics. They have options for many different age levels.


| ForsythMags.com


Clemmons has some of the best sweets in the area! Check out a different one of our favorites each week by visiting Sam’s Ice Cream, Sweet Frog, Dairi-O, Mama Mia Italian Ice, Abbots Frozen Custard, or Ava’s Cupcakes.


Tanglewood Park features paved trails for walking, running, or biking. There are also several nature trails for those seeking adventure with mountain biking. Not to mention, this huge park also includes two fabulous playgrounds, a dog park, a lake, and an incredible public pool with a lazy river and splash park. We also love to take a moment to watch the horses when they are out and about! Another hidden gem is Village Point Lake, located behind Morgan Elementary, which has a nice walking path around the lake as well as a beautiful dock. This is a great place to take kids fishing, as the lake is stocked with fish and a timed feeder in the middle of the lake attracts a flurry of fish every so often. If you need ideas for other parks in our area, search for TMoM’s Parks and Playground directory on our site. You will never run out of new places to explore!


Going out to eat is always a treat for mom, but sometimes isn’t as fun when you have rambunctious little ones. Lucky for you, we have two directories on our website that can help: Our Kids Eat Free Directory lists restaurants that offer discounts each day of the week, and our Family-Friendly Restaurants directory lists restaurants where you won’t be the only ones with food, napkins, and toys all over the floor by the time you leave! Some of our favorite restaurants in Clemmons include Breakfastime, Clemmons Kitchen, Panera, Moe’s, Mediterraneo, East Coast Wings, Mi Pueblo, and Villa Grill.


If you are not already involved in a group, this can be an excellent idea for your children, and also for the moms. Kids get to interact with other kids their own age, and mom gets some adult time. We love all the local MOPS groups for mothers of preschoolers, and MOMSNext groups for moms with older kids. Kindermusik is so much fun for children and also a great place for moms to meet new friends as well. Visit Triad Moms on Main and click on our “Mom Groups” directory to find groups meeting near you! Enjoy some family fun, and be sure to sign up for TMoM’s newsletter at TriadMomsOnMain.com to stay in the loop with local happenings!

Chop the onion, pepper and 1-2 jalapenos, and sauté with a tablespoon of olive oil. Meanwhile, slice the chicken breasts, tomato / tomatoes, avocado, and drain / rinse the can of black beans. Once the onion, pepper and jalapeno mixture has cooked for a few minutes, add the sliced chicken and the fajita seasoning pack to another pan and cook on medium heat until cooked through.



What you’ll need for a 3 serving dinner: • 2 chicken breasts • 1 onion • 1 pepper • 1 packet Fajita (or taco) seasoning • 1 avocado • 1-2 fresh jalapenos (optional) • 1 can black beans • 1 tomato OR 1 pack cherry tomatoes • 1 head of Bibb lettuce (sometimes referred to as Boston or Butter lettuce) • Other optional toppings, like cheese, sour cream, salsa, etc.

While the onion/ pepper mixture and chicken are cooking, lay out the Bibb lettuce on plates as ‘cups’ and fill with your toppings. Once the onion/pepper mixture and chicken are done cooking, add to your lettuce ‘cups’ and enjoy! Pair with salsa and chips…and a margarita, of course!



Growing up, my grandparents always had the most beautiful vegetable garden. From sowing seeds to daily harvesting, I have many memories of examining their early morning bounty every summer when we would come to visit. I often remember being barefoot in their kitchen watching my grandma cook our favorites for dinner and snacking on perfectly ripened pickled veggies. You see, with a garden of their size you simply had no choice but to pickle the vegetables that you felt were coming out of your ears. Onions, peppers, carrots, you name it. I loved spending time with them, telling stories and making memories while biting into sweet, but spicy, home-grown vegetables. Pickling veggies is not only an easy process but is the perfect way to make do with the copious amount of farm or home grown vegetables we come to know and love during the summer months. Find some cans and save some for yourself or share with your neighbors! Recipe yields 2, 16-ounce mason jars of pickled vegetables. INGREDIENTS • 10 ounces fresh vegetables (peppers, onions, okra, etc.) • 2⁄3 cup rice vinegar • 2⁄3 cup apple cider vinegar • 1⁄3 cup granulated white sugar

• 2 tablespoons kosher salt • 1 cup water • 2 mint sprigs • ¼ cup shallot • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper

DIRECTIONS 1. Divide vegetables (either cut or whole) and mint sprigs between two, 16-ounce mason jars. 2. Combine all of the remaining ingredients in a pot and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. 3. Remove from heat and let cool for 10 minutes. Pour over vegetables and mint sprigs. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and let chill for 2 days. Store, covered in a refrigerator up to 2 months.

Roast chicken may have been put on the map after Meghan Markle’s engagement, but this dish is a classic in my arsenal. Whether it’s a simple weeknight dinner for your family or a part of your next dinner party, you cannot go wrong! It may seem intimidating to roast an entire chicken, but fear not. The recipe is simple and requires a whole chicken and a few pantry staples. Once you have mastered the technique, it’s easy to play with different herbs and spices -- think rosemary, lemon and garlic in the summer or leek, garlic and fennel in the winter. You can also add chopped vegetables beneath your bird for additional flavor and an instant side dish. INGREDIENTS • 1, 5-6 pound whole chicken • Kosher salt • Freshly ground pepper • 1 large bunch fresh thyme • 1 lemon, halved • 1 head garlic, cut in half crosswise

• 2 tablespoons butter, melted • 1 large yellow onion, thickly sliced • 4 carrots cut into 2-inch chunks • 1 bulb fennel, tops removed and cut into wedges • Olive oil

DIRECTIONS 1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 2. Remove chicken giblets and rinse chicken inside and out. Remove any excess fat and pat the bird dry. Stuff the cavity with thyme, both halves of lemon and garlic. Brush the outside of the chicken with butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Tie the legs together with butcher string and tuck the wing tips under the body of the chicken. Place the onions, fennel and carrots into mixing bowl and toss with salt, pepper and olive oil. Spread around the bottom of the roasting pan and place the chicken on top. 3. Roast chicken for 1 ½ hours, or until the juices run clear. Remove the chicken and vegetables to a platter and cover with aluminum foil for about 20 minutes. Slice the chicken onto platter and serve with roasted vegetables.



Fall is here and while pumpkin spice is everything nice, apple cider is my fall favorite. Make this batch as big or as small as you want. It is the perfect way to warm up on a crisp evening. You can even add a little caramel flavored vodka for a yummy adult beverage. Enjoy and stay warm, friends!

• 10-12 medium apples, assorted varieties • 2 oranges, quartered • 4 cinnamon sticks

• 1 tablespoon whole cloves • 16 cups water • ½ cup maple syrup

DIRECTIONS 1. Add apples and oranges to a large stockpot and cover with water leaving 1 to 2 inches from the top of the pot. 2. Heat ingredients over high heat until it reaches a simmer. Reduce to medium-low temperature, cover and simmer for 2 hours, or until apples are completely soft. 3. Using a fine mesh strainer, or a cheese cloth, strain all solids pressing them against the strainer to release liquids. Discard the solids. 4. Stir in maple syrup to sweeten. 5. Serve warm from pot or let come to room temperature and transfer to sealed pitcher and refrigerate for up to 5 days.



Is there anything more Southern than Pimento Cheese? Whether it is smeared on a cracker or part of a sandwich I love this classic recipe. Toss together right before the big game on TV or pack with you for a tailgate. I’ll be honest in saying as a kid, the thought of pimento cheese made me squirm, but as an adult I love its simplicity and versatility. If you’re like me and are a fan, I hope you take a quick minute to whip this recipe up -- it’s delicious! INGREDIENTS • 1⁄3 cup mayonnaise • 1 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese • 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese • ½ (4 oz) of 1 package cream cheese




• 3 tablespoons diced pimentos • 2 teaspoons grated onion • ¼ teaspoon salt • ¼ teaspoon pepper

DIRECTIONS 1. Add all ingredients to a large bowl. 2. Beat with an electric hand mixer or stir until well mixed. 3. Serve with Club crackers or between two pieces of white bread.

I am loving everything in the Magnolia Table cookbook. If you have not made this purchase I highly recommend all of Joanna’s recipes. From breakfast to dessert and everything in between, all of the recipes I have tried are equally delicious. As I have worked my way through the recipes I look forward to sharing them with family, friends and you all of course. Jo Jo’s homemade biscuits are buttery, flakey and make the perfect breakfast indulgence or bread item for your Sunday supper. I even made them into a perfect strawberry shortcake as a sweet treat (per Joanna’s recipe in the back of the book). Enjoy a slow morning and take the time to make these biscuits -- you won’t regret it! INGREDIENTS • 4 cups self-rising flour, plus more for your work surface • 2 tablespoons baking powder • 1 teaspoon baking soda • ¾ pound (3 sticks) salted butter, cold, cut into ½-inch pieces or grated • 2 large eggs, beaten, plus 1 for brushing • 1 ½ cups buttermilk, or as needed, plus 1 tablespoon for brushing DIRECTIONS 1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and baking soda. Add the butter and use a pastry blender to cut the butter into the flour until pieces are even and about the size of peas. 2. Stir in the beaten eggs with a wooden spoon until combined. Stir in 1 ½ cups buttermilk until the dough comes together into a sticky mass. If it is too dry, add more buttermilk 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing after each addition, until it reaches the correct consistency. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to overnight. 3. Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 4. Scrape the dough onto a floured surface. Use your floured hands to press into a round disk, roughly 14 inches across and about ½ inch thick. 5. Use a floured 2-¾ inch round cutter to cut out about 20 biscuits. If necessary, collect and pat out scraps of dough to cut more biscuits. 6. Transfer the biscuits to the prepared baking sheet, arranging them so that they are all touching. 7. In a small dish, beat together the remaining egg and 1 tablespoon buttermilk. Brush the mixture on top of the biscuits. 8. Bake until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool slightly in the pan on a rack. **Biscuits are best the day they are made and ideally fresh out of the oven. Serve with jam of your choice or gravy, if desired. Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two days.

336-978-0816 Cell | cwrights@clemmons.org What’s the best advice you’ve ever received? Never give up.

What’s something we would never guess about you? I’m typically pretty quiet and laid back but when it comes to sports or games, I’m overly competitive. What is your most unusual talent? I would say singing, but it’s unusual because of just how bad I am at it. What was your favorite toy as a kid? My grandmother bought me a yellow duck stuffed animal for my first Easter. I still had it well into my adulthood until it started falling apart.


336-601-8789 Cell | jwait@clemmons.org What’s the best advice you’ve ever received? “Conquer yourself rather than the world.” I’m still working on it. What was your favorite toy as a kid? My motorcycle. I got my first one when I was in kindergarten, and I loved riding the trails on our farm when I was a kid.


614-404-2111 Cell | mbarson@clemmons.org What’s something we would never guess about you? I’m a Bravo fanatic - I love all Real Housewives franchises and have since season one of the original “Real Housewives of Orange County”. My favorite RH franchise right now is Atlanta and I’m incredibly excited about the next season of New York. I enjoy coming up with tag lines for me and my friends and can quote or attribute nearly any line to the appropriate real housewife. Not only is this the only show I watch on TV (because I don’t actually like watching television that much), but I also listen to a Podcast that recaps each and every episode. If I had to write a tagline for Clemmons I would say, “Council members may come and go, but Clemmons will always thrive.” My own might be, “I’m a smart cookie and know how to bake them, too.” What’s the best advice you’ve ever received? If you’re not tired at the end of the day then you didn’t work hard enough. Maybe not the best advice, but certainly the advice I live by day to day. My goal each day is to maximize it. I work to feel as though each day had a sense of both accomplishment and joy in it.


| ForsythMags.com

336-413-8507 Cell sbinkley@clemmons.org

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received? It’s better to be an hour early than 5 minutes late. What was your favorite toy as a kid? Tonka trucks


336-816-4712 Cell | mcameron@clemmons.org What’s something we would never guess about you? I speak Turkish What is your most unusual talent? I can bark like a seal What was your favorite toy as a kid? A Madam Alexander doll. I would spend hours making clothes for her out of scarves and scraps of fabric. What’s the best advice you’ve ever received? Go to college and study something useful. I majored in French…. Don’t know how useful that is except on vacations and to order a good meal in a French restaurant.


336-749-0849 Cell mrogers@clemmons.org

What is something that we would never guess about you? That I love golf, but it has yet to love me back. What is your most unusual talent? Previously was able to climb telephone poles with “belt and hooks,” old school, now they have to have a bucket truck! What was your favorite toy as a kid?
