From the Editor

Dear Readers, Why a magazine on life in Lewisville-Clemmons? The better question…why not? This community is a thriving and growing area that is minutes away from some of the best Forsyth County has to offer! With the majority of our team calling Lewisville or Clemmons home, we know the value of this community firsthand! We know the spirit of community is alive and well in Lewisville and Clemmons! We are thrilled to bring you the 2nd issue of Forsyth Community: Celebrating Lewisville-Clemmons Life! This issue is almost 40 pages longer than our debut issue, a testament to the positive feedback we’ve received. In 2014, after a road trip with our core team, the idea for Forsyth Community was born. But, after our first issue debuted in January of 2015, we realized that this magazine became so much more than what we had envisioned. It wasn’t simply a magazine for the citizens of Lewisville and Clemmons. It was a relocation guide. It was a visitor’s guide. It was a resource and reference tool. We have taken the feedback we’ve received throughout the year and, in the 2016 issue, we have tried to make this issue not only bigger, but an even more powerful tool.

If you’re a resident of Lewisville or Clemmons…we’ve got tons of great information about our community including details about Clemmons Community Day (page 44) and annual events to look forward to (page 34-35). We’ve also listed all the government resources you may need to reference from time to time (pages 92 and 94). And don’t forget…you can always tell a Clemmons-native (pages 88). If you’re working in Lewisville or Clemmons…we really hope you’re a member of the Lewisville-Clemmons Chamber, but if you’re not, learn how to join (page 46). As you can see from our Lewisville-Clemmons Chamber Directory, you’d be in good company (pages 48-51). We’ve brought you all this great information and much more! As a part of the Forsyth Magazines family (monthly publications, Forsyth Woman and Forsyth Family and biannual publication, Forsyth Woman Engaged!), Forsyth Community is designed with the spirit of local community in mind! We love what we do, and it’s truly our honor to bring you this magazine. We hope you will enjoy it, and be sure to let our advertisers know that their investments in this publication were worthwhile! We can’t do it without their support!

With that said: If you’re visiting Lewisville or Clemmons…WOW, are you in for a treat! There’s so much to see and do here, including places to visit in the surrounding area. You won’t want to miss Tanglewood (read about it on page 68) and, hopefully, you have made plans for our annual Festival of Lights (page 30). You’ll also want to check out some of our local wineries (page 32), and get an overview of must-visit places (page 26). Check out some of our great local restaurants (pages 66-67), and learn some fun facts about North Carolina (page 70).

Please enjoy this issue of Forsyth Community, and read our monthly magazines as well! We value and appreciate your feedback as we begin thinking of the 2017 edition. Your suggestions and feedback will always be appreciated. Please email our project manager Denise at Denise@ForsythMags.com, and if your business is interested in advertising in the 2017 issue, please email Advertising@ForsythMags.com! Thank you for your support!

Keela Johnson

Warm regards, If you’re moving to Lewisville or Clemmons…Stacy’s got you covered when it comes to tips on planning your move (page 36) and, as a new resident to Clemmons, Denise can fill you in on some of the things she’s learned (page 38). We’ve also got a list of churches and schools ready for you (84-85 and pages 72-73, respectively). Gizmo the Golden’s even chimed in to give you a dog’s perspective (page 86)!

Welcome

to Clemmons. We are committed to making the Village of Clemmons a special community to live in, work in or visit. Discover the southern charm of a small town coupled with the modern amenities of a growing, thriving community. We take great pride in providing something for everyone. Enjoy a quality meal at one of many restaurants, and stumble across that hard to find specialty item at one of our merchants. There are plenty of choices for everyone. The Village of Clemmons has a vibrant business community with more than 1,000 registered businesses. Enjoy the great outdoors with more than 540 holes of golf to play within a 20-mile radius. Enjoy a summer day of swimming at the Tanglewood Park Aquatic Center. If you are feeling a bit more adventurous, experience Tanglewood’s 1,150foot long BMX track with various size jumps, join your friends for a venture on one of many mountain bike trails or escape the hustle and bustle with a guided horseback trail ride. Fortunately, you don’t have to try to squeeze everything into one day. The area offers accommodation options for every family size and budget. Selections range from three hotels to a 44-campsite RV campground to a historic bed and breakfast. The Village of Clemmons also has full-service medical care facilities in case of need. And for your four-legged family member, Tanglewoof Dog Park is located in neighboring Tanglewood Park and a great 2.3-acre space for your best friend to run and have fun! There are several veterinary services throughout the community. Even if you were only planning to pass through or visit, be warned that you may be tempted to make Clemmons a permanent establishment for your family. Clemmons is a desirable town to relocate with low unemployment rates, low tax rates and above average median household incomes. It is home to West Forsyth High School, the largest high school in Forsyth County, which was ranked as one of the top 20 high schools in the

state of NC as of the 2015 rankings. For these reasons and more, the Clemmons zip code was named in 2015 as one of the hottest zip codes in the Triad for real estate. Located only a stone’s throw from Winston-Salem and a gentle drive from the Yadkin Valley Wine Country, Clemmons truly is “home base” for so much to see and do. We welcome you to experience all of the aforementioned, but the true definition of this Village is apparent when you experience the heart of our community. Attend one of our home football games, and witness the crowds of passionate students and parents. Join them after the game as cars line up for a hot doughnut and other local treats to continue socializing by reliving the excitement of the winning plays. Attend a performance by the local children’s theater, and sit among the packed audience of proud parents, siblings and friends in the newly established black box theater. Take a walk along Village Point Greenway to witness a kid learning to ride his or her bike for the first time. Spend some time on the pier, and see the excitement and awe of the child that reels in his or her very first fish. Whether you’re looking for a place to visit, live or build a business, know that you are welcome in the Village. Utilize our hospitality, and take in all the wonderful amenities that Clemmons has to offer. Please feel free to call or stop by the Town Hall, and let us know how we may be able to better serve you.

Executive Office Suites & Event Center Where the Past Inspires the Success of the Present

estled in the heart of Clemmons, the Historic Broyhill stands proudly just as it has since 1925. Originally built as the much-needed new school for area children in grades one through 11, the beautiful, white-columned building still exudes the same charm and stately character that has been cherished by the community since its doors first opened. Local generations attended classes here (both Clemmons Elementary and Clemmons

16

Forsyth Community | ForsythMags.com

High School) until 1956 when the last class graduated. When the school officially opened in 1925, it welcomed 500 students into 16 shiny new classrooms which included science rooms, a music room, library and auditorium. Not surprisingly, girls were encouraged to study domestic notions such as cooking and sewing while boys were taught agriculture and manual training, but the high school also featured lessons in French, Latin and Spanish.

Since much of everyday life in the 1920s centered on family farming, classes were held in eight-month sessions, so farm children could be at home to lend a necessary hand during the seasons of planting and harvesting. As the beloved school continued to grow, the community rallied behind fundraising efforts to build a school gymnasium in 1940 and, by 1950, an athletic field was also in place that included a football stadium and baseball diamond – a tribute to the commitment of the Clemmons community to build and nurture what their children needed and what would, for many years, bring neighbors together. But, times changed and traditions shifted. Despite its impeccable architectural standards, the building was slated for demolition in 1981. Happily, with a passion for the building’s distinguished history and an eye on future prospects for the location, Ed Broyhill purchased the structure and restored it as Edgar B. Furniture Plantation which included several other furniture-based entities as well. Then, after even more extensive renovations in 2006, the concept of a business and conference center emerged with the hope of providing local businesses the opportunity to house their offices in luxury suites that boasted both historical and community significance. Today, more than 40 businesses call the Historic Broyhill home, with the Lewisville-Clemmons Chamber of Commerce appropriately occupying the building’s front office suite. Just minutes away from downtown Winston-Salem, the center is an ideal happy medium between bustling business and a quiet, close-knit neighborhood; and the same spirit of growth and building for the future that filled those original school walls still radiates each business day. Besides general office suites there are also small and large conference rooms available to businesses and civic groups for private meetings. With the renovations completed in such a fashion that remained true to the original 1920s structure, the décor of this Clemmons landmark – still marked by beautiful chandeliers, stunning artwork and a quiet courtyard – also entices local residents to rent the Historic Broyhill for a host of special events, including unforgettable weddings that bring families and friends together. It seems these walls were indeed destined for great things! The historic Broyhill Office Suites and Conference Center is located at 3540 Clemmons Road in Clemmons.

The area is beautiful -- our Lewisville campus is actually a National Wildlife Refuge – and everything in Forsyth County is so convenient to us. It takes fewer than 10 minutes to get to most of the area’s major landmarks and prominent employers. Having a school of this caliber so close to the area’s major employers can help draw talented candidates here, which further enriches the Clemmons/Lewisville/Forsyth County area. Forsyth County is a great place in which to live and work.”

Full Moon Oyster Bar A group of folks in Clemmons decided in 2003 that there was a strong need for a restaurant that served really fresh seafood in a place where all of their friends could come, socialize and have a good time. The common tabletop seating was scrapped for a large wrap around bar where customers could sit and enjoy everyone's company while eating some of the best seafood on the planet. “Come as a stranger, leave as a friend” is Full Moon Oyster Bar’s mantra, and it works! "We took a traditional oyster bar and up-scaled the heck out of it," said President Randy Russell. "We brought in Chef Ty Carethers who added his signature dishes to our steamed and grilled menu. You will find not only gulf oysters, but oysters from all over the world at the Full Moon Oyster Bar. On any given day, you can sample oysters harvested from Canada, Alaska and the New England area when in season. The briny difference is amazing, and diners can decide which ones are their favorites. Each weekday night features something special. We are a small-business-type restaurant, so we don't have to serve only the grouper, tuna, mahi mahi type staples. We like fish not normally seen on everyone else's menu such as tile fish, monk fish, cobia, etc. Our fish is cut from the bone from whole fish and is always fresh."

Gwyn Electrical “Founded by local men and women in 1972, Gwyn Electrical, Plumbing, Heating and Cooling was pioneered as the original ‘tripletrade’ contractor to bring total home comfort to the residents of the Piedmont/Triad,” said Marketing Coordinator Stacey Mitchell. “Still employee-owned, today, the Gwyn team provides the same courteous, friendly and professional services that the company was built on and maintains the A+ Accredited Business rating with the Better Business Bureau of Northwest North Carolina. Whether it's saving the day with urgent repairs, saving you money and resources through proactive plans or designing and building a new electrical, plumbing or heating and cooling system to meet even the most challenging customized requirements, we've got you covered!

We believe the people of Clemmons/Forsyth County are very much integrated into the life-force of the type of company we have become; without the support of this community, we wouldn't be able to stand strong today after more than 40 years of business. We are rooted in a culture to provide trust, peace-of-mind, safety, to deliver the most reliable and quality workmanship available and to honor God through support of local community development programs.”

B cket List

for Visiting Clemmons By Robin White Ellis

N

o matter the name given to it, nearly everyone has some manner of a bucket list consisting of things they want to do or places they wish to see. It may be in the form of an actual written epistle or simply a mental checklist. The Village of Clemmons is chock-full of marvelous items to add to anyone's list! From a historical standpoint, the Clemmons Village Hall stores a local treasure. Edwin T. Clemmons, great-grandson of the town's founder, was in the stagecoach business. His last coach was his largest...a nine passenger Concord Coach that he named "Hattie Butner" for his wife, Harriet Butner Clemmons. This stagecoach has been beautifully restored and is proudly displayed in the Village Hall. For a lovely, serene experience, a visit to the Village Point Lake Greenway is a must! This trail around the lake is three quarters of a mile consisting of pedestrian and bicycle friendly paths, beautiful wooded areas and a stocked lake with a fishing pier. The Greenway is part of a much larger plan that will connect Clemmons West to Tanglewood Park, Jerry Long YMCA and Clemmons Medical Center. Speaking of Tanglewood Park, no one visiting or residing in Clemmons should overlook this gem! Tanglewood consists of 1,100 acres of stunning pastures, rolling hills and breathtaking forests. While the picturesqueness is unquestionable, there is also so much to do while visiting! To name a few, enjoy hiking, horseback riding, tennis courts, boating, mountain biking, the swimming pool complex, the Arboretum and the gardens. The walking paths alone are breathtaking! If you choose to stay overnight, there are a few options, including the amazing Manor House Bed and Breakfast Inn and a quaint guesthouse. If you choose a more rustic overnight stay, opt for one of the four available cottages or 44 RV campsites.

Tanglewood also boasts two full golf courses – the Championship Course and Reynolds Course; these courses are highlighted by the beauty of the park. You may also enjoy a driving range and Par-3 course. Another charming aspect of Tanglewood is the dog park, delightfully called “Tanglewoof.” Within this 2.3-acre fenced area, dogs may legally run off-leash. One section is set aside for small dogs, separated from a larger portion for big dogs. Tanglewoof includes water fountain bowls for active pooches (and water fountains for the humans they own), benches, dog waste stations and is free to the public. For the avid anglers, a plethora of fishing options resides in Clemmons, from the pier at Village Point Lake to Skilpot Lake, Mallard Lake and many others. Mallard Lake is open year round daily from seven in the morning to dusk and includes a playground, picnic tables with charcoal grills, and pedal boats. Snacks are available during concession hours. Clemmons is proud to be the home of the largest hand-made cookie company in the world! Mrs. Hanes' Moravian Cookie Factory is another must while in Clemmons. Every cookie is hand rolled and hand cut for an individual, caring service to their many patrons. They make around 10 million Moravian cookies every year! On-site tours are also available. The Village of Clemmons represents a rich history of family and culture. The aforementioned is merely a portion of the “bucket list” delights offered in Clemmons!

By Lindsay Craven The arts are an integral part of a happy and healthy community.

Shallowford Town Square Shallowford Town Square is the focal point of Lewisville’s downtown. It includes a large playground and pavilion that can be rented for weddings, reunions, parties and other events.

By Vonda Henderson

ne of the best ways to get into the holiday mood is to tour Tanglewood’s Festival of Lights. This year celebrates the 24th season of a spectacular show of lights, imagination and music that has grown through the years. Jessica Sanders, marketing and events manager, Forsyth County Parks and Recreation, shared news and background for the festival through the years and offers a glimpse into this year’s show to peak your interest.

O

What are the major changes in this year's festival versus last year? We have several new, large displays this year that guests are sure to notice. Also, we are excited to announce Lowes Foods as the new sponsor of Festival of Lights. Lowes Foods will be bringing back the marshmallow cooking experience at the Gift Village, right outside the Gift Shop. Overall, how has the festival evolved through the years? Festival of Lights is always changing and improving. We take our responsibility seriously and are always looking for ways to make the entrance processes more efficient, the route more impressive and the Gift Village experience more enjoyable. We have come a long way from the first Festival of Lights 24 years ago which included just a few light displays. What was the average nightly attendance last year? Attendance varies greatly from night to night – depending mainly on proximity to the holidays and weather. Thursdays through Sundays are extremely busy, so we suggest that visitors come Monday through Wednesday nights. Last year, on our busiest night, we had approximately 2,300 vehicles.

30

Forsyth Community | ForsythMags.com

What was the total attendance last year? What is the average increase year to year? Last season's attendance was more than 280,000 guests, up 14% from last year and the best year since 2007. We are excited and are anticipating an increase in attendance this year as well. How many lights are used? More than a million LED lights are used throughout the Festival. How long does it take to develop a new display from concept to final? What are the inspirations? Light displays take several months to produce. When looking for new displays, we often look at what we currently have and find new displays to complement an existing area. Other times, we totally branch out and find a new element to introduce. This year will be a mix of both. What is your favorite display? I love rolling down my windows and driving under the Jingle Bells display. Located near Skilpot Lake, this display features original musical compositions by students from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts School of Music and Technology. What is the crowd pleaser in your opinion?As for displays, our A Perfect Drive display is one of our original displays and a crowd favorite. It is on the golf course near the Tanglewood Golf Clubhouse. The Gift Village is also a huge draw to the Festival. We have the Gift Shop, housed in Tanglewood's Red Barn, where vendors and local crafters display items for sale. Just outside the barn, we have Santa and Mrs. Claus, concessions and local school groups performing.

What are some tips for getting the most out of a visit? First, plan to come on Monday-Wednesday nights to avoid extremely long wait times. Before you leave home, put on your tackiest holiday garb (extra points if something blinks and/or has a musical feature), grab a big thermos of hot chocolate and your favorite festive snacks and get ready for a fun night! Once in line, tune to 99.5 WMAG to get into the holiday spirit. Spread a little cheer to our hardworking Forsyth County Sheriff's Office deputies and Front Gate staff as you enter the show. Turn off your lights and drive slowly through the route, taking in all your favorite displays and discovering new ones. About 3/4 of the way through the route, you will arrive at the Gift Village. Take a right into the parking lot and make your first stop the Gift Shop to do some of your holiday shopping. After that, share your gift list with Santa and Mrs. Claus while listening to local musical groups performing. Make sure to grab a bite to eat from Bullzhead Brandz and roast marshmallows with Lowes Foods! Enjoy the rest of the Festival as you wind out through the back entrance.

The Festival of Lights dates and times for the 2015 season are: November 21, 2015 through January 3, 2016 from 6pm to 11pm nightly Rates: Family: cars | vans | trucks - $15 Commercial: vans | limos | mini-buses - $35 Motorcoaches | buses - $100 For more information, or for the 2016 dates and pricing, visit the website at forsyth.cc/Parks/Tanglewood. Get your holiday spirit going, come visit a community treasure -- Tanglewood Festival of Lights!

ewisville and Clemmons sit at the gateway to the Yadkin Valley Wine Country. For decades, the Yadkin Valley was a predominantly tobacco-growing region. However, as tobacco farming and cigarette manufacturing in the area declined, some growers have turned to winemaking. During the past 20 years the Yadkin Valley has managed to adapt several varieties of European grapes to grow in the soil and climate of the area. Today, the 1.4-million acre Yadkin Valley, just west of Winston-Salem, is home to exquisite vineyards and wineries and was approved as North Carolina's first American Viticultural Area.

Events

By Shannon Ford

T

he Village of Clemmons is noted for its spirit of community, offering visitors and residents a variety of fun activities and events to look forward to throughout the year – 2016 will be no exception!

Monster Dash and Goblin Hop Storm troopers, butterflies and ninjas, oh my! The annual Monster Dash and Goblin Hop provides an opportunity for children to dress in their Halloween costumes and “goblin hop” along the Village Point Greenway. Local businesses and organizations line the greenway with various kid’s activities and games. The activities come in all shapes and sizes. Kids enjoy hammering golf tees in pumpkins, crafting a mummy apple, shooting some hoops, tossing bean bags, spoon racing and learning new dance moves. Each table provides a giveaway to the kids including pencils, Frisbees, spider rings, temporary tattoos, tote bags, rulers, party favors and coupons to local businesses. Once the kids complete the “dash” to each table, a special treat awaits at the end. This is a free event and parking is available at Morgan Elementary School. The 2016 event is scheduled for Sunday, October 23rd from 2-4pm.

Movie Night in the Village Village of Clemmons’ “Movie Night in the Village” series was piloted in 2015 and was met with great success. Movie Night in the Village presents family friendly movies projected on the big screen at the front fields of the Jerry Long YMCA, free of charge. Moviegoers bring blankets or chairs. Each movie night incorporates a way of giving back. In 2015, our first movie night included the Clemmons Food Pantry accepting donated non-perishable food items. During the last event of the season, the feature film was Toy Story, and the Clemmons Rotary accepted new donated toys for the Hand-in-Hand project that provides for local children in need. Although the movie begins at sunset, the fun always begins at least one hour prior to dusk. Kids enjoy the Jerry Long YMCA playgrounds as well as outdoor games such as kickball, nine square and volleyball led by Y leadership. There are always food concessions for purchase. Kids often line up and look forward to Kona Ice, and parents enjoy skipping dinner preparations that night to purchase a combo hot dog meal from Boone Doggies. The Jerry Long YMCA usually has a surprise for the kids whether it’s the much sought after glow jewelry or free popcorn. The 2016 Movie Night in the Village series is expanding thanks to generous sponsors. 2016 Dates: Friday, June 3rd Friday, July 22nd Saturday, September 17th

Pedal and Metal Fest Each year, the Village of Clemmons hosts a Pedal and Metal Fest on a Saturday in May. The event has featured bike and helmet checks, several scheduled bike rides for all ages, Touch-A-Truck, kid’s crafts, balloon animal artistry, face painting and a bike/trike parade. The event was created to promote bicycle safety and healthy living; however, in 2015, the event expanded to include the Touch-A-Truck portion to allow kids and adults to sit inside, touch and learn all about vehicles they usually don’t have the opportunity to be up close and personal. Community partners offer interactive kid’s activities. Clemmons Bicycle is a major sponsor of the event, leading guided bike rides to teach skills and precautions to ride a bicycle safely. The event is held at Morgan Elementary School and Village Point Greenway, the Village’s first greenway. The greenway consists of 3,900 linear feet of greenway around Village Point Lake and a segment adjacent to Frank Morgan Elementary School. The Village Point Lake also boasts a fishing pier that allows urban community fishing opportunities for residents to fish a stocked lake throughout the year. The greenway is open daily from dawn until dusk. As the Village Point Area continues to develop, a series of greenway connectors will link all 124 acres of the Novant Health development and begin connecting neighborhoods and other destinations throughout the Village incrementally. The 2016 event will be held on May 21st. Adults and children are encouraged to bring their bikes or trikes. The event is free of charge. Save the Date!

Annual Tree Lighting The Clemmons Annual Tree Lighting returned in 2015 in coordination with a partnership with the Friends for the Library of the Clemmons Branch of the Forsyth County Library System. The community gathers around the tree for caroling and the ceremonial lighting of the tree. Each year, a family within in the community is selected to light the tree. Join your neighbors for caroling, cookies and a visit from Santa. The 2016 date is Tuesday, December 6th.

To improve the Village of Clemmons’ marketing and tourism planning, we have developed a survey for visitor’s to give feedback. We would greatly appreciate 10 to 15 minutes of your time to hear about your experiences, opinions, and suggestions. Please enter contact information to receive a thank you gift from the Village of Clemmons. (while supplies last). Visit DiscoverClemmons.org to take the survey. Forsyth Community | ForsythMags.com

Planning Your Move S o, you’re moving; piece of cake right? It can be. As a veteran of more than 20 moves, I have a few tips that should make this a little less painful. These suggestions are, in truth, a result of the many mistakes I’ve made. With this list and a little luck, your move will be a breeze. 1. Make Two Lists – One will list all the items you know you’ll need as soon as you arrive; for example, a coffee maker, alarm clock, phone chargers, medical records, school records and prescriptions. Pack these in a box that will travel with you. The other is a list of what you will need to make this move happen; like this article along with boxes, tape, packing paper and bubble wrap, trash bags, colored Avery labels and giant sharpies. 2. Purge – This is a great time to ditch your old stuff or stuff someone else could be using. Be ruthless, ask yourself “Is this something I really want to pack, move and unpack?” Begin this as soon as you find out you are moving. Note: Get donation receipts for tax time. For large items, call the Amvets and National Kidney Foundation who will pick them up your location. 3. Choosing Your Movers – If you hire a mover, interview at least three. Most movers will come to your home to take an inventory and then provide you with an estimate (with and without their packing services). If you are moving yourself, see items 5, 6 and 7! 4. Once You Pick a Date – Go to the post office or online to usps.com to have your mail forwarded. This can take up to a week. Call all of your accounts with your change of address and move date. Contact your children’s new schools to make sure you have everything you need to get them registered (before it is packed).

5. Packing is Like Dieting – It’s all about portion control. Avoid plastic tubs, you may be tempted to over-pack them; they’ll be too heavy and often crack when stacked. Instead, invest in small cardboard boxes. We prefer Lowes small boxes at 74 cents each. Also, grab a half dozen medium or large boxes for linens only. Allow the kids to help pack their boxes, and decorate them with crayons and stickers. They will be more excited about the move, and their boxes will be easy to spot! 6. Pick the Worst First – Begin with the garage. Use colored Avery labels and sharpies to label the boxes, a different color for each room. Stack these boxes to one side to create a staging area for everything else. 7. Moving Yourself? -- Hire “muscle.” Two Men and a Truck moved our furniture, washer and dryer. They’re great! They charge by the hour plus a small fee for the truck. Moving the remaining boxes ourselves via U-Haul saved us quite a lot of money. Note: Most U-Haul locations can help you hire muscle, too. 8. Moving Day – Send kids to a friend’s house; you’ll need to focus on this busy day. Stuff bed linen and dirty laundry in trash bags to be washed and ready upon your arrival. Be sure to grab that “important stuff” box that travels with you. 9. Hire a Merry Maid – Never had a cleaning service? Now is the time. At this point, it is not a luxury but a necessity. You’ll be too tired after loading the trucks to clean the old house, and you’ll want to move your things into a clean house. Hiring someone to clean now is money well spent. 10. Last Things – Change your address at your bank, and don’t forget the DMV. In North Carolina, you have 60 days to update both your driver’s license/ID card and vehicle registration.

By Brooke Eagle

he older I get, the more value I put on living a healthy lifestyle. These 12 tips involve physical, mental and emotional health and well-being, because living a healthy lifestyle is definitely not limited to physical health. 1.Drink lots of water. I know, I know…you hear this ALL the time. But seriously, drinking water is so important. It keeps you hydrated, keeps you feeling (and looking) good and keeps your appetite in check. Best of all, it has no calories! 2.Limit caloric heavy drinks. This goes without saying, but do your best to limit alcohol, soda and other sugar-filled drinks. 3.Get moving! 30 minutes – 1 hour of exercise, 4-6 days a week is ideal. Make sure it’s something you enjoy; if you don’t enjoy running – don’t run! The options are endless: weight lifting, interval training, leisure walking, Zumba, yoga, Pilates, cycling…the list goes on! Try different things when you get burned out on one form of exercise. 4.REST & RELAX! Just as important as the exercise aspect (if not more) is your R&R time! Your body needs rest and relaxation. It could be a bubble bath, a massage, meditation, reading a book…whatever it is, make time for it!! 5.Avoid tanning beds. Self-explanatory, but you’ll be happy when you have beautiful, non-sun-damaged skin years down the road. 6.Make time for things you love. Being “busy” is not the same thing as being productive. If you are finding that you don’t have time for things that are important to you, re-evaluate how you are spending your time. 7.Make time for the people you love. Family and friends are what makes life so special; make time to spend quality time with your loved ones as frequently as possible. 8.Moderation is key! Of course having a healthy diet is important, but it’s unrealistic to think that you’ll never touch another French fry or never take another bite of crème brûlée. Do your best to incorporate lots of protein, vegetables and fruit into your diet but allow a little wiggle room for the occasional dessert. A diet full of foods you don’t enjoy eating is a diet that you absolutely won’t be able to maintain forever. 9.Minimalism. Try to adopt a minimalistic lifestyle. Think really hard about every purchase you are about to make. Do you really need it? Clean out your closets / cabinets / junk drawers every couple of months. I promise, when it’s done, you’ll feel so much better! Less stuff = less stress. 10.Wake up early. Sleeping in too long is a good way to make you feel groggy and unproductive for the entire day. So many productive things can happen first thing in the morning! Take the dog on a walk at Tanglewood, meditate in your back yard, have a peaceful cup (or two) of coffee before anyone else wakes up. 11.Go to bed at a decent hour. Obviously you can’t make #10 happen if you don’t go to bed until 2 am. My parents always told me “nothing good happens after midnight,” and I believe that to be (mostly) true. I know there are some exceptions, but I would be willing to argue that nothing too productive is happening for you during these wee hours of the morning. (No, watching Netflix, scrolling through Facebook and Instagram is definitely not productive). 12. Volunteer. It doesn’t have to consume your life, but make time to volunteer for something you are passionate about. It could be serving on a board of a local organization… helping out at the Clemmons Food Pantry… volunteering at one of our many schools. Lewisville and Clemmons are full of opportunities! I hope you will challenge yourself to adopt at least a couple of these tips into your healthy lifestyle! It’s never too late to make positive changes to the way you are living your life!

The Annual Clemmons Ice Cream Festival By Lisa S.T. Doss

urrounding the community of Clemmons, a buzz containing the words “First Annual Ice Cream Festival” stirred the air in late August. People posted and tweeted, called and shared the news to family and friends, next-door neighbors and even those out of town. Add the words “at Tanglewood Park,” and the two entwined sounded like a great event to bring the community together. On a warm Saturday morning at 9am, cars filed in with guided ease onto the grounds. The circle of tents and the sound of lively instrumental music drew festivalgoers. Whether strangers or friends, people were walking and talking while pushing strollers, holding a child’s hand or a leash of a four-legged friend. Independent children, who didn’t even know each other, clasped hands with the intent of friendship and the promise of an ice cream cone. Drawn to the music under the big canopy, parents followed their children to listen to the Bluegrass Jam musicians. Younger children felt compelled to wiggle, jump or dance together in circles under the broad tent. Supporting a granddaughter or a child's friend, larger numbers gathered when ProDance Academy’s cloggers pounded the stage in simultaneous taps and steps. Along the brick wall and feet away from the tent, there was another sound described as churning and whirling happening. The four competitors, David and Annette Dezarn, James Stewart, Thomas Wayne Davis and Melanie Rowton arrived with the ingredients ready to turn on their machines for the first annual “Ice Cream Freeze Off” at 9am. Before noon, Mayor Nick Nelson, WXII morning news Anchor Kenny Beck and General Manager Stacey Milner of Milner Brothers in Clemmons began judging ice creams flavors such as rich butter pecan, lemon-speculoos, German chocolate and an orange crush sherbet based on the criteria of presentation, taste and texture. “I couldn't believe it; I won,” said Rowton. “You see, I borrowed an ice cream maker from a friend who forgot to include the instructions; so, the night before the contest, I learned how to operate the machine online. I also didn”t read all the instructions for the contestants and thought I had to bring all the ingredients and make it there. When it was done, I didn't think it was hard enough; so, I decided to call it orange crush sherbet. I love that I won my own ice cream maker!" The first annual Clemmons Ice Cream Festival was intended to offer something for everyone. A meet and greet of area businesses such as Novant Health Village Point and the Women Who Care, a Clemmons Community Foundation. If new to the grounds, festivalgoers were able to meet Mousavi Farms, Kieffer Farms and K-9 Doggie Bakery, all vendors of the Tanglewood Park Farmers’ Market. Long lines were centered on events for children. The Rotary Club of Clemmons provided face painting while families made silly faces in Forsyth Magazines’ photo booth. The Jerry Long YMCA offered the athletic element for kids whether they wanted to toss a basketball or hit a floating tee ball. In another direction, children stood in a line and considered the option of sugar or waffle cone while also choosing between six different flavors of Dario ice cream. For many families who attended the festival, children were anxious to offer their own thoughts. “I had fun making the ice cream artwork, face painting, watching the cloggers and eating ice cream,” said Chelsea Newton’s daughter. Like most children, she, too, felt reconnected with old friends and wondered, “when can we go back?” “The public has provided great insight on what we they would like to see at next year’s festival,” said Shannon Ford, marketing and communications director of the Village of Clemmons. “In addition to the individual competition for the title of ‘Best Homemade Ice Cream,’ we'd like to have a professional competition, too. With the help of our community partners, we hope the annual event continues to expand.” In meeting those from the community, farmers’ market sellers and farm vendors, it's always nice to combine great events for the children with awareness to the parents around the theme of an annual Ice Cream Festival.

art of the charm of a small town is the prevalence of unique and fun events that occur throughout the year. This can include movie nights in the summer, pumpkin patches in the fall, holiday gatherings in the winter and charitable runs and walks in the spring. In Clemmons, the Clemmons Community Day has become a favorite event among residents as well as visitors to the area. “The Lewisville-Clemmons Chamber of Commerce’s annual event is a day for our local businesses to promote their services and products to the residents of Clemmons and surrounding areas,” said Joanna Lyall, past president of the Chamber and a Clemmons Community Day committee member. “Not only is this an opportunity for the local businesses to shine, it’s a day of fun and fellowship for friends and neighbors alike to visit, have fun and enjoy being a part of this great community.” Each year, the event grows as more and more people hear about all it has to offer. “With more than 100 vendors, the day consists of music, great food, and activities for kids and parents,” said Lyall. “Held at the Jerry Long Family YMCA, this event has free parking and easy access for all attendees. Michael Roels, the vice president of community service for the Chamber, is the event chair and leads a team of volunteers and generous event sponsors to make this day happen.” A great deal of planning went into the very first Clemmons Community Day celebration, and that hard work and dedication continues year after year in an effort to grow this event. “Clemmons Community Day was specifically coordinated to add to the charm and appeal of the community,” said Lyall. “So many events take place year round, and the chamber wanted to be a part in promoting all that our local businesses bring to the place that we call

home. The atmosphere has always been fun – even when we had rain at the event. Since the event’s inception, the day has grown to include more vendors and activities for all ages. We changed locations several years ago to include the YMCA’s Healthy Kids’ Day. This was a great way to involve more families.” Community is the focus of Clemmons Community Day in more ways than one. “The goal for Clemmons Community Day is to create a sense of community among our local businesses, residents and even new visitors to the area,” said Lyall. “We want to provide a forum for our local businesses to make individuals aware of all the wonderful products and services available right here in their own community. Our hope is for the event to continue to grow and to be a weekend everyone adds to his or her calendar. We also encourage all attendees to bring canned goods to the event to benefit the Clemmons Food Pantry. And, of course, our goal is always to have fun!” Clemmons Community Day is scheduled for Saturday, May 7, 2016. For more information, email lewisvilleclemmonschamber@gmail.com, call 336.970.5100 or visit the website at www.lewisville-clemmons.com. You can also follow the event on Facebook for updates leading up to the event at Clemmons Community Day.

Welcome to Lewisville

I

magine a town where you actually talk to your neighbors. Where you feel safe, know the names of your local sheriff’s deputies and sleep soundly at night because your fire department is one of the best in the state.

A town, where during the summer and fall your family can go to plays, movie nights, concerts and a variety of other events…for free.

Imagine a town where the local government is committed to preserving a small town feel, and you actually have a say-so in your community’s future though the comprehensive plan that reflects the views, wishes and aspirations of its residents. Imagine a town with parks, walking trails, playgrounds, lots of green space and public areas for community and church activities and events. That town is right here in Forsyth County. You know it as Lewisville. Since the town’s inception 25 years ago, our elected officials and residents have been determined to preserve Lewisville’s small town rural character. All of us know that it is important to maintain our heritage where residents feel a sense of belonging and know that their involvement in the decision-making process of the town is not only welcomed, but also encouraged. Through thoughtful and consistent growth management policies, Lewisville judiciously protects this heritage. It is evident every place you go and with every resident with whom you speak. It’s more than a vision, it’s a strong commitment, clearly expressed in our town’s comprehensive plan that is resident-driven and revised every five years. As you drive down our main streets, Shallowford Road on the south side of town and Yadkinville Road on the north, you won’t see fast food restaurants as far as the eye can see or commercial sprawl that has replaced the trees with asphalt. You will see a planned streetscape that blends the old and the new in a way that is respectful to both. Yes, we still have bake sales, chicken stews, car washes, book sales and Saturday afternoon barbeques. It’s still how our community raises money for our civic clubs, churches, volunteer fire fighters, library and, if there is a need, our neighbors when struck by misfortune. Of course, everyone knows about Lewisville’s legendary Fourth of July celebration that draws thousands from surrounding communities; our annual remembrance of veterans at the memorial in Shallowford Square; and, of course, our amazing Christmas Parade where if you can drive it, pull it, push it or walk it and chew gum at the same time, you can be in it. There’s a lot more I can say about our town, but I think you get the picture. I have been privileged to be part of Lewisville’s evolution since 1993, two years after the town was chartered by the legislature. During that time, I have served on the town council with some of the finest individuals I’ve ever met and with whom it’s been my pleasure to work. We have an unspoken rule among council members here in Lewisville, and that is that we can disagree with each other on the issues without being disagreeable or disrespectful. Given the prevailing politics of today, it’s a novel idea, but it has allowed our elected officials to do what’s best for our residents without the political posturing or unproductive partisanship that often gets in the way of good government. Maybe that’s why we’ve been able to accomplish so much through the years. We have a comprehensive plan that our residents help develop; we have a council that is committed to that plan; and we have dozens of residents who volunteer to serve on our committees and boards. I am greatly looking forward to serving as the town’s mayor the next two years. I hope I can live up to the example set by my predecessors. On behalf of the town council and staff, I invite you to come visit Lewisville. Grab a bit to eat, stop by our town hall or spend a few minutes in our parks. From shallow fords to great heights (our town motto), there’s nothing much better than to come home to Lewisville. Best Regards,

Mike Horn 52

A Happening Place: Lewisville 2016 By Vonda Henderson

ewisville has plans for you in 2016; special events for you and your family to look forward to and add to your calendar so that you don’t miss out. Be sure to confirm the date(s) as the events get closer as they are subject to change. Starlight Movie Nights: Making a return engagement, the ever popular Starlight Movie Nights will be April 23rd, July 16th, September 23rd and October 7th. Grab some chairs or blankets, and enjoy a family movie with your neighbors under the stars. Concessions are available including hot dogs, popcorn, drinks and candy. What better way to relax after a busy week? Enjoy a family friendly movie under the stars. Plays: Plan to attend an outdoor play at Shallowford Square on June 3rd-5th and 10th-12th. Other date(s) may be announced later. These productions get better every year. This is an opportunity to introduce your children to the theater in a casual sitting amongst friends and neighbors. Celebrate the talents of your Lewisville community. Outdoor Concerts: Two concert events are planned – May 7th and August 6th. More information will be available at a later date about who will be performing. Street Party: The Street Party is planned for June 25th. More information will be available later in the year, but there will be lots of food available at the food truck vendor stations. Bring your friends and neighbors for a night of music and dancing. Annual Cornhole Tournament: The fourth annual Cornhole Tournament is planned for July 16th at Shallowford Square. The past three events have been great fun, and we expect this one to be even better. As in the past, there will be 16 teams with sign-up on a first come, first served basis. Participants must be 18 years or older. Sign up early and get some practice time in before the big tournament. Prizes and t-shirts will be awarded to the winners. Shalloween Carnival: Get your goblins and ghouls ready! The Shalloween Carnival is scheduled for October 22nd with a rain date of October 29th, if needed. Join the merriment! There will be plenty of games and activities for children up to age 12. Who will you be – A scary monster, a princess, Katniss, Harry Potter, a cowboy, whatever your imagination can dream up? Put on your best costume, and join the costume contest -- maybe you’ll be the special winner for 2016! Tree Lighting Ceremony: The Town of Lewisville and the Lewisville Civic Club will host the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony. Please plan to join the fun at Shallowford Square on December 2nd. As always, there will be lots of music, refreshments and, of course, a visit from Santa to top off the evening’s festivities. This will definitely get you and your family in touch with the Christmas spirit. Lewisville is rich in community-sponsored events, and we hope that you can join us for all of these and other events planned for 2016.

f

rom the moment we turn on our laptops, tablets or smart phones each day – not to mention the good ‘ole home mail delivery – we seem to be bombarded with sales and marketing information from mass merchants and department stores that like to zero in on what they think is the bottom line for consumers – an unbeatable price. But, there’s more to making a purchase than getting the best price. The savvy shopper knows the benefit of something there’s often not enough of these days – customer service. Then, there’s quality – something else wise consumers know to value. If you’re looking for a true shopping experience that, as a bonus, just happens to boost the future and nurture the spirit of your community as a whole, think local. Shopping local has taken off as quite the theme in recent years and with good reason. The benefits to your community – and the guaranteed trickle-down effect for a stronger local economy – are endless. Small business owners have invested their personal savings into starting a lifelong venture, and they are 100% committed to giving you their very best. Hiring business partners stays local too – A local storeowner will also require the services of a sign company, a construction company or interior designer, a computer consultant and accounting services to

start and keep his or her business rolling. Small businesses depend on social media and marketing to grow their businesses, and they will hire ad agencies within the community they live in and love to guide their advertising strategies. Local, creative professionals know the client base and where new businesses need to advertise in order to reach them. Your favorite local shop will hire employees locally as well. That means more jobs for you, your teenagers and your neighbors. Small business owners will work doubly hard to stock the products they know their customers want. They aren’t driven by the powers of a national chain to dictate their inventory. That same small business owner may actually be the person who greets you with a smile when you enter his or her shop. Your shopping experience is more personal, and you’ll find that he or she made a mental note of what you like and don’t like – making custom orders much easier. The success of small businesses, in turn, encourages other budding entrepreneurs to take the plunge. One of those fledgling business owners might even be you finally taking an idea you’ve been sitting on and making it a reality. Shopping local means less travel which is another plus for the environment. Not having merchandise packed at a warehouse and shipped to you via a plane or cargo truck that uses tons of fuel is another Earth-friendly no-brainer. Local businesses are widely known and applauded for giving back to schools in the area and other non-profit groups within the community – a gesture of sharing their success with those who support them. As community shopping continues to boom, you’ll also see more one-of-a-kind businesses opening – often selling products that reflect your community’s personality. So, there’s no better place to find a truly unique gift. Plain and simple, more of the money you spend at a local business stays right here at home. With more movements like Small Business Saturday that many local merchants’ associations are supporting, (that’s a recently evolved shopping holiday typically held the Saturday after Thanksgiving; for this year, that’s November 28th) shopping local is becoming more than just a catch phrase. It’s a way of life and a way of commerce that keeps communities thriving, growing and enjoying the diverse talents and energies of its neighbors!

The Clemmons Food Pantry, CFP, is a non-profit organization committed to fighting hunger in Forsyth County. More than 300 volunteers work together – writing grants, collecting money, collecting food – to ensure that 2,300 households in Forsyth County receive supplemental groceries each month. Kathy Kovack, the treasurer of the Board of Directors (BOD), shares, “We have a wonderful team of 300 volunteers, many from the same family, who shop, shelve and serve the clients. We are open three days a week and serve up to 90 clients on each of those days.” Debi Boyce, an escort and the secretary of the BOD writes, “Volunteering at the pantry makes me understand how lucky I am. An illness, job loss, change in family situation or other tragedy could result in a need to reach out to community organizations for support. I find it is a blessing to provide a bit of relief to our neighbors going through a difficult time.” Volunteers who are part of the pantry say the same phrases, “I am blessed” or “I feel lucky to be part of the Clemmons community.” Art Duncan, team leader, writes, “Volunteering at the Food Pantry makes me realize just how blessed I am to have so much. Many clients have told me they would not have any food to eat without our help.”

The pantry relies on donations to maintain its “leased” building, pay utilities and keep focus on feeding 27,600 individuals annually. It is a daunting task. CFP is a business that constantly has to think ahead especially during two crucial times of year – summer and holidays. To cover these times of the year, the pantry writes grants and relies on food drives to help cover the need. Particularly in the summer, since children comprise 47 percent of the households who are identified as food challenged in Forsyth County. Numerous fundraisers, such as the annual golf tournament held in July and discount cards, featuring 16 restaurants in Clemmons, provide funds to support the efforts of the pantry. CFP feels fortunate when a food windfall becomes available such as a recent donation of 1,200 pounds of sweet potatoes from The Society of St. Andrews in collaboration with Oak Ridge United Methodist Church or the West Forsyth High School food drive which provides around 23,000 items each December. Throughout the year, schools, civic groups, churches, businesses and neighborhoods and many others conduct food drives specifically for the pantry. If you are interested in volunteering your time, have a flair for grant writing or can provide a monetary or food donation, please visit www.clemmonsfoodpantry.org, and click the “Contact Us” tab or call 336.331.3432.

The Clemmons Farmers’ Market and Community Garden By Lisa s.T. Doss

he Village of Clemmons is charming, encompassing 12 square miles. Beyond its clean neighborhoods, great businesses and friendly folks, Clemmons maintains its definition by instilling a diversified scope of community life and opportunities for healthy eating. What could be more important to a village than getting to know local farmers, and offering residents a cooperative community gardening experience?

T

Farmers’ Market The Village of Clemmons’ planning director and organizers stood on the grounds of Tanglewood Park and unanimously agreed the location was perfect to establish the Clemmons Farmers’ Market. While this concept began as a request from residents, Village staff members were encouraged to expand the Clemmons food movement. In our markets and grocery stores, we love to see the words “homegrown,” and “organic” and, especially, “made locally.” Starting in May of 2014, the market offered the community an additional opportunity to build relationships, ask questions and learn more about food through their local farmers. On Saturdays from 8:30am-12pm, farmers from Davidson, Davie, Guilford, Rockingham, Stokes, Surry, Yadkin and Forsyth counties come to set up their “locally grown” goods. Imagine what you will find at the start of the season, and each visit there is something new until the market concludes in October. There are fresh eggs and honey, a wide variety of in-season fruits and vegetables, cut and dried flowers, baked goods, select cuts of meats, jams, jellies, juices, a cold press juice bar and even the ability to purchase herbs, plants, berries and vines. The Village of Clemmons’ Planning Director, Megan Ledbetter, shares, “Our vendors have a wide varied of backgrounds. One family came back from Tibet and started a farm with Nomadic practices including farming free-range livestock and poultry. We have a farm that dates back to Moravian settlements, as well as a local, coldpressed raw, organic juice bar. Our farmers’ market has something special for everyone, and even a bakery for the family dog.” At www.clemmons.org and the Tanglewood Park Farmers’ Market Facebook page, new residents and visitors will find wonderful opportunities and special events at the Tanglewood Farmers’ Market.

The Community Garden Many think of gardening as a backyard endeavor; however, for Clemmons residents, there is a wonderful opportunity to participate in growing organic foods alongside others while offering a portion to the Clemmons Food Pantry. Located behind Village Hall, the project started with local Girl Scout Cadette Troop 41669. Pleased to help, the troop of five seventh graders from Hanes Middle School participated in constructing the 20 raised beds – 4x20 in size – and saw the project through until its dedication in 2012 by Congresswoman Virginia Foxx. The vision of the committee for the garden is to provide members of the community with a safe place to grow their own organic food and provide an opportunity to share a portion of the garden’s bounty with others in need by donation to area food banks. The garden brings fresh local produce, personal connections, educational opportunities for adults and youth and beautification to the community. For three growing seasons, the community garden has offered personal connections and educational opportunities for all ages. Money raised from plot rentals goes toward beautifying and expanding the garden. Today, visitors will find several new additions such as a fence to protect the produce and a garden planted in large barrels to attract pollinators such as birds, bees and butterflies. Boy Scout named Daniel Watkins raised money through his church to build a pergola accented with paving stones and a ramp to the shed for his Eagle Scout project in honor of Ryan Wood. The community garden is maintained through volunteers. If you would like to contribute in some large or small way to the involvement of the Clemmons community life, please contact Megan Ledbetter at mledbetter@clemmons.org. Volunteers are always appreciated!

Soul Food By Meghan Corbett

“Perhaps the most important and most respected feature of the South is the phenomenal food you can only find here...”

Forsyth Community | ForsythMags.com

t must be hard to understand how amazing growing up in the South truly is. We don’t seem to get the best PR nationwide. Think about how southerners are portrayed in movies and TV. After all the wonderful things you’ve read in this issue of Forsyth Community, you know how much the South has to offer. Perhaps the most important and most respected feature of the South is the phenomenal food you can only find here. Other areas of the country may try, but if you want real barbeque, you come to North Carolina. And it doesn’t stop there. Obviously, we are known for Krispy Kreme donuts. I don’t think a childhood is complete until you’ve had a “Hot Now” donut straight off the conveyor belt. This area is known for the creation of these yummy treats, as well as Cheerwine and Texas Pete. Not far from here, also in NC, Pepsi, Mt. Olive Pickles and Hardee’s were born. This area also does justice to some of the most delectable southern favorites: Grits – Grits have never been a favorite of mine, until I had real southern, stone-ground grits. The off-white junk you can buy in a box at the grocery store is not what a southerner had in mind when they made them a southern staple. The yellow, stone-ground variety, made with plenty of butter and chicken stock, is the way to go. Biscuits – Made with buttermilk…nothing else will do. Pecan Pie – Though I prefer mine with chocolate chips the way my mom always made it, southern pecan pie is always a crowd pleaser…so why does it seem we only serve it during the holidays? Collard Greens – You either love them or you hate them. If you are a true southerner at heart, you have to love them – if your table is looking a little too off-white with all the starches that come standard with a southern diet, add a little green! If they are truly southern-made, they will have little bits of ham or some ham seasoning. Fried Okra – If collard greens are a little too green…try frying up some okra. You’re welcome! Chicken and Dumplings/Fried Chicken – We eat a lot of chicken in the South. No matter how you cook it, make sure there is a southerner in your kitchen to tell you how to do it correctly. Barbeque – The pinnacle of southern food. Growing up in this area, I will only eat vinegar-based barbeque. I’ve heard other states (and even western NC) use a tomato base. That’s just not American. The list goes on and on, so if you are lucky enough to call North Carolina home, whether since childhood or more recently, rest assured you will see all of these on a menu in the near future. No one will make any of these dishes taste as good as they can be made at home once you know what you’re doing, but until then, let yourself indulge in all the delicious southern cuisine North Carolina has to offer!

Its celestial countryside setting is reason enough to visit Tanglewood Park in Clemmons.

wildflower borders which attract many visitors today, along with a vivid collection of butterflies!

By yourself for a quiet retreat, for a weekend family outing or an afternoon stroll with your favorite four-legged friend, this is a picturesque 1,100 acres of beautiful North Carolina land. Besides those simple pleasures, however, there are countless other reasons to reach out on a sunny afternoon and experience everything Tanglewood Park has to offer.

Now a delightful bed-and-breakfast reminiscent of the Victorian Era, the Manor House offers 10 guest rooms with a mix of original and reproduction furnishings along with the house’s original staircase. The still impeccable service and lovely accommodations offer the perfect setting for romantic weddings and other special events.With activities that everyone in the family can enjoy such as golfing, fishing and boating at Mallard Lake or a visit to the horse stables, the lush gardens and hiking trails are all available year-round, while tennis and a variety of activities at the aquatic center can be enjoyed on a more seasonal basis.

An amazing blend of beauty and history – with a little something extra for all to enjoy – Tanglewood Park actually includes land that was first claimed by Sir Walter Raleigh for Queen Elizabeth in 1584. Welsh immigrant William Johnson later claimed the land that would become Tanglewood in 1757, building a fort overlooking the Yadkin River to protect his family during the French and Indian War. It was Johnson’s heirs who eventually sold William Neal Reynolds of the Reynolds Tobacco family the land in 1921. Reynolds increased the size of both the acreage and the Manor House while pursuing his passion of raising and racing thoroughbred horses. Horseback riding is still a prominent past time at Tanglewood. “Mr. Will” (as he was known) was married to Kate Reynolds who was quite the horticulture expert. As the overseer of the spectacular gardens, she teamed with German Master Gardener Frank Lustig to lay the groundwork for the 88-bush rose garden and the always-delightful

Tanglewood Park is also part of the North Carolina Birding Trail which provides a delightful number of bird-watching opportunities throughout the year, as well. Annual passes for the park can be purchased at the welcome center, as well as tickets for individual events. Both guided and self-guided tours of the park are available for those who want to explore every charming aspect of this Clemmons treasure! If you’re new to our area, or if Tanglewood Park is on your regular list of favorite outings, visit the website at tanglewoodpark.org for event updates and schedules, call 336.703.6400 and, by all means, visit it at 4201 Manor House Circle in Clemmons.

W

hat makes North Carolina, and our area, so special? It’s a variety of reasons – the close proximity to the mountains and the beach, the culture-rich environment, the changing seasons, the Southern hospitality, the quality of life, the opportunities – the list goes on. We have a heritage of which to be proud. Some of these NC factoids you probably learned in school, some may be news. Here goes: Firsts: • First English settlement in the New World (what happened to the Lost Colony remains a mystery). • First English child born in America (Virginia Dare in 1587) – The Lost Colony outdoor drama, intended for one season, has continued for 60 summer seasons. • First state to declare independence from England (1775). • Bethabara (in Winston-Salem) was the first Moravian settlement in NC (now known as Bethabara Park with 20 miles of trails and restored village). • First state university in the USA – University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. • First in flight – thanks to the Wright brothers in 1903. Famous people who called North Carolina home: • NC was home to two American Presidents: • Andrew Jackson, 7th President (Waxhaws) • James K. Polk, 11th President (Mecklenburg County)

By Vonda Henderson

News personalities included: • Charles Kuralt (Wilmington) – One of his most well-known shows was “On the Road” (traveling the lesser known roads of America to see what was around the bend). • Edward R. Murrow (Guilford County) – the iconic newscaster of World War II • Howard Cosell, sportscaster (Winston-Salem) • Hiram Rhoades Revels, the first African-American member of Congress, was from Fayetteville. • O. Henry, famed for “The Gift of the Magi” (Greensboro) • Billy Graham, evangelist (Charlotte) Actresses and actors include: • Pam Grier (Winston-Salem) • Ava Gardner (Smithfield) • Andy Griffith (Mt. Airy) Among the many sports people from NC: • Meadowlark Lemon, Harlem Globetrotters (Wilmington) • Curly Neal, Harlem Globetrotters (Greensboro) • Jim “Catfish” Hunter, Baseball (Hereford) • Richard Petty, NASCAR (Level Cross) • Dale Earnhardt, NASCAR (Kannapolis)

Musicians/Singers: • John Coltrane, 20th century jazz icon (Hamlet) • Donna Fargo, country music, “The Happiest Girl in the Whole USA” (Mt. Airy) • Roberta Flack, singer known for “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” (Black Mountain) Arts: • First state in the nation to establish a state museum of art located in Raleigh. • The Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County is the first locally established arts council in the United States (1949). Sports: • Arnold Palmer was on the golf team at Wake Forest University. • Babe Ruth hit his first professional home run in Fayetteville on March 7, 1914. • NASCAR Hall of Fame located in Charlotte. Inventions: • Pepsi was invented in New Bern, NC in 1898. • Winston-Salem is home to Krispy Kreme (okay, maybe invention is a stretch, but let’s face it, there is nothing like a hot Krispy Kreme donut). For the Kid in Us All: • SciWorks in Winston-Salem has interactive exhibits, nature trails and a planetarium within its 25,000 square feet. • Tanglewood Park’s Festival of Lights offers four miles of spectacular light displays. Other: • NC has 100 counties. • The oldest town is Bath, incorporated in 1705. • The largest, privately owned home the United States is The Biltmore House in Asheville. • NC has the largest state-maintained highway system. • NC is the largest producer of sweet potatoes in the United States. • High Point is the Furniture Capital of the World. • NC was the last state to secede from the Union (1861). • Turn back the clock to 1766 with a visit to Old Salem (Salem was settled by Moravians, considered the oldest Protestant denomination) and enjoy some sugar cake or a handful of Moravian cookies (the “world’s thinnest cookie”). • The Reynolds Building in downtown Winston-Salem was the tallest building in the South when it was completed in 1929 and is the model for the Empire State Building in NYC. What makes North Carolina special could go on and on. We’re proud to call North Carolina home.

The New Kid Game Plan

E

verybody dreads being the new kid. The awkward introductions and increased scrutiny can make even the most confident kid nervous. There’s no way to avoid it, but being the new kid doesn’t have to be as bad as all that. A smooth transition can be as easy as having a game plan. Kids Be confident. This can be tough in a new environment, but try to look others in the eye and stand in a relaxed, open position. Be friendly. Smile at people and talk to everyone, even if you don't think they're friend material. Ask for help. If you're lost or unsure of what to do, it's okay to ask for help. If you're worried about getting around, get a map of the school beforehand. Pay attention. Watch what's going on around you. Pay attention to others’ interests and behaviors. Gather information that will help you make friends and fit in. Join in. Find something extracurricular that will allow you to spend time with your classmates in a relaxed, non-threatening atmosphere. Don't worry. Try not to think too much about how you're fitting in, and don’t stress over others’ first impressions of you. Be happy. If school’s giving you the jitters, try to find something you enjoy to do after school to decompress. Give it time. It takes time to settle in and feel comfortable, but you’ll get there.

By Rebecca Olsen

Parents Notify your child’s school as soon as you know a transition will occur so that the school can begin gathering the documentation that needs to accompany his or her cumulative folder to the new school. Notify your child’s teacher so that he or she has time to gather your child’s belongings, wrap up projects and finalize grades. Pay all school fees, and return all library and classroom books to the school. Enroll your child immediately in his or her new school. Some parents think waiting a few weeks gives children time to adjust, but even missing two weeks of school can put your child behind and at risk of failure. Consider purchasing a “first day at a new school outfit” that might help boost your child’s confidence and build some enthusiasm. Be consistent at home. With big changes occurring in a child’s school life, it’s important to provide the security of steady routines at home. Listen and support. Anxiety is normal, and your child may need you to calm fears, listen to concerns and support his or her efforts to make friends.

PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES

7 TIPS TO MAXIMIZE

hat are the odds that you would run into a former teacher in the grocery store? It may sound unlikely, but it does occur. She will remember you as a smart and charming child. If she said your name often, she may use adjectives such as determined, creative and highly expressive. You, on the other hand, may stand a little taller and be happy to talk to the woman who represented sternness and love, intelligence and knowledge. Out of respect, she couldn't possibly be addressed by any name other than Mrs. Bowers. Never! No matter how old you are, the expectations of a teacher and the ability to communicate with her may still be difficult. As parents, questions and communication is often delayed until a scheduled meeting, namely a parent-teacher conference. To eliminate worry, here are seven tips to help you make the most of your conference.

W

1. Prepare and Plan Ahead Every parent goes to a parent-teacher conference swirling with questions and concerns. Two things you can do beforehand are: Make a list of questions, and star the top two. Try to focus on questions that help you at home such as homework or studying concerns. Many parents want to know, "How much time should she spend on homework?" When the moment arrives, you want to be well prepared. Do not go alone. A second individual can, perhaps, take notes and summarize key points to the meeting, listen and ask questions. 2. Arrive Early Circumstances do arise, and some parents will not be able to make their scheduled conferences; therefore, arrive early. A few extra minutes may be exactly what both of you need. 3. Breaking the Ice While your child comes home and tells you about what the teacher said and did, imagine what the teacher knows about you. It's a very odd moment and needs an icebreaker. A genuine smile works great as well as a positive statement.

4. Look and Listen! The teacher has a lot of information to share with you so, allow him or her to direct the conversation. In the process, she'll most likely answer one or two of your questions. In a time block conference, some teachers may start talking quickly or begin using vocabulary that is unfamiliar to you. It is okay to ask the teacher to stop and clarify what you do not understand. 5. Room to Grow Every child has strengths and areas that could be described as “room to grow.” As a parent, you know exactly what your daughter or son's strengths are; therefore, she will offer a few compliments, but the goal of the conference is to work on those “weaknesses.” The teacher will have a plan; so, be ready and accepting. Remember, parents and teachers are just part of the triangle of communication. Both of you are working together to help your child grow and blossom. 6. Be Positive Conferences are filled with anxiety and emotion wrapped into a small amount of time. It is easy to feel overwhelmed by the amount of information you have been given. At the end, there will be time to ask questions. Look at your list, and determine what is important now. (With time ticking away, be positive and encouraging.) 7. End With verbal Appreciation While a conference is a short meeting, preparing for a parent-teacher conference takes time and thoughtful consideration in selecting key examples of your child's work. She has already put in countless hours and will take money from her pocket to ensure her class has a great year. Before departing the conference, take the time to offer your verbal support. Regardless, whether she needs supplies or assistance in one way or another, children benefit when parents and teachers work together.

Stu Egan: A voice from Class

I

nvariably, in many social situations, I am asked that same ubiquitous question many people face: “So, what do you do for a living?” And, when I answer that I am a teacher, the reactions are varied. “Wow, that must be exciting!” “Do you guys still use red ink?” “How do you handle those kids?” “I wouldn’t have the patience.” Some people have even said, “I’m sorry.” While there may be some lightheartedness involved, conversations about education usually ensue because everybody in the community has a stake in the public education system – students attend schools, parents support efforts, employees hire graduates and taxpayers help fund buildings and resources. But, there are those who really question the path that public education has taken and lack confidence in our young people and their roles as future leaders. It is with these people that I talk about West Forsyth and the Lewisville-Clemmons community. In fact, I can speak glowingly of all our schools here in the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County system. I am not here to compare schools, but having spent the last 10+ years at West Forsyth gives me insight into at least one of them. The fact that West Forsyth is recognized as a high-performing school and that our students pursue worthwhile postsecondary endeavors speaks incredibly well, but our students are more than achievers in academics. It’s because they succeed in being good people that helps set this school apart. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, once said, “We must remember that intelligence is not enough. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.” Most all of the young people I see every day understand the meaning of those words, and the character they show inside and outside the classroom is a reason that we should celebrate the work our schools do. In a country where we identify schools through acronyms like NCLB, EOCTs, EOGs, SATs, ACTs, APs, ABCs and AYPs, it’s reassuring to know that our young people also define themselves with more standards than those of an academic transcript. Don’t get me wrong, the academics are important; but if we want to educate the complete student, we must honor character and our students are very honorable because they distinguish themselves by

their character and the impressions they leave on others. If that is a criterion for having faith in this next generation, then the students I matriculate with every day at West have instilled confidence within me. When you as a teacher begin to see the third and fourth sibling from the same family in your classes, have been sent wedding invitations from former students or have embraced a family member at a funeral for a previous pupil, then you have been at the same school for a long time, or better yet, become a member of a community that loves and nurtures its own. When you receive notes and visits from students who have long past graduated, then you know you have made an impression, hopefully a positive one. And, when you are met by a parent whom you do not even recognize but wanted to thank you for what you taught his or her child, then you know that you are in the right profession. And, when the first child of a former student graces my doorway for class, then I will be more than glad to talk of his or her parent’s adventures in school, possibly with some embellishment. My own daughter will attend West next year as a freshman. There will not be any need to show her around campus or introduce her to the administration or the teachers; she is already familiar with West. That’s because she is already invested in one of the cornerstones of our community – our public high school.

Homework Tips By Stacy Leighton

It’s time for homework; there will be crying, tantrums, head-pounding and extreme “Googling.” And that’s just the parents! Often it’s not much more fun for our children. “We do the things we have to do before we can do the things we want to do” right? But, it doesn’t have to be that painful. There are a few things we can do to help them to (eventually) help themselves. The first question most parents ask is; “How much homework should my child expect?” According to the National Parent Teacher Association, the recommended breakdown is as follows: • Kindergarten through second grade should not exceed 10-20 minutes each day. • Third through sixth grade benefit from 30-60 minutes of homework per day. • Grades seven through 12 can expect to spend more time on homework, and the amount of time can vary based on assignments.

Get to know their teachers and their expectations. When you attend parents’ night and conferences, ask them their policies and what you can do to help. Of course, you can do their homework for them, but what are they learning? And much as we might like to, we cannot go to college with them. Once you have all the information, you and your child can create homework systems that will become life-long successful study habits.

1. Time – Set a time every day for homework. Routines become habits. Your children may be hungry and tired when they get home, or they may attend an after-school program. Understanding what they need for optimal learning is individual. Once you have established what works best for them, try to keep that homework time sacred.

2. Place – Polling a dozen of my favorite kids ages six through 20, I found that the optimal study “space” varies based on individual preference, too. Some kids feel engaged at a desk or kitchen table while others find that stretched out on the floor or bed works well for them. My college friends suggested the couch. If what they are studying is too intense or boring, they take headphones to sit at the library or coffee shop to study. This keeps them stimulated but not distracted. Again, once you find this space, protect it and make it part of their routines. 3. Organization – Paper, pencils, scissors, glue sticks, calculators and other materials should be kept in the same place every day and ready for use. Utilize an agenda for keeping track of assignments. Calendar projects so that they are not left to the night before they are due. Encourage your older students to keep their course work in subject binders including the teacher’s syllabus, grading policies and assignment lists they received during the first week of class. 4. Mood

– We used to say when it is homework time “We are going dark.” Not literally. What that meant was cell phones are off, and rushing or scurrying about ceases. Distractions are eliminated. One note about background noise -while some of my students need quiet to focus, others cannot study without some kind of background noise; for this, classical music (ie music without lyrics) and white noise are excellent choices.

5. Break it into manageable pieces – Start with the easiest first. Once we have completed some of our homework, it motivates us to plow through the rest. 6. Set goals – Decide what needs to be done before you take a break. It is

important to get up and move around; for little ones, every seven minutes, and for bigger kids, at least every 20 - 30 minutes. Time or benchmark achievements make homework feel more like a game.

7. Throw out a lifeline

- If they need help, be there; if you need help, find out what resources are available to you. Most schools offer free peer tutoring, mentoring, study groups or other resources. There are also excellent online resources such as Khan Academy.

The Benefits of Local Libraries Robin White Ellis

resident Obama said, “At the moment that we persuade a child, any child, to cross that threshold into a library, we change their lives forever, for the better.” This reminds me of when I received my first library card as a small child. Being a fanciful, imaginative little girl, I was overwhelmed with the possibilities! What whimsical world would open up to me next by virtue of the pages of a book? I viewed the library as my own personal fairyland. As I grew older, I realized how much more libraries offered. Libraries are hubs of communication, culture and knowledge. More than just buildings of books and computers, residents and visitors gather to explore, investigate, imagine and interact. A local library represents the customs, development and creativity of the community. They bestow free resources to assist unemployed citizens in finding gainful employment. The archives are laden with historical records for those researching genealogy and immigration accounts. Local artists are able to exhibit their creations, and parents connect while bringing their children to story-time events. From classes and workshops to book clubs and movie nights, local libraries bring people together in both educational and entertaining ways.

P

Forsyth County libraries offer a Testing and Educational Reference Center which provides the following resources: More than 300 practice tests and courses • Information on more than 4,000 accredited schools • Scholarship search featuring eight billion dollars in available scholarships • Resume builder • Career modules covering subjects from career change to salary negotiations • Free internet access and computer usage We currently live in a digital world and, as such, certain public jewels have become woefully overlooked. Few people realize that libraries are working to keep up with

technology. They provide downloadable media such as audiobooks, eBooks, videos and music. There is also live homework help for students accessible via the county library website. In fact, visiting the online resources section of the Forsyth County library website is a marvel! There is an alphabetic catalog of available books, as well as specific categorical searches such as arts, business, health, genealogy, science, travel, etc. Each category lists the books obtainable regarding the topic along with recommendations for useful websites. The webpage includes a calendar of library news and events as well as virtual tours of local amenities. There are listings for community services such as computer training and safety programs. Since 1972, the Forsyth County Public Library Homebound and Institutionalized Department has been delivering materials to customers. Also known as Adult Outreach, they provide library materials and special services to more than 50 facilities housing people who are unable to travel to the library themselves. Being available to the disabled and to seniors is a tremendous benefit and includes supplying large print books and magazines in conjunction with audiobooks and movies. Unfortunately, our local libraries are astonishingly undervalued. With city governments and services struggling economically, public libraries tend to feel shortchanged first by cuts in funding. Considering the copious advantages our libraries administer, to both individuals and the community, showing our support for these efforts is surely not too much to ask. There are myriad ways to be of service to our libraries, including donating books, assisting with fundraisers and allotting financial help when planning your charitable donations. The easiest way to support your library is to use it! Visit and, even better, take a child with you to share the benefits with the next generation. It feels wonderful to carry out a previously unread book and picture the hours of enjoyment it provides. You may have to return the book but you get to keep the story, ideas and experience.

O M Z GI Tanglewood! Goes to

e By Gizmo Eagl

Hi, my name is Gizmo and I’m a nine-year-old light golden retriever. Some of my hobbies include snuggling with my mom and dad (also known as Brooke & Chris Eagle), doing happy dances before every meal, Instagramming special moments in my life (you can follow me @gizmothegolden), swimming at Lake Norman, and my favorite hobby of all… going for walks at Tanglewood Park. When I see my mom get my collar and my leash out of the garage, I do an EXTRA extravagant happy dance because I know what’s coming. I get to go for a ride (another favorite hobby of mine) and go for a walk at Tanglewood. If I’m super lucky, my grandmother comes along on the walk, too! And on really special occasions, BOTH of my grandmothers walk with us. I can hardly stand the excitement just thinking about it. Tanglewood is such a great place to walk. I get to sniff lots of other dogs during our walk and sometimes even get petted by other humans. I lead the way for the first half mile… but for the last 1.2 miles I stay right beside my mom (mostly because I’m 9 years old and I can’t keep up that kind of pace for too long). When I was younger, my mom and dad used to take me on runs with them through Tanglewood, but I’m much too old for that now. And it’s OK because I love taking it slow and enjoying all the beauty that Tanglewood has to offer. The sniffing opportunities are endless. Tanglewood even has a special water fountain just for dogs that I can use if I’m thirsty during our walk. How cool is that? And if I’m feeling extra playful, my mom will take me into the dog park at Tanglewood. They have a big dog section and a little dog section. I’m scared of the little dogs so she lets me stay in the big dog section. I always hear my mom and grandmothers say how lucky we are to have Tanglewood right in our back yard and I couldn’t agree more. Except, if we’re so lucky, why can’t we go on walks there every single day? If you’re a dog and you’re reading this, you need to leave it out for your humans to see. Maybe they’ll start taking you to Tanglewood, too! Hope to sniff you –I mean meet you—soon,

Gizmo

s n o m m e l C Sports in By Meghan Corbett

T

here are many great ways to get outside for some exercise or exciting competitive fun in Clemmons! There is absolutely no excuse for playing video games all day if you’d rather be soaking in the sun and breathing in some fresh air, because Clemmons has you covered no matter what you are interested in. Below are some of our favorites! BB&T Soccer Park Owned and operated by the Twin City Youth Soccer Association, BB&T Soccer Park is one of the top sports facilities in the Southeast. Soccer is the most popular sport worldwide, and while it is still gaining ground in the United States, it is a sport many parents can agree does wonders for their kids. It is great exercise, teaches lessons about sportsmanship and teamwork, and allows parents to feel a bit safer sending them out onto the field than in some other sports. There are nearly 3,000 boys, girls and adults taking the field at BB&T Soccer Park annually through Twin City, so visit twincitysoccer.com to find out more about how to get involved! Tanglewood BMX Have something a little more adventurous in mind? Test your skills at the Tanglewood BMX track in Clemmons. Sanctioned by USA BMX, this membersonly facility has been in business for more than 30 years and continues to run as a non-profit. It is operated through tax-deductible donations which allows all the money received to go right back into keeping the track at optimal condition. Tanglewood BMX offers videos and manuals for new riders to get comfortable with BMX and allows riders to be as involved as they wish. Visit tanglewood-bmx.com if you’d like to get started! Southwest Forsyth Little League & Clemmons Challengers Southwest Forsyth Little League offers many options for kids interested in baseball or softball. With multiple levels and age groups, kids can begin where they are comfortable and work their way up. This little league has been in business since 1963 when E.K. Whitener, Jr. established it. Since then, thousands of kids have taken part in the tradition of baseball in Clemmons. In 1974, the softball program was added, and now, there are baseball, softball and football camps offered during the summer for kids to perfect their game! To learn how to get involved, visit swfll.org. In the world of Clemmons athletics, no one is left behind! The Clemmons Challengers, or the Challenger League, is a division of Little League Baseball designed specifically for children ages 5-18 with physical and developmental challenges to take part in America’s sport. There is no cost for the children to participate because of generous sponsors who cover all the costs associated with maintaining the teams. Giving these kids the opportunity to participate in team competition is a remarkable gift, and each and every one loves being out on the field! For more information, visit swfll.org. Silver Sneakers® at the Jerry Long Family YMCA The SilverSneakers® program is a fabulous opportunity for everyone in the area to get in shape and get the exercise we all need to stay healthy. Officially, it “…is a preventative exercise program that enhances the quality of life for older adults across the country,” according to the YMCA’s website. “Retirees and those eligible for Medicare can check with their healthcare provider to see if they qualify for SilverSneakers® which gives participants a free membership to the Y. Through the program, members gain access to customized SilverSneakers® classes that improve strength, flexibility, balance and endurance. This program combines health, wellness and fitness so seniors feel empowered and build friendships.” For more information, visit ymcanwnc.org. In addition, the Jerry Long Family YMCA in Clemmons also offers all the programs we have come to love at the YMCA. With childcare also available, there are many options to keep you and your family healthy throughout the year. Activities include swimming, basketball, self-defense training, one-on-one personal training, gymnastics, senior activities, before and after school care, and summer camps. Visit ymcanwnc.org to learn more and see just how affordable a membership can be!
