STANLEY––Monday saw a couple of firsts for the Town of Stanley.
The Stanley Town Council held its first in-person meeting since the COVID hit. This was also the first meeting in the new Stanley Town Hall facility (a renovated former bank).
Among the action, Rev. Dr. Claude Williams and United Action of Stanley Churches presented a check for $7,920 to Stanley Police Chief Derek Summey. The money was raised by area churches in order to purchase body cameras for police officers.
In other news, Bob Mahovsky of the Stanley Ancestry Committee spoke of recent renovations and cleaning work done at the historic cemetery adjacent Christ’s Lutheran Church. Mahovsky said there would be recognition of local veterans in November. He accepted a check from the church for $4,000, and Mahovsky and his wife presented the committee with a $2,000 check to further its efforts.
Stanley Parks and Recreation spokesman Tug Deason said the annual “trunk or treat” festivities were cancelled this year. Countryfest was also cancelled due to COVID, as Deason noted.
And following a probationary period, clerk to the board Olga Grishin accepted her new full-time position.
Stanley Town Hall is located at 416 NC-27 in Stanley.
