We are Davie County: All American t-shirts now available

Published 8:02 am Monday, October 2, 2023

In June, Davie County was one of 10 communities across the country to receive the All-America City/County award from the National Civic League.

Show pride by wearing a limited-edition Davie County All-America County t-shirt.

When the All-America delegation returned home from Denver, numerous people asked about purchasing one of their “We Are Davie” team t-shirts.

Although those shirts were created for the competition team, Davie High Drafting Instructor Will Marrs has designed an All-America County t-shirt for the community as a fundraiser for the four youth programs featured in the award application.

The heather blue shirt features the red, white, and blue All-America emblem and the team’s competition slogan, “We Are Davie County!” The shirts come in adult small through 2x. The shirts are $20 each, and only 500 were printed.

In order for the maximum amount of money to go to youth programs, cash  only is being accepted. The shirts can be purchased at:

• Bermuda Run Town Hall, 120 Kinderton Blvd., Suite 100, Bermuda Run, Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.;

• Davie County Chamber of Commerce, 135 S. Salisbury St., Mocksville, Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.;

County Manager Brian Barnett expressed his gratitude to Marrs, Gildan, and UTA Sports for supporting the campaign and making the shirts possible.

“The proceeds from your donated t-shirts will be used to support the four youth organizations that helped bring home the 2023 All-America County Award (Ignite Davie College Promise, SURF Board Student Grantmakers, Davie High’s Career and Technical Education Program (CTE), and the Davie Respect Initiative.
“It’s so great to see the community coming together to demonstrate how great a place Davie County can be,” Barnett said. “We hope that everyone will support our youth by purchasing these shirts and wearing them with pride.
