East Depot/Pine St. pavilion to be dedicated

Published 2:15 pm Tuesday, October 3, 2023

Heritage Alliance Project (HAP) and the Town of Mocksville will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for a community pavilion to be built at East Depot and Pine streets, on Thursday, Oct. 12 at 4 p.m.

HAP purchased and donated the land to the town for construction of the pavilion.

HAP is a community-based, nonprofit organization whose mission is to collaborate to facilitate the preservation of history and advocate for beautification and safety in the East Depot/Mill Street community, said Sharon Anderson.

“The pavilion project will address one of the organization’s primary tenets, that of safety. This project will focus on the safety of children who catch the school bus at the intersection. The pavilion will serve as a safe shelter, away from the street, where children can wait for the bus,” she said.
