Thanks to Miles Brown
The Town Board on Tuesday took time out from its monthly meeting to recognize Miles Brown of Huntersville, formerly of Davidson, for his work in raising money for the Davidson Volunteer Fire Department. Mayor John Woods jokingly referred to the concert as “Barnstock,” because it was held in a barn at the family’s home in Huntersville last summer. Mr. Brown, a senior at Cannon School, helped bring in $2,500, which the department will use to buy oxygen tanks.
