About 150 people stood straight, then stretched their arms skyward during a giant yoga class on the Village Green Saturday afternoon. It was the second annual Yoga on the Green, organized by Cornelius yoga studio The Bindu. The event included a free hourlong yoga lesson and live music by Billy Jones & The Pocket.
This year’s event gathered $10 donations from most participants and raised a total of $750 for Davidson Farmer’s Market’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Donations will be used for program incentives, administrative costs, outreach and advertising needed to restart this program, to increase access to fresh, healthy, local food for everyone in our community.
The Bindu is at 11138-C Treynorth Drive, off NC 115, Cornelius, founded by Kelley Gardner, a certified Anusara Yoga teacher. She led Saturday’s session on the green.
Find out more about the event on Facebook.

With a ribbon cutting, tours and a small feast served by local chefs, MSC Industrial Supply Co. on Tuesday showed off its new $31 million “co-headquarters” off I-77 Exit 30. The six-story building overlooking I-77 and Lake Davidson houses 150 employees right now, many who moved from the company’s original headquarters in Melville, NY.
See a related story from Tuesday, “MSC plugs in as Davidson’s newest corporate neighbor.”
The christening was a big milestone for the growing MSC, which decided to split its headquarters in part to help recruiting as it expands its work force. Founded in New York City in 1941 as Sid Tool, the company now has more than 6,000 employees. It sells $2.7 billion a year in industrial tools and supplies to customers ranging from big manufacturers to the military to NASCAR teams.
