The Angell family of Davidson reminds us that this Halloween will be the seventh year to collect candy donations after Trick o’ Treating for our troops overseas.
Collections dates are Nov. 1-9 and drop off bins are located in Ben & Jerry’s, Ace Hardware, Lake Norman YMCA, the Community School of Davidson and Kadi Fit. All types of candy, including chocolate, will be accepted and all making donations are encouraged to include a note, card, drawing or personalized message for service members. Charlotte USO is responsible for getting the “treats” to the troops.
Back in 2006 when Mom Dani Angell and children, Zac and Kara, started small by asking friends to donate candy to send to Dad Mike Angell who was deployed overseas. Although Mike has since retired from the military after 21 years of service, the family continues the tradition – knowing how grateful the troops are.

Click to donate to Davidson Elementary's UNICEF drive
On Halloween night (Wednesday, Oct. 31), children from Davidson Elementary School will be trick-or-treating for UNICEF to collect money for kids in need.
The program helps the students realize that they can do something to help the many children throughout the world who do not have enough food to eat, clothing to wear, or a place to live.
If you would like to contribute, please look for the trick-or-treaters with their UNICEF boxes or you can make a donation online. A UNICEF website has been created for Davidson Elementary at inside.unicefusa.org/goto/davidsonelementary
Davidson’s online goal is only $250 which is enough money to purchase a “School in a Box’ so that students in unsettled areas can learn anywhere.

The Stoney Creek Boys from Cornelius will provide the music for Flatiron’s first Fall Festival
By DAVID BORAKS
For the past couple of years, Davidson College’s Connor eating house and Flatiron Kitchen + Taphouse have teamed for a “Drink Pink” fundraiser for breast cancer research. This year, they’re going in whole different direction – trading a night of drinking for a daytime festival in Flatiron’s back parking that organizers hope will raise more money for the cause. The Flatiron Fall Festival will run Saturday, Oct. 20, from 11 a.m. to 3 pm, out back at 215 S. Main St., Davidson.
Several hundred people are expected at the event, which will feature music by The Stoney Creek Boys of Cornelius, a cornhole tournament, a silent auction, pumpkin and face painting and more. Read the full story
