Hard to believe that on July 18, 1988, the first residents moved into The Pines retirement community in Davidson, at the end of Avinger Lane.

Twenty-five years ago, a determined group of Davidson residents, some with ties to Davidson College Presbyterian Church and Davidson College, saw a long-held dream come to fruition: The grand-opening of The Pines at Davidson. It was one of the area’s first continuing care retirement communities and offered something previously not available here: a retirement option that didn’t require moving away from Davidson.

Our Towns Habitat for Humanity is getting ready to celebrate its 25th anniversary this October, and how else to do it than by building a house? To do that, the Lake Norman area Habitat affiliate recently began a campaign to raise $75,000 by Aug. 1.
The fundraiser actually may need slightly less than that, according to Our Towns Habitat interim director Enrique Sanchez. An anonymous donor has offered an additional $25,000 if the group raises $50,000 by Aug. 1.
