Statesville Awaiting Decision by Guinness…

We applied for the Fast Track judging package so we are told we will hear the decision from Guinness no later than Tuesday, April 28.  I really, really think we WILL get the nod from Guinness because our volunteer committee went to such great detail to meet all the Guinness requirements.  How cool it will be if we learn that Statesville is the first community in the U.S. to hold the longest non-stop musica concert by multiple artists!  Woo-hoo, how neat will that be!

Even if we don’t get the record for some reason, it was an awesome event for a community this size to successfully pull off…between 750 & 800 performers of all ages…we know we had a fiddler who was 5 years old and we know of at least one octenegarian who performed.

Also, I want to share also that this weekend our community had three very inspiring celebrations:

  • Saturday at 2:00 I was invited to speak to about 200 youth who worked on community projects Saturday for Global Youth Service Day.  What a great bunch of kids and LEADERS of tomorrow!
  • Saturday at 3:00 I attended our community’s new Boys & Girls Club which will serve mostly at-risk kids in our community.
  • Today, Sunday  our communtiy celebrated the Grand Opening of our NEW homeless shelter…and a GRAND celebration it was!

Stay tuned for an announcement in the next few days.  Statesville ROCKS!
