This Weekend in Stanly County


Tuesday, May 28, 2013 —

Saturday morning and it’s Farmers’ Market time at Market Station in downtown Albemarle. Fresh produce, home baked goodies, crafts, flowers, plants and more are all there for the picking. The market starts at 8 am and ends at noon. Come early to find the pick of the crop.

On Saturday evening the Melissa Kathleen School of Dance Recital begins at 6 pm at the Agri-Civic Center. The school has proudly been serving the Albemarle area since 1998. Dance instruction and education is offered for ages 3 through adult in the art of ballet, tap, jazz, acrobatics, lyrical, pointe and hip hop. Conveniently located in the Historic District of Downtown Albemarle on North 1st Street, Melissa Kathleen's School of Dance provides a fun and safe learning environment for those interested in studying the art of dance. Parents are able to leave their children without worry while they shop, work out or eat - all within minutes of the studio. Parents also have access to our free Wi-Fi in the waiting area. Take in the recital and applaud what these students have accomplished.

As summer cranks up the heat, Stanly County cranks up the fun in the coming weekends. Stay tuned.
