Last night's First Friday was one of the best ever. In spite of the rain, people were out enjoying themselves, strolling along Elm Street- and beyond. There was plenty to do from Center City Park and the Cultural Arts Center on Davie Street, all the way down to Gate City Boulevard. We had the good fortune to meet David and Flora who were dining outside at the Snack Bar on South Elm Street. David is originally from Virginia but now calls Greensboro home. He works in construction. Flora works at Wal-Mart, where the two first met. When asked what they like most about First Friday, David didn't miss a beat in replying that he loved the fact that they could spend time together and get out and have fun in the community. They have been dating for two months. By the looks of those smiles and as much as they seem to enjoy each other, we predict they will be together for a very long time!
Happy Saturday. May we all have people in our lives who are as positive, happy, and as appreciative of each other as David and Flora!
