Upcoming events

Rescheduled Veterans Day Parade is Saturday at 10 a.m.


- ASHEBORO — It hasn’t rained often this fall, but Mother Nature has picked her spots well, much to the chagrin of Randolph County residents.

The Fall Festival in October was postponed for the third straight year by a visit from Hurricane Ian, rain knocked out trick-or-treating on Halloween night by coming down only during the prime 5-8 p.m. time and last weekend several Veterans Day events were canceled because of remnants of another hurricane.

This time, at least, the Veterans Day Parade was able to be rescheduled for this Saturday at 10 a.m. 

The parade begins on Church Street, proceeds to Sunset Avenue and then briefly onto Fayetteville Street before ending at the Veterans Memorial on Worth Street.

Walk Thru the Past on Sunday will look at veterans


- ASHEBORO — Ricky Allred will lead visitors on another Walk Thru the Past on Sunday, Nov. 20, beginning at 2 p.m. in the old Asheboro Cemetery, 160 West Salisbury St., in Asheboro.

Each month, Allred takes visitors on a tour of the cemetery to hear and share some history of the people who have helped form the Asheboro and Randolph County that we enjoy today.

But each November, his walk honors just Armed Forces veterans, past and present, who are “residents” in the cemetery.

Allred said that newly available resources have yielded additional information, particularly on local WWI veterans, so expect some new stories regarding old friends this time out.


RhinoLeap’s ‘Every Brilliant Thing’ continues


- ASHEBORO — RhinoLeap will present “Every Brilliant Thing” every Sunday and Monday in November at Four Saints Brewing Company from 7-8:30 each night. 

Performances are also scheduled for Fridays and Saturdays from Nov. 18-26 at STARworks in Star.

A single storyteller will take you through the story of a young boy who attempts to cure his mother’s depression by creating a list of the best things in the world. But when life deals a bitter blow, the list proves to be helpful to the son in ways that it could never be for the mother. 

Tickets for either site can be purchased for $25 at RhinoLeap.com/live. Seating is limited.


Hughes combo has book signing at Brightside


- ASHEBORO — Join Donna and Loraye Hughes at Brightside Gallery, 170 Worth Street, for their first Asheboro book signing on Nov. 26 from noon to 3 p.m. 

Their first book collaboration is “Miss Ginny The Guinea,” a children’s book about a guinea hen that followed them out of the woods and took up living on their farm on Loraye’s patio. 

Donna, the family wordsmith, wrote the book and Loraye painted and shot photos of most of the illustrations. 

After 30 years with Randolph County schools teaching elementary school and serving in different administrative posts, she retired to the farm where she could enjoy her horses, gardening, floral horticulture, and teaching piano and voice.

Donna is a well-known area musician and a busy local realtor.
