We’re starting the month of May off strong with another addition to our Best of Chatham series. The spotlight is shining on Chatham County’s very own D. Walsh Construction Co. One of their most recent projects involved the building of the Roland’s personal residence, so they come highly recommended. If you are in the area of Chatham, Orange, Alamance and Wake counties, your next construction project needs the touch of D. Walsh Construction!

The month of February is all about showing love to those you care about. While the way in which you do so may be different than in previous years, the impact is just as resounding.

2021 starts up by serving you tunes straight to your door. Bynum Front Porch is a staple for the Chatham County community and continues their mission of connecting neighbors through celebration and song.

The sounds are carrying farther, all the way to your home, this year. Their Winter Live Music Series shows will also be streaming on Facebook Saturday nights from January to August at 6:30 p.m. Can’t make the virtual or live show? All of their shows will be linked directly on their website!
The presents have been wrapped, some even opened. Stockings have been hung with care, awaiting a visit from a resident of the North Pole.

End the holidays and welcome the New Year by keeping the festivities going!

This holiday season, shoppers can expect some delay in gift delivery as online retail is expected to grow by nearly 20 percent.
