Mary Ann Farrell and her husband, Gary Blankenship pleaded with the Clemmons Village Council to accept a tract of land and make it a park to honor her late parents, Joe and Margaret Farrell.

Mary Ann Farrell grew up in Clemmons in the 1950s.

The council had reservations about making the land into a park because of funding, a lack of parking spaces, and the number of people that might use a “passive park.”

Clemmons Mayor Nat Swanson told Farrell and her husband to wait until after the meeting was over to make a different proposal to Town Manager Al Dillon.

Sarah McGee, Laura Tucker, Ben Marion and Chris Richardson, students at Clemmons Elementary, advanced to the finals of the Hoop Shoot Free Throw Contest.

Antwuane Buey became the fifth member of the West Forsyth football team to sing a grant-in-aid with Concord (West Virginia) College. Buey, a standout nose tackle and fullback for the Titans, joined teammates Jeff Dunn, Marion Hawkins, Oscar Braun and Ed Walker on the Concord team.

Jason Lott of the Pistons led the Senior Boys Division of the Clemmons Cougars in scoring at 29.2 points per game. The Hornets (junior boys), Lakers (junior girls), Pistons (intermediate boys), Warriors (senior boys) and Cavs (senior girls) were leading their leagues in wins.

Clemmons received $47,000 in revenue, a new record, from the ABC Store during the most recent quarter. Town Manager Al Dillon said that the amount was $20,000 more than what it usually received.

Robbie Patterson was awarded his Eagle Scout Award in a ceremony at Pine Grove United Methodist Church. Patterson, the son of Bob and Gail Patterson, was a member of Boy Scout Troop 712.

The village council approved a list of four highway needs to be included on the Transportation Improvement Program.

These were widening Lewisville-Clemmons Road from Peacehaven Road to 158; widening of 158 from Lewisville-Clemmons Road to Harper Road; building an Idols Road extension east from Hampton Road to Stratford Road; and extending Idols Road west from Clemmons to Davie County.
