Davie County Reviews

1 review
I love my hometown! I am from a small county in North Carolina. The way that I was grown up was to love and care for all people, no matter what the circumstances. As I am growing older I am realizing what makes this county so great. It is not the amazing sunsets or awesome high school football games, but it's the people. It's the people in this county that are willing to give their jacket to the poor, it's the people who are not afraid to step out of their comfort zones to help their neighbor out in times of need. The people in our community keep us strong and hold us together. If one of us goes down, we all come running to see how we can help. If one of us achieves something big, we all celebrate! I am forever grateful for the community that I was blessed to grow up in and I can't wait to raise a family of my own here!
