Welcome is just a friendly place to be, and to many, this is a fact. The town of Welcome, North Carolina is such a close-knit community, where almost everyone knows each other and help in any way they can. In this town, football brings us all together, especially at North Davidson!

Welcome is a very small town, that almost no one, who does not live there, knows of. Welcome contains an elementary, middle and high school, a few different restaurants and gas stations and one store. Although, there are not many things to do on the weekend or anytime, Welcome is a great town to live in. Welcome has taught me how to appreciate living in a small town. Living here will change your views on many things in life. Additionally, the best thing about living in such a small town, is knowing almost everyone. It is a good feeling knowing there are a bunch of people there to help you when you need it.
Welcome is a wonderful small town which becomes a part of you no matter how long you spend here. The people are always welcoming, genuine, and always have that southern charm that is a staple of the town. it's a place that I never want to forget.
