Special Needs Kids Day is Thursday Sept 29th from 1 p– 3 pm   Leave a comment

Mark your calendar for Thursday, September 29th from 1 to 3 PM for the “Special Needs Kids Day” special time at Denver Days.  For you, your parents or guardians and your brothers or sisters, Denver Days will be open with rides free of charge and food/drink and a great time!


This event has been held annually at Denver Days and this year will be sponsored again by The Hecht Team, Bob Hecht and Nicole Hecht, Realtors with Coldwell Banker United at Lake Norman.  When talking about the Special Needs Kids Day last year, Nicole Hecht said “just seeing the kids and the smiles on their faces made this all worthwhile last year and we really look forward to the 2011 event.”  Nicole continued “the parents each told us how happy they were that this time was set aside for them, and that they did not feel comfortable taking their child to Denver Days or any county fair with rides, when there is a crowd.  This afternoon gives them the time and space and the kids love the rides.”

All proceeds from Denver Days are dedicated toward East Lincoln Rescue Park   Leave a comment

After years in discussions, the “East Lincoln Rescue Park” is moving toward a reality and we hope to have a ground breaking soon!  All proceeds from Denver Days 2011 are dedicated toward the park project, designed for adults and kids from eastern Lincoln County and beyond. 


The East Lincoln Rescue Squad provided vital emergency services to the citizens of eastern Lincoln County from 1977 through 2009.  The all-volunteer squad worked tirelessly for many years.  They gave their time for training, answered emergency calls 24/7 and gave of themselves for our benefit. 


When, in 2009 Lincoln County did not renew the contract for emergency services, the squad decided that the community who had supported them all these years should be the beneficiary.  All equipment and vehicles were distributed throughout the county to other emergency organizations.  The building and land on Hwy. 16 was donated to the Denver Lake Norman Rotary Club Foundation, a nonprofit organization which has leased long term 32 acres on Galway Lane on which to create the “East Lincoln Rescue Park.”


The Foundation has an approved master plan and is fund-raising so phase one may be started.  The plan shows 2-3 multi-purpose fields (soccer, lacrosse, football), playground, walking trails, picnic areas, dog park and disc golf.  Once the park is completed, it will become the permanent location for Denver Days.


For updates, please visit and click on the Park button.  If you would consider making a donation toward the park project, your donation may be tax-deductible.  Please contact Guy Cline at  guy.cline@ubs.comor call 828-381-5266 for information.

There is space for up to 25 artists to show and sell their work. Come on out, purchase that special piece of art for a gift or to hang in an office or studio. Meet some community artists. If you do not see your favorite local artist at this event, it might be because they are busy gearing up for the upcoming Denver Art Trail  and finishing up their work for sale in that event. Support our local talent. We hope to see you at both places!
