Weekend Roundup Ends, But Local Tips Carry On via Our Website
After a joy-filled two years of sharing all the great events in our beloved city of Winston-Salem via this newsletter, the lack of financial support for these efforts means the Weekend Roundup will come to an end, with our last newsletter will going out next Thursday, April 24, 2014. We appreciate every ounce of your support over the years. The good news: our website is not going away so you can always go there to continue learning about our city and all the amazing gifts it has to offer us every single day – not just on the weekends. Rock on Winston-Salem!
