Folks back home in Mount Airy are attempting to break a Guiness World Record by having over 2,000 doing the Twist on Main Street. The record for such a "Twist-off" is 1,692. Will Marion will be singing the National Anthem (yes, that's our cousin!) Preregistration is encouraged, as each twister needs a number. Pre-register at Marion's Jewelry or Something Different on Main Street, where T-shirts for the event are also available. Twisting will begin at 6:00 p.m. and dancers must twist for 5 full minutes.
The cost to participate is a $1 donation to Yokefellow Ministries, which provides a food pantry and utility assistance for those who qualify. For more information, call the Mount Airy Chamber of Commerce, at (336) 786-6116.
