Historic charm, a bustling downtown, that small town feel. There is much to LOVE about Matthews. Over four weeks in the summer of 2019, we came together as a community to express our love of Matthews and pride for our community.
Week 1 - "Love where you live!"
The kickoff week for Love Matthews focused on encouraging people to show their love for Matthews. Officially launched at Food Truck Friday on July 26 in Stumptown Park, Love Matthews began with some fun giveaways, T-shirts available for purchase, and a BIG surprise at Stumptown Park.
The giant "M" in the Town Green where people were invited to write messages telling us what they love about Matthews!
Week 2 - "Love where you live: The Great Outdoors"
Our beautiful parks and greenway are some of the best parts of our town. This week, we celebrated our love of the outdoors and encouraged folks to get out and explore, as well as ways we can all work together to keep our town looking beautiful.
We held a FREE Yoga class in Stumptown Park on Friday, August 2 at 9:00 a.m.
Week 3 - "Love where you live: Arts & Culture"
This week celebrated our love and appreciation for all things art and culture.
Rock Painting Party at Squirrel Lake Park on Tuesday, August 13 at 10:00 a.m.
Art Walk Challenge through Downtown Matthews. From Friday, August 9 through August 16, residents were invited to participate in the Art Walk Challenge. Those that completed the challenge were entered to win a $100 gift card to a Matthews business of their choice and 4 tickets to a performance by the Matthews Playhouse.
Week 4 - "Love where you live: Why We Serve"
This week is all about why we, as Town of Matthews staff members, love serving this great town.
Matthews Touch-A-Truck was held on Saturday, August 17 from 10:00 am until 1:00 pm at Stumptown Park. We had a fantastic lineup of trucks and equipment for kids to explore (including a fire truck, police cars, a backhoe and so much more!)
