Happy Tuesday!

After all the rain we had, all we need to know for today is that there's a chance of dry weather. Phew.
Celebrating Father's Day in Gaston County

Just in case you waited until the last minute, we've put together a list of suggestions on how you can celebrate Father's Day in Gaston County this weekend (although the list has something everyone can enjoy even after Father's Day).
See where to find a patio, grab a beer, eat a good meal, where to find a unique gift idea, and where to play in our guide.
An upcoming dog bar is hoping to open its doors AND be the launchpad for a neighborhood rebrand. The Thirsty Dog is looking to be the kickoff for an effort to make North Belmont "NoBel".

Interior design is a bit of an artsy science. It can all be a bit overwhelming when you scroll Pinterest or Instagram. Luckily, Brie Hays (of Harlow Hays Interior Design) is the guide you didn't know you needed but absolutely must meet. She shared some home trends she's embracing at the moment.

Featured Partner - Remembering Austin
Sunday marked 2 years since the passing of Austin

His parents created a way to remember their son & help others potentially avoid going through this horrible situation.

"Our son Austin passed away from an accidental FENTANYL overdose on June 9, 2017.  We didn’t know anything about opioids, about how they affect our brain and about how powerfully addictive they are.  If we had known what we know today, we could have saved our son Austin.  We don’t want another family to go through this horrible pain, so we became involved with the Gaston Controlled Substances Coalition to inform others the realities of opioid addiction and remove the stigma associated with this addiction. We ask that you become informed, get involved, and become part of the solution."
