Pick of the day: Weed and Seed goes to NAACP

The Vance County chapter of the NAACP gets its chance to endorse Henderson’s proposed Weed and Seed zone during its meeting at 7 p.m. at the Gateway Center on Garnett Street. Still to come, among other endorsements, are the Vance County Board of Education and the Clean Up Henderson Committee during August meetings. A letter of intent to apply for official Weed and Seed recognition is due to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Raleigh by Aug. 31.
