#SSStrong Day set for April 22

SMITHFIELD, North Carolina— There is strength in numbers, and school system principals, staff, and students are on a mission to showcase the strong community ties within the towns of Smithfield and Selma. On Saturday, April 22, planners—to include Johnston County Schools and the Greater Smithfield-Selma Area Chamber of Commerce— will host #SSStrong Day, a special event featuring entertainment provided by school groups, vendors, free games, and hayrides from 11 a.m. to 1 pm. on the football field at Smithfield-Selma Senior High School.

“We are extremely excited about this inaugural event and we’re eager to show our continued support for our towns and for the quality educational services available to our residents. It is imperative that we work together in order to make progress,” said Corina Knott, 2017 Chamber of Commerce Board Chair.

“We’re so thankful to serve as the provider of great educational services throughout this county, and are especially grateful when communities partner to make the quality of living for our residents even greater,” said Dr. D. Ross Renfrow, Superintendent of Schools.

The public is invited to this free event, and there is space for additional vendors.
