      I have enjoyed reading your article about the town of Dunn, and learning some new information today. A friend of mine who I was in a bible study with some years back, was from North Carolina and he said it was beautiful and very green there. My parents had also gone on vacation in North Carolina, but I'm not sure what part of the state they visited......Thanks so much for sharing about your town!
