Organizers of the Carolina Thread Trail want to hear from you. They invite you to  join them at a public Open House meeting at the Matthews Community Center (100 East McDowell Street in Matthews) from 5-7 pm so you can share your feedback and learn more about The Thread. The Thread Trail initiative is an effort to encourage 15 counties in the south-central Piedmont of North Carolina and  north-central South Carolina to create a large, interconnected trail and greenway system.
