Hidden jewel No. 1: Lake Wilson.

No. 2: The Wilson Parks and Recreation Department. Good friend in Greenville tells me they have their eyes on David Lee.

No. 3: The Whirligig Park.

There was not a bigger skeptic than myself. We have taken out-of-town guests to see the park on numerous occasions.

Fascinating was the word used to describe it. Every visitor to Wilson should be shown this “fascinating” exhibit.

When national and statewide athletic events are being held at Gillette Park, make certain each vehicle is presented with information about this “jewel”. What a great attraction for between games/matches!

Congratulations to all those who made this dream a reality for Wilson.

And, thanks to Vollis Simpson for your genius.
