TO ALL CAR FANS
We’ve just been given word that the 2018 Pecan Festival and car show in Whiteville, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 3 has been canceled. Because of the recent hurricane, Whiteville has sustained major damage which can’t possibly be repaired before the festival. Roadways are washed out and all of downtown is flooded. The damage from Hurricane Florence has caused more damage than last year’s Hurricane Matthew. The committee has determined that the festival should be canceled until next year.
