WE MADE IT !!!!!!!
It has taken almost two years and lots of donations from great people all over Selma and beyond, but the Selma Civic Center Team has reached its goal. On July 10th, representatives from the United States Department of Agriculture appeared before the Town Council to announce that they were awarding a Rural Business Enterprise Grant in the amount of $197,266 to the Town of Selma in order for the civic center project to move ahead with the installation of heating and air-conditioning, electrical, sprinkler/fire alarm, and data systems. This grant brings the total amount raised for the project over the $300,000
From Ann Williams - "We are very grateful to all the citizens who have purchased bricks and made personal and corporate donations. These very special monies allowed us to install a new roof and build our new large restroom addition along with restoring the historic windows, hiring an engineer, replacing the gable ends of the building, and beginning the restoration of the original floor. And now, this wonderful grant will help us with the interior systems that are necessary to get this building open to the public. Our team of 10 individuals is extremely excited and will be working hard over the next few months to move this project toward completion."

Selma, North Carolina has a rich history. You have played a major role in making our community great. Thank you! Like you, we want Selma to embark on a new era of prosperity. In order for Selma to grow economically, we need to be able to attract industrial, commercial and retail businesses to our community. We want these businesses to bring jobs and new neighbors.
One of the best ways to begin marketing our community to economic developers and site selection consultants is by honestly assessing the current Selma, North Carolina brand. For the past few months we have done just that. We have worked closely with leaders from diverse backgrounds within our community. Together we have evaluated all the ways we have marketed Selma currently and in the past. It was determined that the best way for us to begin the process of improving our messaging was by enhancing the Selma, North Carolina logo and tagline.
Today, we are very proud to share with you our proposed new Selma, North Carolina logo and tagline. We love Selma. And we know that you do, too. We are proud of our new direction and hope you enjoy this first new step towards the revitalization of our community. Like the tagline reads Selma, North Carolina is truly the crossroads of tradition and innovation. It’s just time to let the world in on our little secret.

It is with a heavy heart that the Town of Selma mourns the passing of our Town Clerk, Brenda Thorne. On July 11, 2001, Brenda began her employment with the Town of Selma. She started as an Administrative Assistant and was promoted to Deputy Town Clerk in 2012. In 2015, she was named Interim Town Clerk and in September of 2016, she assumed the official role. Brenda Thorne will truly be missed in the Town of Selma and in the hearts of all the people that she touched. We love you, Brenda!
