Holiday week-ends are filled with unique events and lots of excitement and fun. If you are Clay Aiken, the word busy should be in the mix too!
On Friday night, Clay attended the 89th Session of the Durham District Conference for Central North Carolina. The event was held at Mitchell Chapel A.M.E Zion Church in Pittsboro. According to Randolph S. Voller, the Chairman of the North Carolina Democratic Party, they were the guests of Rev. Anthony Davis and the presiding Elder Dr. L.A. Miller. Elder Miller invited 2nd Congressional District Candidate, Clay Aiken, and 12th Congressional District Candidate, Alma Adams to address the congregation.
On Saturday, Clay traveled to Taylortown, North Carolina to be a part of their Labor Day week-end celebration. I had never heard of Taylortown so I looked it up and found that this lovely community is in Moore County. According to the city website, in 2012, there were 786 residents of the town.
Taylortown celebrates Labor Day Week-end with three days of unique and exciting events. On Friday night, the celebration started with a dinner, dance and fashion show at the Southern Pines Elks Club.
At noon on Saturday, Clay Aiken participated in the Taylortown Labor Day parade. It looks like he was a popular part of the parade and stopped for many “selfies”.
After the parade, Taylortown had a cook-out with music and games. I wonder if Clay had time to enjoy some good food and music!
Twitter was the source for the report that Clay was at the theatre on Saturday night. It is always fun to see posts from people that are so pleased and excited to see Clay:

According to the Theatre Raleigh website:
Hot Summer Nights at The Kennedy began in the summer of 2005 in an effort to bring a smaller and more intimate professional theatre to Downtown Raleigh. By having a strong group of producers who each have an extensive background in the arts, we are able to share an array of shows with our audiences by combining some of the best talent from both North Carolina and New York. From musicals to comedies to thought provoking dramas, Hot Summer Nights is proud to continue the excellence of bringing you our critically acclaimed summer series. Join us! The Heat is On!
I look forward to following Clay and his campaign as he continues to celebrate Labor Day Week-end.
