A Hickory group is looking to make a difference in the city. Calling themselves the “Friends of Hickory,” the plan is to raise enough money to build a park downtown.
"We believe that a lot of the answers and assets of Hickory are already here. We just need to be able to organize a little bit and get people together,” said Adrian Holtzman. “So, we thought if we could get people together and organize, we could actually achieve some things."
