Choose the cover for the "Official Guide to Wake Forest"

In early summer the Town of Wake Forest will print and distribute to all Wake Forest residents an updated version of the Official Guide to Wake Forest. Published most recently in December 2015, the guide is a comprehensive handbook about all things related to Wake Forest and an invaluable resource for everyone who lives here - both newcomers and long-time residents alike.

The Communications Department is inviting area residents to choose the cover for the 2019 edition of the guide. Two cover options are presented above that represent the wonderful charm and spirit of Wake Forest. The option that receives the most votes will serve as the cover.

The deadline to vote is Friday, April 12.
