Upper Chatham, Lower Alamance (UCLA)

I had lunch with my friend Phil at the Merlion restaurant in Southern Village. The food was great and the conversation was even better.

Phil told me that people have started referring to where I live as “UCLA” which stands for “Upper Chatham, Lower Alamance”, both being counties in North Carolina that border each other. The term is localized around the town of Saxapahaw – a funky little place about ten miles from my farm.

I think it is cool that our area of the state is developing enough of an identity to rate its own acronym.
