We are Activate Selma, a group of residents, volunteers, and business owners in Selma, North Carolina, revitalizing and uplifting our beloved rail community and all it has to offer!

We meet every Wednesday at 9 am at different locations around town. We support entrepreneurs!

We don't complain, we take action!

We made it to the FINAL FOUR -- voting starts April 1st

$100 Suitcase Challenge

The CHALLENGE (if you choose to accept it) is to grab a friend or two, put on your walking shoes (get those 10,000 steps in!) and fill a suitcase for under $100 while shopping here in Selma.
If you want to take AMTRAK, you won't have to drive and worry about finding a parking space. 
If you choose to drive into town and fill your CAR, then put 114 N. Raiford Street - Selma in your GPS and start your challenge.

Selma's Historic Union Depot is 3 blocks from downtown.  Head west on Railroad Street.  Raiford Street is the cross street and then head North on Raiford and Start Shopping!
