I attended the First Friday Art Walk in Elizabeth City this month and found the community in full support of this event. The weather was beautiful and the stores that participated were busy. This is a good time time to get out and experience the downtown area. It is an opportunity to meet new people, see old friends, enjoy the art and have a good time. Here is the information so you can mark it on your calendar now.
Every First Friday of the month many art studios and businesses downtown are open from 5pm until 7ish for our First Friday Art Walk!

We ran across this event on our Facebook page and wanted to provide the community information about the Girls Inc. of the Albemarle. Sure we have all driven down Road St. past the cute little white house with the flowers out front. Sometimes we are stopped by the school bus dropping the girls off after school. What I have witnessed each and every time is the connection these young girls have with the caregivers that meet them. The girls are always happy and run and hug their caregivers. I think to myself, those people have fostered all this love and attention. They are really doing a great job!
With local roots dating to 1950 and national status since 1945, Girls Incorporated® of the Albemarle has responded to the changing needs of girls and their communities through research-based programs and advocacy that empower girls to reach their full potential and to understand, value, and assert their rights.
Who We Serve
In 2011, we served over 200 girls in North Eastern North Carolina. We accept all school aged girls without distinction of race, color, creed or national origin: of those served directly, 46% identify as Black/African American; 37% White/European American/Anglo; 5% Latina/Hispanic; and 12% Multiracial. 30% of the girls we serve live in families earning $30,000 or less a year and nearly half are from single-parent households, most of which are headed by women.
It’s that time again, Moyock! It’s time to get in the holiday spirit with the 20th annual Christmas Parade at the Currituck Cooperative Extension Center. The parade will begin at 9:00am on Saturday, December 3rd. The parade will begin on Airport Road and will travel south towards Highway 158, then it will turn down Shortcut Road and head towards Aviation Parkway where it will finish up at the Currituck Extension Center.
The parade is sponsored by the Currituck Extension and Community Association, along with the Currituck County Sheriff’s Department and the Currituck County Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge #89.
After the parade, you can head inside and visit Santa. You can also enjoy the 59th annual Christmas Tree Lighting! In case of rain, these events will all take place on Saturday, December 10th. Mark your calendars, Currituck! It is going to be a lot of fun!
