This morning I enjoyed the beautiful drive from Elizabeth City to the ReMax Alpha office in Moyock. Our office is always busy, agents coming and going, people in and out, it is a great place to work and the atmosphere is upbeat. This is a great time to buy in Carolina, so many choices and low interest rates. One of our agents, Gretchen Keeter, came up to the front desk and she had a great big smile on her face. That smile is recognizable because it can mean only one thing, clients are on their way to the office. When you ask some real estate agents what they enjoy the most about their jobs, some will answer the money, others will say I get to help families find their dream homes, but this top gun agent enjoys helping clients finish their dream home. Today is a particularly special day because something very exciting awaits her clients in the conference room. The family gets to pour over an array of samples; cabinets, counter tops, tile, carpet and choices of board and batten siding and shutters for their home. The clients, Barry and Linda Dailey and their son, Stephen, have purchased a custom built home in Snowden Crossing. The home is built by Quality Homes of Currituck. I’m sure when these homeowners have settled in their new home and time has past by , they will remember this special agent who helped them choose the decor of their dream home.

It is Pet Love Week at the Currituck Animal Shelter from Feb.14th-Feb.20th. Before the week is out we want our readers to know about some special ladies that are volunteering behind the scenes. Nicole and Elyssa are Moyock Middle School students that spend afternoons with the pets. One special kitty named Shawn came into the shelter and was not able to use his back legs. These girls have helped him through rehabilitation exercises and he is fully recovered. Nicole and Elyssa love animals and they socialize them by walking the dogs, holding and showing love to the cats to prepare them for their future forever homes. We can’t praise them enough for all their time they give the shelter. What role models they are for their peers!
The ALAL and Re/Max Alpha would also like to thank PJ Hovert for her constant support and donations, and Helen Cherry from the Tulls Creek area for her donations. Please help the animals today and stop by or donate.

4-H Backpacks For Kids
The program was launched April 15, 2011 and has been successfully operating for nine months. Just recently these outstanding community leaders were recognized for supporting this worthwhile effort for Currituck’s school children. Larry Gaither, owner of Re/Max Alpha Realty, Moyock, Sheriff Susan Johnson, Currituck County Sheriffs’ Department, Butch Petrey, Currituck County Commissioner and Ellen Owens, 4-H Agent. Thank you for everything you do to make a difference!
Cooperative Extension in Currituck County officially launched the 4-H Backpacks For Kids Program on Friday, April 15. 2011. This program will provide nourishment to school children who are in need of food for the weekend.
Why is the Backpacks for Kids program needed? According to an analysis by Feeding America, a hunger relief organization with which the food banks are affiliated, North Carolina ranks as the second-worst state in the nation when it comes to children under 5 lacking regular access to nutritious food and as 10th-worst for children of all ages.
Weekends are a critical time for low-income children, as they have access to fewer food resources, such as the free school lunches they receive during the week. Each child receives enough food for six full meals, including cereal or pop tarts, a protein source such as tuna fish or beef stew, peanut butter, canned vegetables and fruit, soup, juice boxes and a snack such as peanut butter crackers or yogurt snacks. We also use the backpacks as a medium through which we share nutrition education with the children’s parents, helping to reinforce healthy eating and lifestyles at home. Through this program, we can reach children at-risk of hunger in a safe and easily accessible setting.
Approximate cost to feed one child twice monthly is twenty dollars.
For more information about the program, please contact 4-H Agent, Ellen Owens, 232-2262 or email@example.com.
