When is the Event?
In celebration of N. C. Small Farms Appreciation Week, March 25-31, the Currituck County Center of North Carolina Cooperative Extension in Barco will be hosting a meet and greet event for Currituck County small farm producers. The event will take place on Friday, March 30, 2012 from 4:30 – 8:00 p.m. As residents and other local vendors visit with growers, they will learn where to purchase products, such as fresh eggs, fruits and vegetables, pick-your-own strawberries or buy flowers for planting – all locally grown or produced in Currituck County. There is national initiative to ‘know your farmer, know your food’ which has gained in popularity across North Carolina as the number of farmers’ markets have increased. The number of small farms producing local foods has grown to nearly 4,000 statewide. Sustainable agriculture, such as small farms, helps grow the economy of rural communities while providing families with a healthier food supply. Anyone needing more information concerning this event should contact the Currituck County Extension Center at 232-2262 or email email@example.com

When I met my friend, Leeann, we hit it off immediately. The parallels in our lives made for an instant kinship. We met at a Coast Guard event Leeann’s husband is active Coast Guard as was my fiance (now husband). This is the obvious connection. As we started sharing our stories we found another common bond, caring for an aging parent. I moved to North Carolina to care for my father, who’s congested heart failure no longer allowed him to live alone. He needed support and assistance with his day to day activities. Leeann has cared for her mother who lives with brain damage as a result from a brain tumor, providing the same support and day to day assistance. Most recently, Leeann’s mom has had additional medical complications and is now living at the Assisted Living Community, Currituck House here in Moyock. Leeann now takes on even more care-giving responsibilities, as she is an active volunteer at Currituck House and still caring for her mom and tending to all her mom’s errands, shopping and taking her to and from doctor appointments and anything else that arises. Leeann could ask for a break but instead she asks for greater awareness and more community involvement.
There is a growing number of adult children caring for their parents, 22.4 million households according to AARP. On average, an adult child caregiver can spend 18 hours per week caring for one’s parent providing companionship, running errands, attending doctor appointments and assisting with personal care. It is important as a community we fix in the mind our elders, our aging parents and honor and appreciate them individually and collectively. The task one person takes on alone can be accomplished by a circle of people creating a unified sense of accomplishment and community. Slow down and get involved, the difference you make in some one else’s life will most definitely make a difference in yours. Leeann and I, along with so many others know the simple truth of this. It’s just the going it alone that makes it difficult.
So, please feel inspired to help another, make a difference and get involved in our community.
With that said, there is a great opportunity to get involved coming up soon at the Currituck House Carnival. The assisted living program provides all the basic care and needs of its residents, but has no funding for the Resident Activity Program.
On October 15, 2011 from 11:00AM until 3:00PM Currituck House is having a “Fall Ball” fundraiser to raise money for the Resident Activity Program. This program will be able to provide entertainment, transportation, entry fees, and other services to our residents who would not have access to these events otherwise.
I am asking for the generosity of our community to provide silent auction items and/or monetary donations to help us reach our goal. Volunteers are also needed to provide entertainment or static displays to attract customers. In return Currituck House will make sure to advertise that you are a sponsor of the event.
For more information about the carnival and participating in the silent auction you can reach Leeann Botzenhart at 252-202-5441 or Carolyn Hewlett at 252-435-1024.
I will see you there!

Everyone knows when a new business is coming to this town. So it was no surprise when the idea of opening an AJ Gators in the old Rip Tide building came about everyone new immediately! There was talk for months about what it would be like and if it would succeed. There was talk of what it would look like inside and how the service and food would be like. Now that AJ Gators is open we have heard nothing but amazing things. Affordable food and drinks, kind people, and a great vibe; three things that a new restaurant need and AJ Gators has them all! They even had weekly specials. Tuesday is All You Can Eat Wings from 5:30-8:30 pm $13.49 or two for $25.99.
