HELLO:

W

elcome to ‘Discover Caswell’. Representing the Caswell County Chamber of Commerce, it is an honor to be asked to provide an introductory

letter to this magazine. About six years ago, I moved back home to Caswell County after having lived out west for many years. What a surprise when I began to ‘Discover Caswell.’ It has in fact become an adventure of a lifetime. Since my childhood and young adult years were spent here, when I came back home, I just naturally assumed that I knew all about Caswell and felt there was nothing here to ‘discover.’ Then, the more I become engaged in the day-to-day life in the business community, my neighbors, one on one with the people here, the more I actually ‘discovered.’ Some discoveries… We have an arboretum! Who knew? And an active group of volunteers at the horticulture club that maintains it. There is a park in Yanceyville. The Maud Gatewood Park… what a neat little get away at lunch time to take a quick walk

thought? The Animal Park at the Conservator’s Center helps provide a final home for animals that otherwise might not experience their golden years. Alpacas live here. At Raynay Alpaca Farm, a beautifully kept farm, there are amazing animals and a wonderful gift shop that carries many alpaca wool items. Incredibly cool repurposed home décor items at Carolina Vintage and Sunflower Salvage An amazing display of art at the Yanceyville Municipal Building (The Maud Gatewood Art Museum) and at the Caswell Arts Council in the CoSquare space. A co-op of chicken (egg) farmers that have developed a superior quality egg product that is in unbelievable demand in surrounding areas (full disclosure, I joined those farmers and now also sell eggs through the PPFC organization too). A Milton family that is ‘you tube’ famous and has 100s of hours of video for the world to see online (This Farm Wife).

PCC’s Center for Educational & Agricultural Development serves as an economic development and community project

T

he Center for Educational and Agricultural Development (CEAD) is the future home of Piedmont Community College’s (PCC) Agribusiness Technology Program and a center for economic development in Caswell County. The campus will be located in Pelham, NC and include agricultural education, economic development, and community resources. A food hub, an incubator farm, and food retail opportunities will build opportunity for Caswell County farmers and food entrepreneurs. Educational opportunities through PCC and Cooperative Extension will focus on food and farm initiatives, while community facilities will encourage community health and wellness. The combination of these elements are designed not only to promote Caswell’s farm community but also to drive economic development that attracts new investments, builds new jobs in Caswell, and expands the county’s community and economic opportunities. “There’s a lot of synergy around the project overall – from community partners to the number of designers interested in being involved,” comments Ed Morrah, PCC’s ADA/OSHA Project Manager. This was evident in the Caswell County Commissioners’ meeting held in September 2019 when the county’s elected officials approved partnering with PCC. During that same meeting, multiple community members spoke highly about

the county joining forces with PCC on this specialized agricultural project. This Project Plan is a step towards a vibrant, energetic campus where many different parts of a healthy local food system work together and strengthen each other. The overall project captures many years of vision and leadership from dedicated community members at Piedmont Community College, Caswell County, the Piedmont Community College Foundation, Caswell County Cooperative Extension and the Danville Regional Foundation. “As we’ve moved forward with CEAD, we heard there was a need for a distribution space for local food pantries and various food distribution partners. This caused us to adjust our plan to add this space,” shared Dr. Pamela Senegal, President, Piedmont Community College. “If people are hungry, they can’t learn. We have to understand that we’re in this together as a community and need to ensure our neighbors have their basic needs met so they can thrive in other areas, such as education and being successful in their employment.” She continues to say, “We want this space to have not only a great impact for local farmers but also be for the overall betterment of the full community.” A groundbreaking will be held in April once a designer is selected to work on the 79-acre site that is expected to include a 15,000 square foot educational building including emergency shelter; a 6,000 square foot food hub; and a 10-12 acre incubator farm. ///

We are all in this together By Amanda Hodges Executive Director Caswell County Chamber of Commerce

W

orking together in a community is very rewarding work, but it is also challenging work. Whether a government entity, a town or county committee or commission, a non-government nonprofit or small businesses with owners in the community, each has its own goals and objectives that are its

first priority.

Ideally, we all are working toward a similar goal of servicing our customers, constituents, clients

or patrons and to be good and honorable representatives of the responsibilities we have been entrusted to in our individual roles. Working together for the greater good of the entire community while also accomplishing specific organizational goals takes work, hard work. It takes committed and often patient individuals working together to make it happen. The more involvement there is from the citizens, the better these efforts can match what the citizens want and need. Although people do not always agree on everything, that’s ok. Differences of opinion help us to better understand each other while also seeing other possible alternatives. Continuing to work together regardless of these situations, is what is making the Caswell community stronger. The community has received praise from groups outside of the area at both state and regional levels acknowledging that what our community leaders and members are doing is good, positive and benefiting all. Following is a recap of initiatives so you can learn more about how Caswell County has been leading the way in key areas of collaboration, growing the community economy and just plain good old fashioned, working together, to get to a better place for all. 14 | DISCOVER MAGAZINE | CASWELL


COMMUNITY CARING PARTNERSHIPS:

COVID Partnership The Caswell Health Department, Caswell County, EMS, Health Collaborative, Caswell Family Medical Center, Piedmont Health along with many other community partners connected weekly during the first several months of COVID to share updates, assist one another and alert others of situations that needed to be addressed. Coordination of services, sharing hours of operation of essential businesses, information on farm worker situations, sharing testing site information, grant funding opportunities and more were all discussed regularly. COVID Awareness Program Caswell Family Medical Center, Caswell County, and the Caswell Health Department partnered to develop and execute an awareness campaign for our county with signs and information packets. Signs were distributed to local businesses that completed a COVID safe checklist. The grant funding also allowed for television commercials featuring Caswell that aired on Piedmont area television stations. Creating Well-Being for the Community Caswell County has engaged in a program (the only rural county in the state) to build county policies that are equitable for all community members through a national program called the Government Alliance on Race and Equity (GARE). Racial equity is realized when race can no longer be used to predict life outcomes, and outcomes for all groups are improved. The team includes county staff and community members and was supported by the county commissioners. Feeding the Children and Others To feed the children when COVID hit, Caswell County Schools along with volunteers arranged for pick up meals and County Outreach Ministry also assisted in making sure no one went hungry. The Caswell Parish, Locust Hill UMC and Shade Grove UMC all assisted by opening their food panties and offered a hot meal service. Several businesses and funders also stepped up to sponsor hot meals and to help the efforts overall. As the community rallies to support these organizations, many continue to be fed regularly. To assist on a long term basis past COVID, the new CEAD center will also include resources to address assisting the county food pantries. Caring for Senior Citizens - Caswell Senior Center Tirelessly continuing on during COVID times, this organization provides food for our county’s seniors needing assistance via Meals on Wheels. With the power of a volunteer force that is resolute in their dedication to this, our seniors continue to be served. Caswell Veterans Having already served our community and nation to provide us the freedom for our way of life here in America, they continue to serve our community still. These individuals have rallied our community to join together to plan, raise the funding and build the Caswell County Veterans Memorial that was dedicated November 11, 2020. Even in the midst of a pandemic, these tireless individuals overcame the odds to get the project completed and dedicated. HELPING THE COMMUNITY WORK BETTER TOGETHER PARTNERSHIPS:

Broadband for Caswell With the need of county wide broadband brought front and center with COVID, the pressure in getting the access needed here, especially for the children of Caswell has never been stronger. Receiving attention from our legislative representatives in both Raleigh and Washington, DC, Caswell County government and community leaders have been working to leverage the current situation to push for changes faster. The partnerships for broadband actually exist in all of the areas shared in the update as the citizens and organizations are all pushing together for more attention to this matter. CASWELL | DISCOVER MAGAZINE | 15


HELPING THE COMMUNITY WORK BETTER TOGETHER PARTNERSHIPS (CONTINUED):

Caswell County Cooperative Extension Caswell County Extension has a complete team in place that has grown to provide our agriculture-based county more support. Caswell farmers have dedicated agents here to help; all is needed is for people to ask. Despite COVID, the group is very involved in the community partnering with the county, economic development, PCC, the Chamber, Caswell County Schools, and other groups. Volunteer Fire Departments These groups have worked together to set higher standards for the county’s safety allowing Caswell residents to experience lower rates for insurance because of the hard work and partnership across the county in all fire districts meeting and exceeding set standards. The safety of our communities depends on these dedicated individuals and for that we are grateful. Nonprofits, Government/Municipalities & Small Businesses Children: Assisting the Children of Caswell County, the Caswell County Partnership for Children works closely with the area elementary schools and early educators as well as volunteer community members to build a solid foundation for the critical formative years of Caswell children. Healthcare: Compassion Health Care (Caswell Family Medical Center) and Piedmont Health Services both have partnered with the Chamber of Commerce to provide discounted health care visits for employees of Chamber Member companies. This is not health insurance but does provide employees of Caswell County Chamber Members the opportunity to visit the medical center of their choice and receive quality health care at a reduced rate. Towns of Yanceyville & Milton and the County Partnership Based on conversations with long time members in the community, the work these groups are doing together to better serve the citizens of the towns and the county have been moving more smoothly in the past few years than ever before. The evidence is showing up in the projects and positive vibe among the community. Digital/Online Presence Partnerships Caswell County, The Towns of Yanceyville and Milton, Caswell Economic Development and the Caswell Chamber all partnered together developing a digital communications plan for the county. Because of the collaboration, a grant was awarded and websites are being built for each of the groups that form the communications infrastructure that the county needs to grow in various ways. As the final details are being completed now, all the new sites should be live in the near future. CaswellCares.com is another element of the digital infrastructure. It is a project of the Compassion Health Care that provides updated information on various programs and resources to all of the residents of Caswell. The community is invited to include their information here to share as well. The Caswell County Chamber of Commerce partners with its member organizations as well as the community at large to include the county and towns of Yanceyville and Milton in sharing commerce opportunities and ways to market and grow the local business community both digitally and via traditional marketing means. Working as a partner on various county committees, the Health Collaborative, collaboration with other area nonprofits, and The Caswell Messenger, the Chamber strives to connect the commerce of area while also encouraging a positive outlook on all things Caswell.

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT PROJECT PARTNERSHIPS:

CoSquare Shared Workspace Shared workspaces (coworking spaces) are workstations rented by remote employees, entrepreneurs, freelancers, gig workers, consultants, and anyone else who may not have a central office. With the new CoSquare space, our community is leading the way among rural areas in having the foresight to provide a facility like this for citizens. This project is the result of the county and the Town of Yanceyville working together with others in the community to make this a reality. The facility has already become the new home for several organizations as well as numerous individuals that are benefiting from the shared workspace. Center for Education and Agriculture Development (CEAD) The Center for Educational and Agricultural Development (CEAD) is the future home of Piedmont Community College’s (PCC) Agribusiness Technology Program and a center for economic development in Caswell County. The campus will be located in Pelham, NC and include agricultural education, economic development, and community resources. A food hub, an incubator farm, and food retail opportunities will build opportunity for Caswell County farmers and food entrepreneurs. Educational opportunities through PCC and Cooperative Extension will focus on food and farm initiatives, while community facilities will encourage community health and wellness. The combination of these elements are designed not only to promote Caswell’s farm community but also to drive economic development that attracts new investments, builds new jobs in Caswell, and expands the county’s community and economic opportunities. A groundbreaking will be held in April once a designer is selected to work on the 79-acre site that is expected to include a 15,000 square foot educational building including emergency shelter; a 6,000 square foot food hub; and a 10-12 acre incubator farm. THE CASWELL CHAPTER OF THE HEALTH COLLABORATIVE (CCTHC) PARTNERSHIPS:

A group of Caswell professionals from different sectors came together to address our county’s health challenges because the challenges faced in Caswell are too complex for any one organization to tackle alone. Together the shared goals, strategies and actionable steps that are sustainable and can positively influence the health behaviors and outcomes of Caswell residents. County & town employees, representatives from area churches, Piedmont Community College, the Caswell County Chamber of Commerce and small business owners among others representing our diverse community are involved. Community members are invited to be a part of this. Following are several of the key areas where CCTCH is working: Healthy Eating:

• Food Insecurity Response Coordinator: CCTHC, Caswell Parish, County Outreach Ministries, Locust Hill UMC, Shady Grove UMC, and the Caswell County Health Department, with support from Compassion Health Care and The Community Foundation have hired a Food Insecurity Response Coordinator that works with each of the food pantries and other local partners to expand sustainable access to food for community members experiencing food insecurity. • Grocery Delivery: Caswell Senior Services, Food Lion, PTRC’s Workforce Development Board, NextGen Youth Programs, and CCTHC are working together to create opportunities that provide valuable workforce training for Caswell residents ages 16-24 and a local grocery delivery option for those residents 55 and older who may be highrisk for COVID-19 or face transportation barriers. CASWELL | DISCOVER MAGAZINE | 17


THE CASWELL CHAPTER OF THE HEALTH COLLABORATIVE (CCTHC) PARTNERSHIPS (CONTINUED):

Healthy Spaces: • Youth Opportunities: Numerous youth serving agencies in Caswell, Rockingham, Alamance, and Danville have been a part of ongoing CCTHC conversations with local community members, faith-based organizations, and other civic groups to identify and promote ways the community can best support students, families, and educators during the upheaval created by the pandemic. In addition to working with local youth 12-19 to develop a Caswell Youth Council to guide the development and promotion of local youth programming, the group is working to connect interested partners with the support needed to develop tutoring programs and public WiFi access points. This work is done as part of the Health Department’s Community Health Improvement Plan. Active Living: • Trails: The Caswell Chamber of Commerce, Piedmont Community College, Caswell County Planning Department, the Town of Yanceyville, Piedmont Legacy Trails, PTRC, CCTHC, and a number of local community members have been working to maintain and promote the existing trails in Yanceyville. Leadership and Capacity Building • Measuring Impact: As the community embraces cross-sector collaborative efforts and building upon our existing assets, many Caswell County partners have chosen to measure long-term success and impact according to a Rural Wealth Building Community Capitals Framework. This considers indicators aligned with the following pertinent capitals: Natural, Cultural, Social, Human, Political, Financial, and Built. They are working with The Health Collaborative, the Danville Regional Foundation, and other partners in the Dan River Region to explore the possibility of creating a regional data repository and dashboard similar to spokanetrends.org. • Caswell Community Impact Projects: CCTHC and its partners, with the support of the Blue Cross NC Foundation, teamed up with Middle Border Forward to award ten Community Impact Awards of $1,000 each for community members to implement local projects that provided ways for community members to work together to improve the health and wellbeing of Caswell County. Visit MiddleBorderForward.org for details.

As you can see, despite the pandemic, the work to make Caswell County a great place to live, play and earn a living has continued forward with even more excitement building as key projects are now in full motion. It is a good time to be in Caswell and if we can continue our momentum and respect for each other as we continue to work together, move through the challenges and embrace upcoming opportunities, we will help Caswell continue to be a place where we will all be proud to have our children and grandchildren call home.

eterans Day on November 11, 2020 was a special day in Caswell County as more than 200 citizens gathered (in the rain) at the amphitheater in front of Yanceyville Municipal Building for the long-awaited dedication ceremony of the new Veterans Memorial. Committee co chair Fred Smith kicked things off with a short but sweet sentence, “We’re here to share the joy.” Smith thanked the many people who have donated to the fund to build the memorial that honors 70 veterans in various branches of the military. He pointed out that no tax dollars have been used. The committee is still taking donations that will pay for its upkeep. The project to build the memorial has been going on for over six years. The vision for a Caswell County Veterans Memorial was first suggested by Mayor Curtis Davis in December of 2013. Fundraising began in May of 2017 with the committee holding the first official meeting in March of 2016. In May of 2017 a goal of $175,000.00 was set. “We met that goal in the spring of 2020 and then raised the goal to $190,000: the extra money raised will be used for the upkeep of the Memorial for many years to come,” said Smith. NC Senator Phil Berger stressed that veterans gave up everything for the country and us. Many lost their lives in the process. “We salute them for fighting for our freedom away from home…far off.” He reminded everyone to hold leaders accountable and to teach their children what it means to be an American.

“Veterans know better than anyone else the price of freedom – President Ronald Reagan,” he said in closing. Larry Hall, Secretary of NC Department of Military and Veterans Affairs, spoke of veterans being part of a family who always hoped to return home to bring their values back to the community. He spoke briefly of the issues many veterans face today. “The biggest challenge is finding vets to help. Most don’t want a handout. Earned, not given.” The reading of all the names etched in the wall was offered by local ladies on the committee who did the research for all names. Naomi Totten offered a moving rendition of the National Anthem to kick off the ceremony and at the end, six marines from Marine Corps League Detachment 1209 out of Burlington fired a three round volley. Brandon Smith played taps. Pastor Claude Walker presented the closing prayer and Pastor Jimmy Davis offered the opening prayer. “This is now a special place for everyone to visit, sit awhile, and read all the 70 names, maybe say a prayer… and we all hope there will be no more names ever added,” said Smith. “Thanks to all who donated and had a part in this project; all residents of Caswell County should be proud.” The ceremony was live streamed by Don Tate and is available on his Facebook page. The sound system was operated by Rodney Smith and Chad Smith. ///
