Shop Local and Make A Difference T

his month we thought we needed a little magic and what better way to spread Christmas Magic than a gigantic Santa Claus! If you somehow have missed him, Santa can be found at the Christmas tree stand in Brunswick Forest, and we encourge you to stop by as the trees all looked like the kind that Santa himself would recommend.


s a matter of fact, we would like to recommend you pay special attention to all of lur community’s small businesses this year. It is important all the time, but with the challenges we’ve all faced this year, our local businesses need your support now more than ever. Amazon and Lowes and Walmart will all be ok, but your neighborhood hardware store or the Christmas tree guy down the street or the little mom and pop gift shop don’t have the resources that those huge corporations have. Your support may be the difference between surviving this year and not.


esides, buying local offers you the opportunity to give gifts that mean a little something more, that have a unique or local flair. And speaking of unique and local flair, don’t forget to check out the LCAC Holiday Market that has gone online this year. It’s easier than ever to support your local artist community. Read all about it on page 4. Merry Christmas and thank you for your support!

CURRENTS Holiday Market Moves Online This Year The Leland Cultural Arts Center’s Annual Sale To Benefit Local Artisans Goes Virtual STORY BY JEFFREY STITES


he Leland Cultural Arts Center has found a way to keep the tradition of its Holiday Market alive in the Time of COVID. The event will go online this year, opening up an opportunity for shoppers from anywhere with an internet connection to participate and support local artisans. We spoke to Kristi Armstrong, Arts Administrative Assistant about how this will all shake out. What did the Holiday Market look like in years past? In years past, we enjoyed hosting more than 40 art vendors during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. Hundreds of shoppers have come through our doors to shop for unique gifts from a variety of art mediums. From potters to painters to specialty artists, there is always a little something for everyone.

How will this year’s market work? Where can we find it? What day/times? On Dec. 5 from 9 am – 3 pm, we will be featuring a different local artist and their work every 30 minutes on the LCAC social media accounts.  You will be able to click

ists might take commissions, but the holiday timeline can be very tight. Being online when the artist spotlights are posted means you’ll be one of the first to see what they have to offer!   Where are the artists coming from? They are local! We love being able to highlight all the wonderful artists we have right here in our area.    What sort of items will the Market feature? Price points? We have pottery, baskets, jewelry, paintings and everything in between! We will also have some artists featuring great holiday items.

CURRENTS spring, we were met with the same challenges for our Spring Art Market. While the first suggestion was to cancel the market, we just couldn’t accept that as a final answer. So we brainstormed the best way to serve our amazing artist community. We decided if we couldn’t bring the artists and shoppers to the market, we were going to bring the market and artists to the shoppers! After a lot of discussion about where we thought we’d be this winter, hosting another online market for the holidays just felt like the best option. Do you see any silver linings to offering the market online? You don’t have to be in the area to attend! If you have internet access and a social media account (Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter) you can follow along from anywhere. Also, shoppers can scroll through all the posts once they are live, so you can revisit the event even after it’s over.

Are you learning anything in doing the market virtually that may help you going forward after things return to a more normal state? We’ve learned a lot about the importance of social media in reaching wider audiences! Once things are a little more normal, we plan to continue creating diverse content that not only informs the public, but also supports local artists and allows us to interact with our online community. Where do the proceeds go? To the artist? Does LCAC get a cut? All proceeds go directly to the artists. Supporting our local creative community is always important to us. This year, with COVID, we feel it is more important than ever to shop small and shop local!

Leland In Lights!

This Year’s Display Promises Extra Magic STORY BY JEFFREY STITES


he fine folks running Leland’s Recreation Department have been working hard to keep programs going through some difficult circumstances this year, and they are finishing the year off in most magical manner. The Leland In Lights Holiday Display lights up each night this month for you and your loved ones to explore. We spoke to the Recreation department staff about how this year’s display will be extra special. How long has the town been doing Leland In Lights? Leland in Lights started in 2018 and has continued to grow each year, with this year being the largest and brightest yet.

What can visitors expect from this year’s display? Our hope with Leland in Lights is to bring a little holiday magic and joy to people of all ages. And for many, this is a unique way to create lasting memories (a couple actually got engaged in the candy cane forest dis-

play last year!). We invite everyone to take a stroll through the candy cane forest, take a moment under the twinkling lights, or stop to hear the trees “sing” holiday songs. And because it is free, people are welcome to return as many times as they’d like during the event. I understand you’ve added to it for this year, can you talk about that? In addition to the dozens of displays from last year, the event will be expanded this year to feature even more animated displays provided by a grant through the Leland Tourism Development Authority. 

How will this be different from previous years due to COVID? To ensure we keep our community safe during the holidays, the annual Tree Lighting and Santa’s Workshop will not take place this year. We encourage those attending to wear a mask and ask all that visit the lights to be respectful of others and maintain a six-foot distance while viewing the displays. What are the hours? The lights will turn on at dusk every night starting November 30 and continuing until January 10.

A Life Well Lived



ince he was 12, Paul Phillips has worked continuously, serving in the Navy during World War II, Korea and the beginning of Vietnam, and spending decades working for the Department of Defense and then at Cameron Art Museum. “I went a lot of places and I’ve done a lot of things, but at 93 I’ve forgotten a few things,” he added with a laugh. Paul started working at age 12, delivering groceries from a local store on his bike. He later worked in the warehouse on the nearby Laurinburg Army Air Base, before joining the Navy at age 17, with his father’s signature. It was 1945, four months before World War II ended, and Paul was assigned to the USS North Carolina. “I didn’t see any combat [in World

War II],” he said. “I went to Panama through the canal, to the Pacific, and then we turned around and came back. “There was no TV on the ship,” Paul said. “It was hot; there was no air conditioning, just fans. Destroyers would get so hot you couldn’t sleep in your bunk, so you’d take your mattress off and up to the main deck and sleep there, on a steel ship in the sun in the south Pacific.” After ten years in the Navy, Paul trained to be a diver. “I went through underwater swimming school in 1955,” Paul said. “When the current was real bad, you couldn’t use scuba gear. They’d put you in a heavy suit and you’d do what you needed to do under the ship.” That was prior to the Navy Seals starting, added his wife, Evonne. For the rest of his 21-year military career, Paul was an underwater swimmer and assisted with demolition and bomb disposal. “We learned American ammunition, foreign ammunition,” Paul said. “They put you in a unit, and if they found an unexploded ordinance, they’d send the units out to look at it.” Though he spent some time working on

a demolition range in Fort Campbell, Kentucky, before long Paul was once again on a ship, sailing through the Indian Ocean and seeing Ethiopia, Pakistan, and other countries along the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. “We were supposed to spend money in those countries,” he said, adding that the sailors were seen as goodwill ambassadors by spending money in those countries when they were on leave.

“We didn’t have money to mess around on the Riviera, places like that,” Paul said. “We did get to go into town: Cannes, Nice. I didn’t carry a camera with me, but I wish that I had. We had a telegraph on the ship, but no phones,” Paul said. “If we went into dock and they had a phone booth, we could call, IF they had a phone booth. Most of the countries I went to didn’t have anything.”

comm “We didn’t get to hear from him a lot; that was the hard part,” Evonne said. “Two of my most precious pieces of mail are from Italy, I think; he had found two cards with dogs that squeaked.” He and Evonne had married in 1958. Paul was on the USS Independence stationed out of Portsmouth, and Evonne was living in Norfolk, Virginia. While Paul’s mother was visiting Evonne in Norfolk, the two women had a chance to board a Navy ship with Paul for a family day, and Navy crews landed a plane on the deck so the family members present could watch. “Back then, ladies did not wear pants,” Evonne said. “In order to go on the ship, we had to buy [Paul’s mother] a pair of pants. And it’s a good thing she did, because she and I had to go up these little steps; they were so narrow!” Paul’s job was to help with the plane landing on the ship, assisting with the equipment on deck that helps grab a plane as it lands on the deck and hold it on the ship. “I’ll never forget worrying about him as the plane landed,” Evonne said. “That was really a beautiful, exciting time for he and I with his mother.” Paul was already planning to retire from the Navy when the Vietnam War started. At that point, he was a Chief Petty Officer in the Navy, he said, and the Army offered him a job as a Warrant Officer if he would go into the Army, deploy to Vietnam and run a river boat. But Paul decided to stick with his plans of retirement and turned down the offer.

“He came home that day and said he didn’t want to go, that he had been away from his boys and he wanted to stay home with them and with me,” Evonne said. “He’s been the best father two boys could ever ask for,” she added. “He never said a harsh word to them, never raised a hand to them. He’d always say, ‘I can’t punish them Evonne. I might be gone.’ He was their buddy, and I al-

ways had to be the one to make them mind.” After retiring from the Navy, Paul worked for the police department in Charleston, then for a railroad company in Rockingham, before accepting a job working for Military Ocean Terminal Sunny Point outside of Southport. Paul worked there from 1968 to 1988. “The biggest change was getting out of the Navy, coming in to civilian

life,” Paul said. “In the Navy, you get up every day and have a plan for exactly what’s going to happen that day, that week. You had to do exactly what the schedule said. You get out of the Navy and you don’t have a plan.” After working for 20 years at MOTSU, Paul started a new job, providing security for Cameron Art Museum in Wilmington. He got up every morning at 5:30 so he could be at work at 7:15. Paul was dedicated to his job at the art museum, Evonne said, adding, “He did it for 20 years, almost 20 years, when he got sick. The only reason he had to stop was because he had mini-strokes, and it just wasn’t safe for him to drive, or he’d have gone.” Each year, visiting artists would come to the museum to teach classes. One of the visiting artists had a special rapport with Paul. “She loved him, and we thought the world of her,” Evonne said of the artist. “When she started to leave, she said, ‘Mr. Paul, I’m coming back next year in January and I am going to paint your portrait.’ “Mr. Paul said ‘Ok,’ never thinking she meant it. But sure enough, she came back and she was going to paint his portrait. She saw something in his face that she seldom saw in anyone’s face.” Cameron Art Museum purchased the painting done of Paul, and when

munity a party was held at the museum for his 90th birthday, museum officials presented Paul with a giclee print of the painting. “His portrait is in the museum on the wall. A lot of famous artists have worked at the museum; his portrait is on the wall for display,” Evonne said. In 2020, Paul turned 93, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. To thank Paul for his service to his community and celebrate his birthday, while still maintaining safety precautions for COVID-19, a parade was organized by Leland Mayor Brenda Bozeman and officials with the Town of Leland, Gerald Decker and members of Leland VFW Post 12196, and officials with the Cameron Art Museum, the Red Cross, and the USS Battleship. Dozens of first responders, veterans, and community officials joined Paul’s friends and family, driving by his home with balloons, banners, and birthday wishes, and Mayor Bozeman issued an official proclamation in his honor. With a diagnosis of congestive heart failure, Paul had been in and out of the hospital a number of times. He is now a patient of Lower Cape Fear LifeCare. “His doctor told him, ‘For 20 years,

we’ve been patching you up and getting you back to the museum. Now it’s time to go home and rest. I’m going to call hospice right now and you won’t have to go in the hospital again; you can rest at home,’” said Evonne. “And they’ve been coming here since. It’s been wonderful. He’d been in the hospital [near the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic] and we couldn’t be with him; we’ve been there for each other for 62 years and I wasn’t going to let that happen again. That’s not what it’s about, coming home to die; it’s about coming home to be cared for in your house so you can be home.” Lower Cape Fear LifeCare is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing access to the highest quality LifeCare, education, and supportive services to our patients, their families, and the communities we serve.

The Art of Silversmithing Brunswick Community College’s Lord St. Campus Features Expert Instructors



his year, Brunswick Community College Southport Center, located on Lord Street, proudly celebrates five years in operation. This campus is a little gem in Southport offering studio-based arts classes from beginner to advanced adult education, and it is bursting with more opportunities and class offerings to get your creativity going. January 2021 Spring class registration is in full swing offering a wide variety of arts classes including writing, pottery, woodturning, glass, painting, music, and more with talented and diverse instructors to fit your needs. The Jewelry program at the campus includes experienced and multi-level instructors, offering beginning to advanced methods in silversmithing. Between all of them, their experience in jewelry making, designing, and teaching are impressive.

Multi-media artist and local musician Spence Hayden has been teaching at the Southport Center for four and a half years. Born in Virginia and raised in Iowa, in addition to silversmith jewelry classes he teaches pottery and woodturning. His experience in met-

alsmithing and jewelry making is extensive starting in college and including his custom jewelry making and repair business, Hayden Studios. “I love all jewelry making processes with lost wax casting being my favorite. But I also love bezel making and wire cage construction,”

said Hayden. Although beginning with metal can seem daunting, Hayden’s easy personality makes it a fun and engaging craft form to learn. “We will start off with learning our tools and equipment, quickly moving on to Cold Forging copper wire and sheet, to better understand the properties of metals. This will also include Cold Soldering, sawing and texturing of sheet copper, bending and forming copper wire into non soldered rings, bracelets, links and necklaces. Finally, silver soldering our copper projects. We start off with copper in order to save money on rudimentary learning because mistakes can get expensive. Once confident enough, we will delve into silver. From here, we will learn basic silver soldering techniques, bezel making, ring making, stone setting, layering, even wax carving, mold making, centrifugal casting

and PMC clay toward the end of the semester.” Hayden teaches Beginning Jewelry/Silver at the Southport campus. A list of supplies and tools will be available before the first class and will

art beat be handed out at the first class. Aleah DeMore Smith, Silversmith and owner of Moonlit Metals, has been making and selling her gorgeous jewelry for the past 10 years. Her work is primarily comprised of silver and semi-precious, ethically-sourced stones. “My jewelry is inspired by the natural world, celestial bodies and the sea, and is intended to empower those who wear it. I focus on craftsmanship as well as sustainability in my personal home studio,” she said. She has been a Silversmith Instructor at Southport center since 2019. “I was born in Raleigh and started working with metal in 2010 at Cape Fear Community College. I eventually went to East Carolina University where I got my BFA with a concentration in Metal Design in 2018. I now live in Wilmington where I sell my work locally at pop-up markets when I am not working my day job as the Assistant Innkeeper at the Beacon House Inn Bed and Breakfast,” she said. “I enjoy working with students from my surrounding community. The most rewarding part of teaching, what I love, is seeing my students find joy and pride in creating their own works of art. In my class we predominantly focus on enameling and stone-setting work.” DeMore-Smith will be offering Intermediate Jewelry making. Although Susan Machamer is new to the Southport Center, she is not new to teaching or jewelry making. An award-winning artist, she is also featured in three design books showcasing her abilities. She has been an instructor at Syracuse University in its Metalsmithing and Jewelry program and also at Cazenovia College’s Studio Art program. Susan is a professional Metalsmith, Designer, Graduate Gemologist, and Jewelry Instructor, and has been involved in the jewelry industry, owning several businesses including most recently Cazenovia Jewelry Inc. “I have been mystified by jewelry and body adornment for as long as I can remember. I collected antique jewelry as a young child and remember being in awe of the magical pieces in my mother’s jewelry box. Occasional trips to an intriguing local antique shop opened the door to a love of creating one of a kind jewelry. The selection of materials and techniques for my work have a strong connection to my adoration of natural forms. I get excited about the contrast of textures on metal surfaces.

My work is primarily fabricated in silver and/or gold. I often embellish my pieces with unusual gemstones, for their amazing beauty and color.” Machamer will be teaching Advanced Jewelry making,

PMC clay, and glass jewelry making. For more information and to register for classes, check out the BCC website https://www.brunswickcc.edu/contact/locations-maps-directions/south-

Cleaning Our Waterways Fishermen Have Opportunity to Earn Some Cash And Help The Environment STORY CONTRIBUTED


ocal fisherfolk looking to help clean up our local waters may want to check out an opportunity coming up to work with the North Carolina Coastal Federation and North Carolina Marine Patrol in the new year. During the “no potting” period, boats and crews will remove debris from local waters, and be compensated for the effort. Every year, crab pots and other fishing gear are lost in our sounds, creating hazards for boats and marine life. The North Carolina Coastal Federation is seeking applications to help clean up this debris through the Lost Fishing Gear Recovery Project. The Lost Fishing Gear Recovery Project is part of a statewide marine debris removal effort led by the federation. This project is open to commercial watermen and women in North Carolina. Selected participants will help the

federation and N.C. Marine Patrol remove lost fishing gear from coastal waters during the “no-potting” period. In January 2019, commercial watermen and women, in partnership with Marine Patrol officers, removed 3,112 pots from select areas in Districts 1, 2, and 3.

Upcoming Art Events Learn All About Batik And Enter A Show

JANUARY MEETING The Art League of Leland (ALL) invites artists and art enthusiasts to its Thursday, Jan. 7, 2021, virtual meeting with artist Mary Zlotnick as its featured guest speaker. Zlotnick will discuss batik, an Indonesian art form that dates back 2,000 years. The meeting, which is free and open to the public, will take place from 4-6 pm. To register to attend, email artleagueofleland@gmail.com by Dec. 30. Details about how to join the Zoom meeting will be emailed to registered attendees in early January. If conditions surrounding the pandemic allow for an in-person meeting at the Leland Cultural Arts Center, ALL will announce meeting updates on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and www.artleagueofleland.org.

Featured speaker Mary Zlotnick combines batik techniques to create her unique style of batik paintings. After working as a clay artist and teaching classes on the wheel, she tried batik, which uses fabric and melted wax applied with brushes. After the wax is applied, the cloth is immersed into dye; only the unwaxed areas and cracks in the wax accept dye. More recently, Zlotnick began creating silk paintings also using a resist technique.   Painter James Horton is in the Member Spotlight and will share his award-winning artwork in a short presentation. Painting in a variety of media including oil, acrylic, gouache, graphite and ink, Horton enjoys capturing physical scenes in his artwork whether he is painting en plein air or in his studio.  


Beginning January 15, 2021, the Art League of Leland (ALL) will accept submissions for “It’s ALL Art,” the organization’s annual art exhibition and sale to be held on May 1 and 2, 2021, at the Brunswick Forest Fitness and Wellness Center in Leland, in accordance with NC guidelines in effect at that time. The deadline to register is March 5, 2021.   ALL welcomes applications from 2-D and 3-D artists in various disciplines throughout the Lower Cape Fear area. The cost to enter is $25 for Art League of Leland members and $40 for nonmembers. Three pieces of artwork will be selected by exhibition visitors for People’s Choice Awards.   Visit ALL’s website www.artleagueofleland.org for submission guidelines and a PDF of the registration forms to print and complete. Considerations for acceptance include but are not limited to the quality of the artwork and a balance of media represented in the exhibition. Accepted artists will be responsible for delivering their artwork on April 30, 2021. If you have any questions, please email itsALLart2020@ gmail.com.

Finding The Right Fitness Options

Keeping In Shape And Staying COVID Safe STORY BY BRIAN TULLY, MS


nfortunately, the COVID-19 timeline seems to be filled with considerable precautions ahead of us. I hate to say it, but I don’t even see us being halfway through this thing yet. So, it is best to start making plans for keeping some level of health and wellness in your life while keeping the proper precautions in place. For some of you this may mean continuing to wear a mask, wash your hands and clean the exercise equipment before and after use at your local gym. That is assuming that the local gym is still open. But for others this is not the path, you need to be more cautious for the sake of friends, family members, other loved ones, and your own personal health. Exercise and fitness have tremendous benefits to our overall well-being. It really should not be neglected, even during events like we are currently experiencing. In fact, it is more important than ever. It helps counteract depression, create an opportunity for social interaction, boost immunity, and improve overall health. If you are one of those that need or

want to be more cautious as the COVID numbers continue to rise, but still continue to exercise, there are options available to safely train without returning to the traditional gym setting. Below you will find several ideas to help you stay healthy and fit during this pandemic. Pay attention to some important factors like your own level of exercise experience and your level of self-motivation. If your level of workout experience is low, you will want more interaction with the trainer to ensure you are performing the exercises correctly and that they are the right ones for you. This will help you work around any physical limitations you may have, decrease your risk of injury, and make sure you get the most from the workout. Stream workouts on demand or on DVDs – pre-recorded, no accountability or interaction, guided workouts; can offer a lot of variety, can be a wide range of price points from free to over $100 based on the program and level of complexity Workout Program from a Magazine or Social Media Account – countless number of fitness magazines with monthly workouts or social media fitness accounts that provide daily workouts; you should already have a pretty good idea of how-to workout and no physical issues or limitations; looking for some variety; no accountability or

interaction; up to you to decide if it is the workout right for you

Join an Online Challenge – weekly workouts sent to you to perform on your own; usually lasts for a set period of time (28 days, 6 weeks, etc.); may have a private social media group of others going through the challenge; low level of interaction with trainer; usually a lower price point Home Equipment with Guided Workouts – recorded and live workout sessions; a good example of this would be the Peleton (spin bike with large video screen attached that is connected to the internet for live or recorded instructor-led classes); can be expensive; classes can be very large leading to little to no interaction with instructor or other class members; typically one primary source of exercise, in this case the spin bike; it can track your progress for some form of motivation, but no one is holding you accountable Virtual Group Workouts – these can be live video workouts on a Zoom Conference Call, Facebook Live, or other online video medium; these groups can be very large; you follow along live online or perform the recorded version of the workout on your own time; size of group can vary greatly; usually low cost; no accountability unless you are doing it with friends that hold you accountable; Virtual Small Group Workouts – same as a virtual group workout (above) but the number of attendees is limited to a small enough group that the trainer can not only lead the workout, but instruct, correct, and interact with individual at-

tendees; higher level of interaction and accountability at a lower price point than the below options; since everyone in virtual it provides a safe way to interact in a group One-on-One Virtual Training – basically the same as in person private personal training; you and your trainer interact via a live video feed; you and your trainer are virtually both in the same room; high level of accountability, interaction, detailed instruction and technique guidance; workout is designed specific to each individual’s goals and needs; at the higher end from a price perspective due to the level of customization and interaction Hybrid Training- mix of in-person instruction and virtual training- allows you to only be in-person for program changes and assessments (as needed) while still doing the majority of your workouts in a one-on-one virtual manner or following the custom designed program on your own; allows for the detailed instruction and accountability but still puts some of the ownership on you when performing workouts in between sessions Private In-Person One-On-One Training Studio – very similar to the One-On-One Virtual Training mentioned above, except it is all done in person; the same level of precautions would most likely be in place as regular gym (face mask, equipment cleaning, hand disinfecting, etc.), but it would be just you and the trainer in the space; easier to maintain safe distance and insure that you are not sharing equip-

Healthy Holidays

Cooperative Extensive Programs Help Keep You In Shape This Festive Season STORY CONTRIBUTED


ll are invited to join the 14th annual Eat Smart, Move More, Maintain… Don’t Gain! Holiday Challenge. Rather than focusing on trying to lose weight, this FREE seven-week challenge provides strategies and resources to maintain weight throughout the holiday season. Many Americans gain between one and five pounds each year between Thanksgiving and the New Year. While this might not sound like much, weight gained during the holidays accounts for 51 percent of people’s weight gain for the whole year. The problem is most people never manage to lose those extra pounds and year after year it adds up. North Carolina State University and NC Cooperative Extension are offering some help to prevent this annual problem. The entire program is virtual and can be accessed on a computer, tablet, or cell phone. The Holiday Challenge started in November and runs through Dec. 31. For details on the Holiday Challenge registration go to: https://esmmweighless.com/ holidaychallenge/ NEW this year, the Brunswick County Center of NC Cooperative Extension is offering local components to this statewide program. In addition to the online program through email, there will be weekly Holiday Challenge Lunch-and-Learn sessions with local speakers and a chance to win prizes. Virtual Lunch-and-Learn sessions will be held each Tuesday at noon by Zoom. The remaining local sessions are: Dec. 8 - Reading the Nutrition Facts Label Dec. 15 - The Importance of Exercise Dec. 22 - Tips to Reduce Holiday Stress Dec. 29 - Eating for Better Health To access to these special Brunswick County sessions, sign up through the Brunswick County Center of the NC Cooperative Extension on the Brunswick County Center’s webpage, Facebook page, or contact Meghan Lassiter at Brunswick County Center of NC Cooperative Extension. In addition, the program features weekly newsletters, healthy holiday recipes, quick daily tips, and weekly challenges. These will all be delivered to your email inbox. Downloadable tools, such as weight logs, food, and activity journals are also offered. Support is also available through social

media and participants can share through a private Facebook Community. There will be recipes and tips on Pinterest and Holiday Challenge tips and updates on Twitter and Instagram. The entire program is free of charge. Participate as little or as much as you would like. Evaluations from past years have shown that the more ways people participate, the more likely they are to maintain or lose weight. For more information, contact: Meghan Lassiter, meghan_lassiter@ncsu.edu, 910253-2610 or visit Brunswick.ces.ncsu.edu The Holiday Challenge is provided by Eat Smart, Move More, Weigh Less and Eat Smart, Move More, Prevent Diabetes. Both programs are developed and managed by NC State University and the NC Division of Public Health. ABOUT N.C. COOPERATIVE EXTENSION N.C.

times we haven’t clapped for, we haven’t cheered for, we haven’t loved… this is the night where we get to bring them together and say, ‘you matter, we love you and we are throwing this awesome party because that’s how special you are.’ This is why we knew we couldn’t cancel Night to Shine 2021.
