March at the Senior Centers 

Currituck Senior's ExercisingThe Currituck County Senior Centers; Barco, Knotts Island and Powell's Point are places designed to give Senior Adults in Currituck the opportunity to meet other seniors, receive services geared towards seniors and participate in activities that will affirm their dignity and self-worth.

With that in mind each month the staff produces a newsletter to inform citizens of available programs for that month. Please take the time to read what the Senior Centers are doing this month. 

When we all work together the senior centers are an "enjoyable and a happy place" for EVERYONE!

Light_Bulb_clip_art_medium.gifTammy's "Did You Know"...  

North Carolina can boast of many accomplishments and firsts. The Wright Brothers made the first successful flight in 1903.

Babe Ruth hit his first home run in Fayetteville in 1914.

Virginia Dare, first English child, was born in Roanoke in 1587.

But the most mouth watering first is probably everyone's favorite doughnut: Krispy Kreme was founded in Winston-Salem. Now that's a sweet accomplishment.
