JANUARY 2021
News from NC Cooperative Extension, Currituck
Welcome to 2021!

Well, we made it to the other side of 2020! There's no magic to turning the page on last year but there is quite a bit of hope for the year ahead. We, at NC Cooperative Extension, Currituck County Center look forward to incorporating the lessons we've learned from last year into creating high quality educational content that meets your needs in 2021.

We look forward to being able to get back together face to face and learn with one another. Some of these opportunities are beginning now in keeping with gathering restrictions and masking and distancing requirements. We recognize that limiting class sizes means we can't reach all the citizens we would like to reach. We also recognize that not everyone is comfortable meeting face to face. With those facts in mind, we are committed to continuing to offer distance education opportunities as we have over the past year.

The best way to stay up to date on opportunities that we'll be rolling out in 2021 is to keep an eye on our website and thoroughly explore this monthly newsletter. You can also follow @CurrituckCES on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for class announcements. Many "freebie" classes our also available if you subscribe to @CurrituckCES on YouWe look forward to interacting with you in 2021!
