JULY 2020
News from NC Cooperative Extension, Currituck
Another New Initiative...

North Carolina remains in Phase 2 of the governor's orders in response to COVID-19. This means limiting social interaction, wearing masks when appropriate, and regularly washing or sanitizing our hands. We know that many find this frustrating. We want to be able to connect with our loved ones around creative activities.

Well, North Carolina Cooperative Extension in Currituck County has the remedy for you! Join us for Mission: Connection. This four-week program will provide a number of creative experiences to help you safely connect with family, friends, and your community.

Register by July 19, 2020, to receive your weekly mission supplies delivered to your doorstep (literally) and email inbox. If you choose to accept them, your missions will include adventures in cooking, community exploration, nature, and more.

The cost of this exciting series is only $40 and will include mission instructions, tools to enhance your mission, and some unique giveaways. That's less than the price of a single date and you'll get instructions and supplies for four of them! Registration is easy, simply complete online registration at: https://missionconnectioncurrituck.eventbrite.com  and submit your payment online.
