A new vision for 2020
Exciting changes are coming to our
Pine Knoll Shores 2020 Kayak for the
Warriors (K4TW) events. While events
in the past have been very successful, it is
time for a refresh. Here’s the scoop.
The Warrior Gala will be held this
year on Friday, May 1, at the Crystal
Coast Country Club (CCCC). Join us for
cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, butfet dinner, silent and live auctions, and dancing
to live music provided by party band Bounce.
Watch for tickets to go on sale soon as they will be limited in number and will
go fast. We are asking that folks register and pay their $60 per person fee online,
although forms will be available at town hall. The cutoff for registering is April
15 as we must submit a head count to CCCC for their planning purposes. Don’t
miss this great kickoff event.
We will hold our first annual Kayak for the Warriors Golf Tournament on
Friday, May 29, also at the Crystal Coast Country Club. This event takes the
place of our beach runs. Registration is $75 and includes 18 holes with cart,
barbecue lunch, prizes for first and second place, mulligans, contests for longest
tee and closest to the pin, a putting game and other surprises. The shotgun start
will begin at 8:30 a.m.
We are requesting that individuals and teams sign up online by May 15.
Registration forms will also be available at town hall and in the pro shop at the
Our signature event, the Kayak/Paddleboard Race, wiU be held on Saturday,
June 6. There will be no changes to this event. Again, please register online as it
helps us in getting the right size t-shirt to everyone as well as bibs. Registration
is $50 per paddler. This has always proven to be a fun outing for everyone, and
there will be a barbecue lunch as always.
Our website (k4tw.org) is currently being updated and soon will have all the
information and links for registering that you will need. If you have questions,
please contact me at 202-808-2998 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
League of Women Voters
To Celebrate Women’s History Month
March 19 reception celebrates
100th anniversary of women’s right to vote
This year marks the 100th anniversary of women attaining the right to vote.
Across the nation, plans are in the works to celebrate the passing of the 19th
Amendment, which gave them that right. Events and activities are being planned
throughout the year in order to educate the public about the suffrage movement
that ended with the passage of the 19th Amendment on August 18,1920. The
League of Women Voters of Carteret County (LWVCC) is collaborating with
the Carteret County Historical Society and planning a reception at the History
Museum of Carteret County for Women’s History Month in March.
This reception will feature exhibits showcasing key suffragettes, including
images of notable women here in Carteret County. The exhibits will also feature
period clothing worn by women during this era and creative work submitted by
students in Carteret County that highlight a woman in the past or present who
has inspired them through art, music, poetry, drawing and essays. Awards to the
top prize winners will be announced during the reception.
The informal reception will be held on Thursday, March 19, from 5:30 to
7:30 p.m. at the History Museum of Carteret County, 1008 Arendell Street in
Morehead City. Local chefs from Carteret County will be on hand to prepare
their specialty appetizers, and there will be a silent auction to benefit the league’s
educational activities, which include Vote411.org, a one-stop online website for
election-related information that features candidate profiles for every race in
