The What's On Blog
BASKETBALL FOR KIDS: MLK Center basketball registration for ages 4-6 is open until Dec. 1. The cost is $10 per child, and practices begin Dec. 12 with games starting on Jan. 9. Games and practices are held on Wednesday evenings. Register online or call (910) 341-0057 with questions.
FOSTER PARENTS NEEDED: The Arc of North Carolina’s Foster Care program provides children with a nurturing family setting in which to grow and hopefully achieve successful family reunification. Its therapeutic foster care program involves a child that has a higher level of care need, due to psychiatric, medical, and behavioral needs. Therapeutic foster parents require more training than family foster care and are required to have ongoing trainings related to therapeutic foster care to maintain their skills and demonstrate best practice. If interested, please contact Melissa Lawson at (910) 465-8123.
HURRICANE ASSISTANCE INFORMATION: The North Carolina Department of Commerce has a website of resources to help communities and businesses recover from hurricanes. To view this information, click here.
SURVEY TIME: The North Carolina Department of Transportation wants the public to help influence the future of transportation in North Carolina. Residents can participate in an online survey until Nov. 30 and leave comments on an interactive map about the future transportation challenges across the state and what should be the future focus of transportation in their regions. Examples include: safety, better connections to key destinations, better connections to jobs, better transit, and better bicycle and pedestrian accommodations. Links to both the survey and interactive map are available online.
TOURS OF THALIAN HALL: Every Monday one-hour guided tours are available from 2-3pm. Volunteers lead tours, so guided tour offerings can vary.

Group tours can be scheduled in advance for any day and time of the week by calling (910) 632-2282.
