Executive Director Message

March 15, 2021

We are finally starting to see some turn around in the CoVid situation. 2020 was the most unusual year in our lifetimes. The year started off great with our best turnouts for the two institute sessions we had since we went to two sessions. We had 85 in the first session and 65 in the second. Then CoVid came and everything changed forever. We had to cancel our usual January sessions due to circumstances at the time, but with every disappointment comes an opportunity.

We are going to be able to offer our first ever summertime session September 12-17, 2021. Please if at all possible take advantage of this unique opportunity. You will see the Edneyville area in a totally different light than it is in January. We will also do some classes we can’t do in the middle of the winter. I hope you are all staying safe . As always you can contact me at:  919-608-4809

Hope to see you in September,

Lt. John R. Byrd Sr., MS (Retired)
Executive Director
