We know events are in short supply because of the pandemic.  We hope things return to normal soon, and when they do, we’re looking forward to keeping you informed about all the great happenings offered in eastern North Carolina.  In the meantime, remember – if your church, nonprofit, or civic group has an event going on that you’d like included on our Community Calendar or in our on-air Community Bulletin Board announcements, click here to fill out the form!
