Welcome to Wilson County Extension & Community Association's first web page!! Some of you may remember the "Home Demonstration Clubs" of the past. Well, here we are in 2012 and we are reaching out to the cyber world!! You will have an opportunity to visit our websites and find out what's happening in our Wilson County ECA. Did you know that we give out a $1,000.00 scholarship each year to a deserving Wilson County senior for their college education? Did you know that we are a part of an organization that is 100 years old? http://go.ncsu.edu/nceca Did you know that we have educational workshops, tours and classes of all kinds? Do you want to travel with us to fun places such as the NC State Fair? Do you want to learn about ways to improve your local community? Do you want to learn about topics such as Parenting, Family Finances, Food Safety and Nutrition, Housing economics and all things "FAMILY". By participating in our local Wilson County ECA, you can expand your educational opportunities through research-based information. We would love to have you as a member! Memberships are renewed annually for $10.00. Email us or give us a call at 252-237-0112 so that we can start building friendships and communities together.
Oh, by-the-way: My name is Candace Murray and The Wilson and Community Extension Association is affiliated with NC Cooperative Extension which is part of North Carolina State University. I am an Extension Agent in Family & Consumer Sciences and work as an ECA liaison to help bring research-based educational information to Wilson County. You will love all the available resources that we have. This is a collaboration between Federal, Local and State agencies. Remember: It is easy to surf the web; but, it is wiser to make sure you have research-based accurate information!
And, of course, everyone is invited to join!
