The Currituck Chamber of Commerce recently held a Business After Hours with Quality Homes of Currituck and the Currituck Arts Council.

AESOP’S FABLES ONE WINTER a Farmer found a Snake stiff and frozen with cold. He had compassion on it, and taking it up, placed it in his bosom. The Snake was quickly revived by the warmth, and resuming its natural instincts, bit its benefactor, inflicting on him a mortal wound. “Oh,” cried the Farmer with his last breath, “I am rightly served for pitying a scoundrel.” The greatest kindness will not bind the ungrateful.

BOX 27, Maple, NC 27956 Encore Theatre in our Community By Lamar Phillips In times such as these, the world needs the arts more than ever. We especially need our community live theaters! Not only does it provide affordable entertainment for the area, it provides a creative outlet for young and old alike. Children use the basic tenets of theatre and I would argue more importantly; they learn self confidence, discipline, determination and teamwork. Adults have the opportunity to pretend and become someone else—in essence have time to play! Life-long friendships are formed between participants and the audience. Encore Theatre Company is pleased to have served this role for 24 years! Within these plays are many truths – they house the people we wish to be and the ones we hope never to be and thus they provide guidance and direction even as they entertain us. As we escape, we learn, we process through our own emotions and come out stronger as the house lights return to their original brightness. So too, the actors and crew learn so much from the process and each other. Live theatre provides all those involved with a needed and necessary outlet. Twenty four years in existence is a testament to community spirit and commitment to the arts. With your support and help, here’s to 25 more!
