N.C. Cooperative Extension Raises Funds, Boosts Morale Amidst Shut-Downs

— Written By and last updated by

While the COVID-19 pandemic has put a damper on many activities this summer, N.C. Cooperative Extension in Graham County is doing what we can to remind citizens that we’re still here and we still care! The Graham County “Street of Flags” is a project designed to raise program support funds for 4-H, boost morale amongst citizens and visitors, and foster an attitude of honor and respect for our veterans. Flags were sponsored by local citizens, erected on Memorial Day, and left on display through the 4th of July.

Flags will be displayed again during the month of November to commemorate the Veteran’s Day holiday. Anyone interested in sponsoring a flag should contact our office at (828) 479-7979. All proceeds go to support local 4-H programming.
