Salute The Boot

May 21st, 2018

The Havelock Appearance Commission is in the process of collecting old military boots (any branch of service) to be on display for the Memorial Day Weekend in memory of all of our men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Please help our committee collect these boots and meet our goal.  Reach out to military families in our community and ask them to donate to this memorial.  Donation boxes are at the following locations:

 

  • Walmart : 566 US Hwy 70, Havelock
  • Donna Comer’s State Farms: 288 US Hwy 70, Havelock
  • Baldrees Tire: 110 Catawba Road, Havelock
  • Nutrimax: 288 US Hwy 70, Havelock, Ste 102
  • Planet Fitness: 514 US Hwy 70, Havelock
  • TAGG: 235 West Main Street, Havelock
  • Whistle Stop (on base)
  • Chamber of Commerce: 201 Tourist Center Drive, Havelock

 

The boots are on display every year for Memorial Day Weekend (Thurs-Tues) at Havelock City Park. Our goal is to extend this display from City Park and continue down Roosevelt Blvd to the main entrance of CPMCAS.   The photo, below, is our display from 2016.  We are accepting pictures attached to boots, if a family wishes to do so, in memory of a loved one.   We are also asking anyone to share a written story about their boots, who they may have belonged to and where they may have served around the world.   The stories and photos will be laminated and attached to the boots for viewers to see and read as they walk around the park.

If you have a story/photo to share with a special pair of boots, please contact Marlene Lynch and she will arrange special pick up and get them laminated for this event.

Thank you in advance for any assistance in helping us with this project.  If you require any additional information, you can contact Marlene Lynch at 463-0113 or email her at marlenelynch@ec.rr.com  .  Thank you to all and God Bless.

Fats, Oils and Grease Program

May 16th, 2018

FATS, OILS & GREASE (FOG) PROGRAM

Put Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) in the trash where they belong. 

Sewer blockages can be a direct result of fats, oils, and grease (FOG) that you may be unknowingly discharging into the sewer system.  FOG comes from meats, lard, and cooking oil, butter, shortening margarine, baking goods, sauces and dairy products.  FOG can be found on cooking and eating utensils, pots, pans, and cooking surfaces that are usually washed into a sewer system through the kitchen sink. This allow grease to stick to the inside walls of the pipe, similar to the way fatty foods clog human arteries. The grease clings to the inside of drain pipes, that can eventually cause a complete blockage.

Each year, there are more than 15,000 sewer overflows in North Carolina. Many of these overflows are directly related to the improper disposal of fat, oil and grease in kitchen drains. These blockages are a serious problem that can lead to a hazardous sewage spill. Raw sewage could backup in your home and/or sewage overflow into yards and streets.

Your help is needed to stop these blockages from occurring by properly disposing of fats, oils, and grease.

Scrape or wipe fats, oils, and grease and other food residue from pots, pans, and utensils with a paper towel before washing or placing in dish washing machine.

FACTPOURING HOT WATER AND/OR DETERGENT DOWN THE DRAIN ONLY BREAKS UP GREASE TEMPORARILY. THE GREASE BLOCKAGE JUST RE-SOLIDIFIES FURTHER DOWN THE SYSTEM.

Keep your pipes running free by allowing cooking oil, grease and fat to cool and then pour them into a soup can for example, not down the drain. Trash the can, and not your pipes. The removal of a grease blockage and the cleanup associated with a sewage spill can be very expensive and could result in liability and/or property damages.

The Effects of FOG on the Environment

  • FOG accumulation in the sewer system causes blockages that result in untreated wastewater overflows.
  • The untreated wastewater flows into streets, storm drains, ponds, creeks, rivers, oceans and backs up into businesses as well as residential homes.
  • Sewer spills can: pollute ponds, creeks, and rivers; spread disease and most times requires expensive clean-up.

 

Thank you for your help in preventing sewer blockages and spills.

2018 EASTERN NORTH CAROLINA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ENGINEERING CAMP

Havelock, NC – The Eastern Carolina Aviation Heritage Foundation in partnership with the City of Havelock, will be offering a week-long, non-residential summer day camp for elementary school students (rising 4th, 5th and 6th graders) at the Havelock Tourist & Event Center on July 24th through 28th, 2017. The camp will be led by elementary school teachers from Craven and Carteret Counties with support from engineering faculty from NC State University and staff from Fleet Readiness Center East aboard MCAS Cherry Point.


The camp will provide students a fun and positive glimpse into various fields of engineering using hands-on, creative investigations and real-world building activities. Throughout the week, students will be divided into design teams led by local teachers. In their teams, students will be given the challenge to individually design and build various devices related to aviation and will learn engineering fundamentals by exploring various experiments.
On the final day of camp, students will demonstrate their work in a public forum that incorporates many of the concepts from the camp’s weekly activities.

Families and the community are invited to attend this final competition on Friday morning. The camp is from 8:30am – 12:00noon Monday through Friday and a snack is provided. No lunch is provided.
