When the New Hanover County Retired and Senior Volunteers wanted to honor firefighters for 9/11, they were told the crew at the New Murrayville Station wanted a Christmas tree and decorations to make the holidays a little brighter. So Friday the group gave firefighters their Christmas wish, thanking them for their service and courage.

“It’s great to have the community support coming out here, especially on this day,” said New Hanover County firefighter Jeremy King. “A lot of us try to keep the community aware of 9/11 so nobody ever forgets the 343 that died.”

Retired and Senior Volunteer Bunnie Brush said, “When we decided to have this campaign, we didn’t realize there was only one store in town that was selling Christmas ornaments.”

The volunteers are looking for donations of Christmas decorations and gift cards for all the fire stations in New Hanover County, Wilmington, Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach and Kure Beach.

You can drop off donations at the New Hanover County Senior Center, the County Government Complex or the senior center in Carolina Beach.

You can also call 798-6407, and volunteers will make arrangements to pick them up.

Titan America is a step closer to building a cement plant in Castle Hayne. The Department of Environmental and Natural Resources has signed off on a draft air quality permit.

The permit comes after an 18-month technical review of the proposed facility, to make sure it complies with state air quality regulations and standards.

A big concern among folks opposed to the plant is the potential for air pollution. The next step in the process is to hold public hearings to discuss the draft air permit.

There will be two hearings on Tuesday, October 20th from 2:00 to 5:00 and then from 6:30 to 9:00 at Cape Fear Community College’s North Campus.

You will need a parking pass, and you can click here to view the draft air quality permit.
