Community joins together to restore school

Saturday, November 23rd, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Students traded books and pencils for paintbrushes at college park elementary school this weekend. Volunteers, staff, and even kids joined together for Painting at the Park, an event dedicated to restoring the school.

The community says investing a little time and a little money now will make kids more successful later.

“It’s an older school. It was built back in the 60’s, so it does have a lot of maintenance needs. We feel that we work here and have kids that go here. We live in the community and we should take care of it and make sure it is here for a long time.”

The school plans on hosting another Painting at the Park day in February. Volunteers say if the weather is nice…they will focus on outdoor maintenance.

A change in venue for holiday vendors

Saturday, November 23rd, 2013

HAMPSTEAD, NC (WWAY) — Vendors enjoyed a different venue this Saturday at the Hampstead Women’s Club Building. The club held a holiday craft fair that brings in artists from all over to one location.

Artists say these small fairs add a more personal touch to sales and target a specific, buying audience.

“It is the best way to market,” said Topsail Island author Carol Ross. “I’ve tried marketing on the internet, but there is nothing like the personal touch of actually talking to people. Making it very personal what you want them to understand about your craft. One on one is the best way to market anything.”

Vendors say these local venues are also less expensive than marketing online or in the mall.
