Jackson Hardee to Represent New Hanover County Schools as the 2016 US Presidential Scholar Nominee

Congratulations to Jackson Hardee, Jim's son, for being selected to represent New Hanover County Schools as the 2016 U.S. Presidential Scholar nominee. Each school district in the state selects one student to represent the district. Five students will then be selected to represent North Carolina at the national level.

 The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program began in 1964 to honor some of the Nation's top graduating seniors. The program also seeks to recognize students who show exceptional talent in the visual, creative, and performing arts. Jackson is currently in the Hoggard Adobe Academy program and is a fourth year honors German language student.

Post graduation, Jackson plans to attend NC State University.

When the beach breezes cool down and dusk comes a little earlier, you know it’s time for Wrightsville Beach’s most delicious event – The Taste of Wrightsville Beach. Hosted by the Wrightsville Beach Foundation, this year’s gathering will be held on the waterfront at MarineMax on Saturday, October 10th, 2015 from 5pm – 8pm.

Dozens of local restaurants are set to participate in this year’s competition, with celebrity judges deciding the winners of Best Savory Dish, Best Sweet Dish, and Best Overall Dish.

People’s Choice Awards will be named by festival attendees, who can sample cuisine, beer and wine from more than 30 booths.

Proceeds from The Taste of Wrightsville Beach will help support the New Hanover County Weekend Meals on Wheels Program, and the Cape Fear Community College Pineapple Guild, a club for Hotel-
Restaurant and Culinary Technology students.

17TH Annual Brits at the Beach Car Show

If car shows make your heart race, you'll want to make sure you check out a truly unique event at Wrightsville Beach Park in September.

The British Motor Club of the Cape Fear will be hosting its 17th Annual Brits at the Beach Car Show on Saturday, September 26, 2015. A dazzling array of British sports cars will be on display, including MG Roadsters, Jaguars, Triumphs and Austin Healeys - just to name a few of the models you'll see.

The event kicks off with registration at 9am at the Wrightsville Beach Show Field, and in addition to rows and rows of beautifully restored British machines, you can enjoy food vendors, a 50/50 raffle and music by the Rusty Bumpers. Founded in 1988 by a small but dedicated group of British car enthusiasts, the British Motor Club of the Cape Fear has grown its ranks to more than 100 members today.

The group holds monthly meetings and a variety of events throughout the year - with the Brits at the Beach show serving as their cornerstone event. The club proudly donates proceeds from the event to a variety of local charities. For more information on this year's show, visit the club's website at www.bmccf.org.
