Craven County is celebrating it up this weekend! This year marks the 300th Anniversary of the county and in honor of the birthday a series of events have been planned to celebrate the area history. Not only is the celebration for those from Craven County, but many of the neighboring counties as well – Beaufort, Carteret, Jones, Lenoir, & Onslow included.
The event is sponsored by the Family History Society of Eastern North Carolina. Events will be held on Friday, August 20th & Saturday, August 21st. More details can be found on the event website at http://www.encfamilies.org.
There is also an article in the New Bern Sun Journal worth reading for personal stories of some of those attending. To all those going, have a great time and share pictures with those of us that can’t attend!
