The Language of Carteret County - September 27th
Description: Have you ever been mommicked? What is a scrape? Why do we, native speaking residents of Carteret County, talk the way we do? This talk will be a study of our cultural language with some interesting angles.
The "Hood" of My Youth - October 11th
Description: The western section of Morehead City, a neighborhood historically referred to as "above the bridge" is where our speaker grew up. Back then, it was like a scene from the "Ozzie and Harriet Show" or a clip from "Leave it to Beaver": everything was good, cause no one ever died, no one ever got divorced, no one ever got in trouble, and every household had at least three kids.
Up West and Down East: The Geography of Carteret County - October 25th
Description: Why is South River on the top and North River on the bottom. Only in Carteret county Why, when we go from Portsmouth to Cape Lookout are we going "up the Banks? What does the word “sound” really mean when attached to a body of water? Why do we use the words Bogue Banks, Shackleford Banks, or Core Banks, when they are all just one bank?
The Community of Davis - November 1st
Description: What the difference between Davis Shore, Davis Ridge, and Davis Island? Who invented “vertical” flight? What was the World Federation of Nations? Attendees will learn the answers to these and a multitude of other questions posed by our presenter as he delves into a compelling study of a Down East community that possesses a very diverse history and colorful past.
Rodney's Annual Christmas Show - December 13th
Description: What has become a Christmas tradition for many locals who call Carteret County home year round is Rodney's "not brand new, but warm and fuzzy" Christmas program. To end the year on a positive note, he will bring stories of "feel good" remembrances, of Christmas's past, a lively sing-a-longs, and a smattering of prose. Rodney's granddaughter, Emma Kemp, will once again read the original "Night before Christmas" followed closely by Rodney's reading of Carteret County's version. As with past Christmas Shows, he will conclude with his touching "The Christmas Child Story."
