Spreading the Feeling of Thanksgiving Along the Coast

Traditionally, the Thanksgiving holiday introduces a time of reflection and gratitude, as well as charitable goodwill. Here on the North Carolina coast, there are tons of ways for community members to express their thanks and to spread holiday cheer. If you’re already a resident, or think you might want to be, here are some fun ways you can get out with family and friends while contributing to the seasonal spirit.

Living Shoreline Monitoring at Carolina Beach
Nov. 17
Carolina Beach
www.ncparks.gov

Thanks to the milder fall weather here, environmental events and volunteering can continue well into November. This means that the locals can extend a feeling of gratitude to the beautiful beaches and natural areas, including Carolina Beach State Park. Volunteers and federation staff will be doing just that as they take on salt marsh and reef restoration projects to better improve water quality, decrease erosion, and fortify natural habitats. But don’t let that deter you – no special skills are required. Just bring clothes you don’t mind getting dirty, closed-toe shoes, and a willing attitude. Lunch and refreshments will be provided, and anyone 12 and older is welcome to participate. The one hard and fast rule? No single-use plastic bottles.

Stay Forever Young – Dancing Through the Decades Gala
Nov. 18
Wilmington
www.familypromiselcf.org 

Family Promise of the Lower Cape Fear presents an evening of cocktails, dinner and dancing at Cape Fear Community College Union Station. All proceeds from the event and hosted auctions will go toward the families in Family Promise’s housing and shelter programs. Festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. and last until approximately 11:30 p.m. Ticket prices start at $125 and increase with levels of pop culture-inspired sponsorship, or you can submit a donation by visiting this site.

These aren’t the only ways to pitch in for your community and local charitable foundations, of course. But no matter what you choose to do this holiday season or even after, Intracoastal Realty is a regional resource you can trust. If you have questions about a certain area or neighborhood, contact us and see if we can help you find a home and community for which you can be thankful!
