The North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores, just one mile from the Catnap and worth a much longer drive than that, is giving anyone close enough to get there the opportunity to participate in as may as three special gifts on Veterans Day, November 11th!
Gift the first is from the Aquarium to you: enjoy free admission and family fun. The Aquarium is well worth the regular admission price [Adults (Ages 13-61) -$10.95; Seniors (Ages 62 and older) -$9.95; Military -$9.95; Children (Ages 3-12) -$8.95] and here they are GIVING IT AWAY! What’s not to like?
Gift the second is from you to someone who is truly in need because they are sick or injured: your blood. The Cape Fear chapter of the American Red Cross will be at the Aquarium doing its “starve a vampire” thing in a post-Halloween version!
Finally, the Aquarium is serving as a donation location for Martha’s Mission Cupboard’s charitable food drive. Bring your donation and help those who face a the future without knowing where their next meal might come from.
