Running of the Leprechauns

This years’ 5K & 10K courses are the same as in the past, just altered slightly to start and finish at nearby Satterfield Soccer Complex. The 10K route includes portions of gravel trail (approx. 2 miles) and is a loop. The 5K is all on the road and is an out-and-back.

Puppy Yoga

10 am – Duck Town Hall (1200 Duck Rd)

We’re back at it! Puppy Yoga last month was such a hit, that we decided to do it again! We currently have to have two litters of ADORABLE puppies that are still nursing and growing with their moms. But they are old enough now to bend and stretch with you!! And we WILL be accepting adoption applications for these babes, too! We hope you’ll join this fundraiser to support your local OBX shelter animals at Duck Town Hall featuring Scott Lawlor, aka PICKLES, as the instructor!

Held annually, the St. Patrick’s Day parade starts at Mile Post 11.5, at the intersection of Bladen Street and South Virginia Dare Trail and typically continues north to Driftwood Street. However, due to stormwater improvement work in the 2400 block of South Virginia Dare Trail, the parade will terminate at Admiral Street where a traffic light at the street’s intersection with South Croatan Highway will provide a safer means of departing the area.

Delta Zeta’s 12th Annual Community Spelling Bee

6pm at Kitty Hawk Elementary School Gymnasium

Spelling for a purpose! Sponsored by Southern Shores Realty. Ensure to sign up beforehand.

As women educators sponsoring the 12th Annual Delta Zeta Community Spelling Bee, we invite you to participate in an evening of fun and fellowship in support of the Dare Education Foundation, the Delta Zeta grants-in-aid which provide financial assistance for Dare County students pursuing degrees in education, and the chapter scholarships which provides assistance to chapter members.

On Monday, March 16, 2020, teams sponsored by businesses, schools, civic groups, and individuals will gather at Kitty Hawk Elementary School gymnasium. The rules require that each team work as a unit to spell the called words; no individual is on the spot, or in the spotlight. A spirit of camaraderie in competition prevails as the team leader gives in writing the group’s decision, one word at a time and one round after another until a winning team emerges. Teams are eliminated on the fourth miss. Each team will also have an opportunity for “buy back” chances after the fourth miss, allowing the team to continue competing. The winning team will have its team name engraved on a perpetual trophy that it can display until next year’s competition. If you are unable to field a team from your business or group, perhaps you would consider becoming an event sponsor by joining our BEEline to Excellence in Education.

Thank you for considering our proposal. We hope you will say “yes” to an enjoyable evening in support of education in Dare County!
