Pamlico County
Tobacco Referendum

Public Announcement Pamlico County Tobacco Research Referendum The Pamlico County Tobacco Research Referendum will be held on Thursday, November 19, 2015. The polling location for the referendum will be located at the Pamlico County Cooperative Extension office in Alliance, NC. Pamlico County Cooperative Extension 13724 NC Hwy. 55 Alliance, NC 28509 Phone: 252-745-4121 Email: Daniel_simpson@ncsu.edu                                                                                                                                        The referendum is being held to let tobacco growers decide if they wish to continue the self-assessment program. This program has been in place since 1991, and the law requires that a new referendum be held every six years. A 2/3 favorable vote will mean that growers are willing to continue to assess themselves to support tobacco research and education. The assessment is ten cents per hundred pounds of tobacco produced in North Carolina. The funds, about $300,000 annually, is collected at buying stations by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, and then allocated by the Tobacco Research Commission to research and extension projects for tobacco at NC State University. For more information on the referendum please call your County Extension Office at 252-745-4121.

NEW!!! 4-H Sewing
Club

Pamlico County 4-H has a NEW Sewing Club. This group under the direction of Carolyn Sinclair will have their first official meeting on September 22, 2014 at the Pamlico County Library from 3pm-5pm. The club began out of interest of the sewing workshop Ms Carolyn presented during Summerfest. There is currently space for 2 more youth. Youth must be 9-18 years old. Youth will focus on basic sewing projects, learning the parts of the sewing machine, and being able to read patterns. At their first meeting the club will establish their club name and begin on a patchwork shoulder bag. You do not need to own a sewing machine or have any previous experience. If you are interested in joining the sewing club, please contact Sarah Delap, 4-H agent, at 252-745-4121.
