Candidate's Night in Sneads Ferry Cancelled

According to the SFCCChair, candidates night in Sneads Ferry, scheduled for Tuesday, October 24th at 7:00 p.m, has been cancelled due to lack of interest. Less than one hundred people turned out for the event last week, so only about half of the candidates were willing to return this week.

Incorporation Issue

We probably won't be hearing so much incorporation rhetoric in the coming months due to a prolonged delay in a referendum. According to the information provided at candidates night on October 17th, we won't be deciding on the issue until late 2007 or even 2008. The interim council is still preparing their package for submission and there is also an election coming up on November 7th, which means the board of elections is going to be extremely busy. The board of elections must certify all of the names on the incorporation petition before the package is submitted to Raleigh. Even though incorporation might not be the topic of everyday conversation, please remember, it will most likely go to referendum. SO BE REGISTERED TO VOTE AND GO VOTE WHEN IT COMES!!

Sneads Ferry People Enjoy Wilmington Riverfest!

It is that time of year when the festivals and fairs make those beautiful coastal Carolina nights that much more fun. Yes, the Wilmington Riverfest is going on in full bloom!

Although it is not right in Sneads Ferry, on Saturday, October 7, 2006 several of us from Sneads Ferry attended the Riverfest to take in the vendors, the shows (e.g. bands, jugglers and live shows), food concessions and more...

Of course we had to try out the cheese fries and the funnel cake. There was so much food there it was overwhelming. Also, the bands kept playing late into the night with a wide variety of music to fit most every taste. Here again, this family friendly event held true to form as fun for all including the bull riding, rock climbing and just good ole time on the river.

Special events occur each day of the fest to include: lighted flotilla, fireworks, skateboarding and so much more!

The following are pictures of just a small portion of the things to do while at the Riverfest.
