Enfield Fishing Creek Paddle
5th December 2020
Come to Enfield and enjoy our history, our landscape, our civic pride and our cultural riches.
Colonial Christmas weekend a great success!
This past December we celebrated our first Oyster Roast at the historic Cellars House in Enfield. We had over 100 people attend and enjoyed the freshest seafood you can imagine from Washington Seafood and Crab Company of Washington, NC.
The Cellars was magnificent with colonial Christmas fresh greenery arrangements by Johnny Short of Enfield. Johnny also did all the colonial greenery at Strawberry Hill, the home of Rob Whitaker, during our Colonial Christmas house tour. These houses were a tour de force along with Halifax Lane Farm (home of Larry & Case Armstrong and Rory the horse), the Whitaker House (home of Doris Calvert and Steven Wille) and the Hoosier House (home of Lynette Hoosier). A huge Thank You to all the owners who opened their homes for visitors to Enfield for the house tour.
The weekend included the annual Enfield Christmas Tree Lighting with a visit by Santa! Enfield Civic Club gave out hot chocolate, ABC2 gave out cookies and hot cider, our own DERP provided chili and Brunswick stew and the Enfield Lions Club along with the Enfield Public Library decorated the tree while our Town strung the lights, planted the tree, and got everything ready for a fun time for children and adults as we all sang carols with the Charlie Hill band! Look for this event in 2020 and don't miss out on all the fun!
We all enjoyed the Christmas trees decorated by local businesses at the Collective Center. Thank you to Andrus Construction, BB&T Bank, Bellamy Manor & Gardens, C&J Logging, Halifax Mutual Insurance Company, Sandy Livermon, and Yoga Magnolia.
A big Thank you to Sarah Adkins and Terri Anderson who chaired the Colonial Christmas weekend and created the best event of the season!
A special thank you to Enfield Historical Church of the Advent and Whitakers Chapel for the very special church services over the weekend with combined choirs from Enfield Baptist Church and Enfield Methodist Church along with Scotland Neck Episcopal Church. These church services complete our very special Christmas weekend.
