Looking for That Unique Christmas Gift?

— Written By N.C. Cooperative Extension

N.C. Cooperative Extension may have the perfect gift you have been looking for, “Carolina Preserves.”  

William Magnum’s, “Carolina Preserves,” a coffee table book is here just in time for the holidays! Each 16” x 14” book is hand signed and features the artist’s perspective of North Carolina with reflections from some of the state’s most unique personalities, including: Michael Jordan, William C. Friday, James B. Hunt, Jr., Julius Chambers, Dean Smith, C.D. Spangler, Mama Dip, John M. Belk, Hugh McColl, Shirley A. Caesar, James Martin, Hugh Martin, Billy & Ruth Graham, and Betty Ray McCain.

Books are available at the Burke County Cooperative Extension office at a cost of $40 each, with 100% of the proceeds going to benefit Extension programming in North Carolina.  Ten dollars of the cost will support the state development fund, while the $30 will remain in Burke County to provide scholarships for youth and programming in BURKE County.  This endeavor was made possible by a generous gift from RBC Centura.  A limited amount of books will be available by the Christmas holidays. After Christmas, books will need to be pre-ordered by calling the Burke County Extension Office.  Supplies are limited and will be sold on a first-come first –served basis.
