A large crowd of residents, elected officials, county staff and invited guests enjoyed a behind-the-scenes look at Currituck County's new Cooperative Extension Center during the facility's "Grand Opening Celebration" on Monday, April 7.

Extension Director Rodney Sawyer Jr. presided over a dual ribbon cutting ceremony to dedicate the main Extension building and the Elizabeth P. Sanderlin Auditorium. The $6.6 million facility was completed in March.

During the initial ribbon cutting, County Commissioners Barry Nelms, Owen Etheridge, Gene Gregory and Janet Taylor joined Cooperative Extension officials to officially open the center. Immediately afterwards, Sawyer introduced a special guest to dedicate the Sanderlin Auditorium.
