North Raleigh Ministries

For many of our neighbors in crisis, each “ordinary" day is a struggle. Individuals and families will go without food so that they can pay their rent and simply keep their lights on.

Whether our world is in crisis or not, we need to continue to be a light for the underserved in our community. Together, we can make a difference in both the ordinary days and the hardest days for our beloved neighbors.

Let’s keep the momentum going! Learn more about taking the next step with NRM at www.northraleighministries.com/get-involved/

It was a fun meeting complete with a cooking demonstration by local celebrities and friends Lisa Prince, her sister Michelle Holland, and Brian Schrader. Lisa and Brian do a segment called Local Dish on WRAL, and it felt like we were in their kitchen today! Cooking and laughing and learning about all the health benefits of eggs grown right here in NC. Lisa joined The North Carolina Egg Association as Assistant Director last year. Lisa has over 15 years experience with the North Carolina Department of Agriculture. We have seen her often at the NC State Fair when we sell peanuts, and we all know Brian from his work at WRAL. It was great to have them all and hear more behind the scenes from WRAL and Lisa's previous show, Flavor, NC.

Our guest speaker today was Olivia Baumann, Marketing and Communications Manager with Outdoor Heritage NC. This organization was established in 2015 by the North Carolina General Assembly. It is housed under Wildlife and exists as its own agency. Outdoor Heritage NC has three staff members now, including the Executive Director, Justin Barr, and Olivia Baumann. They have a fantastic website! Website: https://www.outdoorheritage.nc.gov/
Mission and Vision: The agency's mission is to ensure the health of our youth, natural resources and state by inspiring and enabling the next generation of passionate participants in North Carolina’s outdoor heritage activities. The agency's vision is to see that North Carolina’s great outdoor heritage is passed down to future generations with opportunities to enjoy activities that are accessible, abundant and conveniently located for all.
GO Grants: The North Carolina Schools Go Outside (GO) Grant was created to address the main barrier to getting kids outside during the school day through funding. Field trips and outdoor experiences offer students opportunities to explore and learn in hands-on environments. Qualifying for grants require instructors demonstrate how the experience will address topics currently being taught in class and that the experience meets the goals of the Outdoor Heritage Trust Fund plan. The program goal is to encourage youth to experience the outdoor heritage activities we all love, such as, hunting, fishing, bird watching and hiking.
Patch Program: When students complete one of the featured tasks, they qualify to receive one of the limited edition patches.
For each completed task, youth 16 years old and under will receive the patch for free. Adults and youth over the age of 16 can receive a patch for each successful task, by making a $5 donation to the Outdoor Heritage Trust Fund.

Wake County Sheriff's Office

Wake County Deputy James Pittman was honored by the Exchange Club of Swift Creek last night during the annual Exchange Clubs of Wake County Law Enforcement Recognition Banquet , at Cary Presbyterian Church, for his swift action in February, when he apprehended Stephen Allen Denning, who allegedly shot two Walgreen's employees in Garner, and later tried to make his way into a Raleigh Golden Corral restaurant before being shot by Deputy Pittman, which may have saved more lives.

Also being remembered, was Master Deputy Deputy Stephon Maurice Wall, who passed away a little over one year ago, while working a shift at the Wake County Detention Center. His widow, Veronica Dixon Wall, received a plaque, medal and flowers from the Exchange Club of Swift Creek.

The North Raleigh Exchange Club welcomed Luke Wolf and Matt Gieszl from the SSN 777 Club that supports the current USS North Carolina submarine. Luke and Matt are both graduates of the US Naval Academy in 2008 and served as submarine officers.

The USS North Carolina SSN 777 is a Virginia-class nuclear-powered attack submarine. Commissioned on May 3, 2008, in Wilmington, NC, the “Tarheel Boat” is the fourth U.S. Navy ship to bear the name of North Carolina. There was also an ill-fated ship in the Confederate Navy, CSS North Carolina.Since 2010, the submarine’s home-port has been Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

The North Carolina is the fourth submarine in the Virginia class, the Navy's newest class of submarine and the first ship designed for the post-Cold War environment. It is designed to operate with stealth, agility and endurance in the world's littoral regions, as well as the deep oceans. It has improved stealth, sophisticated surveillance capabilities and special warfare enhancements that will enable it to meet the Navy's multi-mission requirements.

The SSN 777 measures 377 feet long, displaces 7,800 tons when submerged and is manned by a crew of 130. This state-of-the-art submarine is capable of supporting a multitude of combat missions, including anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare, strike, naval special warfare, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, irregular warfare and mine warfare.

Matt Gieszl (pictured right) served 3 years onboard USS Jacksonville; then served at the Naval Submarine Training Center Pacific in Pearl Harbor, HI. While there, his primary job was to train the officers and enlisted personnel on how to use the new systems before they would return to full operational duty.

Luke Wolf, (pictured left) served on the USS West Virginia for one year and then the USS Alaska, and later served as the submarine liaison officer for Destroyer Squadron 31 in Pearl Harbor, HI. His final tour on active duty was as an Assistant Professor of Naval Science where he instructed undergraduate NROTC students on the subjects of Naval Engineering and Naval Weapons Systems.

Matt and Luke both represent the SSN 777 Club at speaking engagements and share their recent and unique perspectives on the experience of being submarine officers.

I am an Area Representative with Pan Atlantic Foundation. We are seeking host families in the local area to host exchange students for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year. Students range in age from 16-18 years of age. Students arrive with their own medical insurance and spending money. They're excited to share their culture with an American family. Host families can be single, married, divorce folks; however, they must be able to pass a background check. I'd be happy to discuss available student with any interested host families. I can be reached via message or phone at (919) 455-4630.
