Under The Sea Event and Fort Fisher Aquarium
On July 20, I attended an Under The Sea event with the North Carolina Aquarium Society where I had an opportunity to discuss the $5 million appropriation for the Fort Fisher Aquarium that I was able to get included in the proposed Budget. The Society is comprised of a wonderful group of dedicated individuals that support our State Aquariums at Fort Fisher, Pine Knoll Shores, Roanoke Island, and Jennette's Pier.
On July 26, my grandson, Tee, and I attended a press conference by House Speaker Tim Moore at the Fort Fisher Aquarium to discuss that Aquarium's funding, as well as the $8 million appropriation that I was able to get for the Fort Fisher Historic Site.
While there, Tee and I enjoyed a tour of the Aquarium and its many fascinating exhibits. New Hanover County is very fortunate to have both the Aquarium and the Historic Site. They are fantastic tourist attractions and I encourage everyone to visit and enjoy them with their families.
