Mrs. Leonard's Latin 2 class at Morehead High School made decorations for the MARC's fundraiser, the Ides of MARC. We were proud to display their clever, "punny" posters at our event and grateful for their help.

A special thanks to our talented chefs, whose scrumptious dishes and sent us home with full bellies and plates of leftovers. We are also grateful to local businesses, especially Sophisticated Soul and Sheila's Cakes in Reidsville. Pictured from left to right: Jordan Rossi, Carolyn Flemmings, Valencia Abbott, Deborah R. Dillard, Cathy Scales, Janet Rakestraw, Bob Carter, Bonnie Brooks, Marcia Jones, Sheila Collins, Lamont Fields, and Daphne Roach.
From the Desk of Nadine Case:
From start to finish we are blessed to have incredible volunteers at MARC! Because of their hard work and dedication, all of our events and projects have been very successful over the past year.
Sometimes, you have to start from scratch. Each time I struggled to update this website, I became more and more convinced that it was time to wipe the slate clean on www.theMARConline.org and begin again with a more user-friendly platform. Surely, if I couldn't navigate the old website as the administrator, it would have been extremely difficult for you as the user.
I have two goals for this new space. First, that it provides all the information you might need to visit us - who we are, where we're located, our hours, admission, upcoming events, etc. Second, that "Blog" page in particular becomes an interactive and educational space, where people can visit to learn about our events, artifacts, and operations.
