First Lady Ann McCrory Promotes Family Day in North Carolina


    Wilson, NC     North Carolina First Lady Ann McCrory celebrated Family Day with more than 70 students and parents for lunch at Elm City Elementary in Wilson today.

    Family Day is a national initiative created in 2001 by CASA Columbia to promote parental involvement as a key way to prevent substance abuse in children and teens. Family Day is celebrated every year on the fourth Monday in September and reminds parents about the benefits of frequent family dinners.

    “I am honored to join 28 other First Spouses from across the country by serving as an Honorary Chair of Family Day,” said Mrs. McCrory. “I encourage families across North Carolina to make a commitment to spend more time together. Every day activities, such as eating dinner, hosting a game night or tucking your children into bed can make a huge impact and help prevent substance abuse.”

    Lunch was provided by Chick-fil-A and took place from noon-1:00 p.m. in Mrs. Vanessa Johnson’s 5th grade classroom.
