   0.3 mile walking and biking trail, outdoor

   state-of-the-art playground and picnic
   area. The park should be completed by

    ARTS CENTER
    COMING TO LELAND!


   We often get the question,
   “What’s happening at the
   building in front of Magnolia
   Greens that the Town
   purchased?” We are happy
   to say that the Town is in
the process of creating the Leland Cultural Arts Center at 1212
Magnolia Village Way. The Town has been working with John Sawyer
Architects of Wilmington to design a facility that will provide a hub of
activity for Leland and northern Brunswick County.

For more information on the center (including preliminary designs) and
how you can get involved with this exciting project, visit
the Town's website



 
INTERNET SAFETY TIPS!

The Internet has made all of our lives easier. Banking, shopping,
communicating with friends and family are all easier because of
advances in the Internet. Unfortunately, the Internet has also
made it easier for those who wish do us harm. The Internet, and
the speed at which it can be acquired, has created new issues for the
safety and privacy of those who use the Internet. LEARN MORE! about
a list of rules to make internet surfing for you and your kids more
enjoyable.



   CITIZEN'S ACADEMY

   Officer Mejia is currently putting together a
   Citizen’s Academy for the Police Department.
   After completing the curriculum and securing the
   schedule the Police Department will make an
   announcement telling the public how they can sign up.

The academy will be an 8-10 week class, meeting once a week at
the Police Department. Graduates of the academy will be able to help
with volunteer positions within the Crime Prevention/Community
Policing Division of the Police Department.

Stay tuned for details to come in the near future.
