News Around Town: National Humanities; Wilson Park Path; Low-Cost Rabies Clinic
CHAPEL HILL – A local painter will join a New York photographer in an arctic exhibit Wednesday evening at the National Humanities Center in Research Triangle Park.
Nerys Levy and Ron Jautz have both visited the north and south arctic regions and through capturing the beauty in their artworks, are speaking to their passion and concern over global climate change.
The reception for the works included in the exhibit Polar Worlds: Images of the Arctic and Antarctic is free and open to the public. It will take place at the National Humanities Center Wednesday from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.
Town officials, staff, and State dignitaries will be in attendance for the ribbon-cutting ceremony of the one-third-mile-long path that stretches from Wilson Park and intersects Estes Drive just south of the railroad tracks.
Thursday’s event is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. and will last approximately one hour. Wilson Park is located on Williams Street near the intersection of Estes Drive and Greensboro Street.
Orange County Animal Services offers a low-cost rabies vaccination clinic Thursday evening.
By North Carolina law, dogs, cats, and ferrets older than four months must be vaccinated at all times and must wear their rabies vaccination tag. Thursday’s event gives local residents the chance to fulfill that requirement for just $10, and Animal Services is accepting cash only for this particular clinic. The vaccine lasts one year.
The Low-Cost Rabies Vaccination Clinic takes place Thursday from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Public Market House on Margaret Street in Hillsborough.
