CHAPEL HILL – The semi-annual Shred-A-Thons for confidential paper will be held on October 10 at University Mall and October 12 at the recycling site behind Home Depot in Hillsborough.

University Mall will have the option to either walk-up or drive-through.  The Hillsborough location will be drive-through only.

Both events take place from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and are open to residents and businesses of Orange County.  There is a five box limit per event to reduce capacity issues faced in previous years.


The Orange County Department of Aging is inviting Orange County residents to explore alternative housing options for seniors as part of its Master Aging Plan.

The department is hosting a three-part lecture and discussion series in the Fall entitled “Aging in Community: Planning for Our Future.”  The series will be held on the third Tuesday of every month beginning at 6:30 p.m.

The kick-off event is Tuesday at the United Church of Chapel Hill featuring acclaimed author Sarah Susanka.


The 2013 College Fair is a great way to get lots of college information in one location.  The event takes place Tuesday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Dean Smith Center.

No registration is necessary to attend the event.  More than 100 colleges and universities are scheduled to be in attendance.  Bring your questions along with something to hold information.
