1942: A Remembrance
1 February 2018
As the Untied State became fully militarized after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Halifax County residents and natives of the local area soon found themselves among the more than three million men drafted into the United States armed forces in 1942. The South Boston – Halifax County Museum is proud to present this tribute to those who served in the U.S. Armed forces during that period of time and an examination of the numerous changes that a global war brought to Halifax County. On display are a number of artifacts from the North African campaign and the Pacific theater, military uniforms, and much more.

The Southside Community Services Board’s 2018 Art Show – “Things that Make Me Smile” was an opportunity for the individuals we serve to express themselves and showcase their talents and abilities. The focus was to reflect the positive effects that creativity and art have on the development and healing process.
The SSCSB is a non-profit organization that serves the tri-county area of Brunswick, Mecklenburg & Halifax in addressing the needs of the community in mental health, behavioral health, intellectual and developmental disabilities, crisis intervention and substance abuse as well as partnering with numerous local organizations. The SSCSB services are available to adults and children. With over 18 locations throughout the region, some of the services provided to the community include Outpatient Therapy, Day Support, Skill Building, Residential, Substance Abuse, Prevention, Case Management, and Crisis Intervention.
A total of eighty-nine individuals served by the agency were represented this year, each submitting a piece based on the theme: “Things that make me smile.” Of these 89 pieces, 1st place and 2nd place winners were chosen along with 12 honorable mention selections to be featured in the upcoming SSCSB 2019 calendar.
