Phase 1 Re-opening Plan

The staff and Board of Directors is excited to announce we are in a Phase 1 Re-opening period, planned to be in place from March 1-April 30.  Our staff is working weekdays from 9am – 1 pm; we ask you to make an appointment before coming to the Center. Masks are worn at all times in the Center and other details are outlined below. With an appointment, adhering to Phase 1 guidelines, you will be able to come to the Center for health consultation, to borrow equipment or to attend a small group meeting. 

Beginning April 1 (no fooling!) you can call the Center to discuss a handyperson request. Handypersons will be able to assist you in your home if conditions to mitigate risk of infection are in place. We have not yet resumed our full transportation program, however, Fearrington Cares volunteers will pick up groceries that you order (and pay for) online. We will not go to a resident’s home, pick up cash or credit cards and shop for residents – the service is limited to picking up prepaid orders from grocery stores or pharmacies. Request this service using our transportation extension on our voice mail after you have information about a pickup time.

Program Description: It has been a long year, and it has been an even longer year since last spring. So, when the red, red robin comes bob, bob, bobbing along, members of the Fearrington Cares Education Committee hope that all residents of the Village will be more able to enjoy time outdoors. One sure way to enjoy the natural environment is to become more familiar with the birds of our area. We are delighted to bring you Nathan Swick, a celebrated ornithologist, to educate and engage us with our feathered friends.

Nate Swick served for a decade as the editor of The American Birding Association (ABA) blog, a frequent contributor to www.10000birds.com, and a member of the North Carolina Bird Records Committee. Nate has been a birder for more than 20 years and helps lead birding excursions for ABA events and the Carolina Bird Club. He has discussed his book, The Beginners Guide to Birding (2018), at McIntyre’s and he is returning to Fearrington (via Zoom) for this special presentation.

Login Credentials Forthcoming

Program Description: Dr. Seth Crockett, a practicing gastroenterologist and endoscopist at UNC, as well as an Associate Professor in the School of Medicine at UNC, will provide an overview of gut health and aging. As part of this program he will also discuss colorectal cancer screening options, including colonoscopy. Dr. Crockett has been on the UNC faculty since 2012. His research relates to cancer epidemiology of the gastrointestinal tract, screening and prevention of colorectal cancer, and colonoscopy quality. Please bring to the session any of your questions about GI conditions.


20. Know Your Emergency Response Team | Thursday, May 27, 1:30 to 2:30 PM via Zoom

Login Credentials Forthcoming

Program Description: Plan to attend this informative discussion about the way you will be taken care of when you call 911. We all count on these helpers in an emergency; you will learn what you can do to have the best experience possible. The roles of the dispatcher, the fire department, and FirstHealth ambulance service will be outlined by FirstHealth Chatham County Director Tim Simmons. Primary focus will be the explanation of various actions taken once EMS is on scene. A Q&A session will conclude the discussion.


An Invitation to Suggest Programming

Fearrington Cares Education Committee invites your thoughts and suggestions! In the next few months, the committee will be planning for sessions that will begin in September 2021. We hope that these sessions will be in-person come the fall; if that is not possible, we plan to continue with Zoom sessions. For review, here is the link to review previous programs: Link to Previous Programs.

To assist in our planning, please reply to this invitation with topics and speakers related to your health and well being, and also let us know if you have attended any of our Education Programs on Zoom in the last 10 months. Thanks in advance for your thoughtful contributions.

Email your replies to THIS ADDRESS  or call 919-542-6877 between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm Monday through Friday.



An Additional Digital Resource — Free Virtual Concert

A Gift to the Community from the Fearrington Village Concert Association

The Fearrington Village Concert Association has commissioned a video concert by pianist Frederick Moyer and is making a gift of the concert to the Fearrington Community. Fred Moyer has appeared as piano soloist with most of the major orchestras of the United States, as well as many orchestras of Europe, Asia, South America, Africa, and Australia. He is well-known to Fearrington, having appeared many times in the Fearrington Concert Series and most recently in October 2019. The program moves from classical music to jazz and includes music by Felix Mendelssohn, Robert Schumann, Sergi Rachmaninoff, and Oscar Peterson. It is an absolute delight and a welcome treat during this period. It is available on an ‘unlisted’ YouTube address.
