Putting a Stop to Elderly Abuse

Like many states and countries, there is an on-going concern of the growing number of Elder Abuse reports to our county departments of social services. Last year, many reports of abuse, neglect or exploitation of elders were reported in North Carolina of which 395 were in Davidson County. Experts believe that for every case reported in the US, 23 go unreported. It is crucial that we all bring awareness and be a voice for those who can’t speak for themselves.

Typically each year the Governor of North Carolina signs a proclamation designating Mother’s Day through Father’s Day as “Vulnerable and Elder Abuse Awareness Month”.  Like so, a proclamation is signed by the President of the United States proclaiming June 15 as “World Elder Abuse Awareness”.

In an effort to do something unique to raise awareness, in 2013, Senior Services Director, Thessia Everhart-Roberts changed her email font color to purple and placed a logo on outgoing emails and asks others to do the same. Each year, the outpouring of people participating in North Carolina, across the nation, and as far away as Australia and Ireland has been astounding.

Come to the Scotland Neck Senior Center to be a part of this great occasion June 15, 2018 at 11:15 am.

Mayor's Message

Welcome to the Town of Scotland Neck on-line. We are located in the southeastern section of Halifax County. Scotland Neck serves as an employment, retail, banking, medical, dining and cultural center for the entire southeastern portion of the county. We are known for our wide main street with center parking, beautiful crepe myrtle trees and very friendly people. We are proud of the fact that we do not have a stop light in town and it is because everyone drives with caution and courtesy.

Come to Scotland Neck and you will find a land of unspoiled beauty. The quiet, scenic Roanoke River winds its way just eight miles North of town. The Roanoke River lures those who enjoy fishing, hunting, boating, camping, birding, and the great outdoors. You will also be reminded of our blessed good fortune in having well-maintained community facilities, such as the Scotland Neck Memorial Library, Municipal Complex with a 714 seat auditorium, Senior Citizens Center, Police and Fire station , public and private schools, EMS station, Halifax Community College Satellite site, Wellness Center, Scotland Neck Family Medical Center and Hospital.

We invite you to visit us and see what you have been missing.  Come spend a day or spend a lifetime.

Proud of Our Past and Excited about Our Future
