Crossroads facilty to host open house

ELIZABETHTOWN — Southeastern Carolina Crossroads, a facility offering drug and alcohol rehabilitation, will host an open house on Sunday, June 28, from 2 to 4 p.m.

Bruce Cannon, missions director for the Bladen Baptist Association, said the entire campus — which covers the former site of Camp E-Tik-Etu — will be open to tours by the public.

“We want to show off all the Lord has given us to help those with addiction problems …” Cannon said.

He added that a brief ceremony will be held just after 2 p.m. with State Rep. William Brisson (D-Dublin), who was instrumental in getting the facility established. Also speaking will be David Chestnutt, executive director of the facility, along with Cannon.

Light refreshments will be served during the event. Visitors will be able to come and go as they need.

Cannon said the facility can be a bit challenging to find. The 911 address is 1086 Susie Sandhill Road in Elizabethtown.

— To get there from the south: Travel through Elizabethtown on U.S. 701 and head north out of Elizabethtown for one mile. Turn left onto N.C. 242 and immediately to the right to stay on N.C. 242. Travel north on N.C. 242 for just under five miles, then turn right onto Johnsontown Road (road on which Bladen Lakes Middle School is located). Stay on Johnsontown Road for 6.5 miles. Turn left onto Susie Sandhill Road and go one mile. Turn right onto the gravel road and proceed to the Administration Building parking area. The ceremony will be held there.

Cannon said carpooling is recommended, especially for church groups, since parking may become limited.
