“North Carolina Weekend” legendary host Deborah Holt Noel and crew visited Wilmington on October 3rd to film its upcoming feature on wartime Wilmington and our designation as America’s First World War II Heritage City.
The popular PBS NC show, now in its 21st season, will air on November 9th.
The crew began the shoot at the restored WWII Hannah Block Historic USO/Community Arts Center museum. Retired Navy Captain and author/military historian Wilbur Jones, who was heavily involved in the 12-1/2 year Heritage City project, hosted Ms. Noel.
Here they are together in these 2 photos. “Deborah’s smile and personality are just as lovely and lively in person. Meeting and working with her was a professional pleasure,” Jones said.
