It is with such heavy hearts that we announce the retirement of Miss Liz Schaub as one of our most beloved volunteers here at ICO for more than 10 years.
She is such an amazing lady and we have been so very fortunate to know and serve with this caring, giving and selfless woman. Her endless source of energy is so contagious and the way that she treats both the clients and the other volunteers is certainly going to be missed tremendously. Her kindness and soft demeanor made us all feel welcomed and secure. There is no doubt that anyone who came into our office feeling down and out, was most definitely encouraged before they left. Liz Schaub has a way of taking the worst of situations and making them better, just by listening and using her sweet, comforting words.
Thank you for your dedication, love and commitment to this organization. Our community is a better place because you are such a giving part of it and we will miss you more than you could ever know.

NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR
OUR GRAND OPENING
The afternoon of May 28th couldn’t have been a more beautiful day for ICO’s ribbon cutting and open house. More than 100 volunteers, donors, partners and friends gathered on the lawn to celebrate the official opening of our new home at 115 Mustian Street in Kill Devil Hills. The proceedings began with a warm welcome from Karen Brown, the President and CEO of the Outer Banks Chamber of Commerce. ICO’s chairman of the board, Sylvia Wadsworth, spoke of the many moves ICO has made in their eleven year history. She also spoke of how the new building would finally give ICO the permanent home and Identity it so needed.
The Regional Director of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Mr. Randy Gore, praised the work of ICO and expressed his pleasure to be able to provide assistance to such a worthwhile organization. He presented ICO with a plaque signifying the USDA’s assistance with our financing. Father Bill Walsh, Pastor of Holy Redeemer by the Sea, offered a prayer for ICO and a blessing of the building dedicating it to God’s work. The ribbon was finally cut ushering in a new and important part of ICO’s future.
We were all entertained by the beautiful voice of Kim Kalman and the delicious food was provided by The Outer Banks Brewing Station.
