Another community activity today -- our Spring auction. At 11 am the doors of the Community Center will be open for people to browse all the donated merchandise (chairs, tables, tools, toys, household appliances, you name it). Sandwiches, cold drinks and desserts will be on sale. The auction begins at 1 pm and will continue all afternoon. Check back tomorrow to learn how much money was raised and where it goes.
Also, on this date in 1891 the schooner "Boreniven" from Spain was stranded on Ocracoke's beach. Evidence of various shipwrecks can still be seen here and there along the surf.
