Happy Birthday to native Ocracoker, Muzel Bryant. Muze was born on the island on March 12, 1904. That's right -- she is 100 years old today! Kenny Ballance has planned a community birthday party for Muze tomorrow. The whole island is talking about the big event. After an informal reception and pig pickin' at the schoolhouse the party will continue long into the night at the Pub with rock & roll music and a dance. Muze, who is in wonderful good health, is planning to enjoy every minute of it. Look for photos and a full report in Village Craftsmen's April Newsletter.
Also on this day in history: The Schooner "Venus" was stranded at Hatteras Inlet in 1886, and the Schooner "Lizzie S James" wrecked on Ocracoke's beach in 1900.
