Tonight (Friday) at 7:30 at the Deepwater Theater, everyone is invited to sing along to the grand old Ocracoke original musical, "A Tale of Blackbeard". Julie Howard, who wrote it, is on the island and will play the piano for us as former cast members, audience members and people (like me) who never saw it but have heard so much about it, enjoy this unrehearsed sing-through. It's free; we're asked to bring a dessert to share.
And tomorrow (Saturday) there are at least two big yard sales. The Methodist Church is having their big Bazaar with lunch available beginning at 10:30. And the Village Thrift (behind the Coffee House) is having a yard sale supporting the Youth Center. Both begin at 9 AM; both support worthy causes.
What a busy, busy island!
Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is a transcript of a letter written in 1949 by a visitor to the island. You can read the letter (which provides a glimpse into Ocracoke life sixty years ago) here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news102509.htm.
