It's good to see Braxton back on the island with vegetables for sale; and we are looking forward to the Ocracoke Seafood Company opening next weekend. It's been a long, cold winter; every sign of Spring is welcome.

The Ocracoke Preservation Society Museum is opening today at 10:00 AM. Two new exhibits are planned. There is a fascinating World War II exhibit which was put together by Janey and Dick Jacoby. German U-Boats prowled the Atlantic just off the Outer Banks and the British Cemetery is a solemn reminder of that. The Museum's exhibit explores and honors the service Ocrocokers played in WWII.

And Francis Eubanks will have a photographic display honoring Portsmouth Island in time for the Homecoming events this Spring when many descendants of Portsmouth residents will gather.

This month's Ocracoke Newsletter is about "Ocracats" and was written by Pat Garber. You can read it here:
