Someone asked me recently: "living on Ocracoke, what's the most important thing to own?" At least half seriously I responded, "A Priority Pass for the ferry!"
I understand there's a posting at the Post Office bulletin board that new Priority Passes will be available at the Community Center this Tuesday (A-K) and Wednesday (L-Z) for those who already have one.
Bring your old pass, car registration, driver's license proof of Ocracoke PO Box. I'm writing this from memory, so check the bulletin board for times and to make sure my details are correct.
