Sock Hop

It's not too early to share some fun news. Ocracoke Child Care is sponsoring a Valentine's weekend 1950s "Sock Hop."

Martin Garrish and John Golden, along with island friends, will be entertaining us with an evening of classic early rock & roll tunes (John has just released his newest album of 50s songs).

There will be dance contests, costume contests, even a hula hoop contest. And they will be serving soda shop food -- hamburgers and vanilla cokes!

Mark your calendars for Saturday, February 12. Dance begins at 7 pm at the Ocracoke Community Center. Click on the poster below for more details.

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is the story of Sam Jones, Island Legend. You can read it here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news012111.htm.
