Baseball...and More

Ocracoke's new ball field and community park came closer to becoming a reality Wednesday afternoon as boys & girls, parents, friends, neighbors, and interested citizens gathered to witness the ground breaking ceremony.














The field is still just sand, and it will have to be improved and expanded, but everything appears to be in place to have a usable playing field by next spring.

Many thanks to all of the people who had the vision, energy, time, and resources to make this a reality. Generations of island children will benefit.

This month's Ocracoke Newsletter is a tribute to a wonderful man who did much for Ocracoke Island, Marvin Wyche Howard (1897-1969). You can read it here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news052113.htm.

    We might want to contribute something to this cause. I may be wrong bur it seems like we read something a while back at this site of someone selling fund raising T shirts for this cause? Who is a contact person concerning this field project. Thanks.
