Do you have a vintage clock or watch...a wind up clock that has sentimental value...but that no longer runs? If so, and you would like to have it evaluated by a professional clock repairman, contact Janey Jacoby at ofpa332 at gmail dot com.
Edgar Hume, clock repairman, will be on the island until September 20, and he will be holding a clock clinic as a fundraiser for the Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Department.
Even though the clinic is a fundraiser for OVFD (Edgar is donating all of the money to the Fire Department) the clinic will be held in the Methodist Church Recreation Hall on School Road.
Edgar will offer the following services:
- Evaluate your vintage clock and do a simple fix, if needed, for $10.00 per clock.
- Evaluate a pocket watch or a music box and do a simple fix, if needed, for $10.00 each.
- Should the clock or music box be too hard to carry, a picture or two would do for an evaluation.
Please, no plug in or battery clocks.
Many thanks to Edgar for this service to our community, and especially to the Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Department.
