It's December already and a time to think about the Holidays so close at hand. I assume that most of you that read this journal do so because you have a connection with the island. It may be a connection of family, friends, a summer home here or maybe a connection of the heart. Whatever it might be, Ocracoke has given you all something special. I'd like to suggest that those of you who love this island give something back to her this Christmas season. The Ocracoke Preservation Society is working hard to keep Ocracoke the quiet, beautiful island you love to visit and the tasks they face are formidable. Please consider becoming a member of OPS or sending a contribution to help in this effort. You can contact the Ocracoke Preservation Society at www.ocracokepreservation.org or phone 252-928-7375. The Island thanks you.
