The women of the OcraFolk Opry are truly wonderful. On Saturday night, for the third year in a row, they treated the Ocracoke community with their talent and enthusiasm. Deepwater Theater on School Road was packed for the 8 pm performance. A dozen and a half women (from school age up) entertained their audience with songs (some original, some traditional, some serious, some hilarious), stories, and poems. Kitty Mitchell even created an oil painting on stage as the show proceeded.
Proceeds were donated to the Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Department.
Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is the second half of my father's short journal. I call it Remembering Growing up on Ocracoke. You can read it here.
