100 Years

Happy Birthday Ann Scarborough! Ann is 100 years old today, and just as sharp as ever. She lives with her son Al, and his wife Linda. She can tell you all about Ocracoke before paved roads and ferries...and she'll also let you know what she thinks about current events.

Al & Linda are hosting an open house today, so stop by and wish Ann a very happy birthday.

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is a reprint of an article Philip wrote about sailing aboard the historic two-masted schooner, Mary E. It was originally published in the Washington Post in 1976. You can read it here:

    Happy Birthday Mrs Scarborough. Well I think the White House will send a greeting if enough notice is given to honor the birthday with a rather nice card. If folks are turning 100 find out what to do to have the special presidential wishes sent your way. Save the post office send a card and letter in the mail.
