Ocracoke Preservation Society holds its annual Fall Meeting this Tuesday, November 10 at 6:00 at the Community Center. There will be a Pot Luck Dinner followed by a brief business meeting at which the 2010 Board will be elected, the annual Historic Preservation Award will be presented, brief updates will be heard from the President, Treasurer and Administrator and the eagerly awaited drawing for the striking quilt that was made and donated by Ocracoke's Needle and Thread Club will take place.
Following the meeting, there will be an auction at which you can bid for some island treasures that have been donated to OPS for the purpose of fund raising.
All OPS members who are on the island are urged to attend, and everyone else is invited to come, join and bid!
Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is a transcript of a letter written in 1949 by a visitor to the island. You can read the letter (which provides a glimpse into Ocracoke life sixty years ago) here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news102509.htm.
