Small town America, by some measures, is much the same across the continent. Small towns, villages, and hamlets in the United States take care of their own. Ocracoke is no exception. Native islander, Tina, who suffers from MS, is now awaiting adult stem cell therapy. Neighbors have responded generously by filling donation jars placed in local businesses. On Saturday, February 6, from 4 - 6 pm, the Ocracoke Methodist Church will host a benefit dinner of seafood gumbo, rice, green salad, and soft drink. If you live on the island, or are visiting over the weekend, please stop by to show your support, and to enjoy some yummy island fare.
