Working Watermen's Quilt

Several weeks ago a reader inquired about the quilt raffle in support of the Ocracoke Working Watermen's Association. This was the quilt made by Joyce Reynolds, our former Methodist preacher, from fishing & water-related Ocracoke t-shirts. The drawing was held on Labor Day, and island fisherman Morty Gaskill drew the winning ticket. The Klein family from Gretna, Louisiana won the quilt. According to Robin Payne, when contacted they said, "Thank you. It is a beautiful quilt and a wonderful cause. We love Ocracoke and we will cherish this symbol of it in our families."

Of course, another quilt is right now being raffled by the Ocracoke Preservation Society. If any of our readers would like a chance to win this beautiful Ocracoke quilt, just click on the photo below to purchase raffle tickets (please keep in mind that the photo and description on the re-direct page is last year's quilt; you will be purchasing tickets for a chance to win the quilt pictured below.)
