Tonight at 6 o'clock members and friends of Ocracoke Preservation Society will gather at the Community Center for our Spring Membership Meeting and Potluck Dinner. After dinner and a brief business meeting several islanders will share stories. James Barrie Gaskill and Rex O'Neal will tell the hilarious story about when they carried fresh Ocracoke oysters on the plane to Las Vegas. I will tell about the 1861 wreck of the Black Squall, the sailing vessel that was carrying a circus and menagerie of wild animals.
If you are on the island be sure to come on out, fill your plate with delicious home cooked dishes, enjoy the stories, and support OPS. You'll be glad you did.
