Ocracoke's new ball field and community park came closer to becoming a reality Wednesday afternoon as boys & girls, parents, friends, neighbors, and interested citizens gathered to witness the ground breaking ceremony.
The field is still just sand, and it will have to be improved and expanded, but everything appears to be in place to have a usable playing field by next spring.
Many thanks to all of the people who had the vision, energy, time, and resources to make this a reality. Generations of island children will benefit.
This month's Ocracoke Newsletter is a tribute to a wonderful man who did
much for Ocracoke Island, Marvin Wyche Howard (1897-1969). You can read
