Party, Party, Party

I am a bit late posting this blog, but Hurricane Arthur interrupted the flow of my writing.

Late last month Martha & Wilson Garrish celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary by throwing a lavish outdoor party for the community. Everything, including beverages, was free, but donations to the Ocracoke Community Park were requested.

The food was catered by the Flying Melon Restaurant, and music was provided by The Maxx. Here are a few photos:

 A good time was had by all, young and old alike...and donations went to a very good cause!

Happy Anniversary, Martha & Wilson!

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is the story of Ocracoke's Agnes Scott, direct descendant of Agnes Scott for whom the women's college in Decatur, Georgia is named. You can read the Newsletter here:

    What is the status of the park these days? Last I read about it they were finishing a bulkhead. Since it is near Loopshack Hill maybe an opportunity for some educational signage about WWII. Thanks.

    1. I haven't been out to the Park lately, but I know they have been working on it. Discussions are underway about trying to connect the Community Park with Loop Shack Hill by way of a path/boardwalk over the marsh. Much depends on adjacent property owners and environmental concerns.
