Happy Thanksgiving!

I know we are one day early...but all of the folks at Village Craftsmen join me in wishing our readers a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!

Village Craftsmen will be closed Thanksgiving Day, not only to celebrate the holiday with family and friends...but also to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the Battle of Ocracoke between Lt. Robert Maynard of the British Royal Navy and Blackbeard the pirate and his crew.

A ceremony will be held tomorrow at 10 am at Springer's Point to remember the battle and the sailors who lost their lives November 22, 1718. For more information about the event click here:

This month's Ocracoke Newsletter is Lachlan Howard's essay about the Fresnel Lens and its use in theater, solar ovens, cameras, and industry, as well as lighthouse illumination. You can read it here:
