The Ocracoke Preservation Society fall membership meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 10 in the Deepwater Theater, not Nov. 9 as was reported in the print edition of the Ocracoke Observer.

Blanche Howard Jolliff will be honored with the society’s second Cultural Heritage Award. Last year the inaugural award went to Earl O’Neal Jr.

 

The winner of the 2015 Historic District House Award will also be announced.

Philip Howard will be the speaker on the topic of island cemeteries. He promises not to be morbid or scary.

This is a pot luck event and new members are welcome.
