Ocracoke Civic & Business Association slates two meetings next week

Dr. Whitney Knollenberg will present her findings on her recent study on Ocracoke workforce development from 1 to 3 p.m. Monday (May 7) in the Community Center.

Among the OCBA’s Civic meeting at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday (May 9) in the Berkley Manor will be a presentation of the association’s 2018-2019 budget.
