The Ocracoke Preservation Society announced this afternoon (Saturday, Dec. 8) that due to the impending severe winter storm heading to the region and expected to begin tonight, the Local Shopping Day and the Annual Historic Homes Tour set for tomorrow have been canceled.

“We are working on a new date and will keep you updated,” said OPS Director Andrea Powers. The tentative new date for the homes tour will be from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 14.  

The Local Shopping Day is rescheduled for noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15. 

The Ocracoke Health Center Fundraiser Dance is still on schedule for this evening from 7 to 10 p.m.  at the Ocracoke Oyster Company with the Ocracoke Rockers, featuring a dessert table, cash bar and prizes for a $10 admission.
