Ocracoke Preservation Society (OPS) will hold an Evening at the Commons event on Wednesday, Oct. 25, starting at 5 pm. 

Everyone is invited to join for wine and a walk through the building project and the garden space, which has been diligently planted over the summer. 

The night is dedicated in gratitude to all the project sponsors and friends who have helped along the way. 

From 6 to 7 p.m. that night, Ocracoke Alive will host a silent auction of 22 artist mural panels that have adorned the edges of the Commons area over the summer.

These panels include those of 12 student works, which were collaborations from Ocracoke Arts Week this year.

All proceeds will benefit the Island Inn restoration.

Online pre-bidding for all panels is available now through 9 p.m. on Oct. 24.

The OPS will hold a free evening of ghost stories with Amy Howard and David Tweedie at 7 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 29 at the Island Inn Commons.
