Those who have followed this column are familiar with the OVFD, the Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Department, its genesis and its recent success in creating a new operational building, The Fire House. An interesting history, that.
Well, the 10th Annual Memorial Day Weekend Firemen’s Ball is slated to take place this year on Saturday, 23 May. A peek at their website www.ocracokefiremensball.com is rewarding.
The festivities include a pig pickin’ with the yummiest barbecue, NC style, you ever tasted; silent and live auctions of some neat stuff, and the evening dance with great music by local musicians.
You’ll love it!
