As the year draws to a close, another Ocracoke tradition looms, for on 8 December (5-7 PM) we’ll have our Tree Lighting together with music and wassail punch. We’ve always wondered what the latter really is, so we looked it up (Google, of course).
Borrowing from one referemce, ’tis “mulled (another chase*) ale, curdled cream, roasted apples, eggs, cloves, ginger, nutmeg and suger.
The OPS Gift Shop will, of course, be open and welcoming, together with a raffle for a spectacular quilt lovingly made by the Ocracoke Needle and Thread Club.
Join us at the OPS Museum.
