OCBA Meeting on Wednesday

Press Release
OCBA Meeting on Wednesday

The Ocracoke Civic & Business Association will hold its monthly meeting at 6 p.m.

Wednesday, Feb. 22, in the Ocracoke Community Center.
This is in deference to the community who, on Tuesday, Feb. 21, will attend the first round of the state high school basketball championships in which the Ocracoke School varsity boys’ basketball team are playing at home.

At the OCBA’s meeting held Jan. 28 in the Deepwater Theater, the group decided to meet at 6 p.m. every third Tuesday of the month. Unforeseen was that the Feb. 21 (the third Tuesday of this month) date would conflict with Ocracoke School championship basketball.

Wednesday’s meeting will focus on a how the OCBA will give member value via a new website designed by OneBoat.
Also to be discussed will be the public restroom project, which the OCBA is handling, at Island Inn Park.
At the Jan. 28 meeting, the contributors elected Stephanie O’Neal and Meredith Rollman to the board. Returning members on the board are Rob Orr, Bob Chestnut and Lynn Murphree. Bob Chestnut was elected president, Rob Orr, vice-president, Stephanie O’Neal, secretary, and Lynn Murphree, treasurer.

The board voted to no longer rent a building in Community Square but will install brochure racks in the Ocracoke Working Watermen’s Exhibit, which is being renovating.

The board agreed to coordinate the following events this year: July 4 activities with fireworks on July 2; Island-Wide Yard Sale (date TBD); Blackbeard’s Pirate Jamboree Oct. 27 & 28; the Holiday Market (Nov. 25) and the Island Celebration (holiday lights competition date TBD).
