Anyone planning on being at OBX during Thanksgiving? Just received this from Linda Molloy at Chicamacomico LSS...

Chicamacomico Annual End-of-Season Open House

Chicamacomico Life Saving Station Historic Site in Rodanthe, North Carolina is pleased to announce its Annual End-of-Season Open House on Saturday, November 27, 2004. This marks the last event to be held at the site this season, so don’t miss any of the proceedings scheduled for this special day. The site opens at 9 a.m. and events are scheduled from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.

The day’s events will feature a variety of entertainment, costumed interpreters, special guests, refreshments, storytelling, tours, and a very special visit from Santa. The Station will be decorated for the holiday season, and the museum gift shop will be offering specials on most items for your holiday shopping needs. Several of the historic structures on site will be open for touring, and artifacts, video presentations and displays will be available.

Entertainment will be provided by John Golden of Wilmington, North Carolina, renowned songwriter and musician, who will also be available to sign his CDs. Costumed interpreters will be found in several locations on the grounds interpreting various aspects of the U.S. Life Saving Service at Chicamacomico. Howard Draper, museum educator from the Museum of the Albemarle in Elizabeth City, will be on site portraying a 19th century Union sailor and will have his sea chest equipped with period artifacts handy for first-person interpretation and animated discussion.

If you are looking for a unique gift for someone during the holidays, this will be an occasion you won’t want to miss, as the Museum Gift Shop will be offering specials all day. Light refreshments and homemade treats will be available during the afternoon hours, prepared and served by Chicamacomico volunteers and docents. View the festive decorations and lights, made possible by private donations, and get into the spirit of the season.

Santa will be making his first visit of the season to Hatteras Island, taking time from his busy schedule to stop at Chicamacomico. Children of all ages are invited to spend a moment with Santa and to offer him your wish list. Bring your camera for pictures with Jolly Ol’ Saint Nick!

Mark this lively day on your calendar and make plans to visit Chicamacomico Life Saving Station historic site to help celebrate this extraordinary time of the year. Admission is free. For more information call 252-987-1552 or email at chicamacomico@earthlink.net for details.

It is alway a nice experience to stop and visit with those folks! I hope they had a successful year! ("ditto" to Stephen's comment concerning decorations) :)

Went flying by there yesterday and didn't even realize they were moving it. Saw a bunch of what I thought were old wood poles or something on the ground. Guess I should of slowed down and taken a look. Gheeze.
