Becoming a Member

We are always looking for people interested in joining our organization. We invite you to become a member of the Ocracoke Preservation Society or renew your existing membership.  The money we receive from memberships, donations and memorials is used to operate our museum and fund special projects. If you know of anyone who may be interested in joining OPS, please share this membership information with them.

Attending the Fall and Spring Membership Meetings are a membership bonus and should not be missed by any member of the Ocracoke Preservation Society. This year's fall meeting took place on November 8th and began with an Ocracoke Potluck, a friendly and spirited business meeting, presentation of the Old House Award, drawing of many door prizes and choosing the winner of the gorgeous quilt donated by the Ocracoke Needle and Thread organization.  The 2011 Spring Membership Meeting will be held May 10th.  We hope to see you there!
