Their Annual Membership Meeting

MANTEO – The Friends of the Outer Banks History Center invite all to attend their annual membership meeting, Friday, April 4, 5:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Outer Banks History Center in Manteo. The event is free and open to the public and no R.S.V.P. is required.

In addition to the business meeting and election of new board members, Chairman Clark Twiddy will announce upcoming events to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the founding of the Outer Banks History Center. The highlight of the event will be presentation of the 2014 recipient of the Lois W. Bradshaw Volunteer of the Year Award which will have special significance this year due to the recent passing of Mrs. Bradshaw.

The History Center Gallery will remain open until 7:30 p.m. for attendees to see the center’s new exhibit, presented in partnership with the Dare County Arts Council, “An Eye for Art, A Heart for History,” featuring 45 works of art by 24 artists who have expressed their appreciation of our history and heritage in a vast array of artistic modes and media.

Following the Friends annual meeting, the Town of Manteo’s “First Friday” celebrations beckon. Enjoy live music in several outdoor venues. Visit the Dare County Arts Council and many other shops, galleries and restaurants that stay open into the evening, many offering special events and sales. Free refreshments are served at many.
