We had a free admission day on August 3rd as Hatteras Island was still under a nonresident evacuation order. We almost never cancel the drill so we decided to give our neighbors, who are usually working, an opportunity to attend. We planned to “rescue” all the kids that wished to participate.

Larry Grubbs (Drill Keeper), Mike Finnegan (former Drill Surfman), Ansley & Gavin Thompson (Sons of Glenn Thompson, former Drill Surfman) on the porch of the 1911 Station before the drill. Gavin & Ansley were rescued for the 1st time today.
