I am way behind in putting this post out there, so I am sorry for the delay. On September 12, we finally had the dedication for the nature preserve or "park" as my family calls it. The park was created by family and the NC Coastal Land Trust, in memory of my Aunt Margaret Abbey. It was a wonderful ceremony, and had a record turn out for that type of event. It was wonderful to see how much interest and loyalty that the local communities have put into the park.
Much of the leg work for the ceremony was done by my dad and my Aunt Betty, with the help of many volunteers. So thank you to all of you! It was wonderful, especially to see Papa do the ribbon cutting.
