us here on Hatteras Island, Hurricane Florence is a memory now. Most
businesses and homes had very little damage, if any, and Highway 12 is
open and visitors are returning. We were very fortunate. Even at our
motel where we took the usual overwash, we are back in business and
But for our friends on the Inner Banks as well as in and around Cape Lookout and Cape Fear, it is a different story.
It will be weeks and likely months before those
areas recover, if then. There will be displacement and disruption and
businesses in ruin, as well as lives turned upside down.
We at the Cape Hatteras Motel want to do our part in a small way.
If you are coming to Hatteras Island between now
and November 15, please stop by the motel office and drop of a
non-perishable food item or two. You don’t have to be a guest at our
motel to participate.
Dave and I will find a local food bank in the
affected areas that can receive these items and we will personally
deliver them prior to Thanksgiving. That seems a long way away, but the
fact is, much of the help often disppears along with the headlines and
we don’t want that to happen for these communities.
Please join is as we send these items "To The
Inner Banks from the Outer Banks with love." For your generosity
we'll give you a CapeAttitude® koozie -- a small way of acknowledging
you know what CapeAttitude® is all about.
Thank you so much!
