News and Notes…

On Saturday, May 4th, the Jewish Community of the Outer Banks and the Unitarian Universalist Community of the Outer Banks held a joint memorial service for Yom Hashoah, which commemorates the Holocaust in World War II.  About 45 people attended the service. Besides a Reading of Names of those killed during the Holocaust, the JCOB sponsors an essay contest for students in both the Dare and Currituck County high schools and middle schools.  The winners were invited to read their essays. 

In Dare County, seven essays were written, all coming from First Flight High School and Steve Hanf’s Journalism class.  Three awards were given.  The 3rd place award went to Abby Hite, the 2nd place award went to Peyton Dickerson, and Dair McNinch received the 1st place award.  In the photo, from left to right are George Lurie, JCOB Lay leader, Dair McNinch, Peyton Dickerson and Abby Hite.

In Currituck County, there were two essays from Moyock Middle School, nine from JP Knapp Early College School, and one from Currituck County High School.  The winners in the Moyock Middle School were Gabriel Dick (1st) and Avon Foote (2nd).  The high school winners were Justyce Hawley (1st), Madison Hamilton (2nd) and Olivia McDonald (3rd).  In the photo, from left to right are George Lurie, Gabriel Dick, Justyce Hawley, Madison Hamilton and Olivia McDonald.
