Summer Concert Series Changes - Letter From Town Administrator, Daisy Ivey

Posted on Tuesday, October 13, 2020

The Town would like to express their sincere gratitude to the Ocean Isle Property Owner Association (OIPOA), past OIPOA Board Members and the countless number of volunteers and business owners who have graciously given of their time and resources over the past twenty years to plan and organize the OIB Summer Concert Series.  As has been stated on numerous occasions, these concerts have become a way of life at Ocean Isle. 


With the construction of the new Town Center Park and the hiring of a full-time Recreation Director, the Town is also excited for the new opportunities that this will afford to our Property Owners and Guests.  Therefore, the Board of Commissioners voted during their October 13, 2020 meeting, to assume responsibility and oversight for the OIB Summer Concert Series, as well as other events that will take place in the new Town Center Park.  The Town wishes to continue providing the same outstanding concerts that we have become accustomed to as well as adding other new exciting programs and events. 


The Mayor and Board of Commissioners would also like to express their deep appreciation to Mrs. Peggy Hughes, who organized the Town’s first concert and has been instrumental throughout these years in planning and securing musicians for these concerts.  Her unwavering dedication goes well beyond the call of duty to her community and as such, the Board voted unanimously to change the name of this event to the “PEGGY HUGHES SUMMER CONCERT SERIES”.  A commemorative plaque will be placed on the Donor Wall at the park symbolizing this honor to Mrs. Peggy as we all fondly call her. 


We would also like to encourage any Residents or Property Owners who would like to volunteer to assist with the Town’s recreational events to contact our Recreation Director, Hayley Burgess at [email protected] to receive a Volunteer Application Form.


Stay tuned for additional information regarding this event.
