Chief Ira Lewis Day - 100 Years of Service

Harkers Island's much-loved and appreciated Ira Lewis will turn 100 on August 2, 2018. To celebrate him and his commitment to our community and our country, we are celebrating his birthday with a gathering of all those who have served in the US Coast Guard and their families.

Carteret County is an official "USCG Community" and especially Down East. A day long event will include parade at 11:00, lunch and a tribute to Ira and the USCG community at 2:00 pm.

If you would like help plan/carry-out this once-in-a-lifetime celebration, please email the
