The Lost Colony sews and donates over 100 masks to The Outer Banks Hospital

The Lost Colony temporarily re-purposed its costume shop and sewed 112 COVID-19 masks for frontline workers at The Outer Banks Hospital. The masks were sewn with fabric and supplies from costume shop and delivered to the hospital on Tuesday, May 6.

“Personal protection equipment is very important for our first responders and this was a good way to contribute to the effort to defeat COVID-19 while protecting our valued and beloved medical personnel” said Roanoke Historical Association Chairman Kevin Bradley.

Barbara Holton and Joan Brumbach sewed the masks based on an approved pattern. Holton has a long history with the production as she is a former seamstress from The Lost Colony costume shop. She has made over 600 masks for the community this year and is a leader with many other community projects. Brumbach works closely with costuming for Elizabeth R & Company and her work on this project was greatly appreciated. “We are deeply grateful to our treasured volunteers for helping keep our community heroes safe” remarked Katie Stone, acting general manager for RIHA.

“Earlier this spring it was announced that the 2020 season of Paul Green’s The Lost Colony would be canceled due to the pandemic,” stated a RIHA press release. “However, The Roanoke Island Historical Association will continue to find ways to serve its community as we all work towards a full recovery.”
