The proceedings took place on Oct. 21 at 3 p.m. The specific purpose of the event was the unveiling of Parker’s official portrait, which will hang at the Dare County Justice Center. The affair took the form of an official court session with the current senior resident judge, Judge Jerry Tillett, presiding over the proceedings, which Dare County Sheriff Doug Doughtie called to order and closed in the customary manner. Two of Parker’s contemporaries and close friends, attorneys Chris Seawell and Keith Teague, recounted their early days working with Parker, sprinkling their remarks with humorous anecdotes as they traced Parker’s rise through the ranks, where he started as an Assistant Solicitor. Parker also served as a probation officer upon graduation from UNC-Chapel Hill before he attended law school at Wake Forest to begin his journey as a lawyer and a judge. The courtroom was filled to capacity, and the attendees reflected the respect Parker earned over the course of his career. Among those in attendance were elected officials from Dare County, from several municipalities and from other counties in the district. irtually all of the district’s sitting Superior and District Court judges attended, as well as many retired judges. District Attorney Andy Womble and most of his assistant district attorneys were present. Perhaps most telling was the large turnout of practicing and retired trial lawyers, many of whom in comments following the official ceremony recounted the sometimes contentious encounters with Parker when arguing cases in front him. By Russ Lay Some even recounted times Parker “put them in their place.” Yet, their attendance was testimony that those moments were part of the customary interaction between judges and lawyers and did not diminish the respect attorneys, Parker’s peers and others in the legal arenas held for him. James “Jim” Aaron Trotman, a longtime Dare County photographer and the Voice’s dining reviewer. was commissioned to create the portraiture.

Tickets to the annual fundraiser were sold out two days prior to the event, which raised over $30,000 for Dare County Arts Council programming and events. “Emerald Elegance was the definition of teamwork. Our Gala committee did a fantastic job under the guidance of Emerald Elegance Gala Chair Nadine Daniels,” said Dare County Arts Council President Ginny Flowers. “We encouraged our board, volunteers, artists, vendors and guests to dream big and the response was amazing. The success of Emerald Elegance enables Dare County Arts Council to continue developing programming and events for our arts community. Creating art is a common language that is an integral part of the diversity we embrace in Dare County.” The Gala’s silent auction included over 70 items, most of them original works of art, and brought in over $18,000. One of the big-ticket auction items was the head of the event’s centerpiece, a 30-foot long and 60-foot wide dragon, designed and constructed by Nancy Harvey and her Holiday House Events team and sculpted by artist Carol Willett. The artistic décor and silent auction was accompanied by delicious cuisine from Black Pelican Catering and great dancing music by The Finns of Greensboro, NC and Outer Banks band Chez Says.
