Winter is nearly behind us and yet not even a flake — knock on wood. While it hasn’t been without a few bone-chilling days, we have been very fortunate. We can safely turn our thoughts to gardens and a new spring wardrobe.
This spring we will be without major construction in our neighborhood, though Delmarva Power will continue to upgrade our electrical grid. It is but a mild and necessary disruption compared with last spring’s road work.
We received three requests this year to be chosen our charity of the year: Surfer’s Healing, the Josh and Tommy Memorial Police Scholarship and the Open Door Feeding Ministry. At our February board meeting, the Josh and Tommy Memorial Scholarship and the Open Door Feeding Ministry were selected as the recipients of our fund-raising efforts at our picnics and crab fest.
It’s almost time for our annual Fiesta Park spring clean-up Saturday, March 28, at 10 a.m. Join us as we freshen up the park, pick up trash and do some raking. Lunch will be served to all helpers and city workers who will be hard at work during bulk pickup weekend throughout OC. Please come out and join us — it’s a fun day in the neighborhood.
Our kick-off picnic has been changed to Saturday, June 27, noon to 3 p.m. at Fiesta Park. It is a great time to catch up with neighbors you may not have seen all winter. The culinary offerings will definitely tempt your palate! It’s also a perfect time to renew your CWCA membership.
I am pleased to announce that Bob Higgins of Higgins Crab House has graciously agreed to host our 12th annual charity crab fest on Saturday, Oct. 3 (please note date change), from 2 to 5 p.m. at Higgins North. Tickets will be available soon. Get them early as this all-you-can-eat crab feast is always a sellout.
As the weather permits a casual walk around the neighborhood, please check out Fiesta Park and see what is going on in our new pollinator garden.
Finally, please continue to keep a watchful eye on your neighbors’ homes and our community, and call the Ocean City Police Department if you see any suspicious activity. The OCPD considers every call for service important.
Hope to see you all soon!
