It is my honor to serve as the new president of our community associaOon. Our objecOve will be to create and stimulate community interest through business, social and civic activites that are of mutual concern to our community. We encourage you to attend our meetings and express your concerns over areas we can impact. As most of you know, we are governed by the Town of Ocean City, but we have a voice as one of the primary residential areas in town. Your neighbors are the board of directors listed in this newsleSer. Reach out to any of them.
It is hard to believe summer fun is now behind us and fall is here. We hosted three summer picnics, including National Night Out, which offered neighbors an opportunity to gather together to enjoy a summer barbecue and fellowship. Our end-of-summer crab feast for charity was blessed with great weather, a sellout crowd, super crabs, and a donation of $4,400 to the Ocean City Chapter of St. Vincent de Paul. SVDP provides a food pantry and financial assistance for the needy in our community.
While the board of directors does not meet in November or December, CWCA members do gather to spread Christmas cheer throughout the neighborhood. Mark your calendar for Tuesday, Dec. 5, when we gather at the Elks Club and board the tram/bus to sing Christmas carols to our sick or homebound neighbors. We return to the Elks Club to enjoy refreshments and Christmas camaraderie. Plan to join us!
I would like to take a moment to thank Julie Valcourt for her service to our community as our president for the past three years. She was tireless in promoting the spirit of our community and a very welcoming person to all.
In closing, please feel free to reach out to any of our board members. On behalf of the entire board, we extend our best wishes to all our friends and neighbors for a Happy Thanksgiving and a very Merry Christmas.
