Letter to the editor

To the Ocean City community,

“Love God, Love Others, Serve at the Beach” is the motto of Ocean City Baptist Church.

Four decades ago, Ocean City Baptist Church opened their doors and hearts on Thanksgiving because nobody should go hungry or be alone for the holiday.

Thousands of turkey dinners later, OCBC is proud to continue this annual tradition and it would not have been possible this year without the generous donations of the following businesses: American Legion Post 166, Bank of Ocean City, Benchmark Property Services, DiCarlo Printing in Salisbury, Elks Lodge #2645, Humphrey’s Foundation Inc., Taylor Bank, the Wednesday Night Ladies’ Bowling League, and, of course, the members and visitors of OCBC.

I believe that sharing a hot turkey meal with all the trimmings serves as a great reminder that no matter how rough times may be, there is still a lot to be thankful for.

I am very thankful to be surrounded by over 100 volunteers who graciously gave their time and energy into making this dinner a success. A few people need to be thanked for their individual efforts and they are Anne Russo, Paul DeHuarte Sr., Robin Derrickson, Judy Baker, and Amy Smith.

All the glory goes to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, as I proudly say that we served 495 meals this year — 113 meals eaten at church, 130 delivered, and 252 carried out. I am privileged to be part of this annual tradition and we look forward to being part of your next Thanksgiving!
