Letter to the Editor

Editor,

I am writing to thank the community of Ocean City for helping Ocean City Baptist Church (OCBC) continue our yearly tradition of serving an annual Thanksgiving Dinner on Thanksgiving Day. This was the 42nd year that we have hosted this amazing event.

This year we served 568 meals (279 take-outs, 192 deliveries, and 97 in house) to the community.

This year’s meals were cooked by Chef Paul Dehuarte and several other members of OCBC. The meals included turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn, sweet potatoes, a roll, and the choice of a several desserts ranging from pumpkin pie to cheesecake.

We had several volunteers that gave up their time to help prepare the meal, serve the meal, and deliver the meal. These volunteers ranged from 5 years old to 86 years old. They came from all walks of life and from many different churches in the Ocean City community.

Most of all, the volunteers worked hard to make sure everyone was fed and that each person was loved. We would not have been able to do it without them. I especially want to thank Melanie Corbin and Margie Wilson for all their hard work to make sure everybody had a job and things ran smoothly.

I would like to thank the many organizations (The Humphrey’s Grant, Ocean City Elks Lodge #2645, the American Legion, Dicarlos Printing, Benchmark Property Services, Bank of Ocean City, Wednesday Night Ladies Bowling League, and Fager’s Island Restaurant) for their generous donation in making this meal possible.

I also want to thank the members of the Ocean City Baptist Church for all their love and support to make this meal possible every year.

Finally, as someone who was there and got to be a small part of serving the dinner I have to say it was really nice, after the past two years that we have been through, to see people back out again and serving their fellow man.

It was a great reminder of how good our God is and that there is still many good people in this world. We have a lot to be thankful for and all the glory goes to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Dear Editor,

Let me see if I have this correctly ... referring to the loss of income for Worchester County due to the State ending the detention of ICE persons in the County Detention Center. If the State has ended this program, should the decision by the State be followed with a reimbursement to the County for the loss of income? If not, shouldn't the County go ahead and make their own contract with the Feds?

If the liberal legislature in Maryland wishes to make the State a Sanctuary State for illegal aliens, does that also mean Worchester County has to follow Maryland's lead and be a sanctuary county? I should hope not!

Thank you for your time,

Timbur
