At the moment, it is snowing outside. Though it is only Feb. 1, I know that June is just around the corner.

That is when the excited and exuberant high school graduates will flock to Ocean City to celebrate that milestone in their lives.

This will be the 30th year that the Ocean City Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Committee has offered the young graduates the Play It Safe project. There’s something for everyone – miniature golf, beach volleyball and dodgeball, go carts, kayaking, pizza-eating contest, tie-dye T-shirts, dancing and much more.

Play It Safe is a truly comprehensive effort thanks to community, businesses, health department and government support.

We feel that by promoting a strong, drug-free message and by offering healthy alternatives that we can have a positive impact on many of the youth visiting Ocean City during that “Senior Week” time.

Currently, our committee is looking for new members and/or volunteers who would enjoy interacting with the appreciative grads who attend our many events.

You can see what we offer and find out more information by visiting our website: playitsafeoceancity.com, or calling me at 410-289-7060.
