And Now A Word From

 

 

The Mayor of Ocean City

 
Congratulations Class of 2014 and Welcome to Ocean City!
 

You have passed a major milestone with your recent graduation from high school now it is time to relax and have some fun and where better to do that than right here in Ocean City, Maryland!

I remember very well the summer of 1967 when I, like you today, visited Ocean City with my friends and classmates to celebrate our graduation. It was a great time to be in Ocean City and although the town may look just a little bit different today it still features the same beach, boardwalk and sense of excitement that we enjoyed back in “The Day”.

Now it is your turn to experience that new found sense of freedom and all of the fun and excitement o f Ocean City. It is a time to reminisce with your friends and to begin to talk about the future as you experience days on the beach and nights out on the boardwalk.

We encourage you to enjoy all of the great alcohol free events offered by the Play It Safe Program while you are here celebrating in Ocean City. This is your week to shine in the Ocean City Sun and we hope that is a safe experience that you will remember for a lifetime!

Sincerely, 

Rick Meehan 

Mayor Town of Ocean City. 

 

Partnership to a Better Community

 

 

  The Maryland, Delaware, and District of Columbia Elks Association With Their Drug Awareness Program Trailer Are One Of Our Many Partners Helping Today's Youth Make Informed, Healthy Choices  While Having Responsible Fun, Without The Use Of Alcohol Or Drugs ,
