OCEAN CITY POWER SQUADRON
NAMED AMONG TOP IN THE NATION
The Ocean City Power Squadron has been named among the top four Power Squadrons in the nation as recognized by the Boat US/United States Power Squadrons® Distinguished Squadron Civic Service Award. This is the most significant award honoring the best among the 420 squadrons of USPS.
The presentation was made at the Power Squadrons national meeting in Jacksonville, Florida in late January by National Chief Commander John Alter and Boat US Foundation’s Asst. Director of Boating Safety, Ted Sensenbrenner.
Serving communities along Maryland’s Eastern Shore, its members were very involved in many community outreach programs in 2012 including: Cooperative Charting; maintenance of their adopted park in Ocean Pines; conducting a Flounder Survey for the Department of Natural Resources; and, worked with the local Coast Guard Auxiliary to publish and distribute tide charts for the Ocean City area. The Ocean City Squadron also provided fishing trips to support kids and families in the local “Believe in Tomorrow Program.”
