The Ocean Pines Association is thrilled to announce its contribution to the planning of the 50th Anniversary Celebration for the community of Ocean Pines. Since being established in 1968, Ocean Pines has become the largest year-round community in Worcester County. Aging has never looked so good. As a premier residential community nestled on Maryland’s Eastern Shore with more than nine miles of waterfront property on 3,000 acres of wooded areas, tens of thousands of folks call Ocean Pines home. Now it’s time to bask in the remarkable growth. It’s only fitting that the association rings in the “Big 5-0” with a big celebration.
The board of directors has approved an allotment of $20,000 for the planning of a series of celebratory events that are set for the year of 2018. In honor of its 50th Anniversary, the Ocean Pines Association will host a Sign Ceremony, Kick-Off Party, Golf Tournament, 50th Anniversary Parade, 5K Run, Family Fun Day, 50th Anniversary Time Capsule Event, Historical Society Update Event, Miniature Golf Tournament and Winter Ball.
The Marketing and Public Relations Department will work closely with a resident-run committee, the 50th Anniversary Committee, to set the stage for the celebration. Director Denise Sawyer and her team will publish a commemorative newsletter that will look back through some of the major milestones in the community’s development from its formative years through today. The official Ocean Pines logo will feature a 50th Anniversary Celebration seal. Merchandise with the anniversary seal will also go on sale in 2018.
It’s the largest birthday celebration in 2018, and the wonderful residents and guests of Ocean Pines are all invited.
