Ocean Pines will host a variety of anniversary events throughout the year, including a License Plate Raffle/Auction fundraiser on Saturday, March 24 at 10 a.m. in the Community Center, located at 235 Ocean Parkway.
The Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration, with the assistance of the Ocean Pines Association, will roll out an official Ocean Pines, Maryland license plate. Only 50 license plates will be available at the March 24 fundraiser. The first ten will go to the highest bidders and the others will be raffled out. Raffle tickets are $50 each and are available for purchase at Ocean Pines Administration Building, which is open Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Raffle winners DO NOT have to attend the March 24 event to redeem their winnings.
“Already, the license plates are highly sought-after and are sure to attract a great deal of attention for Ocean Pines,” said Sawyer. “I am eager to see the excitement build.”
The plate will be mailed to the home owner once the Motor Vehicle Administration form is completed and approved by Ocean Pines Association.
¨ Your vehicle must be registered in the State of Maryland
¨ Your application must be approved by Ocean Pines Association
¨ Home owner’s account must be in good standing with the Association
¨ Tenants must display a rental lease agreement and their landlord’s account must be in good standing with the Association
IMPORTANT NOTE: The Association will not handle or process tags PN51 and up. The Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration will handle them. But it’s important to note that the Association has to sign off on every application. The good-standing home owners or tenants (with proof of a lease agreement and good-standing landlord) who are seeking a PN51 and up plate will have to visit the Administration Building for the Membership Coordinator to sign off on their application and then take it or mail it to the MVA.
“The celebratory license plate demonstrates pride that crescendos across the waterways and roadways of Ocean Pines,” said Ocean Pines Marketing and Public Relations Director Denise Sawyer. “Neighbors helping neighbors is what this community is all about, which is why proceeds from the sale of the anniversary license plate will fund the first-ever National Night Out in Ocean Pines.”
The Police Department will host its very own National Night Out, a community-building event that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie, on Tuesday, Aug. 7 from 5 to 7 p.m. at White Horse Park in Ocean Pines.
Music, food and a moon bounce will be available for the public to enjoy. Marked police vehicles will be on display and officers will meet and greet the public.
“Agencies across Delmarva take part in National Night Out each year and now Ocean Pines joins the list,” said Sawyer. “Proceeds from a license plate raffle/auction that is scheduled for Saturday, March 24 will help to cover the cost of the National Night Out event.”
