May 16, 12:01 a.m. until 5 a.m.     -and-

 

May 23, 12:01 a.m. until 5 a.m.

 

The outages are because of work Delmarva Power is doing at its St. Martins switching station. Choptank will do maintenance in the Ocean Pines Substation during both outages.

 BOGGS TOWN MEETING, SATURDAY MAY 18th – 10:00AM

 

 

County Commissioner Judy Boggs has announced that her next Town Meeting will be held on Saturday, May 18, 2013, at 10:00 a.m. at the Ocean Pines Library.  Guest speaker Jim Rapp, Executive Director of Delmarva Low-Impact Tourism Experience, will enlighten us about a variety of new and exciting places to visit and fun activities we can enjoy locally this spring and summer (and take our friends and families).  Jim is an entertaining speaker, and it is suggested that you bring a notebook and pen to jot down information about these great activities and new places.

 

The second guest speaker, Maureen McNeill of Coastal Hospice, will be discussing the expanding services being offered by Coastal Hospice to our area and plans for a local in-patient facility to serve Worcester County residents.

 

As always, Commissioner Boggs will have updates on many current and upcoming local issues.  All are welcome to attend and participate in the discussion. 
For more information, call 410-641-6158
