I want to thank the Ocean City community for another successful Thanksgiving meal at Ocean City Baptist Church. This year was the 39th year that OCBC has hosted and served a Thanksgiving dinner to the community.

This year we served almost 600 Thanksgiving meals consisting of turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, stuffing, sauerkraut, green beans, rolls and a variety of desserts.

A total of 145 people dined in with us, 276 people came and got a meal to go, and there were 160 meals that our volunteers delivered to shut-ins, first responders, and businesses that had to work on Thanksgiving Day.

Overall it was a wonderful day. What amazed me most was the overwhelming amount of volunteers that come to help serve this meal. There were 126 volunteers from the community that came to help on Thanksgiving Day, while several other volunteers came on Tuesday to set up and help from OCBC.

I especially want to thank Tommy and Judy Baker, Robin Derrickson, Amy Smith, and Chef Paul Dehaurte for all their hard work in leading in this great event.

I would also like to thank the following businesses for their generous donations that made this meal possible. The OC Elks Lodge #2645, the Humphries Foundation, Taylor Bank, the Bank of Ocean City, Benchmark Properties, the Wednesday night Ladies Bowling League at Ocean Lanes and the visitors/members of Ocean City Baptist Church.

It was an amazing day that I was privileged to be a part of. All the glory goes to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
