Editor,

On behalf of the Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum I would like to thank all those who came out to support the museum at our fourth Storm Warriors 5K run/walk Saturday, Nov. 11.

Nearly 150 participants joined us on a very nippy, beautiful November morning. It is gratifying to experience the recognition of the museum.

Our mission is to inspire and support the interpretation and appreciation of the cultural and natural history of Ocean City, Maryland, the Worcester County coastal region, and equally, the historical role performed by the United States Life-Saving Service, and to preserve with subsequent mandate the 1891 structure that once served as the Ocean City Station.

Our current goal is to build an annex that will expand our exhibit area by removing non-exhibit functions, add additional exhibit space and bring the museum into ADA compliance.

We are indebted to our sponsors who stepped up: Whitman Requardt Associates, Greene Turtle, WalMart, Coffin Foundation, Quillin Foundation, Calvin B. Taylor Bank, Humphreys Foundation, American Legion Post 166, Bank of Ocean City, OC Lions Club, Elks Lodge 2645, Bank of Willards, Iseler Demo, George & Lynch, Long Fence, OC Development Corp, Seacrets, Knights of Columbus, Chesapeake Paving, Madison Beach Motel, Hibbard Inshore, Jo/Joe’s Crew, and Weaver Bros. Carry Out. Their understanding of the value of the museum is invaluable.

We are indebted to the media for its efforts to spread the word for us. OC Tri-running did their usual efficient job of organizing the event. They leave no stone unturned. Plak That awards are unique and appreciated. Of course we couldn’t do it without our terrific museum staff and board members.

Ocean City’s magnificent Boardwalk provides the perfect setting for this event. Thanks to Special Events for assisting with our 5K.

Mark your calendars for the second Saturday of November 2018. See you then.

Nancy L. Howard

President

OC Museum Society
