Ocean City Christmas parade a success

Editor,
This is a letter of thanks to all those who helped to make the 30th annual Ocean City Christmas parade such a success.
There are many fine community parades here on the Shore. The officials of those parades I’m sure echo my thanks to all the people who donate their time to make sure these parades run smoothly and provide entertainment and the seasonal spirit to all those observing the parades.
I would like to thank everyone from the Public Works Department who provide us with the judge’s stand, bleachers and the PA system. A special thanks to the Ocean City Police Department for all its work in seeing that the traffic runs smoothly on Coastal Highway while the parade is taking place.
A special thanks goes out to Doug Cymek and his volunteers who coordinate the line-up, start the parade and see that it flows smoothly. This is no easy task, believe me. Thanks to Milton Warren at Delmarva Two-way Radio for the use of his radios during the parade.
Thanks go out to Rick Charles for being our emcee this year. Thanks to Hitman, too, for stopping by.
The Christmas parade is a professionally judged parade. Thank you to the National Judges Association for sending three talented professional judges.
I thank the Gold Coast Mall Merchants Association for its continued support and for providing all the funds for this parade. I thank the community and news media for its interest and involvement. All this blends together into an enjoyable first Saturday in December in the resort when we all enjoy the Ocean City Christmas Parade.
