In Memoriam...
ANN BRENT

SPOTLIGHT

Our dear Ms. Ann hosted her last


Valentines Dance event on February
14, of this year. She passed away
peacefully on March 21, 2015 at the
young age of 83. Ann was a dedicated
employee, friend, and a ball full of
energy! She worked at Ocean City
Recreation Parks as our Senior
Coordinator for 17 years. Ms. Ann was
responsible for all of OCRPs senior
programming, including, bingo, fine arts,
ceramics, water aerobics, yoga, one-day events, holiday
events, picnics, trips, the bowling league and, of course,
line dancing. She will perhaps most be remembered for
the energy she brought to every event and performance.
Whether it be for her memorable line dancing solos, the
care with which she selected the music and decorations for
each holiday event, or simply the ears she lent to so many,
Ms. Ann will not soon be forgotten. Many have said it is the
end of an area. She will be greatly missed.

Introducing...
Ocean City Recreation and Parks is happy
to announce changes and additions to our
outstanding staff
Cody Davis, New Facility Monitor
We are happy to welcome Cody
Davis, a 2014 graduate of Stephen

area kids. Cody is always willing to lend a helping hand!

REBA FELTY
Reba Ann Felty, former President of
the Ocean City Recreation Boosters,
passed away on June 12, 2015. Reba
donated many hours of her time to
leading a group of volunteers who
work tirelessly to ensure that area
children are able to enjoy the recreation

OCRP. Reba was a member of the
Boosters for more than 15 years. For
13 of those years, she led the efforts of
the organization as President. In 2008, Reba was honored
as Volunteer of The Year. Her efforts were tremendous
throughout her time with us. She was a leader but also very
hands-on with fundraising efforts, including assistance with
Springfest, Sunfest, Winterfest, Sunset Park Party Nights
and other holiday functions and special events. Reba told us
that she thoroughly enjoyed the work that she did with the
Boosters, as well as the people she worked with.

OCEAN CITY BEAUTIFICATION COMMITTEE

The Town of Ocean City Beautification Committee works in partnership with the
Department of Recreation and Parks to bring the beauty of trees and color to our
barrier island town. The volunteer members are appointed and commissioned by the
Mayor and City Council to help determine the needs of the town for the planting,
maintenance, and protection of all trees on the streets and in the parks of Ocean
City. The members provide assistance by making referrals for the enforcement of
the landscape code. They also engage in a calendar year full of special events and
activities.
Each spring the Ocean City Beautification Committee, along with second grade
students from Ocean City Elementary School, join to produce an Arbor Day
celebration for the town, at Northside Park. During the festivities, the Mayor is presented with the National Arbor Day
Foundations Tree City USA Award and the MD P.L.A.N.T. Award, which is administered by the Maryland Community Forest
Committee. Each summer the committee tours the town to review nominated properties for Beauty Spots Awards, which the
Mayor and City Council present in September at a City Council meeting. Finally, each December, the committee beautifully
decorates City Hall for the holidays.
In January 2015, a long desired project of the Beautification Committee came to fruition with the completion of the aesthetically
pleasing water feature at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center. The funds for it were raised from donations to the lovely
metal sculpture, Reflections of Life, inside the convention center. For those interested in honoring or remembering a loved one or
friend, there are still leaves available on the Reflections of Life tree.
Donna Greenwood serves as the Chair of the committee and the members are Jennifer Albright, Eleanor Curcio, Steve Genua,
Donna Reid, Nancy Smith, and Toni Wagner. Please visit the committee on the web at www.oceancitymd.gov/bc/ or email them
at ocbeautification@hotmail.com.
