with the following footnote.*
* Do you know where these trees are? The first Ocean City Elementary
School student to present photos of both trees should call
410-520-5403 x5187 for a $25.00 Wal-Mart gift certificate.
It did not take very long for Kaitlyn Ewing to win this contest.
Gregory Purnell, Town Arborist gathered together Ocean City
Beautification Committee Members and they surprised Kaitlyn at school
with balloons, a certificate and the Wal-Mart gift certificate. The
committee was surprised to see it was bad hat and hair day at Ocean
City Elementary School.
The Town of Ocean City had an amazing Arbor Day Celebration and would like to thank everyone who was able to join us.
