The 3rd Annual Fight the Bite 5K Run/Walk is a fundraising event providing information and prevention on Lyme Disease while educating the public about the short and long term effects of an illness that is indemic in Worcester County. The Fight the Bite 5K will begin and end on the boardwalk at the south west end of the boards and Inlet parking lot. Registration, stage, and festivities will be set up adjacent to the south west tram station.
The good health of our families and ourselves is our most valued asset. In our area, a danger to that asset is lurking. Whether there are children on a sports field, a family hiking or camping, your favorite outdoorsman hunting or fishing, yourself or your spouse golfing on one of our county’s beautiful courses, or gardening in your own yard, all of these activities expose us to the most common vector borne disease: Borrelia Burgdorferi, more commonly known as Lyme Disease. The odds are high that you already know someone who has been impacted by tick borne illness. Odds are higher that there are people with this illness that are unaware of its existence.
Did you know that Lyme Disease often comes with additional “co- infections” that makes it even more difficult to diagnose and treat? We are passionate about raising awareness and educating the community on ways to protect themselves from and identify the signs of tick related illness. We are asking for your help. We will do the heavy lifting, starting with a Lyme Disease Awareness 5K, Saturday, May 12, 2018. This event will help raise funds to provide free educational materials to the public as well as billboards and a website address to refer to for current information about diagnosis and treatment. With the proper steps, we all can be safer from this insidious disease.

Traumatic incidents can occur anytime, anywhere, and those who can help until emergency responders arrive, could save lives. As part of Hurricane Season Preparedness and our Annual Town Hall Preparedness Meeting, Ocean City Emergency Services invites residents and visitors to attend “Until Help Arrives.” This free, three-hour Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) workshop will be offered on Wednesday 23 May 2018 beginning at 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm at the Ocean City Town Hall Mayor and Council Chambers located at 301 N. Baltimore Avenue Ocean City, Maryland. Participants will acquire the basic skills needed to provide help after an emergency until help arrives.
“Over the past year tornadoes in Queen Anne’s County and Wicomico County, Maryland and the impact to the southern United States from several hurricanes have pointed out that weather incidents like these can happen anytime or place” Ocean City Emergency Services Director Joe Theobald said. “Being able to help victims prior to the arrival of emergency personnel can help save lives.”
Personnel from the Ocean City Emergency Management, Worcester County Emergency Services, Volunteers with the Ocean City Community Emergency Response Team, the American Red Cross, and other emergency organizations will cover topics that include communicating with 911 operators, positioning the injured, stopping life threatening bleeding, protecting the injured from further harm, and providing emotional support to a victim and family.
“Until Help Arrives” takes place in conjunction with National Hurricane Preparedness Week in the Month May and is being offered at no cost to the public.
Join us for this musical theatre cabaret event. With almost 30 Broadway songs to choose from, each performance is unique based on the selection of that evening’s audience. Upon arrival, each audience member votes for their top three choices from a series of different musical theatre categories, including “The Golden Age,” “Contemporary Musicals,” “Disney on Broadway,” and more. Brown Box curates that night’s show on the spot in this interactive, family-friendly evening, where we perform what YOU consider the best of Broadway.
