To protect and promote the best interests of the property owners and residents of the City of Ocean City New Jersey. To encourage civic interest by all its citizens. To support the improvement of the general welfare, health, comfort, safety and environment of the whole island.
with our sympathy . . .
Teresa Coggshall passed away Tuesday, August 30th.
She had been an active OCCA member, serving as Recording Secretary and Chairperson of the Environmental & Beautification Committee for several years.
Due to failing health she had become inactive during the past few years.
Teresa was one of that generation of OCCA volunteers who stepped up about ten years ago when we were known as the “Ocean City 16-34 Community Association.”
She applied her passion for caring about Ocean City’s environment to initiate, organize and lead us to clean up various areas that had been neglected: Corson’s Inlet, 52nd St. Causeway, Crook Horn Creek wetlands trail, 14th – 23rd St. “dunes’ trash sweep,” in addition to revitalizing the City’s “Adopt-a-Beach” program.
She was the one who made the calls which resulted in the support and cooperation of our Public Works and Police Depts.
She was part of a team that ignored the reasons why something could not be done and figured out a way to get it done.
Those who knew her will miss her.
Please join us in welcoming a new slate of Directors for the OCCA Board.
Please review their profiles online within the Board of Directors webpage.
Please join the Ocean City Community Association for planning community activities for 2016 and 2017.
Our goals are to truly work together to build a community spirit between all year round, owners and visitors to Ocean City.
Our next meeting is August 25th at 5 pm in the Ocean City Library, Children’s Activity Room. Please join us, tell a friend or bring a neighbor!
Going forward we will endeavor to have a brief speaker from Ocean City’s fabulous community and a brief meeting to use to plan fun community activities for ALL!
