Donate in support of the COB’s Christmas Tree!

We recently learned the story of Ā Meghan Arnott’s severe case of Crohn’s disease and the journey she is on to get healthy once again. Meghan is the daughter of Leanne Arnott, Owner of the Ocean Park and Semiahmoo Cob’s Bread. For the holiday season Cob’s Bread has decorated a Christmas tree for the Festival of Trees in support of BC Children’s Hospital. The tree is housed at Pacific Centre and everyone isĀ encouraged to vote for or make aĀ donation for the tree up until January 5th. You can easilyĀ donate onlineĀ hereĀ and all funds raised go towards theĀ Children’s Hospital’s Excellence in Child Health Fund, providing for the urgent care of BC’s kids. After all, we’re notĀ a Village if we’re not looking out for each other. #oceanparkvillage

The Ocean Park Community Association…Did You Know? #tbt

Beginning on February 3, 1923, in the Ocean Park cottage of Mrs. Woods, a small group of persistent, public-spirited people determined that Ocean Park needed a community organization. From its origins in 1923, the Society met at the homes of various members and there were refreshments served after the meeting had been adjourned. One meeting adjournedĀ at 9:00 p.m. and the party went on until midnight! These meetings must have served the dual purpose of achieving results for the community, and providing opportunities for socializing with friends and neighbours. By November 5, 1925, the Declaration for the ā€˜Ocean Park Societyā€™ was signed by:

  • Robert Hughes, minister, President
  • Thomas Broatch, farmer, 1st Vice-President.
  • Dougal McArthur, carpenter, 2nd Vice-President
  • George Giblin, railroad worker, Secretary
  • Ambrose Cope, carpenter, Treasurer
  • E. L. Hughes, married woman, witness….and it read:
  1. to create a community spirit by fostering an intelligent interest in all community a airs.
  2. to co-operate with similar organizations in matters pertaining to the general welfareā€™
  3. the raising of funds for building a Community Hall. establishing a community centre, and promote a social. educational and recreational interest in the neighborhood.
  4. The operations of the Society are to be carried on in the district surrounding Ocean Park, in the Lower Delta, Province of British Columbia. Dated at Ocean Park, in the Province of British Columbia, this 5th day of November, 1925.ā€

Since the creation of the Ocean Park Community Association, there has been a constant group of dedicated volunteers leading the board of directors and ensuring Ocean Park is well-represented, connected and engaged in local social events. What an amazing accomplishment for such a small community. #tbt #heritage

Proposed Ocean Park Community Orchard – First Rendering

The initial renderings of the proposed Ocean Park Community Orchard have been presented by the group of residents working on the project and are featured below, as well as a listing of proposed fruit and plantĀ varieties. The renderings, illustrated by Ocean Park resident, Michelle Baldwin, detail what the proposal hopes to achieve on the site; a good range of espaliered fruit tree varieties,Ā a bulb planting area to engage the local schools with, as well asĀ seating areas for local residents to gather and enjoy the surroundings. All Ocean Park residents are highly encouraged to come out and learn more about the proposal and provide their input and feedback into the project.
