Your Real Champion®, are – “The Star Spangled Neighbors”!

For more than 100 years, the South Ocean City Improvement Association (SOCIA) has sponsored the Annual July 4th Bike Parade. As membership declined in recent years, the Board considered a dissolution of the organization.


Jack Johnson and his neighbor Karen Fuller came to the rescue. Their love of country and devotion to tradition fueled them to recruit an entire battalion of neighbors and this year’s celebration of the nation’s birthday was even more special this year.

With the help of Mike Dattilo and the City of Ocean City, they established the first Annual 42nd Street Block Party – an all-day event that brought hundreds of members of the community together – reminding us how fortunate we are to live in a country based on democracy.
