8th Annual Operations SEAs the Day (OSTD) Warrior Family Beach Week, scheduled for every September, will be delayed until 2021.
The OSTD Board thanks the organizations you represent & all your members for their unwavering support for the Warrior Families that have been (& will be) served by the Bethany Area OSTD event. We look forward to seeing all of you again in 2021 when the OSTD Warrior Family Beach Week can restart in a safe health environment.
Operation SEAs The Day has announced the 8th Warrior Beach Week will not be held in 2020. Becky Johns, President, stated “This event is important to Bethany Beach and surrounding areas, and we are extremely disappointed to make this decision. However, the impact of COVID-19 on the health and well-being of our guest families as well as our volunteers and the community outweigh holding this event this year.”
Warrior Beach Week provides military veterans a week of rest and relaxation in the Bethany Beach area to enjoy the sun, sand, and recognition of our community. Our community’s tremendous support has changed lives and made this a highly desirable event for veterans and their families. Recognizing that warriors and their families still need our help, we respectfully suggest contributions that would be made to OSTD this year, be directed to veteran organizations and/or those being impacted by the pandemic.
While disappointing, all who support Operation SEAs The Day should be proud of the significant positive impact the Bethany community has made on our honored guests in past years. In our 7 prior events, we have hosted over 1,000 individuals, held four weddings and, with your generosity, positively impacted the lives of our guests simply by the “Thank You” you have extended. We look forward to again recognizing, cheering, and celebrating September 7-12, 2021.
