Davis Park Community Recreation, Arts & Beautification, Inc. (CRAB) is a 501(c)(3)tax exempt organization formed by community volunteers to attract tax deductible contributions to fund recreational, artistic and beautification efforts in the Davis Park/Ocean Ridge community. CRAB encourages local artists to donate works and participate in its fund-raising and beautification activities.

Working with the Davis Park Association (DPA), CRAB plans to sponsor efforts to beautify the community and enhance recreational facilities, including community gardens, playgrounds and athletic facilities. CRAB's efforts will be funded through tax deductible donations and other fund-raising activities. We appreciate your support!

CRAB was hard at work this week doing some spring cleaning and planting new gardens; see images below.
A great big thank you to Mike and Nikki Dougherty, Guiermo, Neil Robinson and his grandson Joe Kubicki and to Val Letton for putting a fresh coat of paint on the  buoys. 

Thanks also to the Town Parks Department for our annual budget which CRAB puts to good use.
