Denise Sawyer announced she is resigning from her position as director of marketing and public relations with the Ocean Pines Association.

Her last day will be May 17.

“I have truly enjoyed my time with the Association, where I’ve grown personally and professionally,” said Sawyer in a statement. “From greeting local vendors and customers at the ever-growing Ocean Pines Farmers & Artisans Market; spearheading the inaugural National Night Out for the Ocean Pines Police Department; playing a fun game of platform tennis with zero racquetball talent or understanding; making a splash as a participant of the popular hydrocycle spin class at the Sports Core Pool; to ‘rocking out’ at the Yacht Club as I videotaped the infectious live entertainment experience for our social media audience, I have not only captured #PinesPride but I have lived it.”

“Even on my way out, I am singing of Ocean Pines’ praises and marketing its many awe-inspiring features. I can’t help it,” said Sawyer.

“Sure, I am moving on to the next chapter in life. But know that the chapter titled ‘The Pines’ is filled with fond memories,” said Sawyer.

“Thank you for welcoming me into your community and for allowing me to showcase Ocean Pines on the local, state and national level,” said Sawyer.
