Dear Fellow Members,
Welcome 2017! Looking forward to a new year filled with anticipation for a successful season.
We started out with a nice Awards Dinner that drew 53 members. I think a good time was had by all in attendance.
Congratulations to our Jim Hampton Award winners, bothers, Everett III and Ken Ross! They certainly
earned it! Thanks from us all, for your efforts.
Please try to come out to our next meeting on Feb. 1st at the Green Island Community Center at 730 pm.
I have a couple proposals to make that will be of concern to all club members and I need your feedback.
Mike Simko, the owner of the restaurant where we just enjoyed our dinner, has asked if we'd like to have
a display and Breakfast on a Sunday when the weather warms up. We've been there before and know he puts out a nice breakfast, so I'd be all for it.
The Ocean County Saint Patrick's Day Parade will be on Saturday March 11th, 2017 at noon.
The Parade Committee is also having a Fund Raiser for the Parade to Honor their 1st Grand Marshall
Timothy Ryan, at Hemmingway's Cafe on Saturday Feb. 18th from 3-9pm. They are selling 50/50
tickets for $100 each but only up to 200 tickets are sold, so winner could get $10,000!
Not bad odds. Since I have not heard otherwise I believe we line up on the Ocean side of "N" St.
for the parade get there early if you want to be out early. Also keep in mind the bridge
construction going on, there will be only one lane coming in to Seaside Heights. It will get backed up!
Hope to see you all on the 1st,
