Township Engineer Paul Dietrich reports that
about 380,000 cubic yards of sand were lost during our recent nor’easter.
Throughout the beaches about 100-120’ of beach berm was lost. The Army Corp and
the DEP will make a decision in the next few weeks about whether they will fill
beach before leaving the area, according to
Playground Initiative Nets Results! Your survey
As a result...Within days of themeeting, the
rusted chain link fence along the bay was removed, as well as along the sides.
New vinyl fence for the bay side is on order. Certified playground mulch will go
down, swings were repaired, and the sink hole filled. A new handicapped swing
is on order and will be installed on arrival. Karen thanks the Township for
making the playground a "recent priority," but reminds all this "doesn't negate
the need for a complete playground makeover."

Membership Cards – A Milestone
The very first membership card for this library was number 8000. We are now on number 8495 and only have 5 cards left. That means that we have processed almost 500 new members in 6 years. WOW! That’s a real accomplishment. Guess it’s time to get more cards printed!
And by the way, your membership card is even more valuable than you think. Just show it at these participating independent libraries: Absecon, Atlantic City, Avalon, Linwood, Margate, Ocean City and Northfield; and you can join their library for free.
