Project Graduation Gets a Boost

It’s all about relaxation and
family fun at Appel Farm’s
Arts and Music Festival.
{ BY RYAN DINGER }
O n Saturday, June 2nd, the Appel
Farm Arts and Music Festival
returns to the festival grounds on
Shirley Road in Elmer, NJ. Now in its
23rd year, the annual arts and music festi-
val has become southern New Jersey ’s
own version of Woodstock, though on a
miniature scale (about 5,000 people
attend each year).
“We’ve had people who have come year
after year,” said Dee Billia, Appel Farm’s
With commencement only a few weeks away, Vineland
High School's Project Graduation received a big boost
recently when the Vineland Education Association pre-
sented a check for $5,000 to help pay for the event,
according to Dr. Thomas McCann, VHS South principal.
Project Graduation is a free all-night drug and alco-
hol-free party for seniors to celebrate their high school
graduation. The location for this celebration is always a
secret known only to a few of the organizers and never
revealed to the students until their actual arrival at the
site Threatened by state budget cuts, a variety of events
and broad support from the community have been keep-
ing Project Graduation fully funded for the past several
years. The cost of the event is about $60,000 each year,
including transportation.
"This is a generous, wonderful gesture," said Dr.
McCann. "Getting all the funds we need for this event
has been an especially big challenge this year. But it's
not surprising that our teachers would step forward and
help with an event dedicated to keeping our seniors safe
on one of the most important nights of their lives."
Dr. McCann said Project Graduation is close to its
fund-raising goal for the year, "but we could always use
additional donations." For more information, contact his
office at 856-794-6800, ext. 2501.

Hosting

Charlotte

An exchange student teaches as well as learns.

  • I f you ever have an opportunity to host an exchange student in your home, jump at the chance. That’s what our family did a

couple of months ago when our daughter’s German teacher was looking for host families. And we’re so glad we did. The past two weeks having Charlotte as part of our family have been an enjoyable and enriching experience for everyone. You would think there might be a lan- guage barrier, but Charlotte has been learning

English for much longer than the three years

our daughter has been taking German. Also, it has forced our kids to slow down and enunci- ate when they talk to her, so I have to say that communication is better all around. It was a break from the fast teen talk, although I’m sure it’s about to return. We get to see our children as hosts, ambassadors even, and this naturally puts them on their best behavior. What parent doesn’t enjoy that? Maybe best of all, we get to see our little corner of the world through the eyes of some- one who hasn’t seen any of it before. Talking to Charlotte her first week here (a full two weeks before Memorial Day), she told me that she was “struck” (we searched for that word) at all the American flags displayed on houses, in classrooms, etc. I’ve thought that

since 9-11, our country has turned less patriot-

ic, but it seems compared to other countries, we are still very much a proud nation.

New York was first on the list of must-see places for this group of German students and hosting Charlotte has made us realize that we take for granted—and do not visit often enough—the famous landmarks nearby.

In other discussions, we compared lifestyles and hopefully our kids have learned

how fortunate, even spoiled, they are—and we are—as a nation. I was reminded how Americans are all about excess—cars, living space, technology—compared to even other affluent societies. Charlotte described her house as a row- house, with very little “garden” space, com- pared to what we have on our quarter acre. While Charlotte was here, our daughter shared her bedroom, which worked out well despite the fact that our twin boys seem to never have enough space in the larger bed- room they share. My daughter, who is about to earn a dri- ver’s license, has watched friends buy cars or have one bestowed upon them. We learned that Charlotte cannot legally obtain a license until she’s a full year older than New Jersey’s youngest drivers. Even then, she likely will not do so, since a driver’s license in Germany is very costly; most families get by sharing a car and relying more on buses and trains. Our daughter learned about the German culture and travel tips that will be helpful when she takes her exchange trip next month. She will stay with a student who lives about an hour away from Charlotte, but they are already making plans to get together in Germany. If you have high-schoolers and are inter-

ested in hosting a student from another country, the Rotary Club of Vineland has the sign-up information you’ll need. Contact Bob and Carol Saghirian, the Rotary District 7640 Youth Exchange Chairs, via e-mail at RYE7640@aol.com or by phone at 856-228-1717. I

In Our Schools

300 Students Participate in 34th Durand Run

| the grapevine { } 3.5% 3.5% SALES TAX SALES TAX www.recumminesinc.com w w w.

Overcast skies and a steady threat of rain did little to dampen the spirits of the 300 students at Durand Elementary school who participated recently in the school's 34nd annual "Durand Run," said Dan Greco, the school's principal. With a large crowd of parents, family members and staff cheering and applauding, Jayden Hoff, a fourth grader, was the overall winner, finishing first of all students completing the 2.5-mile race. The first female finisher, 12th over- all, was Sonialys Baddillo, a fifth grader. Hoff was top third grade finisher, and 4th overall in 2011. His brother Gage, a first grader, is continuing the family suc- cess in the event, taking one of the top three spots in his division. The top three finishers, by grade level: Grade 5–Yury Polishchuk, Darius Purnell

and Sebastian Cortez-Lopez; Grade 4–Hoff, Charles Kent, and Nicholas Digh; Grade 3–Victor Rodriguez, Joshua Colon, and Zachariah Heredia; Grade 2–Jalen West, Marshon Ausby, and Donald Thomas. Students in grades two through five who met a qualifying mark in gym class

competed in the event. To encourage younger children to develop a fitness habit,

there was also a mini race for first grade students prior to the main event.

To ensure the safety of the participants, Vineland Police diverted traffic along

the Forest Grove Road route. Teachers were present throughout the course to

assist, and also to record the order of finish and ensure that students followed proper cool-down procedures and were received ample water.

Coordinating the event was Jim Appleby, Durand's physical education teacher.

"Once again, it was a safe and fun activity, and I was very proud of the way all of our students behaved," said Appleby during an afternoon awards ceremony. “It was an enjoyable activity for everyone." Greco said the Durand Run is just one element of the school's efforts to cope with the growing threat of childhood obesity. "This year we received a grant to implement the FFVP (fresh fruit and vegeta- bles program) where students twice a week are given the opportunity to sample fresh produce," said Greco. "Of course this program ties in perfectly with the Durand Run and our healthy choices program." The Durand Run was founded by retired Durand principal William Maenner as a way to help students improve in the area of physical fitness. Beginning with a makeshift 500-meter track on the school playground, the staff

and students enthusiastically embraced the program. Each year, the Durand Fitness Program has culminated in the 3,000-meter event.

Rossi School Counselor Wins Starfish Award

{ } the grapevine | LEAFY GREEN COUPON FREE FERTILIZATION APPLICATION With Full Year Contract *New

Andrea Massaro, a counselor at Rossi Intermediate School, was the surprise recipient on Wednesday of the Vineland Public Schools’ Starfish award, present-

ed annually to recognize an outstanding counselor from within the Vineland fam-

ily of counselors. Also honored was the “Affective” or “A Team” of counselors and student sup- port employees at Petway Elementary School: Fay Romanick, Jill Newcomb, and Leslie Smith. The awards were the highlight of the annual staff development workshop for the district's counselors, held at the Vineland Public Schools administration building. The ceremony was hosted by Dr. Mary Gruccio, Interim Superintendent of Schools, and Dr. Shelley Schneider, Interim Assistant Superintendent/ Administration. "You are truly the unsung heroes in our school district," said Dr. Schneider. "You help not only our students, but also our staff, and you do it quietly and every day. It is an inspiration and honor for me to have worked with you the past few months." “The Starfish Award,” said Dr. Gruccio, “is given each year to the counselor who exemplifies and embodies everything we hope our counselors do. Someone who reaches beyond the scope of the school building out into the community, who is vigorous in their efforts on behalf of children." Mrs. Tammy Monahan, principal of Rossi, spoke highly of Massaro. "Andrea is the sweetest, kindest person," she said. "She’s always professional. She’s so dedicated to the school and will always do her best with any task that needs to be done. She does things from her heart, not because she has to. Andrea goes above and beyond her duties for both the students and staff, and she just makes Rossi a better place to be. She participates in many after-school activities; she never says no to anything, and anything I ask her to do, she makes it work." Massaro was rendered nearly speechless after accepting her award. "This is so sweet," she said. "I work with good people. I was brought up the right way I guess. I speak from my heart and try to do my best everyday. I work with an incredible group and was kind of raised by them, so I feel this is for all of us." The Starfish award refers to the allegory of a young person picking a starfish from among millions on the beach and returning it to the sea–thereby making a difference at least to the one saved. Massaro was chosen from a group of nearly a dozen nominees for the award from principals, assistant principals, guidance counselors, and social workers. The winner is selected by a committee that includes administrators from each grade level in the schools and district office administrators. Those nominated for the Starfish award were expected to exemplify the follow- ing traits: a love of children, dedication to the profession of counseling, tireless work ethic on behalf of children, creativity, responsiveness to children’s needs above and beyond the call of duty, willingness to try new ideas and strategies,

continuous interest in professional development, and a cooperative style of inter-

action.

director of Public Relations and Marketing, “and a lot of them will say that the festival has kind of a ‘woodstocky ’ feel. I wouldn’t disagree with that. We’re clear- ly not on that same level. But it is part of what the festival is about. The vibe is relaxed and comfortable. That ’s what we aim for, and I think we achieve it.” The major difference between Appel Farm’s Festival and Woodstock is Appel Farm’s aim for a family-friendly environ- ment. There is a departure from the free love, drug culture that is so identi- fied with Woodstock. Booking musical acts that can be enjoyed by multigenerational crowds is one way that Appel Farm accomplishes the family-friendly feel. Headlining this year ’s festival will be the Grammy Award-winning Tedeschi Trucks Band from Jacksonville, Florida. “Tedeschi Trucks Band has a lot of buzz around them right now,” said Sean Timmons, art direc- tor at Appel Farm. “They ’re an 11-piece whose sound is largely blues, but they ’ve got ele- ments of soul, funk and jazz also. And we keep hearing from peo - ple who are excited to see them.” Other acts on the bill include Dawes, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Jukebox The Ghost, Rodney Crowell, Cheryl Wheeler, and Sara Watkins of Nickel Creek. The lineup also includes two local acts in Quincy Mumford & The Reason Why, who hail from Asbury Park, and Mason Porter, a Delaware County-based roots rock band. There is also a band on the bill by the name of Brother Josephus And The Love Revival Revolution Orchestra. Their name alone helps them to stand out from the crowd, but, according to Timmons, their performance should also be a big hit among the attendees. “Every year, when we’re putting the lineup together, I’m always looking for a band to add a little bit of spice to the show, and this year they are it,” said Timmons. “They ’ve got a great party feel to their show. There is a New Orleans, Mardi Gras-like feel when they ’re playing. They ’ll play for an hour, but people will feel like only 10 minutes have gone by— they ’re going to want more.” Apart from the music, there is also the craft fair, which will feature about 50 local craft artists displaying their own work; food, wine and beer for sale ( guests will

be allowed to bring their own food as well), with the beer being provided by local brewery Flying Fish, and the wine being provided by local winery Auburn Roads; and, of course, the Children’s Village, which has been providing enter- tainment for children in attendance for a number of years. “The Children’s Village features a pup - pet theater, a storyteller, and a variety act with a gentleman who does some magic, juggling, and some comedy,” said

Timmons. “We also have a lot of arts and craft activities for children. There’s a lot to keep the kids occupied and give them something else to do during the day. It ’s usually a pretty busy place.” All of these elements combine for a nine-hour day filled with entertainment for the whole family, no matter their taste. Tickets are $45 for adults and $40 for seniors and students who buy them before June 1; and $50 for adults and $45 for sen- iors and students at the gate. Tickets for children ages 3 to 12 are just $5, while children ages two and younger receive free admission. The festival starts at 11:30 a.m and goes until 8:30 p.m. For tickets or more information, call 1- 800-394-1211, 1-800-852-7899 or dial 711.

Millville, Vineland’s neighbor to the south, predates Charles

K. Landis’ establishment by more than a full century.

W ith all the festivities cen-

tered on Vineland last

year for the sesquicenten- nial celebration, it ’s easy

to over look the longevity of our neigh-

boring communities. When it comes to

Cumber land County ’s extended family,

Vineland has been the young s ibling of

the group. In fact, it s fi rst three year s

were spent as part of Millville Township,

a municipality with a legacy dating back

to the 1700s.

William McMahon, author of South

Jer sey Towns, report s that in 1755, before

the development of our neighboring city,

there exi sted a log cabin settlement in

what i s now Millville. Online sources report the pos s ible exi stence of a sawmill in the Leamings Mill vicinity as early as 1720, along with one public road, a boat landing and a “br idge -like st ructure.” The idea of turning the area into a proper town with thriving indust ries and res i- dences was still a few decades away. The seeds for the new municipality were sown when Joseph Buck was di s - charged f rom the Continental Army shortly after the 1781 sur render at Yorktown. Buck, whose military rank has various ly been att r ibuted as captain, colonel and major by hi storical sources, decided to settle in Cumberland County and, according to McMahon, became ent renched in area politics, even serving as sher iff f rom 1787 to 1790. It was in Buck’s final year as sher iff that two ent repreneur s, Henry Drinker and Joseph Smith, became involved in establi shing a bus ines s in the area. Purchas ing 19,563 acres (online sources di sagree, claiming the acqui s ition ranged f rom 20,000 to 24,000 acres ) in the sec- tion known as Union Mill Tract, Dr inker and Smith built (some say enlarged) a dam to power the lumber mill s that were developing along the Maurice River as par t of thei r newly formed Union Estates Company. Union Lake was created in the proces s. As Dr inker and Smith’s Union Company began to flouri sh, Buck began to evaluate the changes over taking the location that once housed the log cabin settlement. By 1795, in the fashion of Char les K . Landi s, he envi s ioned the area as a city compr i sed of mill s lining the

Maurice River with manor houses filling what would be the uptown region,

According to the Cumberland County website, Buck acquired the mill belonging to the Union Company as well as a con- siderable amount of land in the vicinity in

1795. Delving into the real estate trade, he bought up acres of land, dividing the

property into lots and selling them to those interested in settling in the area. Buck built his own home on the northeast corner of Main and High streets. McMahon report s that some of the earliest proper ty owner s of the soon-to - be Millville included James Sweatman, Nathan Leake, Jeremiah St ratton, Ezekiel

Foster, David Nicholas, Jeremiah Seeley and James Ware. In the final decade of the 19th century, Millville, as Buck had christened the ter- ritory, faced a promising future in the burgeoning glass industry of the area. As the city ’s website points out, the abun- dance of fine white-grained silica sand, some of the finest in the world according to online sources, made it a perfect loca- tion for just such a business. Additionally, the wooded area provided enough trees for the lumber necessary to fuel the mills. In it s original incarnation, Millville was a township and was incorporated as such on February 24, 1801. It had been formed f rom portions of Fai rfield Township, but was still in the early stages of it s development. It has been reported that, at the time of Buck’s death in 1803, there were only 20 homes in the fledg- ling municipality. James Lee, an I r i sh immigrant who had been living in Port Elizabeth, decid- ed to cont ribut e to the development of Millville. In 1806, he establi shed a win- dow-glas s factory on the s ite of the future Amer ican Legion Hall and al so erected a dam to provide power for a new paper mill that soon folded. Lee’s glas s factory, along with another run by Baltimorean Frank Schetter, was eventu- ally purchased by the Whitall Tatum Company. Millville’s identity as a glassworks city established the direction it would follow for over a century. Along with its industry came residents whose numbers, a meager several hundred in the 1820s, would grow significantly to 7,600 by 1880. I

I News in Brief

Continued from page 13

The 2012 budget totals $118,591,828, down more than $11 million from last year ’s budget, said Freeholder Deputy Director Tom Sheppard, a member of the county finance committee. County Freeholders are holding the line on the county budget by using $7,500,762 of the county ’s $8.5 million in surplus to fill the void created by a decline in income by eroding ratables. Contrary to last year ’s tax increase from 86.48 cents to 91.28 cents on every $100 of assessed value, this year the Freeholders are anticipating what could be up to a 1 cent reduction in the tax rate, when the tax board strikes the new rate in August. The current tax rate of 91.28 cents per every $100 of assessed value is expected to drop to about 89.58 cents in August 2012. The county expects to collect $82,938,491 in taxes, plus have an income of $28,152,575 and together with the $7,500,762 from surplus will generate the budget total of $118,591,828. The 2012 budget also shows a reduc- tion of county employees, from 960 full time employees, to just 762. The sale of the manor was a large part of the reduc- tion in the county ’s payroll. Additionally, the sale of the manor will generate $14 million dollars, and that will help replen- ish the county ’s surplus.

Millville Savings Ranked One

of the Nationʼs Top Banks

Millville Savings and Loan, Millville, New Jersey has been recognized as a 5- Star Superior bank by the nation’s leading bank rating and research firm, Bauerfinancial, Inc. A 5- Star rating indi- cates that Millville Savings and Loan is one of the strongest banks in the nation. Among other factors, to earn this rating Millville Savings and Loan must not only report impressive capital levels, but also an enviable loan portfolio with negligible levels of delinquent loans. The fact that Millville Savings and Loan has earned this 5- Star Superior rating for the last 95 con- secutive quarters puts it in an even more elite group of “Sustained Superiority Banks.” Only 1% of the nation’s banks can claim this distinction. Millville Savings and Loan first opened its doors in 1941. It operates through two offices in Millville and can also be found on the internet at www.millvillesavings.com.

Par tnership to Advance

Cultural Ar ts

The Boys & Girls Club of Vineland, a youth development organization, has announced it has been selected to receive a $2,000 grant as part of the inaugural Restaurant Community Grant Program

from the Darden Foundation, the charita- ble arm of Darden Restaurants Inc. The Restaurant Community Grant Program is a local grants program intended to help support nonprofit organizations in the hundreds of communities Darden and its restaurant brands serve. The donation will enable the Club to continue its Cultural Dance program to which involves a num- ber of youth in modern, hip hop, Latin, African and Zumba dance styles. Restaurants within the Darden family— Red Lobster, Olive Garden, LongHorn Steakhouse, The Capital Grille, Bahama Breeze and Seasons 52—are helping to award more than $1.7 million in local

grants to nearly 900 exceptional nonprofit organizations nationwide. “We truly appreciate this grant award since it helps us continue to provide cul- tural and educational programming to the children we serve,” said Club Director Chris Volker. “We are trying to help tackle the childhood obesity problem and we know the Darden grant will definitely make an impact in this area.” For more information about the Darden Foundation, visit http://www.dar- den.com/ commitment/community.asp.

Sabater Students Help Alex’s Lemonade Stand

Have a Safe and Happy Memorial Day Weekend! - - From Joe’s Butcher Shop From Joe’s

Fourth graders at Sabater Elementary School are participating in a fundraising project for Alex's Lemonade Stand, which raises money for childhood cancer research, accord- ing to Brooke Smith, a grade four teacher. The students prepared water bottles with lemonade packets attached for sale school-wide. The idea came, in part, from stu- dents reading a book by the parents of

Alexandra Scott. Scott passed away in August 2004, at the age of 8, knowing

that, with the help of others, she had raised more than $1 million to help find a cure for the disease that took her life.

Brooke Smith and some of her students fill a crate with water bottles and lemonade packets they prepared.

Food Run

To a Jersey Shore resident, there’s nothing like a jaunt

inland on a spring day for food specialties.

Muzzarelli’s Farm Market (pictured) is open for the season and offers a wide array of fresh fruits and vegetables throughout the summer. Ryan Ricci (right) shows off a portion of Muzzarelli’s offerings.

  • M emorial Day weekend. No three words in the English language strike such fear and dread at their mere

mention for residents of the Jersey Shore. It means that our idyllic month of May is about to come to a close. Also, it indicates that we are now staring straight down the barrel of a three-month roller coaster ride, one that will not cease until a distant Labor Day finale. Don’t get me wrong, I fully understand the nature of our seasonal, service economy. We shore dwellers do desperately need the infusion of cash that our dear tourist friends (including The Grapevine readers who make the short drive for day trips and week- end jaunts to coastal destinations from Cape May to Atlantic City and shore points further north) graciously deliver without fail each and every year. But it does come at a price, and a steep one, for those like me who choose to live island life year-round. Be it noise, pollution, massive traffic jams,

incredibly rude attitudes, occasional crime—I personally interrupted a multi-city car break- in spree last August—or well, I’ll stop now. We think you probably get the point with- out belaboring.

Since one of the unintended consequences of “the season” remains a steep jacking of costs, especially food-related ones, down the shore, we regularly hike 30 or so miles west in search of kitchen staples at a bargain. Thus, early in the morn of Thursday, May 24, I packed up my vehicle and headed out in search of provisions for the long weekend ahead. My first stop was outside Vineland, on Route 49 in Maurice River Township. At a tiny trailer park just beyond the Union Road intersection, I purchased four just-picked quarts of gorgeous strawberries. Grown on the other side of the county in Rosenhayn, these beauties were no doubt still on the vine as the sun came up on this unsea- sonably hot day. From their perch on my back seat they provided a delightful aroma that permeated the air as I continued my westward journey. Next up, one of my very favorite farm stands, Santaniello’s on East Oak Road in Buena Vista. Here, in a tiny, crowded building only slightly larger than the average shed, I found romaine, red and green leaf lettuces, spinach, arugula and a trio of greens—collard, turnip

and mustard. Rather than having the attendant make

change for a $20, I took the remainder in beets—red and the rarer golden variety—as well as tiny, potent white onions.

  • I probably shouldn’t even tell you this, but

in a few more weeks, Santaniello’s will have another hard-to-find foodstuff—wild black raspberries—albeit in very limited quantities.

The best part? Santaniello’s is fully com-

mitted to organic farm techniques. ’Nuff said.

  • I would normally continue down Oak

Road and shop both Simone Orchards and Muzzarelli’s Farm Market, but on this day the latter was not yet open (though they’ve since opened for the season) and the former appeared to be just recently so. No worries, we’ll be seeing them plenty in months to come. Having satisfied my fruit and veggie requirements, meats were now a pressing concern. This meant a fast stop at Marcacci’s Butcher Shop, conveniently located only a couple miles ahead. Once there, 2 ½ pounds each of beef short ribs and pork ribs were obtained, plus over two pounds of boneless chicken strips. All for less than 20 bucks. (As an aside, we were thrilled earlier this winter to discover that

ownership here has opened a new location closer to my home, on Ventnor Avenue in that Absecon Island town.) Parched from my long ride, I knew exactly where to head for summery liquid refresh- ment. That would be Landis Avenue’s oasis of refinement and culinary culture, The Sweet Life Bakery. Perhaps unknown to most, owner Stephen

Wilson has devised a formula for blueberry lemonade that is nothing short of magical. (Yes, we know he used to write for this publi- cation. So what?) Should you doubt me I would suggest that you go there, purchase and consume this beverage.

Right now. Although Steven and wife/partner Jill weren’t present on this morning, we thor- oughly enjoyed watching their trio of edgy female employees—one sporting a Sinead O’Connor-style shaved head—interact with customers, myself and otherwise. Pressed for time, we didn’t get to several other terrific vendors on this day. Folks like Luciano’s FreshMarket, Jim Main’s Bakery, Malench’s Farm Market and Jersey Jerry’s, if only for their sublime roast beef special sandwiches. But we’ll really know what season we’re in the next time in town, as lunch will be at ven- erable Stewart’s Root Beer on South Delsea Drive. Here comes summer, ready or not. I

On Monday June 4, “Sex and the Single Conch”:

Whelks (or conchs, Busycotypus canaliculatus) are at the center of an exploding fishery. As southern New England lobsters decline, fish- ermen are catching more whelks, and using more horseshoe crabs for bait. In order to help manage this fishery, we are trying to answer some simple questions: How fast do they grow? When do they become sexually mature? And, do they change sex? Speaker will be Dr. Bradley Stevens , who is a Professor and Distinguished Research Scientist at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. Prior to arriving on the east- ern shore, he studied king crabs in Kodiak, Alaska for 22 years.

The music is followed by the NJ

Championship Oyster Shucking contest at

p.m. Whether you’re an amateur or a

professional, you can compete or come out to cheer for your favorite shucker. Fresh local seafood will abound—raw and fried oysters, fresh from the bay, crab cakes, scallops, clams on the half shell and more. Plus regional and festival favorites

that will make your mouth water. Down on the waterfront, folks can enjoy a platter

from the Raw Bar or the Oyster Cracker Cafe; or visit the wine-tasting area where they can sample the fruits of three local wineries or purchase some of Cape May Brewing Company ’s fine beers. Visitors can watch the boats on the river, and lis- ten to local musicians while they eat. Attendees can also step aboard the schooner A.J. Meerwald for a cruise on the Maurice River. The three short sails, at 1, 2:45 and 4:30 p.m., frequently sell out on the day of the festival. Or take a longer evening sail from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. and participate in the lighted boat parade on the Maurice River and watch the evening fireworks on board. Tickets for all sails may be purchased in advance online at www.bayshorediscovery.org or by calling

856-785-2060.

Fireworks are back, thanks to the efforts of the Commercial Township Chamber of Commerce. So stay down in Bivalve for dinner and a concert on the wharf from 7 to 9 p.m. and watch the lighted boat parade at dusk and the fire- works over the river as it gets dark.
