This 42-foot Class A motor home on a Freightliner engine and frame is outfitted with high-quality furnishings and conveniences.  ATLANTIC CITY - On Friday, Feb, 14, my oldest son David and I went to the Atlantic City RV show. Being avid campers, we both go as often as we can. All I could think as we stared open-mouthed at some of the RV interiors was, ‘This isn’t the camping we knew when David and his brothers were kids.’ We had traveled over much of the country in a VW bus towing a pop-up camper.

The Superstorm Sandy information sharing sessions are moving to Wednesdays starting on Feb. 26. Many of us are still in the painfully slow process of recovering from the storm. It helps to share the information we learned along the way and at the same time get an update on the latest recovery programs.

The previous program was part of a grant that was headed up by New Jersey Hope and Healing. The new weekly program runs from 6:30 p.m. until 8 p.m. at the Brigantine Beach Community Center and consists of a Sandy update by a Brig Strong representative and then an information sharing session, where one can find useful suggestions for coping with and solving Sandy-related issues. The sessions are free and open to adults. Light refreshments are served. Come out and join your neighbors: “You don’t have to go it alone.”
