Missing from photo: Johanne Milnes BRIGANTINE- Last Thursday's storm wreaked havoc up on the seawall.  Some of the pots were not only full of sand; they were mounded over the top completely covering all the plants. Some of the pots are surrounded by five or six inches of sand. All the signs have been collected; we seem to have lost only one. Please clean out your pot of all plants no later than Oct. 6. We will be storing the pots at the community center for the winter. Pot tenders, thank you for adopting your pot to water. Again I received several compliments today as I was working up there. They were enjoyed by many.

I am a Republican. I was an active member of the Brigantine Republican Club, and I am also a former member of the New Republican Party, spearheaded by Andy Simpson, prior to his election to the City Council to represent the 1st Ward in Brigantine.
