"When you are totally at peace with yourself, nothing can shake you."

As we all know it is getting a bit cold. It is a little hard to keep calm. We have our family and, of course, our military. This year is a tough one with so many out of work. Rev. John Scotland of the Community Presbyterian Church is collecting turkeys and fixings. The address is 1501 Brigantine Ave., or call 609-266-7943. If you have unwrapped toys, they too would be great.

Members of the Garden Club proposed to city government that the area have sod and gardens put there. Today the area is still beautiful and being maintained by club members.

To continue with my history of the Brigantine Garden Club, in April, 1980, the club was started at a social function in the home of the Sibsons.  Elsie and Thomas Bradley, James and Lois Openshaw, Henry and Bertha Schwerdtle, Betty and Harry Sheets, and Le and Walter Sibson donated $10 per couple to get the club started. Betty Sheetz was the first president.
