    The money funds half of the township’s budget each year. Officials have said a loss of that revenue would lead to large tax increases or substantial cuts in services.

TUCKAHOE – Nothing says summertime like being on the water. And a refreshing ride along the Tuckahoe River was enjoyed by many during the Greater Tuckahoe Area Merchants' Association 32nd Annual Canoe and Kayak Race on Sunday, Aug. 4.

It was a beautiful sunny day with a swift breeze greeting everyone as they slipped their crafts into the river. The Poker Run, the first event of the day, began at 9 a.m. It is not a race but a fun way to compete by navigating from dock to dock collecting playing cards for the best poker hand. There were two stand-up paddleboards competing. I'm betting there will be more next year.
