SEA ISLE CITY – Officials and business leaders will hold a 1.5-mile ribbon cutting to open the city’s tourism season at 11 a.m. Friday, Feb. 15 on the Promenade at JFK Boulevard.

The event is being held to remind visitors that Sea Isle City is ready for the summer season. It will also mark the start of Polar Bear Weekend.

Mayor Leonard Desiderio and members of Sea Isle’s city council will be joined by state Sen. Jeff Van Drew, Freeholder Director Gerald Thornton, county clerk Rita Marie Fulginiti and Sheriff Gary Schaffer.

The event’s guest ribbon cutter will be Maureen Larsen, a member of the United States Special Olympics Alpine Ski Team, who recently returned home to Sea Isle City from Korea, where she won a medal for her country.

Representatives from ACME Markets/Supervalu will present the Sea Isle City Chamber of Commerce & Revitalization with a check for $10,000 in support of the city’s “We’re Ready” campaign. 

“We all know how Sandy impacted New Jersey – especially in the northern part of the state – and like many, ACME has been working hard to rebound,” said Matt Juhring, ACME district manager. “We are proud to support the work of the Sea Isle Chamber of Commerce and Revitalization and their ‘We’re Ready’ campaign. While we still have some work to do in our Sea Isle City location, ACME will be ready for the upcoming summer season.”
