14th Annual Taste of Southern Ocean County Hunger Relief Dinner

should have to grow up hungry. Despite the devastating
consequences of childhood hunger, it is, for the most part,
invisible. Hunger doesn’t discriminate. It can affect any child,
even those you’d least expect. In Ocean County, more than
50,000 people live in poverty —one in every six is a child.
Since its inception in 1995, the Taste dinner has raised over
two hundred and fifty thousand dollars in an effort to support
anti‐hunger and anti‐poverty initiatives in our community.
The 2008 Hunger Relief Dinner raised nearly $50,000. The
money was distributed to these local food pantries:
Barnegat Food Pantry
Lacey Food Bank
Ocean Community Church Food Ministry
St. Francis Center Food Pantry
Ken's Kitchen‐St. Mary's Church
St. Stephen's Episcopal Church Food Pantry
Tuckerton Area Inter‐Church Food Pantry
In this time of recession the number of families in need of
assistance has ballooned to unprecedented proportions.
Our neighbors need our help now

Happy Easter as we welcome Spring.......

It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so! ~Mark Twain

Bravo to Brave Capt. Phillips and Our US Navy!

Lyrics for today,


We stood in the moonlight and the river flowed
And God walked through the garden
A mist came falling down to the ground
I watched it all with no obligation
This is your sister, this is your brother
This is your mother, not somebody's dream
And all our lifetimes drifted through the trees
To that place of moments where all was certain
Travellers on an olden road
With all the baggage of our days and years
We're life's carriers to the next unborn
And I'll carry you
Till this great race is over

We stood in the garden
And the river flowed....
