Hope you all had a blessed holiday. The nice weather is upon us. It’s great to turn off the heat and open the windows.
For those of you that don’t know, our Teitelman School principal, Marine Lt. Col. Gene Sole, is back from serving a tour of duty in Iraq.
I think I can speak for most of us in saying thank you to him and welcoming him back to the community.
I understand he got a surprise when he got off the ferry on April 9 and saw so many familiar faces.
Our high school prom will be May 6 at Cape May Convention Hall from 7 to 11 p.m.
The theme is Midnight in Paris. Tickets are $85 a couple and will go on sale during lunches April 24.
There is no sit-down dinner at Convention Hall, but the school has arranged with a number of restaurants, including Two Mile Inn, Godmothers, the Black Duck, Washington Inn, Tishas, the Crab House, and Bella Mangiata for discounted dinners.
There will also be food and refreshments at the prom.
Photos will be taken outside of the school between 3:30-6:30 p.m.
Remind your sons and daughters that the school has a zero tolerance policy on drinking, and violating that rule could lead to suspension.
Also encourage your teenager to attend the school sponsored after prom festivities. It’s a safe way for them to continue the party with their friends through the night.
With the warm weather here, your youngsters may want to use the skateboard park next to the library.
Residents can use the park for free and bring two non-resident guests who will pay $5 each.
Children under five years old are not allowed in the park and a responsible adult must accompany anyone under 12.
Check with the rec department for additional rules and hours of operation.
The Lower Cape May Regional Board of Education meets April 27 at 7 p.m. in the board’s office next to the high school on Route 9.
Next meeting of township council will be May 1 at 7 p.m. at township hall on Bayshore Road.
The township planning board meets tomorrow night at 7 p.m. in the meeting room at township hall.
Get out there and take a walk, ride a bike and enjoy nature coming back to life.
