Tuesday was a pretty good day for Harry VanWagenen as the Point Pleasant Borough High School senior was randomly selected as the recipient of this year’s WOBM/Gateway Toyota Student of the Week scholarship.
The group includes six valedictorians and four salutatorians, outstanding athletes, talented musicians and singers, school and community leaders and on and on. They are the 38 young men and women who have been honored during this school year as WOBM/Gateway Toyota Students of the Week.
Last week I said Seaside Heights officials were rolling the dice a bit by hosting a weekend music festival as ambitious as the “Gentlemen of the Road Stopover” featuring Mumford & Sons which took over the town for several days. I’m glad to report that they did not crap out but rather rolled a 7 as by most accounts the weekend was a smashing success.
Despite rumors to the contrary Seaside Heights will not be closed to the public this weekend although if you don’t live or work there OR are not attending a huge two-day music festival you might want to head elsewhere.
From a standpoint of the weather it would have been better to welcome the summer season last week but tonight the Community Medical Center Foundation will hold its 10th Annual Red, White & Brew Kick Off the Summer wine tasting event at the Toms River Country Club.
For local golf fans this weekend is a chance to see most of the top female players in the world as the ShopRite LPGA Classic tees off this morning on the Bay Course at Stockton Seaview Hotel & Golf Club in Galloway
The band "Kinderhook Creek," now known simply as “Kinderhook," will be making their first appearance in the shore area in over three decades on Saturday as part of the fifth annual “Rock for the Nurses” fundraiser at the Idle Hour Restaurant & Bar in Point Pleasant.
A little of this and a little of that following what was for me a 4-day weekend which is more like a mini-vacation. You start to get into that lifestyle where you can stay up late because the alarm clock doesn’t go off at 2:45 the following morning.
