October 7, 2007

Mayor Hershey is seen with Borough Administrator John Camera, Borough Clerk Diane Stabley, and some of the members of the Hugh J. Boyd Jr. Elementary School Early Childhood Education staff. The Mayor met with the first graders on Wednesday October 3rd as part of their unit on government.

It was a very exciting day for Seaside Heights first graders on Wednesday October 3rd. This day, the classes of Mrs. Lori Beers and Mrs. Jean Gillon came to Borough Hall to meet Mayor Ken Hershey. Also present was floating Early Childhood Education teacher Mrs. Miriam Schneider, and also paraprofessional, Mrs. Dot Montgomery. The students took a walk to Borough Hall to speak to the Mayor as part of their social studies curriculum, which includes a unit about government. The children asked the Mayor many probing questions, including whether or not he liked being the Mayor. Mr. Hershey said that he likes it most times, but occasionally he encounters unhappy people who like to yell at him. In his usual tradition, the mayor gave all the students a giant Hershey bar, his longtime calling card.

It’s the Great Pumpkin, Pete…

October 7, 2007

Pete is seen with the Halloween lawn display he ordered for the Fall of 2007.

Recently, Halloween decorations were placed on the lawn at the Borough Hall in Seaside Heights. The creations were made by local artist Al Poane, and are in the theme of “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.” The display was ordered by the Seaside Heights Director of Public Relations, who readers know is yours truly, Pete Smith. Additionally, all the windows of the Borough Hall have been decked-out with special, spooky orange lights that should not be missed. In all, 300 C-7 lights were used in the windows of the Borough Hall. It should be noted that the Borough cleared out the entire remaining stock of orange lights from the manufacturer, Display Sales of Bloomington, Minnesota.

I GOT A ROCK! A scene from the Peanuts classic, It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown is depicted on the lawn of the Seaside Heights Borough Hall.
