Members of the Seaside Heights Volunteer Fire Department seen at the August 8th softball game…

On the evening of August 8th, plans were for a friendly game of softball and fun between firefighters in Seaside Heights and Stafford Township. Unfortunately, an untimely structure fire in Stafford caused many to be unable to attend. However, teams were made up from players who showed up from both sides, and a non-counting game was played. Plans are for a re-match soon.

See photos of 1955 Seaside Heights Boardwalk fire: Historic photos and films of Seaside Heights are all the rage these days. Loyal readers might remember back a few weeks when we announced that over 5,000 people had watched the 1960 Sun and Fun Tourism film on youtube.com. Now we are proud to say that nearly 10 times that amount have tuned in since, with the number of viewers expected to reach over 50,000 by the end of the season. We have recently acquired a large quanity of old photos from the book The First Fifty, and will be sharing them with readers each week. The above photos are from the 1955 fire, a defining moment in the 95-year history of the Borough. The fire happened on June 9, 1955, which happens to be the birthday of local business owner Michael Carbone from the Beachcomber. In 2008, Michael’s building at Dupont Avenue and the Boardwalk is the northern-most survivor of this fire. All of the buildings south of that point were destroyed in 1955.

These are the first known paid lifeguards in the history of the Seaside Heights Beach Patrol.

See first-ever Seaside Heights lifeguards: Another historic photo from The First Fifty is being published this week, this of the first-ever paid Seaside Heights Beach Patrol. It is hard to imagine that this group began with only three members, and has grown to the large size it is today. On a good beach day in modern times, two guards sit to a bench on every street, versus just three men for the entire beach in the very earliest of days. Although we don’t know the name of the Captain or any of the men in this picture, maybe somebody in the public does and can tell us.

See Patrolwoman Ashley’s new blond hair style: Recently, our cameras caught up with Seaside Heights Patrolwoman Ashley Lefevre. Although we can’t get the full effect from this photo, Ashley has added some blond highlights for the summer. Readers might remember Ashley, as she began with the Seaside Heights Office of Public Relations as a CAP student in 2006, and later as a seasonal Assistant to the Director in 2007. Ashley must wear a uniform to work, but in real-life, she is a fashion-plate, known for going above and beyond in dress, hair and make-up.
