Avalon and Stone Harbor NJ Weekly Update December 14th, 2017 #RealEstate

FIVE STARS FOR THE AVALON LIBRARY!  For the tenth time the Avalon Library has been awarded a five-star rating by the Library Journal’s Index of Public Library Service.  Only six libraries in New Jersey received that level of recognition.  Visit the library on your next trip to town—between the book collection, classes, labs, and other programs, you’ll be impressed!

The Santa Express is running again this year between Tuckahoe and Richland.

CAPE MAY SEASHORE LINES has been escorting Santa over the rails between historic Tuckahoe Station and Richland.  The Santa Express will make several more runs between now and Christmas, with trains running on December 14th, 16th, 17th, 19th, 21st, 22nd, and 23rd.  There is even a Winter Limited running December 27th, though Santa will be back at the North Pole by then.  Check CMSL’s Santa Express website for scheduled departures, or to order tickets:
