BEACH SWEEPS will take place in Avalon and Stone Harbor on Saturday, April 21st.  Volunteers are needed!  In Stone Harbor, meet at the Beach Patrol building at 95th Street & the beach at 9am.  Volunteers are encouraged to bring gloves and dress appropriately for the weather.   In Avalon, the event will be held in conjunction with the annual dune grass planting.  Volunteers are encouraged to sign up in advance by contacting Sue Keen at (609) 967-5924 or  The group will then meet at Community Hall at 30th Street & the beach at 8:30am. 

AVALON’S EXPANDED BIKE PATH:  Work began last week on Avalon’s expanded bike path.  Designed to route bike traffic around congested areas of Dune Drive, new bike lanes will be added to First Avenue and Avalon Avenue.

BOATERS…don’t forget you need a boat license to operate a vessel in New Jersey waters.  The US Coast Guard Auxiliary offers dozens of boat safety courses nearby, including Avalon, Wildwood, Cape May, Ocean City, and other locations.  To find one nearby, click here:

PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH made a brief visit to Atlantic City last week, according the The Press of Atlantic City.  Bush “43,” arrived on a private plane at 9:30am last Thursday in order to deliver a speech at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, and then left town around 12:30pm. 

RENTAL INCOME is a great way to offset the cost of purchasing a vacation home.  You can rent out your vacation home two weeks tax free, or rent as many weeks as you like to cover more of your carrying costs.  How about a $269,000 condo with $15,000 in rental income?  Or perhaps a $1.8 million home with $90,000 in income?  In either scenario, your tenants cover A LOT of the cost of your ownership.  Whatever your budget, let me show you what kind of rental income we can generate for you!
