Avalon and Stone Harbor NJ Weekly Update May 10, 2018 #RealEstate

WHERE DO ALL THOSE BEACH TAGS COME FROM?  Sure, they wind up pinned to your swim suit or beach bag—but did you ever wonder where shore towns get all those tags?  A recent article says they come from Jersey Cape Training and Opportunity Center, in Cape May Court House.  The facility produces 15,000 to 20,000 tags per day—and more than three million per year—while providing employment opportunities in a vocational rehabilitation center.  Read the article here:

Patrons enjoy cocktails and a view of the bay at The Reeds at Shelter Haven on a summer evening.

“A WHALE OF A FERRY RIDE!”  That’s how the Cape May-Lewes Ferry described a recent trip…watch this three second video clip on Facebook and you’ll see why!  From whales to dolphins to large ships to beautiful sunsets, a ride on the Ferry is an experience you won’t forget!

BULK TRASH collection is here in both Avalon and Stone Harbor.  In Avalon, bulk items may be placed curbside through Sunday, May 13th for collection on Monday, May 14th.  In Stone Harbor, bulk items may be placed curbside up to 72 hours prior to collection on Monday, May 14th.   Construction debris is not collected and should not be placed at the curb.

SAVE THE DATE!  Seven Mile Restaurant Week takes place June 4th through 10th.  Keep an eye out for details on dining specials that will be available that week.

THIS WEEKEND brings more activities to enjoy, including wine tasting, hoagie and plant sales, a borough-wide yard sale, a big band dance, and a jazz concert.  See below for details, then c’mon down to enjoy a beautiful spring weekend at the beach!
