Annual Beersheba Preservation Awards Banquet And Walking TourBanquet Monday June 18, 2012 6PM at The Starving Artist
The 17th Annual Beersheba Awards Dinner will be held Monday, June 18th, at 6:00 pm at the Starving Artist Restaurant at Day’s. The awards will honor homeowners, businesses, groups and individuals who have contributed their time and effort to renovate, restore, and/or generate activities that are in keeping with the history and traditions of Ocean Grove.
For years before our first Beersheba Awards Banquet in 1996 the HSOG board was aware and discussed the many wonderful things that were being done to preserve and restore this unique community that we all enjoy. Individuals, groups, business, and organizations were all working to restore and preserve Ocean Grove. The idea of acknowledging their efforts was talked about but never came to fruition.
The singular act that finally brought us to this event was the efforts of an individual who, not looking for recognition, decided he wanted to restore the old light standard in front of what is now Central Jersey Bank on Main Avenue. The board said “It’s Time”. The Beersheba Awards event was born. This year, as in past years, we have a wonderful committee that has been working to present a program along with the presentation of the awards. Please try to attend. You’ll be glad you did.
We also invite you to join the Historical Society at a delicious buffet dinner the evening of the awards. Space is limited so we encourage you to purchase tickets as early as possible.
Cost is $30 per person.
We look forward to members and friends joining us for this celebration of our town and its many historical treasures. It is only through our shared commitment and stewardship of Ocean Grove that we can hope to share the beauty of our town with generations
to come. Please help us honor those who have committed
themselves to this work.
