Beards and Bridges

Here are a couple of links to SandPaper articles of interest this week. First is about the Surf City Police Dept participating in the “No Shave November” to help raise funds for pediatric cancer. Second is related to the rehabilitation of the old Rt 72 causeway bridge.

Trunk Or Treat Event a HUGE Success

The Surf City Taxpayers Association sponsored a trunk again this year. Regina Halikas did a marvelous job for the association crafting a “Queen Of Hearts” costume for herself and her nephew Evan Harrison.
   A gigantic THANK YOU to Regina and her family — from The Surf City Taxpayers Association — for the countless hours she put into this year’s Trunk or Treat event. Her Alice in Wonderland “re-creation” was spectacular…and one of the most creative presentations at the event.
A fantastic turnout this year for the second annual Trunk Or Treat event. Last year was around 400 in attendance. This year around 1,500….amazing and creative trunk displays…and dozens of volunteers working to make it a very special evening for all to enjoy. The beautiful weather made it a pure joy to attend too.

Breaching Whales and Trick or Treats

Several whales have been spotted off our shores this month. Here’s a picture from 10/22 of a breaching whale. Always a beautiful and amazing sight to behold.
