Ocean Grove: decorating a tent for the house tour. Dec. 6i, 2019. Jean Bredin ©


The tent was decorated inside and out for Saturday’s  (Dec. 7)  tour of Christmas houses in Ocean Grove.
The Christmas tree inside had vintage bangles, baubles, and balls, in addition to Teddy Bears, and Dolls, a 100 plus year old Victorian print of Christmas.

To the Editor:

Dear Santa (& all who will listen)

For Christmas I’d like several things …

  • Removal of the garbage laden dumpster on Main Avenue, OG
  • Demolition of the hazardous eyesore also on Main (#80 to be exact)
  • Resurfacing of the myriad patched local OG streets (perhaps $ to re-align my vehicle, too)
  • Someone to re-visit/re-align our recent property tax increases ( $2000 for me)
  • A more specific schedule at the Neptune Senior Center (with adherence, of course)
  • Affirmation of Ocean Grove’s status as a National and State Historic District
  • Banish the Grinches who would steal our community’s heritage (i.e. “the North End Project”)

My thoughts are many, my list is short.

Merry Christmas
