Editor’s note
:   In 2016 we posted an article about how Ocean Grove’s South End almost became a condo community in the 1980’s.   But the developers were successfully beaten back thanks to a coordinated community backlash, and that’s why we now have the open area along Fletcher Lake,  including the park-like setting near the boardwalk.  That’s why we now have  open air, light and space at the OG South End.

And that  is what we should be getting at the North End in 2020.  Read about it.  Here is a link.   —-PG. Blogfinger.net

Re-post from 2015.   “Around Town With Jean:”

“Harry Eichhorn’s Summer Band is a treasure. It is reminiscent of days gone by.
Where else can you hear a rousing song, feel the ocean breezes, then stroll for ice cream?”

–Jean Bredin, Blogfinger staff.

Here is a link to a 2013 article which we posted about Harry :     Wild about Harry

From Jean Bredin  (video)  Around Town with Jean:

“The Ocean Grove Summer Band performed a variety of songs tonight at the Great Auditorium. this is  Sousa’s “Stars and Stripes Forever”—a traditional march to get toes tapping and hands clapping at the conclusion of an OG concert.
There was a nice crowd who came out to hear the music.
Harry Eichhorn treated us by leading the band for a number of songs .
This is their 66th year.
Here is a Blogfinger link from 2015.
