PRESS RELEASE

May 6, 2014

 

The Historical Society of Ocean Grove is currently seeking nominations for their annual Beersheba Awards. These awards 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 the first Beersheba Awards Banquet in 1996, the HSOG board was aware of and discussed the many wonderful things that were being done to preserve and restore this unique community that we all enjoy. Individuals, groups, businesses 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 about 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.

 

We also invite you to join the Historical Society at a delicious buffet dinner the evening of the awards, where this year’s awards will be presented. If you have a nomination/s please call the museum for a nomination form. The Beersheba Committee will review all the nominations and announce the winners at the Beersheba Awards Dinner, June 16th at 6pm at Starving Artist Restaurant at Day’s. Space is limited so we encourage you to purchase your tickets as early as possible.
