Shamong Township is seeking nominations of Veteran’s (living or deceased) who can be honored in Shamong and be added to the War Memorial at 106 Indian Mills Road located in front of the Indian Mills 1921 School building.
The war memorial was placed in front of the school sometime after World War II to honor those who served our country, while residing in Shamong, in World War I, World War II and “Those Who Served After.” In 1972 the memorial was expanded to add the two outer wings. These new additions were added to provide sufficient space to continue to honor those who serve/served our Country.
Eligible candidates, or their survivors, must provide a DD214 Military Service Record, and proof that the Veteran was a resident of Shamong Township at the time of deployment.
Shamong Township current and former residents who qualify may contact the Clerk’s office at (609) 268-2377 Ext. 304 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to receive nominations for consideration is Nov. 1.
After 100 years of service, the Sally Stretch Keen Memorial Library in Vincentown needs your help. Some crucial repairs to our historic building will keep our books dry and our doors open. To make this happen, we applied for and won a matching New Jersey Historic Trust Grant. This is a real honor. It means the Trust recognizes the importance of our building’s architecture, history, and role as your community library. We are thrilled to be preserving our historic building, but a matching grant means that we need our community to help us raise our share after the grant award, which is $57,000. The library is holding a brick fundraiser. Orders are due Nov. 1 For more information call (609) 859-3598.
