Through End of Year

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 have been extended to the end of year. For more information call (609) 859-3598.


The Indian Mills Volunteer Fire Company serving Shamong Township, is currently conducting a sneaker recycling program. Partnering with Got Sneakers!, they will collect and recycle used sneakers and athletic shoes, and return a small donation per pair to the local fire company.

The program is fairly simple. Collect your used sneakers or athletic shoes (must be a matched pair) and drop them off at one of the following collection sites:

  • Indian Mills Volunteer Fire Company, 48 Willow Grove Road (lobby open 24/7).
  • Shamong Township Municipal Building 105 Willow Grove Road (outside the tax collector window.
  • Indian Mills Memorial School 295 Indian Mills Road (front lobby, please refer to the school newsletter for details).
  • Indian Mills Elementary School 112 Indian Mills Road (front lobby, please refer to the school newsletter for details).
  • Crossroads Church of Shamong 445 Oakshade Road.

The Fire Company will handle the logistics of getting the sneakers to Got Sneakers!, who will handle recycling and will send a small donation back to the fire company for all qualifying pairs.
