Welcome to the Jersey Shore
Welcome to the Monmouth New Jersey Branch and the Jersey Shore. We are in the midst of bringing the Shore back to life after Hurricane Sandy. Our events of last year were seriously curtailed or cancelled but we are back on track because as the theme goes "We are stronger than the storm."
Our Long Range Planning Committee has been hard at work and we will be offering some interesting programs in the 2013-2014 season. We will be featuring a speaker on the work and life of Jane Austen; our usual and wonderful Holiday Party in December; attending a performance of "As you like it" at the Two River Theater in cooperation with the local Root Beer and Checker Club; the Shakespeare Competition under the direction of its new coordinator, Janet Smuga; and more surprises as we go along into the season.
Please join us and please join our branch. The form for joining is on the website and it is really easy to complete. Also -please consider becoming a National Patron - and you can earmark up to half of your payment back to the local Branch
