Wildwood Historical Museum Weekly Update - Sunday, July 15, 2018


Welcome to the first edition of a weekly feature where we will take a look at recent happenings at the Wildwood Historical Society's George F. Boyer Museum - including news, building updates, recent donations to the collection, upcoming events and much more!

Through this collaboration, we aim to encourage our readers to visit and support the museum - a literal treasure trove of artifacts, memorabilia and tens of thousands of photos that, collectively, brings the colorful history of the Wildwoods to life.

The museum's Board of Directors (of which I am a recently-elected member) take great pride in preserving and presenting this heritage for present-day and future visitors alike.

The information that follows was compiled by board member Taylor Henry and volunteer extraordinaire Jackson Betz, both of whom - along with museum manager Pam Bross - donate many weekly hours to furthering the historical society's efforts...

Genuine Boardwalk Souvenirs Available


100 pieces of AUTHENTIC Wildwood Boardwalk wooden blocks have been cured and were made available at the museum's gift shop as of this past weekend. Of course, these are wildly popular items and will go fast.


New Swag!

Brand new Castle Dracula designs have been added to the museum's line of collectible buttons. Others available at our gift shop feature classic amusements, landmarks and celebrity performers of the past.

Help keep Wildwood history alive by picking up one (or a dozen) on your next visit. You can also visit the museum's official store online.


'Gigi" Makes Annual Visit

Staff and visitors were delighted by a visit from Sightseer Tram Cars icon John "Gigi" Gigliotti last Tuesday. Sporting his trademark smile and blue & yellow attire (the Trams' colors!), Gigi still works 17 hours a day on Boardwalk during the summer, serving as the operation's Supervisor & Safety Coordinator.

For more photos and info on Gigi's visit, check out the museum's official Facebook page. You never know who is going to stop by 3907 Pacific, on any given day...



 Zaberer's 'Icicles' Donated


Do you remember the decorative "icicles" that once lined the exterior of the legendary Zaberer's Restaurant? A donor recently brought in a piece to add to our ever-growing collection!

Details like this are not just historical, they have the ability to spark the memory's imagination. Where and how will it be displayed? Stop by soon to find out.


Back Roof Completed


One of the museum's essential renovation projects has been realized with the completion of the back roof. Additional patchwork will resume within a few weeks. Donations make necessary work such as this possible, and ensures protection for the museum's collections.


Bricks delivered, to be installed soon

Recently-purchased engraved brick pavers have been delivered and will be installed on the sidewalk in front of the museum very soon.

A special "thank you" to all who have ordered. This is a great way to help support the museum's mission.

Additional info on the Buy-A-Brick Campaign is available HERE.

Dogs invited to Paw-ty at Morey's Piers' Doggie Dash & Splash in September


PRESS RELEASE

THE WILDWOODS, NJ
–  Bark by popular demand, Morey’s Piers goes completely to the dogs on Saturday, September 8. With a full line-up of fido-friendly events, pups, mutts and purebreds of all shapes and sizes are invited to celebrate the dog days of summer.

The Doggie Dash kicks-off the tail-wagging events at 10:00am on September 8 when pooches set the pace for the 5K and 1 mile races on the beach adjacent to Raging Waters Water Park. Participant prizes include a dog tag finisher medal for dogs, an official doggie dash leash, and a commemorative t-shirt.

After the dash, dogs and owners will be treated to a beachside finisher’s celebration with music, food, games and activities.

New for 2018, Doggie Dash participants can add on a Doggie Splash admission for $10 granting access to the water park right after the race. The exclusive 10:30 PM to 11:45 PM time slot is only available to Doggie Dash participants.

The day continues with a splash for the fifth annual puppy pool party at Raging Waters “Water Bark.” From 12:00pm to 5:00pm Morey’s Piers will host nine different one-hour long sessions that are staggered throughout the day to accommodate admission for more dogs.

Celebrating the close of the water park for the season, canines have free rein to paddle along the river adventure, play in the fountain pool or fetch tennis balls in the activity pool.

On Saturday, September 8, PigDog Beach Bar will be open from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Both family and dog-friendly, the new breed of beach bar is serving up tasty barbecue classics, cocktails and local beers on tap.

Special dishes include the PigDog Dog, a foot-long all-beef hot dog topped with smoked pulled pork and jalapenos on a potato roll. The Pig Big, another must-try, is a sourdough loaf stuffed with smoked pulled pork, covered in Monterey Jack cheese, and topped with pickled jalapenos and scallions.

PigDog Beach Bar invites pooches and guests of all ages to kick-back and enjoy the laidback atmosphere accessible via Raging Waters Water Park, the beach, and the boardwalk.
