Wildwood Historical Society to reopen after closing for winter


PRESS RELEASE

WILDWOOD
— After six months of being closed for the winter off-season, the Wildwood Historical Society will reopen April 4.

The historical society’s George Boyer Museum, located at 3907 Pacific Avenue, will be open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. until Memorial Day, when the hours will extend to every day of the week from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The only exceptions are Sundays, when the museum will be closed.

Volunteers have spent the winter updating the ever-growing collection with memorabilia donated by visitors. The historical society had their busiest season on record last year thanks to plenty of rainy days, but they hope to have an even busier season this year.

“Whether the weather is sunny or rainy this summer, we hope our supporters will continue to return to the museum to reminisce, and to show their children and grandchildren how historic Wildwood is,” said historical society President Al Brannen.

The museum’s latest additions come from notable places in Wildwood’s past: Hunt’s Theatre, the Dolphin Restaurant, the Tram Cars, Fun Pier and the Stardust nightclub, plus lots of items related to railroad history, boardwalk nostalgia and the Victorian hotels of old. With monetary donations provided by donors, fundraisers and memberships, the building’s new roof was completed this spring.

“We are so grateful for our supporters and members,” said museum manager Pam Bross. “Thanks to them, Wildwood’s heritage will be protected for years to come.”

The gift shop has also expanded this year, and now includes a variety of Wildwood buttons, hats, wall art, books, DVDs, snow globes and wind-up Tram Cars. All profits benefit the historical society.

Staff are always on hand to help visitors navigate the collection and locate information related to the history of the island’s families, properties and more.

The Wildwood Historical Society is a nonprofit that is independent of the City of Wildwood.

For more information, visit their website at wildwoodhistoricalmuseum.com or follow them on social media at facebook.com/wwhistoricalsociety, Instagram.com/wildwoodhistoricalsociety, or twitter.com/wwhistoricalsoc.

March Is Red Cross Month: Be a Hero in Your Community


Volunteer, give blood, learn lifesaving skills or donate to #help1family on Red Cross Giving Day...

PRESS RELEASE

PRINCETON, NJ – March is Red Cross Month and the American Red Cross New Jersey Region asks people to be a hero for others by becoming a volunteer, learning lifesaving skills, giving blood or donating to #help1family on Red Cross Giving Day, March 27.

“During Red Cross Month, we are proud to recognize our volunteers who provide hope and urgent relief to families in need every day,” said Rosie Taravella, CEO, American Red Cross New Jersey Region. “These heroes are our neighbors who give blood, save lives with skills like first aid and CPR, offer support services to our military service members and their families, or provide care and comfort to families devastated by crises like home fires. We honor our volunteers and ask you to join them and make a difference.”

More than 75 years ago, March was first proclaimed Red Cross Month in 1943 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt to raise awareness of the organization and its humanitarian mission. All U.S. presidents since Roosevelt have designated March as Red Cross Month to recognize how the American Red Cross helps people across the country and around the world through its workforce powered by more than 90 percent volunteers.

During March, several iconic New Jersey locations and landmarks will be illuminated RED to recognize Red Cross Month, including the Battleship New Jersey in Camden, the Prudential Center Marquee in Newark, and the New Jersey State House on March 18.


EVERY DAY, VOLUNTEERS HELP

Every eight minutes in the U.S., the Red Cross connects with a family who has lost everything to a home fire or other disaster—the roof over their heads, their clothes, their most cherished possessions. This past year was no exception—and the need continues today.

Last year, Red Cross volunteers helped millions of people reeling from a second consecutive year of record wildfires, hurricanes, tragic shootings and other large disasters across the country. More than 200 volunteer heroes from New Jersey deployed to other states to help deliver urgent relief and care in people’s darkest hours.

This winter, home fires continue to upend lives and Red Cross volunteers are there to help. In February alone, Red Cross volunteers assisted more than 500 people in 200 families affected by at least 66 home fires in New Jersey during the short month.


HOW YOU CAN HELP - #help1family:
  • Become a volunteer: Help families affected by disasters and install lifesaving smoke alarms to keep neighbors safe from home fires. You can also provide emergency assistance for military members and veterans, or help reconnect families separated by international conflict.
  • Give blood: Make an appointment to donate lifesaving blood or platelets. 
  • Learn lifesaving skills: Register for a class to learn first aid, CPR and other skills.
  • Make a financial donation: On March 27—American Red Cross Giving Day—donate at redcross.org/givingday, uniting with thousands of people like you to help families during the first devastating hours of a disaster. Your gift can provide hope and urgent relief, like food, shelter and other essentials, for families who need it most.

New Jersey residents can help support the Red Cross while filing their 2018 NJ State Tax Returns. Donations can be made by checking box 64 on the NJ-1040 Form and entering Code 14 for the American Red Cross-NJ Fund.

People can find information about Red Cross Month events, volunteer opportunities, blood donation and other ways to support the work of the Red Cross by visiting redcross.org/NJ.

Crest Fire Company receives grant from The Wawa Foundation

PRESS RELEASE

The Borough of Wildwood Crest’s Volunteer Fire Company has received a $2,500 grant from The Wawa Foundation to support the company’s emergency services efforts.

According to Wildwood Crest Fire Chief Ron Harwood, the grant money will be used to help purchase new fire gear, maintain existing fire apparatus, upgrading equipment and replace 15-year-old self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) air packs.

The Wildwood Crest Volunteer Fire Company applied for the grant online earlier this year. According to its website, The Wawa Foundation is a registered non-profit corporation founded by Wawa, Inc., that supports organizations committed to championing life-saving research and care for people in need, leading hunger-relief efforts and supporting the heroes making a difference every day.

“The Wildwood Crest Volunteer Fire Company is committed to maintaining the highest level of emergency attention available to the residents and visitors of Wildwood Crest,” Harwood said. “It can cost a great deal of money to provide the required training and to purchase the specialized equipment that we use on a daily basis. We are extremely appreciative to The Wawa Foundation for providing us with this grant, which we will certainly put to good use.”

Wildwood Crest recognized as ‘Healthy Town in the Making’

PRESS RELEASE

The Borough of Wildwood Crest has received special recognition through its participation in the statewide Mayors Wellness Campaign for the 2018 calendar year.

Wildwood Crest has been designated as a “Healthy Town in the Making” by the New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute, in partnership with the New Jersey State League of Municipalities.

A total of 18 municipalities were recognized by the New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute. Eight were awarded a “Healthy Town” designation, while seven others were recognized as “Healthy Towns to Watch.” Wildwood Crest is one of the three New Jersey municipalities designated as a 2018 “Healthy Town in the Making,” along with Jefferson Township and Vernon Township.

Each year communities participating in the Mayors Wellness Campaign (MWC) complete a comprehensive application outlining the research they’ve done to identify their community health needs, explain how they have organized their local MWC committee, and highlight the actions they’ve taken to make their communities a healthier place to live, work, and play.

Wildwood Crest first promoted its Mayors Wellness Campaign initiatives in 2018 after establishing the Wildwood Crest Wellness Committee, made up of community volunteers as well as staff members from the Wildwood Crest Recreation Department. Programs in 2018 included a Wellness Weekend that included an employee basketball game and a wellness walk hosted by Wildwood Crest Mayor Don Cabrera. In addition, the borough also hosted a community bike ride hosted by Mayor Cabrera that included discussions on bicycle safety.

Additional wellness initiatives are planned for Wildwood Crest for 2019. The borough will host its wellness walk on Saturday, April 6, and its employee basketball game on Friday, April 12. The Wildwood Crest Recreation Department and Wellness Committee will also host a seven-part lecture series by various healthcare professionals on a variety of health and wellness topics beginning March 27.

In addition, the Wildwood Crest Mayors Wellness Campaign also includes plans to install walkway markers along the Wildwood Crest Bike Path and along Sunset Lake to help walkers, runners and bikers determine distances traveled.

“Wildwood Crest is proud to receive this recognition from the New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute,” Cabrera said. “The Crest has just started to scratch the surface in its wellness initiatives. You can’t find a more perfect community setting for wellness with our excellent beach, parks, events, pool, bike path — not to mention our dedicated residents and vacationers. There’s more to come.”

Now in its 12th year, the Mayors Wellness Campaign is a program of the New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute in partnership with the New Jersey State League of Municipalities. The program empowers mayors across New Jersey with evidence-based tools, strategies, and support to champion health and wellness in their communities.

Hatchet throwing - yes, hatchet throwing! - coming to the Boardwalk


Do you have an axe to grind? A hatchet to bury?

Well, you're in luck!

Flying Hatchets is set to debut this Spring at 4004 Boardwalk, bringing the axe tossing/hatchet throwing phenomenon to the Wildwoods for the first time.

The attraction is presently under development next door to XD Dark Ride, the interactive, cinematic shoot-em-up, and Cloak & Dagger Escape Rooms, which premiered last summer to rave reviews.

All three ventures are owned and operated by MSquared Productions, which now boasts a verifiable boardwalk entertainment center, just south of Spencer Avenue (directly across from Morey's Adventure Pier).

"We're beyond excited to bring another first to the Wildwoods Boardwalk with Flying Hatchets," owner/manager Brian Martin told Wildwood 365. "The hatchet throwing craze has really caught on around the country and will be a great fit here. It's an absolute blast, and an ideal outing for groups."

Martin, who also operates a Flying Hatchets venue in Hamilton, NJ, emphasized safety as his top priority, and confirmed that entry will be permitted only to those 16 years of age and older.

(Both XD Dark Ride and Cloak & Dagger Escape Rooms, meanwhile, carry no age restrictions.)

Hatchet throwing is essentially an activity where participants throw an axe at a target, attempting to hit the bull's-eye or as close as possible.

What began as a sport and staple of lumberjack-related competitions evolved into contests of leisure (similar to darts) at fairs and festivals throughout the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom. Over the past few years, commercial locations have found success around the world.
