Please watch the first of what we hope will be many episodes exploring the history of Ocean Grove, New Jersey.

This one is all about our annual Christmas tree lighting. Our volunteer Mary Solecki found out (kind of by accident) that this year marks the 100th anniversary of the event. Follow us around town as Kim Brittingham shares how the event has evolved over the years.
