There is now a memorial  paver in the Veterans Park  Beach Haven Terrace, donated by the Garden Club of Long Beach Island. It can be found in front of the gazebo.  Veterans Park is located on 132nd street in Beach Haven Terrace. When you visit you will find it is a lovely place to reflect and relax.


Warmth for Warriors

This is a thank you note to our garden club members who knit hats for our military to wear under their helmets. They are 100 percent wool . As as you can see,  they are very grateful for the hats.
