AVALON COUNCILMAN RICHARD DEAN submitted a letter of resignation to the Avalon Borough Council, effective November 30th. Dean has been a member of the Borough Council since 1987; he cited health issues as the reason for his departure. Avalon Mayor Martin Pagliughi said “Dick Dean has left a legacy of public service in the Borough of Avalon for which the public will benefit for generations to come.” Avalon Borough Council is accepting letters of interest until December 5th from Avalon residents interested in filling the remainder of Dean’s term, which expires June 30th, 2019. Interested candidates will be interviewed by Council at a closed session on December 12th.
160 LOCAL FAMILIES HOSTED Coast Guard recruits from Cape May for the Thanksgiving holiday, thanks to Operation Fireside. Initiated 38 years ago, Operation Fireside allows recruits time off with host families, allowing them to relax, eat a home-cooked meal, watch television, and call family members at home.
AVALON RESCUE SQUAD purchased a new 2018 Ford E450 Horton Ambulance, replacing a 14 year old model. The new $217,000 ambulance was funded entirely through donations, and provides the latest safety features for patients and crews.
CONGRATULATIONS KELSEY AND DAVID! Immediately after Mayor Pagliughi and Santa lit Avalon’s Christmas tree this past weekend, David Schweizer and his girlfriend Kelsey got engaged! The couple is planning a December 2019 wedding. Congratulations David and Kelsey!
