What Jersey Shore Town Meeting, Inc. does for the Jersey Shore Community
Jersey Shore Town Meeting, Inc. does more than just put on the annual July 4th carnival….JSTM is the July 4th Celebration.
From Queen Tiadaghton…to the huge fireworks display that finishes out the July 4th week….that is entirely JSTM and its volunteers.
Did you know that JSTM also provides the following to the community:
JSTM hangs the ornaments which adorn the main streets of Jersey Shore.
JSTM pays for the electricity that lights those ornaments starting every Thanksgiving night and through the Christmas season.
JSTM sponsors the annual Christmas parade which brings Santa to town and makes sure the Santa house is setup and ready for use.
A lot of planning on the part of the JSTM volunteers…as well as financial resources go into these things every year…
JSTM provides all these things to the community each year and without JSTM…it all ceases to exist.
Every bit helps…
Past Queen Tiadaghtons and Town Criers
The very first Town Crier was Bernard Gaines in 1965 and he carried on that role till 1967-68 when Mr. Gaines went off to fight in the Vietnam War and ultimately gave his life, dying in battle. His memory was preserved with a new Town Crier carrying on the tradition in 1968 and every year since. The very first Queen Tiadaghton was Yvonne Bullock in 1968. Every year since the Competition has been open to any female Junior, Senior or former Graduate of Jersey Shore Area School District under the age of 21. The new Queen being announced at the conclusion of the Grand Parade each 4th of July.
