Toms River Resident Celebrates 100th Birthday PDF Print E-mail

Mayor Thomas F. Kelaher was invited to celebrate the 100th birthday of Toms River resident Lucy Stellatella.

Born Lucy Fortunato, the centenarian spent most of her life in Newark, NJ, where she worked as a secretary in a government position, before retiring. She moved down to Toms River about 15 years ago. Mayor Kelaher went to Lucy’s home to offer his birthday wishes and celebrate this major milestone with her. “She’s a very nice person and I’m glad she has chosen to make Toms River her home.”

Stellatella says she’s fortunate to have so many nieces and nephews to share the holidays with this year.

Sandy Photos Before & After: One Year Later PDF Print E-mail

New Superstorm Sandy photos are available for viewing on the Toms River Township website. The “Before & After” photos show the barrier island in a state of destruction, immediately after the storm. The bottom half of the photos depict the same area one year later.

“As you look at the comparison photos on our website, you’ll be reminded of the extreme devastation that existed, and the reasons why our area was declared a State of Emergency disaster zone for so many weeks.” Mayor Tom Kelaher said. “These photos also exhibit just how far we’ve come in the past year.”

As always, if residents need help with recovery, they can contact the appropriate person at town hall to help them navigate through the rebuilding and/or decision-making process. To view photos, go to www.TomsRiverTownship.com and click on the “photo gallery” under the main menu.

During Hurricane Sandy, homes were lifted off their foundation and then they drifted onto the middle of Route 35 in the Ortley Beach section of Toms River. One year later, the roads are passable and many homes are being rebuilt.
