I would like to introduce myself, Jennifer L. Grazioso, a resident of Lacey for 23 years. I graduated from Lacey Township High School, class of 1989. I continued studies at Georgian Court University majoring in Psychology/Elementary Education graduating in 1994. I currently reside in Manahawkin with my wonderful husband John and my phenomenal children, Allie (age 21) and Nicholas (age 17).
The Forked River Gazette has been in publication since 1971, when it was started by the original owner, Mr. Joe Stewart. My mother, Valerie R. Entrup, started collaborating with Joe by selling advertisements locally. It was in 1982 that Valerie purchased The Forked River Gazette creating a true following of loyal readers as well as clients.
Throughout the years Valerie treated her job less as work and more as a passion and established many business contacts whom had become long-term friends.
My mother passed away in 2001 and to this day is missed greatly. Valerie left a legacy unifying the community through The Forked River Gazette, and as a result that same legacy is carried on by me.
In 2007, for the first time in 37 years, I changed the paper transforming the layout from old-school to digital form. Now, I would like to invite you to join us on our website: www.forkedrivergazette.com for further information.
The Forked River Gazette is a “magazine” that readers cherish throughout the month with the anticipation of the next one. We value each and every client with respect and integrity. I would like to thank my readers and advertisers for their loyal support over the years and for years to come!
