 The old saying goes, “Records are meant to be broken.” With the help of the community, that’s exactly what OceanFirst Bank intends to do to the Guinness World Record for Sand Angels, and for very good causes.

On Saturday, October 28, 2017, at 10 a.m. in Seaside Park, NJ, almost five years to the day since Superstorm Sandy made landfall across the New Jersey coastline, OceanFirst Bank will team up with New Jersey Natural Gas, NJ101.5, WOBM, the Asbury Park Press and the Causeway Family of Dealerships to try and break the Guinness World Record for “Most Sand Angels Made Simultaneously.” Currently the record is 1,387 held by Ludington, a city in Western Michigan. The event is being staged to raise money for the Ocean County Long Term Recovery Group to help those still impacted by Superstorm Sandy and the Salvation Army’s Emergency Disaster Services in support of relief efforts aiding recent victims of the 2017 Hurricanes. 

Registration is $5 and can be done online by visiting oceanfirstangels.com. There will be free T-Shirts for the first 1,500 participants, and 100% of the funds raised will go to support disaster relief and recovery. Both the OceanFirst Foundation and New Jersey Natural Gas will donate $10 for each of the first 1,500 registrants.

“As New Jersey’s leading community bank, OceanFirst was proud to play a major role in helping our neighbors and local businesses get back on their feet following Superstorm Sandy in October of 2012,” said Christopher D. Maher, Chairman & CEO of OceanFirst Bank. “Five years later, there are still people and businesses working to fully recover from the devastation caused by Sandy. We thought this would be a fun event and great way to pull the region together to help raise money for those affected by Superstorm Sandy and the recent hurricanes.

“We appreciate the support we’ve received to date from the community and our sponsorship partners, New Jersey Natural Gas, Townsquare Media and Causeway,” Maher continued. “We look forward to shattering the Guinness World Record for Sand Angels, and raising much needed funds for these worthwhile organizations and the people and businesses they support.”

The OceanFirst Bank Sand Angels Guinness World Record event will be held rain or shine on the beach in Seaside Park, NJ, on October 28, 2017. If you cannot participate in the World Breaking effort, but would like to help, you can visit oceanfirstangels.com to see job descriptions for volunteers and stewards, or email cferro@oceanfirst.com with “Sandy Angels Helper” in the   subject line.  

MAKING A WORLD RECORD SAND ANGEL

Making a Sand Angel isn’t as easy as you may think. Guinness has some pretty strict rules and can disqualify you if they are not followed. Here are the steps to Making a Sandy Angel:

1. Line up next to each other or spread out around the area.
2. Stand far enough apart so that when you spread your arms you can’t touch the person next to you.
3. Fall gently into the sand onto your back.
4. Keep your entire body flat in the sand.
5. Brush your arms between your head and waist in a sweeping motion.
6. Move your legs apart as far as they will go and then together.
7. Repeat these motions (it’s like doing a jumping jack while lying down) until you have made indentations in the sand.
8. Someone will stand at your feet and pull on your arms to help you up.
9. Be sure to get up without stepping on your sand angel or making a handprint in the middle of it.
10. All participants must make their sand angel for at least 30 seconds.

Ocean County officials are joining with a growing chorus of concerned elected officials that are asking the state to help fix problems and possibly provide an alternative traffic pattern should the Thomas A. Mathis Bridge, which carries traffic east bound onto the northern barrier island, malfunction again.

“Certainly we understand an aging span like this can have its problems but the bridge has already malfunctioned three times this summer season causing extensive traffic backups and safety concerns throughout many areas of Ocean County,” said Vicari, who serves as liaison to tourism. “We need to quickly create an alternate traffic plan in order to keep traffic and emergency vehicles moving on and off that island.”

In a letter dated Aug. 4 to state Department of Transportation Commissioner Richard T. Hammer, Vicari noted he was joining with state 10th District Legislators to support their efforts and find a solution to the problem.

“On Saturday, (July 30) a problem with the bridge gate resulted in the bridge being closed to traffic for about two hours,” Vicari said. “No one needs to be reminded that this is the heaviest travel period on a summer weekend. People sat for hours in traffic. This is not how we want to present our County to our visitors and our residents.”

Freeholder Virginia E. Haines said the Route 37 bridges both serve as vital arteries in Ocean County moving thousands and thousands of people on and off the northern barrier islands.

“I agree with our 10th District legislators that the breakdowns are ‘unacceptable’ and the DOT needs to fix whatever is causing the malfunction as quickly as possible,” she said. “With tourists doubling our population, keeping this bridge in good working order is imperative to public safety.”

Ocean County Sheriff Michael G. Mastronardy said the Sheriff’s Department on Saturday insured resources were staged properly on the barrier island to make certain emergencies could be responded to during the time the bridge was closed to traffic.

“We worked with Toms River police and police on the barrier island,” Mastronardy said. “Our greatest concern is being able to respond to an emergency.”

Opened to traffic in 1950, the bridge, which is under the jurisdiction of the state DOT, is currently undergoing a $74 million federally-funded renovation project that includes replacing the existing bridge deck on the Mathis Bridge, which is 65 years old, make safety improvements to the barrier and railings, and repair and replace mechanical and electrical components that operate the moveable lift span, according to the DOT.

Construction is anticipated to take place for three seasons and is expected to be completed by the summer of 2018. The construction cycle requiring a full closure of the Mathis Bridge will be limited to Nov. 1 to April 30 each year, according to the DOT. During each of these construction cycles, summer traffic from approximately May 15 to Sept. 15 will not be affected and all three current lanes on both the east and west bound bridges will be open to traffic.

Vicari stated that since the eastbound bridge serves as a gateway for miles of beaches and businesses that rely on tourism, unplanned and unannounced bridge closures like the one on July 30 cause havoc for summer business owners many of whom are mom and pop family operated stores and cafes.

“When people are inconvenienced like this they will often think twice about coming back,” said Vicari during the Aug. 3 freeholder meeting. “We want people to know we are doing all we can to make certain the state is hearing our concerns and addressing them.”

Vicari noted the next five weeks are crucial to the tourism season.

“Tourism is a $4.6 billion economic engine in Ocean County that helps create more than 60,000 jobs,” Vicari said. “We cannot have a traffic problem in Toms River that because of a ripple effect, results in traffic tie-ups across several towns.”

Vicari said he has met with mayors and business owners on the barrier island after the bridge malfunction.

Freeholder Deputy Director Gerry P. Little said he applauds the efforts of the legislators along with local mayors and business owners to work together to correct this problem.

“We support the efforts of our legislators. We also believe an alternate traffic plan needs to be developed and in place in order to avoid these problems should another malfunction occur,” he said.

Vicari said alternatives are available.

“The state needs to implement them,” he said.

Vicari added that in the past he has advocated for a new fixed bridge to replace the aging span.

“The future may call for a new bridge to replace the one that is there,” Vicari said.

Ocean County residents can take advantage of securely disposing personal papers and documents through the county’s free Residential Document Shredding Program beginning in April.

“In 2015, a total of 94 tons or 188,000 pounds of documents were collected and shredded during our collection dates,” said Freeholder Gerry P. Little, who serves as liaison to the Ocean County Department of Solid Waste Management.

The program will be held in 18 different locations throughout Ocean County with the first date and location being 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., April 2 at the Southern Ocean County Recycling Center, 379 Haywood Road, Stafford Township.

“Ocean County is a large county and we make every effort to make this program easily accessible to all our citizens,” Little said. “With so much focus on identity theft this program helps to keep personal and important information out of the hands of people who may use it for the wrong reasons.”

“This program was first started in 2008 and has grown in popularity with our residents,” said Freeholder Director John P. Kelly, who also serves as Director of Law and Public Safety. “This Board of Freeholders is pleased to provide this service which, in addition to the environmental benefit, is an extra layer of security for our citizens.”

The work is being performed by Autoshred of Toms River.

Residents are not required to register for this free program and can bring six boxes or bags each day. The program is for all paper documents and paper forms. Paperclips and staples do not have to be removed.

Little noted the shredding unit features an automatic feeding and dumping system, which eliminates the need for human contact with a resident’s documents. Events will run their complete scheduled time or until the truck is full. The truck capacity is 8,000 pounds.

The following is a list of dates, times and locations for the Residential Document Shredding Program:

  • April 2, Southern Recycling Center, 379 Haywood Road, Stafford Township, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
