WIN A FULL SET of Stone Harbor Beach Tags!  The Stone Harbor Museum is raffling off a full set of Stone Harbor beach tags, including the rare 1971 tag, the very first year tags were required.  The set of 47 tags is mounted and framed, ready for display.  Recent tags typically sell for a nominal sum, while early tags command a huge premium, and assembling a complete set is exceptionally difficult.  Proceeds from the raffle will help the museum cover expenses.  To purchase a $10 raffle ticket, contact the museum at 609-368-7500 before they sell out.  The winning ticket will be drawn during the Stone Harbor Christmas Parade Thanksgiving Weekend.
 
MORE GAS MAINS will be installed in Avalon this winter, as older mains are replaced.  50,000 feet of new mains will be installed, mostly in the north end of the borough.  Homeowners will be notified as work progresses and lateral connections are made.  Work is to be completed (including patched streets) prior to the 2019 summer season, with final paving to occur in the fall.
 

Boats fill the slips at Commodore Bay Marina in Avalon.
 
AVALON ACHIEVES AAA BOND RATING:  Once again Avalon has achieved a AAA bond rating from Standard & Poors, having maintained that rating for over a decade.  The S&P rating was based on Avalon’s strong liquidity, institutional framework, and available fund balance.  The AAA rating helps save taxpayers money when the borough borrows for capital projects.
 
MORE BALD EAGLES have been spotted along the Delaware Bay according to an Atlantic City Press article as well as areas of Atlantic County.  Some were spotted behind Seven Mile Island last week.  Bald eagles have rebounded in recent years with 178 nesting pairs counted in 2017.
 
THE CAPE MAY MONARCH MONITORING PROJECT reported increased numbers of monarchs at the end of October, after more modest counts earlier.  This year’s counts have still been down compared to last year, though prevailing winds during the migration season may have diverted monarchs further west than usual.  For an article on the monarch count, click here:  https://www.pressofatlanticcity.com/news/breaking/cape-may-monarch-numbers-solid-this-year-but-lower-than/article_2d867382-cee5-55d2-b237-24eeff2ac7d3.html
