The 187 recruits at Cape May’s Training Center for the United States Coast Guard were the beneficiaries of the Jersey Cape Military Spouses’ Club ‘s Adopt-a-Recruit program. Now in its third year, the wives gather together a few days before and stuff stockings for the recruits filled with gift cards, hair gel, other necessities, some candy bars and notes from home. An added treat this year – cookies and hot chocolate.
Cape May is ready for the holidays! We took the vote to Facebook and asked our fans to determine who’s got the best lights in town. The Dormer House won hands down.

Congress Hall kicked off their holiday celebrations with their annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony and Holiday Concert on December 6th. This year’s tree is an impressive 32-foot Blue Spruce, which was donated by the Brinkman family of North Cape May.
Recognize this building? If not, that’s okay. It looks pretty different from how it did a few months ago. This is the site of the former Bank Street Wawa, which sat empty since 2008. The building is undergoing a complete makeover to become the new location for Homestead Real Estate. What do you think about it?
