STAFFORD - The Stafford Historical Society and Stafford Recreation are sponsoring the Summer 2020 Concert Series at Manahawkin Lake. 

This Monday, July 20 the Flim Flam Band — an Outlaw, hippie, California, vintage country band is performing.  The concert begins at 7 p.m. 

There is no charge, but a donation is appreciated to help out the Stafford Township Historical Society. These donations help the organization continue their mission of the restoration and preservation of the Old Stone Store, Railroad Station and Cultural Center (a Revolutionary War era church). The donations also help  help to cover the cost of the concerts and assist the Historical Society.
