Belmar’s New Taylor Pavilion: Picture-Perfect Place for Mayor’s Ball

Finishing touches are being made to the new Taylor Pavilion, which is slated to be open to host the Sixth Annual Mayor’s Ball on Friday, June 23.

BELMAR, NJ — The new Taylor Pavilion will be the venue for the Sixth Annual Mayor’s Ball, to be held on Friday, June 23 from 6 to 10 p.m.

Since the old pavilion, which was destroyed during Superstorm Sandy in 2012, could not accommodate the event in the past, anticipation is building over having this year’s ball at the soon-to-open boardwalk structure that overlooks the Fifth Avenue beach.

 “It will be something special — to have the Mayor’s Ball at Taylor Pavilion for the first time,” said Mayor Matthew Doherty. “It will be a great opportunity to get together in a relaxed atmosphere and enjoy each other’s company.”

Weather permitting, attendees will be able to watch the sunset over the ocean, making for an ideal backdrop for photo-taking. 

Honoring Belmar’s Citizen of the Year will highlight the festivities. Nominations currently are being accepted for the annual award, which recognizes a borough resident who “goes above and beyond in their daily life for the benefit of the community.”

The honoree will be announced on Friday, May 19, joining an elite club of past recipients that includes Claire Deicke, George Komitas, Brian and the late Jane Magovern, Eugene Murray, Thomas Volker, Belmar First Aid Squad and Belmar Woman’s Club.

Attire is “beach chic” for the Mayor’s Ball, which will culminate with a bonfire on the beach.

Proceeds from the gala will benefit the Belmar Youth Club, a Recreation Department program for students in grades 3 through 8 who live in Belmar or Lake Como, or attend Belmar Elementary School or St. Rose Grammar School.

Held every Saturday evening from November through March at the Recreation Gym, the club offers children the opportunity to get together with friends or participate in organized games in a structured, safe and supervised environment.

Tickets for the gala are priced at $1,250 for a table of 10, and sponsorships are available at $5,000.

On Thursday, June 22, the Third Annual Children’s Ball will be held at Taylor Pavilion from 6 to 8 p.m. All Belmar school-aged children are welcome to that fun-filled event, which came to fruition after Hannah Doherty, daughter of Mayor Doherty, asked her parents why she couldn’t accompany them to the “adult” ball three years ago.

U.S. Air Traffic Control Isn’t Working; Here's How to Fix It

September 7, 2017

For over 30 years, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has tried — and failed — to modernize America’s woefully dysfunctional air traffic control system (ATC). It is time to get ATC out from under the thumbs of federal bureaucrats and partisan politicians, and create a completely new structure that will get U.S. air traffic moving.

American ATC is stuck in the 1950s.
