Oct 2012 – A Landmark Month for JSJBF
In this month of October 2012, JSJBF planned to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of its beginning. However, nature and the fates intervened with Super Storm Sandy. With much discussion, and at the last minute, it was decided to cancel and reschedule for February 2013. It was thought that a celebration of this type could lift the spirits of many who were still suffering in the aftermath of the storm. It was to be held at the Dauphin Grille in Asbury Park.
