MAYOR'S MESSAGE
A Message From Mayor Leonard Desiderio

As I have said in the past, the fun doesn’t end on Labor Day here in Sea Isle City, because we have many terrific events happening throughout the year. Case in point, on Saturday, September 7, we held our second annual Wedding Vow Renewal Ceremony at Excursion Park, where more than 30 married couples repeated their wedding vows and renewed their love for one another in their favorite seashore town. It’s always amazing to hear how many people have special connections to this community – and how much they enjoy being in Sea Isle City – and I am very grateful to all of the “love birds” who participated in this year’s wedding vow event!
