Best of Salem County Certificates & Signs

Hi Folks,

If you missed picking up your 2022 Best of Salem County Yard sign at the event, stop by our office to pick it up.

I've delivered most of the signs and certificates to folks who couldn't attend the event, but I still have Carneys Point and Pedricktown to deliver.

Since it's just me in the office and with many meetings on the schedule, I may not finish deliveries until Friday. If you'd like to pick up your certificates and sign prior, please stop by the office at:

429 Hollywood Avenue
Carneys Point, NJ 08069

I'm normally here between 8:30 am and 4pm, but may have offsite meetings.

Salem Junior Rams Fundraiser

Dear Business Owner:

Let me take this opportunity to introduce you to the newly established Salem Junior Rams Youth Football (SJRYF) team and Junior Rams Cheer Squad, supporting the growth and development of our youth’s athletic skills and providing opportunities for positive involvement with our community.

SJRYF team relies on the generosity of individual donations and local business sponsorships to offset equipment costs. Running youth sports teams can be expensive to operate and not all families can afford the full cost. We want all youth to have access to join us, regardless of their ability to pay.

We are asking your business to contribute $1,000 to help defray the cost of youth equipment, travel, registration, and associated fees. We are a newly established team, and the season is approaching fast. Help us make sure our youth have access to participate.

Your contribution is also a form of advertising your business; your business name will be included on the sponsorship page of our website We applaud the effort of businesses that continue to support this local community.
Our organization is a registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, and all donations and sponsorships are tax-deductible.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at 856-759-3244 or
On behalf of SJRYF team, we thank you,

Timothy Gregory
Director of Operations
