Mayor Susan Cohen offered the following comments, “The photos that were submitted were great. I was very impressed how our resident photographers were able to find such imaginative ways to incorporate shadows and silhouettes.  You could tell some of these shadow and silhouette effects were purposeful and some were beautiful, unexpected accents.   I want to thank the Arts Council for again sponsoring the contest and finding the resources to provide awards.  Lastly, I want to thank all of the participants and I and my fellow Township Committee members look forward to next year’s competition.” 

The photos will be on display in Town Hall during the month of July and August and will also be available for viewing on the Township website -   For more information please contact the Health Department at 732-446-8345.
