MARGATE — The Margate-Longport Municipal Alliance held its fourth annual barbecue Friday, Oct. 6, on the athletic field at Eugene A. Tighe Middle School.
The family-friendly event brought out children from the two communities who attend the Margate public schools to hear an important message about lifestyle choices. The event promoted healthy living without drugs and alcohol.
John DiNicola, superintendent of the Margate schools and Municipal Alliance chairman, said the event is paid for through a grant funded by fines imposed on those convicted of drug offenses.
Hundreds of children, parents and grandparents attended the event, which featured hot dogs, hamburgers, DJ TracyTrane, games, a bubble machine and a bonfire tended by the Margate City Fire Department.
