  TOMS RIVER – Members of the Toms River Public Works Clean Communities division helped clean up the Blue Star Memorial Highway Garden in advance of Memorial Day.

  The garden is located at Winding River Park on Route 37. It was originally sponsored by the Garden Club of Toms River as well as the Rotary Club and American Legion Post 129 as a tribute to the armed forces.

  “We wanted to make sure this area was freshened up to show proper respect for our veterans this Memorial Day Holiday,” said Mayor Maurice Hill, who is a veteran. “Employees Frank Cilino and Cody Williams did a fantastic job weeding and spreading fresh mulch.”
