It was a great time had by all!
The NJPPC has so many huge hearts!
I am proud to report that the 2006 Shore Dreams For Kids was a HUGE SUCCESS!!!
The reason why it was a such a huge success was because the hard work and dedication of the principal organizers:
Pete Mazzo, Rob Cline, Brian Meade, Val Fiorillo & Geralyn Monroe
and the generosity of all of the sponsors, donors, NJPPC land and boat volunteers, car clubs, boat racers, local Elks Clubs, Special Olympics and all other attendees!

We had a great day. The looks on the kidís faces, their enthusiasm and the comments are priceless. Im always impressed by how many want to go "FASTER".....you sure?........"Yes FASTER" Thanks to Lucididee "Crazy Kitty Cat" for helping me out on my boat, "Crazy Captain Dave" Stecz20, and first mate "McDee" JoeD for letting me hop in with them after one of my impellers started to go.
Pete, Rob, Brian, Val, Geralyn, Dave and others did a fantastic job organizing the event which we will support every year and encourage others to do so as well.
It was a great weekend.
This sounds like a great event!!! Keep up the good work, and keep putting smiles on the kids faces.
As we all know, an event like this takes a lot of time and planning for it all to come together. I hope you had a chance to step back and enjoy your results. Remember, good things come to good people... you should all be admired for your contributions to helping those less fortunate.
My 1st time there...........was a great time, and my wife and I will
certainly be back next year.
Thanks to everyone for their hard work............we did the easy part
.......just driving the boat
My wife and I truly had a great time helping out.Everybody worked hard to do what needed to be done and I heard no complaint's.The guys that organize the event really have their handsful to top this years shore dreams.
