Residents to share TR history

Ocean County Library will present a discussion about the history and people of early- and mid-20th century Toms River Saturday June 1 in the Toms River branch.

Local journalist and long-time Toms River resident Don Bennett will moderate “Toms River Talks: A Living Oral History Event.”

The panelists include Barbara Carlino, Oscar Cradle, Manuel Hirshblond, Dave Johnson, Ferd Klebold, Rev. Larry Mattox and Mary Lou Sutton.

The panelists, who grew up, lived, worked and played in Toms River, will discuss events they witnessed that helped shape Toms River into the town it has become.

Do you have questions about some of the quirky characters that inhabited the county seat? Ever wonder how Toms River has changed since the Garden State Parkway opened it up fifty years ago? Or maybe you have some stories of your own to tell.

Join the fun with your questions and answers. The two-hour discussion will begin at 2 p.m.

The program is free and open to the public. Please note that it will be video recorded and archived so that future generations will be able to access these insights into Toms River history. It may also appear on the Internet.

Seating is limited so register by calling the operator at (732) 349-6200 or online at the library Web site , then click on the events icon.
