Greetings to you from the Township of Old Bridge, voted one of the safest cities to raise a family. Old Bridge is located centrally between the city and the shore, and is one of the most sought after places to live, work and raise a family, giving our residents the opportunity to go to a Broadway show or to spend a day at the races or at the beach. Something for everyone to enjoy!
Our Township offers many diverse programs for all of our residents, no matter what the age. For our younger families who work, the Before and After Care program provides our children a safe and supervised environment prior and after school. We also offer Little League Baseball, Football, Soccer, Hockey and Lacrosse Leagues here in town for all of our youth. In case you aren’t aware, our Township offers our Camp Robin Program which provides Therapeutic Recreation for our disabled citizens for both our special youths and adults. Some of the activities which are offered for participants ages three-adult involve many sports programs ice skating, swimming, and basketball to mention a few. Arts & crafts and exercise programs, as well as a Summer Robin day camp program for children ages seven through twenty-one. It is an absolutely spectacular program!
Our Senior Center, accredited by the National Institute of Senior Centers, provides a multitude of programs and activities for our senior community. They are provided with exercise activities, as well as educational seminars on health and wellness. The exercise program is a fantastic offering “Move to the Groove”, Aerobic Chair Dancing and Yoga, to name a few, all of which really keep our seniors on their toes, happy and active, which I have seen for myself and really enjoy! There is also an arts and crafts program offering painting and sketching classes, as well as needle point which really displays our seniors’ artistic abilities. We had a very beautiful art show here and the seniors who were involved were just beaming with pride!
Old Bridge is a dynamic place to do business. Our Business Alliance has provided a venue for the numerous businesses in town to network and I am extremely happy to report to you that Steve Mamakas, Director of Economic Development and myself received the NJ Biz.com Award for the creation of the Old Bridge Business Alliance. It has been very successful and created a welcoming environment for many businesses and we look forward to many more coming to our town. We have also partnered with UBER to provide the “SAFE RIDE ” program which offers free rides every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 9pm to 2am from participating locations to the resident’s home within the Township of Old Bridge if the need arises.
It is my honor and pleasure to serve as your Mayor in the Township of Old Bridge and think Old Bridge all the time!!!
