It’s now a time when we can bond and put smiles on some faces of those who have served their country and in some cases paid a heavy sacrifice. The event last only 3 to 4 hours.

The Association gives one on one assistance along with supplying all the food, beverages, snacks, tackle and bait along with a thank you gift from NJBBA for their service (blanket, hat, shirts, sweats etc).

The trip is to a fishing pier in Stone Harbor, the town supplies a handi-cap Joni and the use of their pavilion on hot days. All proceeds come from donations; the event is organized by  Director Ron Patten

August 11, 2012, Swannie Gay

Swannie Gay, Beach Buggy Member # 4103. Swannie, a retired 17 year veteran of our Naval Forces was responsible for starting the NJBBA’s take the Vets fishing program 10 years ago. She collected clothing for the 200+ vets at the home in Vineland and wanting to do more, she joined with Ron Patten of the NJBBA to create the event which has become a twice a year event. Swannie loved fishing and was a caregiver to any stray animals who were lucky enough to come her way. She leaves her three sons, Edward, John, and Michael, 10 grandchildren, 4 great grandchildren, and a special friend and companion Ron Patten. Ron with NJBBA honors her memory by carrying on her commitment to the Vets. We are all thankful to Swannie for giving us the opportunity to "give back" to our courageous men and women. All who volunteer always leave with a new respect for our vets and with a renewed commitment to continue the fishing events.
