It 's a local summer Friday morning and we are live at the New Jersey Natural Gas Asbury Park Boardwalk Studio to help kick off the Jersey Shore weekend.

There are no people who deserve more summer than the great people of the Jersey Shore, and of course, Asbury Park is one of the towns giving you exactly that by extending summer through the end of this month.

Now we all know that we consider this month local summer every year, but this year Asbury Park is making it official and we are so happy about that and so proud to be out here with our friends at New Jersey Natural Gas.

The beaches here in Asbury Park will be open until Septemnber 30th, so hold on to those beach badges, because you'll need them. Lifeguards will be on duty until the end of the month as well.

So, if you haven't had a chance to enjoy the experience of a gorgeous early summer morning on the boardwalk or the beach in Asbury Park, you have been granted another opportunity. Don't let it pass you by.

The crew is here. Come and say hello to me and Liz and Jimmy, and of course, Tom Hayes, the wonderful representative of New Jersey Natural Gas, will continue to update us throughout the morning on the great work community groups are doing for our area.

We are really rooting for all the local businesses at the Jersey Shore, and we hope this will be a really good weekend for all. We all really need it, and we all really deserve it.
