So many faces

Hammonton has been embracing its major community events with significant participation in the last two months, and the faces on the pages of The Gazette have shown Hammontonians are engaged with their community.


Perhaps it is due to the cooped-up nature of the lockdowns during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Maybe it would have happened anyway. Either way, the reality is Hammonton is a town that has always prided itself on people connecting with the community at large.


If you read our recent special supplements, you saw so many faces of graduates, high school athletes, members of the Hammonton Little League, festivalgoers at the Red, White and Blueberry Festival, attendees of the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and Hammy Award winners. Hundreds and hundreds of faces, all featured in The Gazette.


In addition to those special supplements, we continue to feature many articles and photographs of meetings, smaller events, special occasions and achievements by residents. The town is filled with life and the life of the town is what we present on the pages of this newspaper, every week of the year.


When you look at all the faces in the paper this week and throughout the year, remember we celebrate Hammonton and Hammontonians because both are always worth celebrating. It’s a wonderful town and we enjoy creating a newspaper for our readers that reflects that fact.


So, when you look at the faces on our pages, remember that at its heart, The Gazette has always been and will always be a Hammonton paper.
