"Friends Group Thanks County for 2018 Tach Grant"
Dennisville — The Friends of Dennis Township Old School House Museum wish to thank the Cape May County Division of Culture and Heritage for awarding the Friends a matching grant in 2018 in the amount of $1000.
Monies from the grant are being used to purchase technology supplies for printers donated to the organization by generous members of the community including Donald Gooch, Thomas Laughlin, and Arc of Cape May County.
The Friends was organized in 2017 for the purpose of supporting the Dennis Township School House Museum, located in historic Dennisville.
This non-profit 501(c)(3) organization's mission is to raise funds and seek grants to help pay for repairs/paint for the exterior of the Old School House Museum and to explore possible uses for the Ludlam School and costs to restore the building. We also support and encourage the study and preservation of local history, with emphasis on Dennis Township but inclusive of other areas of interest in Cape May County.

2 New Radar Speed Signs 04/01/2017
A well done goes out to Dennisville Historic Home Owners Association for once again being proactive in the community. Read the following...
Well, finally the end of another long and arduous project! The 2 new radar speed signs have been installed by Cape May County. One is at the corner of Gatzmer and Main Street in front of Duke’s property. The other is at the corner of Hall and Petersburg Road on the Museum property. We listened to input and with the help of the township engineer arrived at these locations. The one at the museum still catches drivers coming from the direction of Rt. 47 and gives a second alert to drivers using Main Street to Petersburg to the school and beyond.
To recap, the DHHOA paid for one unit. Dennis Township paid for the other unit. The one at the RR was paid for and installed by the County a few years ago and I am aware that the lower left LED bulbs on that unit are not working. The county, through a shared services agreement with Dennis Township, paid for the poles and installed the 2 complete units. Dennisville is not getting special treatment, the DHHOA put our money behind the project with the Township. Please feel free to share this with your friends and relatives and ask them to honor us by respecting the 25 mph speed limit through the village.
