Galloway Twp Magnus Mud Run June 2015

The Galloway Patriot held its first Magnus Mud Run of 2015 on June 13th at the Galloway Twp. Municipal Complex.  There was quite a crowd and great weather.  For the first time everyone participated in a flag ceremony led by the Absecon VFW color guard.  The Absecon VFW color guard is considered to be one of the best in the state and presented the colors as well as fired a ceremonial shot into the air to begin the event.

The Galloway Fire Department joined the children on the field right at the beginning of the event immediately after quickly extinguishing a raging car fire at the Pitney Road Wawa.  We are very proud of our fire department and admire the great professionalism they exhibit.

Thanks to all our volunteers, Clayton Self Storage & Home Depot.

Enjoy the photos.

2015 Vigneto Rally

The Galloway Patriot’s annual exotic car show, the “Vigneto Rally” was a great success this year.  The event was partly held at the Rams Head Inn on June 7th.  Exotic car owners and enthusiasts enjoyed a special champagne brunch and spent time viewing the many cars in attendance.

There were a number of Ferraris and Aston Martins including vintage examples.  There were also exotics such as a GT40, Mercedes Gullwing, Porsches, Maseratis and many more.

Attendees also enjoyed touring a private collection of rare and exotic cars while sipping champagne provided by the Renault Winery.

We hope you enjoy the photographs from the event.

The Galloway Patriot newspaper produces many events in Galloway.  These events exhibit all Galloway Twp. has to offer while bringing business into our township.

Galloway Patriot Magnus Mud Run

The Magnus Mud Run children’s obstacle course produced by the Galloway Patriot newspaper and Galloway Twp. is tomorrow at 11am at the Galloway Twp. Municipal Complex on Jimmie Leeds Rd.

The event is FREE for children between 3 and 8 years old.  Children must be accompanied by a parent.  It’s a good idea to bring a towel and clean clothes just in case.

The course is great fun for the kids while it encourages fitness and builds confidence.   The Galloway Fire Dept. gives a big hand by bringing fire trucks and getting kids hosed off.  The Township’s public works people help out by making sure we have a nice big pile of dirt for the last obstacle.

Tell everyone that you know with a 3 to 8 year old to be there for the fun.

We would like to thank all the volunteers and sponsors including, Clayton Self Storage and Home Depot.

Jaime & Chuck Knutson, Publishers of the Galloway Patriot newspaper, geared up with fellow Marines for Memorial Day events

The Galloway Patriot was proud to participate in the Memorial Day events at the Galloway-Absecon VFW Post, the Absecon Parade and the Field of Dreams.  The day started with a memorial service and wreath dedication at the VFW Post on the White Horse Pike.  The celebrated color guard of our local VFW honored the fallen with a 21 gun salute and the post chaplain played taps.

The Memorial Day parade worked its way through the streets of Absecon and included many veteran’s organization’s along with fire, police, rescue, marching bands and many other groups paying tribute to those who gave their lives for freedom.

The Galloway Patriot newspaper entered our military vehicles in the parade again this year.  We designed a memorial tribute that many were very moved by.  A black Humvee with tactical trailer was used as a “gun carriage” with a simulated flag draped casket placed upon it along with a “fallen soldier cross”.

2015 Absecon Memorial Day Parade 2

The Field of Dreams ceremony received national attention due to the placement of over 15,000 American flags representing each and every New Jersey resident that gave their life for their country.

We hope that you had time to honor our nations hero’s and to reflect upon the sacrifice so many have made to protect us.
