Oct. 10 will be your opportunity to learn what goes on behind the gate at the end of Pennsylvania Avenue when Lt. Commander Scott Rae, USCG Regimental Commander, is our guest speaker. You won’t want to miss the Commander’s presentation about the history and mission of this important facility. TRACEN Cape May is the ONLY training facility for Coast Guard recruits in the nation and the Commander will also touch on recruit training. This is a rare opportunity to learn about this important aspect of our Cape May Community.
Rock and Roll comes to the Center on October 17th when the legendary “Philly Bill” Culp of “WIBBAGE” radio 94.3 will be our special guest.

For those who grew up in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s WIBBAGE radio 94.3 has established itself as our highway back to the “good-old-days.”
