On Thursday, October 10, we (Pam and Charlie Horner) will be honored as “Asbury Heroes” by the Asbury Park Historical Society.  We have been selected to jointly receive the organizations’ Distinguished Historian Award for our continuing work to preserve the legacy of music from the city’s West Side. The presentation will take place from 6 – 9 PM at the Society’s awards dinner at Jimmy’s Italian Restaurant, 1405 Asbury Avenue, Asbury Park, NJ. Tickets are $75 per person and include dinner and can be purchased on the APHS website, http://www.aphistoricalsociety.org/   There will be a cash bar.  The public is invited.  Pam and I are grateful for the recognition and are working hard on our two volume book on Asbury Park West Side Music (1880 – 1980). We love Asbury Park and thank the APHS for all they do to preserve its history.
