The group: Gloucester City Sail. The mission: to give local youth, many of whom have never even been on a boat before, the opportunity to experience being out on the water and learning about the river and its surrounding areas.
When I decided to undertake this blog one of the things I hoped to accomplish was to find the "funny and fabulous" people that make us "really like" NJ. I could think of nobody funnier or more fabulous than the inspiration for "I Really Like NJ", the creator of the New Jersey Song and the founder and director of our community partner, Sara O'Brien. Through her grassroots non-profit CommunityRocks! and her work with The Tyanna Foundation, her family's breast cancer charity, she works tirelessly to help children and families throughout NJ.
