The Two River Council of Mayors held its annual holiday party Dec. 15. The charming Little Silver Train Station once again provided the cozy setting for this festive affair as an elite group of mayors, former mayors, their families and select guests enjoyed holiday cheer, a tasty array of cocktail nibbles and lively conversation.

The event was attended by the mayors of many of the area towns including Shrewsbury Mayor Erik Anderson, Rumson Mayor Joe Hemphill, Fair Haven Mayor Ben Lucarelli, former Middletown Mayor and Freeholder Gerard Sharfenberger, Middletown Mayor Tony Perry, Little Silver Mayor Bob Neff and former Sea Bright mayor Dina Long. Also attending were mayors of Monmouth Beach Sue Howard, Tinton Falls Mayor Gary Baldwin, Oceanport Mayor Jay Coffey and West Long Branch Mayor Janet Tucci. Joining in the holiday fun were Senator Declan O’Scanlon, former mayor of Shrewsbury Don Burden, former mayor of Fair Haven David Hinton and former Eatontown mayor Gerry Tarantolo.
