Community Arts Program

HISTORY OF THE COMMUNITY ARTS PROGRAM (CAP)

In 2000 a new group was formed to continue the twenty-five year old tradition of the Beach Haven Bicentennial Park Association’s free “Concerts in the Park”. A few citizens founded the non-profit Beach Haven Community Arts Program (CAP) to “develop policies, activities, and actions that enhance the overall desirability and beauty of Beach Haven, and to advance year-round cultural activities and events within the Borough”.

In the ensuing years, CAP has not only arranged eleven to fifteen free “Concerts on the Green” each summer, but has also organized and presented annual Memorial Day and Veterans Day community programs, as well as a holiday tree-lighting celebration. In addition, CAP has helped with the beautification of Veterans Memorial Park, adding comfortable benches and brick walkways. CAP sponsors an annual scholarship for a student at Southern Regional High School who plans to pursue a career in the arts. Donations for the purchase of musical instruments and the provision of tuition at a series of programs at the LBI Foundation of the Arts and Sciences have assisted students at the Beach Haven Elementary School.

The members of the Beach Haven Community Arts Program would like to extend our sincere thanks to all of the residents, visitors and businesses that have supported our activities. With concert sponsorship by local businesses, individuals and non-profit groups, with ads in our weekly programs, with contributions from the public at our concerts and for Memorial Bricks, and with the hard work of volunteers and the Borough Public Works employees, the Beach Haven Community Arts Program has thrived. Again we extend thanks for helping us prove that if citizens of a community work together, they can accomplish a great deal.
