Calling all locals to "tell it like it was!" Absecon Lighthouse will feature four different themed "AC Inlet" story panels in our museum each week this summer from June 21st through September 10th.

Greeting from Atlantic City Postcard

Planters PeanutInspired by visitor stories and comments heard over the years of personal accounts of growing up or living in the Inlet, this storytelling series is a way to share the rich history of Atlantic City with visitors and residents alike.

Steeplechase PierLocals are encouraged to write or type a one page story and submit it to Absecon Lighthouse at 31 S. Rhode Island Ave., AC, NJ 08401. Submitted stories can also include photos and other memorabilia which will be displayed along with your story. All articles will be returned to the owner. The impetus for this "Summer of Atlantic City Inlet Storytelling" is the director of the lighthouse remarking, "I wish we had a nickel for every Inlet story" each time she heard one; they are that numerous! Hence, this fundraiser was born. An "Inlet Story Wish I had a Nickel Jar (or more!)" will be set up through the summer at the storytelling display station.

Guidelines: family friendly stories, one page, typed preferred.

Photos/Memorabilia: must be OK to tape or lightly glue to a display panel - all materials will be returned.

Story deadline: Friday, June 16th, 1pm.

Please include your name, address, and phone number with your submission.
