BAYONNE TO HAVE EARTH DAY CLEAN-UP AT HOME ON SATURDAY, APRIL 25

            Bayonne Mayor Jimmy Davis announced that the City of Bayonne will have an Earth Day Clean-Up At Home on Saturday, April 25, with a rain date of Sunday, April 26.  Mayor Davis said, “Earlier this year, we had big plans for a citywide Earth Day clean-up that would have involved groups of people working together, followed by a major celebration.  Due to the Coronavirus, those plans had to be cancelled.”  Mayor Davis continued, “We can still honor Earth Day.  Although we cancelled plans for doing something big leading to a party at DiDomenico-16th Street Park, we can still do something local and effective.  Put on a face mask and gloves, step outside, and clean up around your own home or business.  Let’s try to keep at least the front of our properties tidy. This can make a big difference for our neighborhoods.”

Staten Island-Bayonne Aerial Gondola
Aerial Gondola considered for Staten Island Bayonne connection may not necessarily looks like this

 Bayonne Mayor James Davis is excited to announce that he has signed on to support the proposed Staten Island to Bayonne Aerial Gondola.

Exhibit on The Jellybeans Vocal Group at the Bayonne Library

 

      The Jelly Beans     

Mayor Jimmy Davis announced that the Bayonne Free Public Library is hosting an exhibit on The Jellybeans, a former local elementary school vocal group. The exhibit will run through the first half of July.  The Jellybeans, a girl group in the style of the 1960’s, was formed at Our Lady of Mercy Academy in Jersey City while the girls were in the 6th grade.  The group continued through the 8th grade. Their musical director and songwriter was Anthony Coviello.  He created tunes with complex vocals and harmonies which the girls performed and recorded. The group produced three CD’s: Back in School (2010), No Time for a Bad Day (2011), and Look at Us Now (2012).  The CD’s were produced with musical accompaniment by Steve LoPresto, a member of the B Street Band, a Bruce Springsteen tribute group. Mr. Coviello and The Jellybeans have donated two copies each of their CD’s to the library. The exhibit is on the second floor of the library, which is located at 31st Street and Avenue C in Bayonne.

 

            The Jellybeans sang pop tunes that offer family-friendly lyrics for all age groups.  Their music can be found now on YouTube, CD Baby, Pandora, Spotify, iTunes, and Amazon.  The group’s website is Jellybeansongs.com.
