HIGHLANDS, NJ - Taking a well deserved break from the endless cleanup in Highlands, residents came out to Huddy Park today to enjoy food and music and to share their stories with neighbors at the Hope for Highlands celebration.

The spontaneous brain-child of several local business leaders; Douglas Lentz, owner of Inlet Cafe and the Original Oyster, helped lead the effort by lining up several borough businesses, including Bahrs, Chilango's, Inlet Cafe, SeaStreak, ShoreGrafx and many others to provide food for the day. Lentz lost both his businesses and a home when flooding from Superstorm Sandy swept into Highlands. He says he will reopen the Inlet Cafe, but he is not sure about the reopening of the Original Oyster. There was no doubt about the feeling of goodwill spread through the crowd. "It's a good day," said Lentz.
