Welcome to the website of Penngrove Proud. We are a community magazine for and about Penngrove, and our local area, our culture, our business and our community. We hope you enjoy it!
The Proud salutes our history, where we’ve been and where we’re going, including articles on the early days of the town, the people that helped to make it to grow; historic and interesting buildings and homes; and the cultural evolution that has made Penngrove such a special place to live, work and raise families.
“Sips, Savors and Sounds” is a round-up of eating, drinking and listening, with news updates from our local array of cafes, restaurants, bars and taverns, from local music and art shows to the latest new items on the menu. This section has recently been expanded to include live local entertainment listings, plus live show and restaurant reviews.
The Proud will also announce and cover local Penngrove hometown happenings, including social, cultural and business events of interest, from our Penngrove Panthers and other Penngrove Elementary school news to local yoga classes, how-to workshops, childcare and the like, in the “Inside Penngrove” column. If you have an event, class, or something of community interest you would like to have listed, just give us a call or send an email.
“In Their Own Words” is a very special regular column in which Penngrove’s senior and longtime residents and business owners will share their first-person memories of Penngrove’s rich and fascinating past and, in so doing, building an oral history archive of the town, with recollections and insights into the founding families and where they are now, creating an important resource for students and local historians as well as an invaluable legacy for all of Penngrove’s future citizens. Our beautifully designed, easy to read magazine is anchored by a full color double page center-fold Illustrated map of Penngrove merchants
– detailing individually, street by street, all of our local businesses and points of interest, and how to reach them.
is your community magazine, something I hope you can feel a part of,
with which you are proud to be associated, and which comes to represent
both the voice and the heart of our very special little town.
I want to
include your voice and hear what you have to say. Lynda Sutton-Smith, Publisher
