La Mer Beachfront Resort in Cape May celebrated 50 years in business on Tuesday, Oct. 22. State and local officials joined the Andy family in the celebration and congratulated them on marking five decades of business in Cape May.

The special ceremony at the shorefront property reflected on the past, spoke on the present, and looked forward to the future of the resort. Jeffrey Vasser, executive director of New Jersey Tourism, Cape May Mayor Clarence “Chuck” Lear, and other local and regional officials were on hand to celebrate this major milestone. A time capsule containing memorabilia and photos submitted by long-time guests will be buried on the property and will be unearthed on the resort's 100th anniversary.
