The 2023 Community Spirit Award was given to 7-year-old Vivienne Leigh Vesper, of Lower Township, for her unique contribution of "For Kids, By Kids" programming at the Museum of Cape May County. Ms. Vesper created and implemented two kids’ programs at the Museum: "Viv's Kids Donation Corner" and "Skratty's Snacky Scavenger Hunt". Both programs help the Museum engage visiting children with local history.
