Those of us who grew up in this vibrant community remember the days, before the pound sign was little more than an overlooked button on our phone, when we cheered on our local sports teams to the sound of the feel-good cheer “We Are TR!”

Through a community-wide search in 2015 to find the best hashtag to represent our town, #WeAreTR was born!

Since that time, the Greater Toms River Chamber of Commerce has kept a social pulse on TR to ensure we advocate for, celebrate, and educate our residents and visitors.

Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.

From the onset, our goals were to create an energetic partnership between residents, businesses, government, nonprofits, and visitors to engender a passion about making Toms River the best community in which to live, work, and play.

We aim to encourage residents, young and old, business owners, new, longstanding, and future, to love Toms River by seeing it at, and contributing to, it being its best.
