Memorial Day

Monday May 28th is Memorial Day

    As we unofficially welcome the Summer season with a long Holiday weekend full of yard work, beach trips, barbeques and fun times please take a moment to remember those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. For many it is a somber day remembering the smiling faces of loved ones that never came home.

Please join us in honoring these Brave Men and Women on Main Street Monday morning as a Memorial Day Parade travels from Saint Marys Church to the Memorial at 322 & Main Street. Once at the memorial there will be a small wreath laying ceremony.

 

Forest Fire Season

Forest fire season is upon us. Is your house protected? If you own the tree line near your house make sure the brush is maintained and you have about 100 feet of space is between your house and any brush or trees. This buffer will help prevent a fire from jumping from the woods to your house. Also make sure things like your winter log pile are not up against the house. Finally remember that open burns, without a permit from the New Jersey Forest Fire Service, are not permitted.
