Join us, and many other local organizations, on Monday May 25th, as we Thank the men and women in our Nation's Armed Forces that paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms! We will honor them with a parade down Main Street from St Mary's Church to Veterans Plaza, at the intersection of Route 322 and Main Street. Once at the Memorial a Wreath Laying Ceremony will take place. The parade starts at 11AM. Please line Main Street for the parade then join us for the Ceremony at Veterans Plaza to say Thank You!
Summer Fire Safety
Summer fire season is upon us. We would like to remind everyone that open, uncontrolled backyard fires are illegal. Also make sure your BBQ grills are in proper working order and far enough away from any structures to prevent radiant heat from lighting anything on fire.
-In 2012, 16,900 patients went to emergency rooms because of injuries involving grills.
-One of every six (16%) home structure fires in which grills were involved in ignition, something that could catch fire was too close to the grill.
-Overall, leaks or breaks were factors in one of every five reported grill fires.
-Gas grills contribute to a higher number of home fires overall than their charcoal counterparts.
