Many Hands

This year’s township reorganization meeting, a roughly two-hour event held on New Year’s Day at the Senior/Community Center, saw the Council welcome three members back after winning reelection; bid a fond farewell to another who is soon moving from town; and install a new mayor and deputy mayor. Hundreds of volunteers were appointed or reappointed to various committees.

That a packed crowd filled the building to capacity on a morning when some in attendance were undoubtedly not feeling their best after a late night of New Year’s celebration is a shining example of what makes this township so special:

Engagement. Activism. Stewardship. Participation. Responsibility.

And To All A Good Night

The Camuso elves have begun the arduous task of taking down the annual holiday display and putting it away until next year. Nearly 250 gingerbread men were sold this year to help defray the costs of the exhibit. Here, some of the "elves" are shown removing the gingerbread men and alphabetizing them to make collection easier. Below, the gingerbread men stand in formation, ready for pickup. They may be collected and taken home to their families now.
