Pascarella "Tailors" Effort to Keep Main Street Flowers Fresh

CHATHAM, NJ - Local tailor Joe Pascarella loves Chatham. Since 1952, he has been providing specialty tailoring services and alterations for men, women and children at his shop on South Passaic Avenue.
As a long-time local business owner, Pascarella observed and appreciated the recent beautification efforts of Chatham’s local Girl Scout Troops, who donated and planted the annual flowers in the 22 decorative planters that span the Downtown Business District during the Spring Clean event held on May 3. 
In past years, Pascarella has seen many of these plantings dry up long before their season was over, due to lack of watering during the hot summer months. While he made sure the planters close to his shop thrived, others didn’t fare as well. This year he decided to change that.
Shortly after the Spring Clean event, Pascarella reached out to the Spring Clean Steering Committee, requesting a method to transport multiple watering cans so that he could water the planters being neglected.Through the combined efforts of intern Margie Lowe and the Department of Public works, a little red wagon was acquired and detailed especially for Pascarella.

Delivery of the wagon took place shortly after and it was put to immediate use.
To volunteer with your business, organization, or family; or for more information on Spring Clean 2015 scheduled for May 2 between 8 am to 1 pm , please visit or contact; 973-635-0674 x 200.

December 4, 2016

The Bridges "Love Letter" is an over 10-year tradition started to make sure that every part of a Bridges Outreach run, from the donation of a pound of turkey to the decorating of a bag is acknowledged. The letter takes every participant on the road with the crew to know where that food goes and that every one involved is essential.
