FANWOOD, NJ -- Fanwood marked its 25th Year of Earth Day observances with Clean Community Day activities on Saturday, April 26, 2014. Mayor Colleen Mahr, Union Co. Freeholder Al Mirabella, and U.S. Rep. Rush Holt (D-NJ) were among the army of workers who helped clean the borough.

Volunteers of all ages -- including senior citizens, Boy Scouts, and Buddhist monks -- assembled near the Millennium Clock at the south side parking lot of the railroad station.  Armed with work gloves, pick-up devices and plastic bags, the volunteers cleaned 13 locations, including Forest Road Park, La Grande Park, Borough Hall, the Fanwood Public Library and the municipal parking areas, as well as the area around the railroad tracks.
