CHATHAM TOWNSHIP, NJ - Residents of Chatham Township and nearby towns filled the Chatham Township Fire Department (495 River Road) on September 22, 2012, for an evening of food, fundraising, and entertainment.

This was the 10th year of the Chatham Township Firefighter’s Benevolent Fund Family Bar-B-Que and Oktoberfest. This fall event raises money for the all-volunteer fire department. David Bruen, who has been a firefighter for thirty years, said that an important challenge facing the Department is “letting people in the town know we're volunteers.”

Attendees came with an appetite and left well-nourished.  Bruen was manning the grills, which were cooking hot dogs, burgers, chicken, and four whole pigs.  Well over one hundred attendees sat at round tables in the firehouse.

While adults were drinking Oktoberfest beer, kids were enjoying the bouncy house and fire trucks. One fire truck with a hose was a particular success. Children of all ages were running in water spouting from the hose, getting drenched and aiming the hose at plywood houses.

Residents watched Ten Foot Tall, a local classic rock band perform. This year was the band's fourth year playing at the event.

Imagine a Chatham Toboggan Ride from the Top of Fairmount Avenue to Main Street

Did you know….
there was a time when Chatham kids could ice skate from downtown Chatham all the way to Florham Park? And that a toboggan ride could last from the top of Fairmount Avenue down to Main Street and beyond?

Those were the days!

This was back in the early to mid-1900s. The Passaic River meandered through grassy meadows and woods on the north side of Chatham. The marshy ...
