CHATHAM, NJ - The Chatham Historical Society asked the Borough of Chatham Council to re-dedicate a tree and a plaque in honor of five Chatham residents who gave their lives serving in World War I at the regular meeting of the council on Monday night.

Chatham Borough Mayor Bruce Harris suggested that the re-dedication occur "around noon" during Fishawack on the front lawn of the borough hall, formerly known as Public School No. 1.

Jackie Pindak of the Chatham Historical Society came before the council to make the request, which was greeted with a approval by the mayor and council. She noted that originally five oak trees had been planted in honor of each Chatham resident who lost his life in World War I.

"This year marks the 100th anniversary of the United States entering World War I,
 Pindak said. "There are numerous celebrations and commemorations around the country and we are proposing that our town also have one. There were 135 Chatham men and women who went to war, but five of them did not return."
