CHATHAM, NJ - On Wednesday night, Chatham High school’s cafeteria was full of residents from the Chatham area including adults, children and Kiwanis members for their 37th annual Fish and Chips dinner.

Kiwanis of Madison-Chatham, is a local and worldwide community and service club that donates all the money raised from different events to various charities and hospitals. Every year Kiwanis finds a new charity to donate money to. They even have scholarships opportunities for the students of Chatham High School given each year. The scholarships are given to about 8 students who not only excel in their school work, but give back to the community.

Monty Montague, the treasurer of Kiwanis, told TheAlternativePress.com that the scholarship “is for the children who want to and will become leaders, and they have to show initiative.” They also give away money for awards to groups such as the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts.

Past President of Kiwanis Mal Kitson says that the best part of being in a club that does so much for others are the people. "They are all terrific. I also enjoy meeting new people." Kiwanis is about getting
to know great people who do great things for others. When Kiwanis was first founded, it was only open
to males, but later changed to accepting females. Kitson said that “The club is better now with the
females.”

Kiwanis raises about $3,000 each year for the fish and chips event. The menu consisted of fish and chicken which was cooked in heart healthy canola oil. The dinners also included tomato juice, coleslaw, rolls and of course dessert and coffee. Argyle of Kearny prepared all the meals in Chatham High School’s cafeteria. There was also a magician, Simon Mandal, who comes every year to entertain with his comical “Micro Magic” throughout the event. The servers of the event were members from Kiwanis, and also key club members from both Chatham and Madison High School, the builders club of Chatham Middle School and St Patrick’s School and Circle K Club or Drew University.

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 ...
