CHATHAM, NJ - There is domestic violence occurring in every community and more than 2,000 incidents happen in Morris County each year alone.

That was part of the message given by Regina Braham of the JBWS (Jersey Battered Women's Service) at the awareness event held in the Chatham Township Municipal Building this week. Braham didn't need to prove her claims of domestic violence in every community. Before the event was over she had confirmation from two local Chatham women in the audience.

The women came to the meeting to thank JBWS, now in its 40th year, for the help they received and to tell their personal stories.

Chatham Township Mayor Curt Ritter organized the event to highlight Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Braham spoke about individual and community responses to domestic violence and the goal to "shift the social norms that allow it to continue while empowering victims and holding batterers responsible."

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 ...
