MADISON, NJ - “In our fast paced world where everybody is pulled apart, The Kiwanis Club of the Chathams and Madison continues to find ways to serve, devote time and instill a spirit of giving in others which I believe makes the community even stronger,” said Karen Swartz, board member and chairperson of the Kiwanis Benevolence Committee. 

Tonight, the Annual Community Award Reception hosted by the Kiwanis Club of the Chathams and Madison, will pay special tribute to The Team Eagle Foundation which promotes leadership qualities in both boys and girls.  The Team Eagle Foundation provides mentoring in significant ways focusing on real life scenarios and helping children to connect with worldly issues. 

Every summer, Boy Scouts of America and The Team Eagle Foundation runs a retreat where kids are exposed to core issues related to community, ethics, education and cultural diversity.  The objective is to help kids build personal character, embrace family values and develop a sense of meaning related to self and his/her surroundings.

“The Kiwanis Club’s donation of funds helps to send kids who can’t afford the opportunity. Our local chapter wants to improve the world one child at a time, and this is the kind of program that helps us to do just that.  It’s such a worthwhile project, “ said Swartz.

At present, there are 8000+ Kiwanis Clubs with over 250,000+ members worldwide. The mission of every club is to serve and support the community in a variety of causes, including the ELIMINATE project, in which Kiwanis and UNICEF have joined forces in an effort to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus.  

The Kiwanis Club of the Chathams and Madison has provided funding for a variety of community causes.  To learn more about membership, its mission and charitable contributions, go to www.chathammadisonkiwanis.org

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 ...
