CHATHAM, NJ - Downtown Chatham looks a little neater and cleaner after a record number of volunteers participated in the fifth annual Spring Clean on Saturday.

"This is our fifth year of doing Spring Clean and we have our largest contingent of Key Club members and volunteers," Janice Piccolo, director of Chatham Community Services, said. 

Piccolo said there were 225 volunteers who joined Tony Torello's Chatham Borough DPW members to plant flowers and spread fertilizer.

"You know they say many hands make light work and this is a true example of that," Victoria Fife, borough council member and volunteer, said. "There are even people who didn't know about it and have stopped to help."

Chatham High student Paul Danenberg helped bring 35 volunteers to help at Spring Clean, including 30 Key Club members, along with members of the Kiwanis Club and the Builder's Club.

"It's going a lot faster this year," Danenberg said.

The annual cleanup of downtown Chatham is organized by MyChathamNJ."

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 ...

To the Editor,

I told my daughter I needed to write about gun violence. Know what she told me? “Mom, be sure you’re not too polarizing. People won’t listen.” She’s right.
