SAGE Eldercare has approximately 400 Meals on Wheels volunteers who over the past year have devoted 17,264 hours of their personal time to delivering meals to homebound seniors and/or disabled residents in our area. One of those volunteers is Morristown resident, Aimee Bloom, who has been a Meals on Wheels volunteer for over fifteen years delivering to residents in Chatham every Wednesday. Over the years she has developed close relationships with the people she serves. For her steady and reliable years of volunteering, Bloom has been named the May Volunteer of the Month by SAGE.

SAGE's Meals on Wheels' clients for Union and Essex Counties are delivered year-round out of SAGE's headquarters at 290 Broad Street, Summit, and deliveries for Morris County, including Chatham Township and Borough, and are picked up at either The Madison Senior Center in the Rexford S. Tucker Apartments, or at the Church of Christ in Chatham.

SAGE is always in need of more Meals on Wheels volunteers throughout the towns they deliver to, including Summit, Berkeley Heights, the Chathams, Millburn, Short Hills, Mountainside, New Providence and Springfield. In particular, SAGE anticipates a shortage of Chatham volunteers due to summer vacation schedules and is looking for summer volunteer replacements.

If you are interested in volunteering for SAGE, please contact Marianne Kranz, Director of Meals on Wheels and Home Support Services at 908-598-5514, or email her at mkranz@sageeldercare.org. Please visit our website at www.sageeldercare.org to see the latest offerings and news at SAGE Eldercare.

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. At age eleven she’s figured out that we adults need to be reminded how to speak to one another in order to fix a problem. But I have hope and belief that we can fix that discourse in our ...
