The Lincoln’s birthday celebration will honor NJ Senator Leanna Brown for over fifty years of public service to the community.   Senator Brown, who moved into Chatham Borough in the late 1950s, will be moving to Morristown in the spring of 2013. 
 
During the course of her career, she has served as: Chatham Borough Council Member, Morris County Freeholder; Morris County Freeholder Director; New Jersey Association of Counties President; New Jersey Assemblywoman; New Jersey Senator; and New Jersey Casino Control Commissioner.   
 
 
In those positions, she worked for improved transportation, fiscal responsibility, emergency preparedness, affordable housing, and international trade.
 
Senator Brown made a point throughout her career of encouraging talented people to get involved with government.  She mentored and championed hundreds of excellent public servants throughout her career.  From 2007-2009, she served on the President’s Commission on White House Fellows.

 
She currently writes a syndicated column, Upbeat New Jersey, for New Jersey Hills newspapers.
 
Members of the Republican Club of the Chathams, and those who wish to become members, may pay their annual dues at the Lincoln’s birthday event.  Dues cost $20 per person, or $30 per couple, per year.  The event will cost $20 per person.  Light refreshments will be served.  All are welcome.
 

In addition to celebrating Lincoln’s birthday, the Republican Club of the Chathams hosts an annual picnic, as well as occasional Candidates’ Nights, which provide an informal setting for the public to get to know Republican candidates for local public offices.

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.
