CHATHAM, NJ - A salute to both the fire and police departments of Chatham.

That's what took place during the pre-parade inspection at the firehouse on the morning of July 4.

Fire Chief Pete Glogolich recognized the 100-year anniversary of the police department with a salute from his volunteers at the fire department. And Police Chief Phil Crosson returned the salute, along with the rest of his force. It marked the first time the two departments gathered before the Fourth of July Parade.

Crosson and the entire police force marched down Fairmount Avenue dressed in their formal wear for the occasion.

The firefighters were praised by Mayor Bruce Harris for their dedication. He estimated that they put in 400 man-hours per month without any pay. Harris also praised the volunteers for providing food to emergency and utility workers during Superstorm Sandy, crediting them with helping get the power back quicker because of their efforts.

Bob Franks and Joe Donohue were among the crowd that enjoyed the after-parade party, where beer, hot dogs and soft drinks helped cool everyone off.

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 ...
