CHATHAM, NJ - The Borough of Chatham Council passed a resolution that authorizes the 2020 summer concert series set for the Gazebo in Reasoner Park at the council's regular meeting held Monday night.

The concerts will be held on Thursdays from 6:30 to 8 p.m. The six scheduled dates are June 25, July 9, July 23, Aug. 6, Aug. 20 and Sept. 3. The borough is seeking sponsors for the concerts.

The borough held a "pilot" concert last Aug. 30 and that led to a full schedule of six concerts for this summer, starting June 25 and followed by two concerts in July, two in August, with the end-of-summer concert set for Sept. 3.
