FLEMINGTON, NJ - Recognizing the substantial contribution of volunteers in a small town, Mayor Betsy Driver issued a proclamation thanking eight residents for their efforts.
At its Jan. 27 meeting, the mayor and borough council acknowledged the board members of the Friends of Fleming Castle as “noteworthy and honorable citizens and partners” in their efforts to improve the community.
Kelli Dochterman, Amanda Guthrie, Donna Guthrie, Edna Pedrick, Dana Donahue-Sparling, Randy Block, Loretta Borowsky and Jeff Fiedler were applauded for another successful programming year of open houses, tours, private showings and the sixth annual tricky tray event.
The Samuel Fleming House was built in 1756 as one of the first permanent structures in Flemington. In 2005, the Borough of Flemington purchased the Samuel Fleming House, Museum and Gardens.
Since then the Friends of Fleming Castle have been stewards of the house and grounds, championing the history and memory of Samuel Fleming and the start of the borough of Flemington as it is known today, with nearly 100,000 hours of voluntary service.
