HAWTHORNE, NJ - At noon on Thursday, April 9, Hawthorne residents stepped out of their homes or went to opened windows to participate in a town-wide tribute of applause for those working on the front-lines of the coronavirus pandemic.  The "clap out" was called for by Mayor Richard S. Goldberg in his Monday letter and the community took up the cause.

TAPinto Hawthorne asked readers to send in some pictures which we have published here. 

"I am grateful that our residents took time out to honor those who sacrifice on a daily basis," Mayor Goldberg told TAPinto Hawthorne.  "Thank you all for participating."
