Dear Editor:

On behalf of the Millburn-Short Hills Chamber of Commerce, I would like to offer praise and sincere thanks to the many individuals and Township departments who helped make the first annual Chamber of Commerce Short Hills Street Fair on November 3rd such an overwhelming success.

Thousands of people enjoyed outstanding music, a wide variety of culinary treats, child friendly entertainment, an array of merchants and crafters, and best of all, the great community energy that existed throughout the day.

Thank you to Millburn-Short Hills Chamber of Commerce Premier Sponsor Investors Savings Bank,  whose ongoing generosity enables the Chamber to continue to offer quality events that are enjoyed by thousands of residents and visitors. Thank you also to the Mall at Short Hills for their sponsorship for the Short Hills Street Fair.

Thank you to Township Administrator Timothy Gordon and the members of the Township Committee for supporting the Chamber of Commerce in this venture.

As always, Sgt. David Bonney and the police department’s traffic division did an outstanding job of coordinating the street closing along Millburn Avenue, rerouting traffic, assuring pedestrian safety and assisting with the orderly set-up and breakdown of the displays of the more than 100 crafters, food vendors, merchants, and community service organizations who participated.

Special thanks to John Bace, John Walker and the entire crew at the Department of Public Works who always do such a terrific job of providing appropriate trash receptacles and policing the area throughout the event.  Thousands of people enjoyed our town on Sunday and yet by early Monday morning it was free of litter and ready for business. 

And, our event producer, Office of Street Fairs, continues to say that the Millburn Township Police Department, Department of Public Works and emergency service groups are fabulous to work with. Our sincere thanks again.

Finally, it was especially gratifying to see so many community organizations, residents and businesses come together to enjoy this special day. We look forward to hosting another Short Hills Street Fair again in 2014.

Sincerely,

Karol McNulty, Executive Director
