Dear Editor:

On behalf of the Millburn-Short Hills Chamber of Commerce, I would like to offer sincere thanks to the many township departments, community groups, organizations  and individuals who helped make the 36th Annual Investors Bank President’s Cup Night Race held on June 15th such a success.  Despite the early afternoon downpours, runners were committed to the race.   More than 1,500 runners registered for this year’s 5k run.  

First a sincere thank you to the Township Police department. They did an outstanding job of traffic control, ensuring the safety of both runners and spectators. Thanks to the Department of Public Works, the Millburn-Short Hills Rescue Squad and Fire Department, and to the staff at Charlie Brown’s Fresh Grill who did a tremendous job with cleanup.  Thank you to Mayor Tillotson, the Millburn Township Committee and Township Administrator Tim Gordon for their ongoing support of this event.
