A stroll through history

Take a tour of the town from the vantage point of a woman who lived there in the early 20th century. Starting in front of an upper-middle class home at 15 Prospect Terrace, you’ll learn about Montclair’s history, focusing on the late 1800s to mid-1900s, a period of great growth and change, as it would have likely been experienced by the family that lived here. The tour shines a special spotlight on a woman’s experience during that time and typical activities and interests. A tour will also be given inside the First Congregational Church and the Montclair Women’s Club, light refreshments served at the end. The walking tour is led by Montclair History Center Board of Trustee Helen Fallon and Manager of Audience Engagement, Angelica Diggs. Co-sponsored by Bike&Walk Montclair. Suggested donation of $10. Register by calling 973-744-1796 or send a note to mail@montclairhistorical.org. We’ll be walking about a mile, including a viewing of the current Mills Social Services building gardens, ending at the Women's Club of Montclair. www.montclairhistory.org.

To the Editor: Labor Unions Have Set Standards for Americans

June 5, 2018

To the Editor:

I want to alert every working American to a case now before the U.S. Supreme Court.  It is called “Janus vs. AFSCME” and it seeks to defund and cripple the same labor unions that, over decades, have raised every American’s standard of living.
