The New Providence Historical Society and all its members would like to take this opportunity thank Charles Hovanec owner of New Providence Florist, located at 44  South Street in New Providence, 908-464-7440, www.newprovidenceflorist.com for generously decorating the Saltbox Museum every season for the last 5 years.

Commenting on the generosity of New Providence Florist to the Borough, John Bale, president of the New Providence Historical Society said “I think that he shows that he cares about the community and appreciates that the society is collecting and preserving the history of New Providence. He runs his business from an historic building that previously was the home of the Parcells Family dating back to the 1890’s and he appreciates the history of the town.”
