NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - In a message from Mayor Al Morgan, he asks the community to join in and "to help lift everyone's spirits, they would like to light up our night in our community."  To participate, put lights in your windows or outdoors to show support and solidarity with our community, first responders, and our emergency management team, in the fight against COVID-19. 

"This Spring Holiday Season will be especially hard not to celebrate with family and friends," said Mayor Al. "It is imperative, for your protection, for your family’s protection, and for our community, please do no visit family that does not reside with you during these religious holidays or have any guests. No gatherings. No play dates. No deck parties. No backyard get togethers. Please continue to shelter in and practice all social distancing and prevention protocols." Please visit for more information.

"The kindness and generosity in our community has been tremendous. We would like to thank all the organizations, groups, families, businesses, and volunteers for their continued donations and contributions of masks, supplies, and meals. We are eternally grateful for this incredible support. Pioneer pride and spirit at its very best! Thank you!" he said.
