ROSELLE PARK, NJ - The Roselle Park Arts Committee’s latest project ‘Hope Ties Us Together’ began Monday.

‘Hope Ties Us Together’ came about after Mayor Signorello reached out to the Arts Committee about doing a new project.

“He wanted something to bring us all together and show that Roselle Park is stronger than what's currently going on,” said Arts Committee Chairman Chris Shoemaker.

Arts Committee member Michele LoManto came up with the ribbon idea after seeing similar projects in Cranford and Millburn. Sunday morning LoManto and Arts Committee member Lina Crincoli tied the multi-color ribbons to the fences.

“The idea here is to tie our community together,” said LoManto. 

To participate in the project residents can visit the Casano Community Center where ribbons have been tied to the outer fence. Pick any ribbon and write a wish on it. Then residents can tie their ribbon on the fences at Aldene Park, Acker Park, the Community Garden or the Casano Community Center. 

There Arts Committee has not yet decided how long the project will be active.
