FANWOOD, NJ -- It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Fanwood now that Greg Roser has thrown the switch to illuminate "Fanwood's Famous Christmas House" on Friday, Nov. 27.

Greg Roser undertakes the annual fundraising effort as  memorial to Rosemary "Rosie" Merced, a former co-worker who died from cancer earlier this year. As always the grand lighting occurred on the day after Thanksgiving (Friday, Nov. 27) at dusk. Donations are already coming in for NJ Institute for Disabilities, and the display is not yet lit.
