FANWOOD, NJ -- Mayor Colleen Mahr presented proclamations and resolutions to three noteworthy Fanwood residents during the April 17th regular meeting of the Mayor and Council.

Dale Flowers, owner of the Scotchwood Florist flower shop on South Ave., was honored for his many years on the Planning Board, a position from which he retired last December. Flowers also serves as the announcer for the annual Memorial Day Parade as it makes it way past the Fanwood reviewing stand. He will continue in that role again this year.

Greg Cummings was acknowledged for his continued involvement in Fanwood’s annual Clean Community Day (Earth Day), which will be held this Saturday, April 22nd. Greg has been one of the organizers of this event from the beginning more than 20 years ago. Volunteering for this year’s event can come to the South Avenue train station lot beginning at 8:30 a.m. and become a member of the various teams who go across town, picking up trash and recyclables. There will be giveaways and free food.
