Thank you from "Santa"

To The Editor:

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the children of all ages who came out to
see me at the Holiday Celebration in Scotch Plains this past Sunday. It was great to see
so many people come out on a beautiful, unseasonably warm day. It was so warm I had
trouble keeping my glasses from getting all fogged up. I had a lot of fun meeting so
many great children and their families. As we speak, the elves are working feverishly up
at the North Pole filling all the requests.

I want to thank the many people who made my visit possible. Thanks to the Scotch
Plains Fire Department, Department of Public Works, and Recreation Department for
helping to set up the event and also allowing it to run smoothly. Thank you to the Scotch
Plains Police Department for keeping everyone safe. Thanks also to the volunteer elves
for making it a fun day. It was great seeing all those Girl Scouts. A special thank you
goes to Mayor DePaola for lighting the beautiful Christmas tree in Alan Augustine Park.
We were up so high, we had a beautiful view.

A special thank you goes to SPBPA President Lisa Mohn of Apple Blossom Flower Shop
for planning and coordinating the event. Lisa’s tireless efforts have made the event a
great success for many years.

I want to wish everyone a happy, healthy and peaceful holiday season. Don’t forget my
cookies (chocolate chip or peanut butter or maybe even macadamia nut) and milk (1%
please – Mrs. Claus says I need to lose some weight) on Christmas Eve! And please
don’t forget the carrots for the reindeer.

Sincerely,

Santa Claus
North Pole

We Have To Budget Better

August 10, 2016

Dear Editor: 

As we have been visiting residents while campaigning, quite a few have expressed their disappointment with the lack of a branch pickup after the recent large storms. Our neighbors in Fanwood picked up branches after these storms, but in Scotch Plains the manager says we can't because "budgets are tight". 

 

The Mayor touted an $11 average ...
