SUMMIT, NJ - Hundreds of people came out on Sunday to celebrate the Summit Historical Society's 25th Anniversary of A Taste of Summit. Attendees were treated to savory dishes and sweet treats from 20 local restaurants and food shops.
 
While the Summit Historical Society relies on membership contributions, donations and grants throughout the year, A Taste of Summit is the organization's major fundraising event that helps maintain its headquarters at the Carter House, the grounds and the archives.
 
 
Held at The Grand Summit Hotel, the event also featured the Summit Fire Department's venerable 1927 Chemical Engine No. 1, a part of the city's lore and tradition, that currently resides at the Summit Fire House.  Money is currently being raised so that the firetruck can reside at The Carter House on Butler Parkway. 
 
The engine was driven to the hotel's grounds for the event.  Friends of the Firetruck, a collaborative effort between the city's fire department and the historical society, has been restoring the engine and planning how it will be showcased. The Summit Common Council passed a resolution last year allowing the fire department to relocate the engine to the Carter House, the oldest structure in the city.

 
Friends of the Firetruck raffle prizes included a stay at the DeBary Inn, dinner at the Hat Tavern, jewelry and a Creative Wallcoverings gift certificate.
 
Participating restaurant and food shops included: Anna's Ristorante, Brownie Points Bakery, Fiorino Ristorante, food., Hat Tavern, Huntley Taverne, Joe's Pizzeria & Vittoria Ristorante, King's Catering, La Pasteria, Marco Polo Restaurant & Tavern, Natale's Summit Bakery, The Office Beer, Bar & Grill, Overlook Food & Nutrition Services, Roots Steakhouse, Starbucks Coffee, The Summit Diner, Sweet Nothings, Towne Deli, Winberie's Restaurant & Bar and Zappia's.
 
Sponsors included: Coldwell Banker Realtors in Summit, Hilltop Community Bank, Somerset Hills Bank and Overlook Medical Center.

Fear of Rising Rates? Remember The Reason You Own Bonds

If the current interest environment has you concerned about your bond portfolio, remember why you are investing in bonds.  The role bonds, or fixed income, play in a portfolio is not solely based on performance.  Bonds are used to offer stability, particularly when stock market volatility is rising. Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
