Gathering fittingly on 'International Children's Day', Summit Mayor Nora Radest, Police Chief Robert Weck and several of the SPD's Officers, Board of Education member Josh Weinreich, Superintendent of Schools June Chang, Assistant Superintendent for Business Lou Pepe, Lincoln-Hubbard Elementary Principal Matt Carlin and members of the Lincoln-Hubbard PTO were among those on hand for the unveiling of the school's 'Tarentino Buddy Bench'.

The seat of honor serves as a tribute to the late Summit Police Detective Matthew Tarentino who, prior to his passing just over a year ago, served as both the driving force and face of the Department's community policing initiative and spent considerable time in and around Lincoln-Hubbard and all Summit school campuses and their students.

The premise of the bench is both simple and profound: If you are feeling lonely and need a buddy you just sit down and, conversely, when you see someone sitting on the 'Buddy Bench', come over and be their friend, and invite them to come play with you and your friends.

The bench -- inscribed with the words 'Friend and Role Model to Us All' - was funded by the Lincoln-Hubbard PTO, and will be placed on the Lincoln-Hubbard playground, adjacent to the swing set.
