Here at Summit Community Programs, we take tradition pretty seriously.  In fact, we will be celebrating 67 years of tradition this year with the 2014 Mayor’s Annual Fourth of July Celebration to be held on Soldier’s Memorial Field on Friday, July 4th.  While old traditions are great, we also like to make way for new traditions every once in a while.  And so, for the first year ever, the Summit DCP will be hosting a Children’s Decorated Bicycle Parade - 2014 Photo Contest.  All you have to do is send us your pictures for a chance to win a Grand Prize.

Here’s what we’re looking for in order to participate.  Dig up any old photos of family members competing in previous Annual Decorated Bicycle Parades.  This includes older siblings, parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles… you get the idea.  Next, snap a photo of projected 2014 participants gearing up for this year’s parade.  Photos of current parade participants may be taken on the day of the 2014 event.  Be sure to show us some of that USA pride! 

Once you’ve compiled a few old and new family photographs, send them over to us at recdept@cityofsummit.org.  Your photos will then make an appearance on our beloved Summit Family Aquatic Center Icon, Shark Didd'y Facebook page.  The family photo album which receives the most likes will win a Grand Prize.  Just how grand is the Grand Prize, you ask?  Let’s just say, it’s so grand that its grandness can only be revealed on the grandest day of the year in Summit… July 4th.  All you have to do is send us your pictures in order to qualify to win… it’s that simple. 

So what are you waiting for?  Show us how far back your family tradition goes.  And while we’re still on the subject, why not help keep one this City’s most treasured traditions going strong?  Celebrate 67 years of our country’s rich history right here in Summit with the Mayor’s Annual 4th of July Celebration, presented by the Summit Fourth of July & Celebration Committee, Inc.

Contest ends 11:59 PM on Monday, July 7th 2014.  Please submit all pictures with brief caption and contact information to recdept@cityofsummit.org in order to qualify to win.  Winner will be announced Tuesday, July 8th via social media and email confirmation.   For more information, please contact the Summit Department of Community Programs at 908-277-2932 or visit us online at www.cityofsummit.org/recreation.

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 ...
