ROSELAND, NJ - It was a fun-filled day in Roseland as Mayor John Duthie and the borough council joined the Roseland Recreation Department in hosting the second annual Roseland Community Fair at the Harrison Fairgrounds in Roseland.

According to Duthie, the Community Fair is a great way for residents of all ages to co-mingle and enjoy food and entertainment.

Duthie also said this year's fair was particularly special because the borough was able to showcase the World War II 155 Millimeter Howitzer Cannon from the United States Army that has been gifted to VFW Post 2619 of Roseland/Caldwell and recently arrived in Roseland from the VFW in Wharton.

“What a great day to welcome the WWII Howitzer into Roseland and have a piece of our nation's history on display at our VFW post forever,” said Duthie.

He explained that Post Commander Ralph Veltre of VFW Post 2619 contacted him more than a year ago for help in picking up the Howitzer that was awarded to the Roseland/Caldwell post by the U.S. Army. After Duthie put Veltre in contact with Thomas O’Bierne of Thomas J & Company, they, along with City Erectors of West Caldwell, the Roseland Police Department and the New Jersey State Troopers, donated their services.

The WWII Howitzer will be displayed in front of VFW Post 2619 Roseland/Caldwell located at 52 Eisenhower Parkway in Roseland. The Howitzer artillery piece landed as part of the second wave at Normandy and fought in the Battle of the Bulge. 

Elsewhere at the fair, Roseland Recreation Director Michael Colitti was having fun flipping burgers and said that he hopes that the Community Fair will continue to be an annual event and that he is excited for everyone to come out and have fun.

“The Community Fair was fun for the entire family and included music by Sizzling Sounds DJ, inflatables by Fun Services and a free BBQ including hamburgers, hot dogs, salads, watermelon and drinks,” he said. 

Roseland moms Kim Pannucci and Renee Cosentini said the event was very nice and that their kids were excited for the inflatables and to see their friends.

A Special Thank You For Helping Us Weather The Storm

June 18, 2018

About a month ago, on May 15, 2018, something happened to me and my family that changed our lives. An act of God, apparently a “microburst,” tore through our front yard, and uprooted an approximately 19,000 pound tree. The tree fell into my 8 month old’s bedroom destroying the entire structure of our home.

My husband, with what I call divine intervention, told us to go ...
