On behalf of the Millburn-Short Hills Chamber of Commerce, I would like to offer praise and sincere thanks to the many individuals and Township departments who helped make our annual Chamber of Commerce Fall Art and Street Fair on September 24th such an overwhelming success.
Thanks to sunny skies, thousands of people enjoyed outstanding music, a wide variety of culinary treats, child friendly entertainment, an array of merchants and crafters, and best of all, the great community energy that existed throughout the day.
Thank you to Millburn-Short Hills Chamber of Commerce Premier Sponsor Investors Bank, whose ongoing generosity enables the Chamber to continue to offer quality events that are enjoyed by thousands of residents and visitors.
Thank you to Township Administrator Timothy Gordon and the members of the Township Committee for supporting the Chamber of Commerce in this venture.
As always, Sgt. David Bonney and the Township police department’s traffic division did an outstanding job of coordinating the street closing along Millburn Avenue, rerouting traffic, assuring pedestrian safety and assisting with the orderly set-up and breakdown of the displays of the more than 150 crafters, food vendors, merchants, and community service organizations who participated.
Special thanks to Anthony Boffa and the entire crew at the Department of Public Works who always do such a terrific job of transporting picnic tables, providing appropriate trash receptacles and cleaning up the area. Thousands of people enjoyed our town on Sunday and yet by early Monday morning it was free of litter and ready for business.
And, our event producer, Office of Street Fairs, continues to say that the Millburn Township Police Department, Department of Public Works and emergency service groups are fabulous to work with. Our sincere thanks again.
Finally, it was especially gratifying to see so many community organizations, residents and businesses come together to enjoy the fair. We look forward to hosting our first Street Fair on Sunday, November 4 along Millburn Avenue in Short Hills.
