Veterans Day is an important day for showing our appreciation towards members of our military. Please join the Mayor and Council during the Borough of Pompton Lakes Annual Veterans Day Ceremony scheduled for Wednesday, November 13th, 6:30pm at the Carnevale Center as we recognize those who are serving or have served our country. We must remain mindful of those Veterans who serve our Country protecting our freedoms and values as a nation. Remember to express your appreciation and gratitude not only on Veterans Day but every day by simply acknowledging a Veteran for their service.
Another group I would like to recognize is our Chamber of Commerce. The Pompton Lakes Chamber of Commerce are a local organization of businesses, professionals and eateries who promote the community. The Pompton Lakes Chamber of Commerce members serve as spokespeople and representatives for our business community by stimulating growth in the business district. Members organize events and activities throughout the calendar year; Annual Car Show and Holiday Stroll. I thank the members for their continued support in making our business district an inviting community to shop in.
A reminder that leaf pick up has begun and to revert to the Town Calendar for the garbage and leaf pick up schedules. I would also like to thank residents for their patience and adhering to the new State Regulated Recycling changes that recently occurred. The Borough and the DPW has worked diligently to inform residents by means of social media, the Borough website, Channel 77, WGHT Radio and the notification system to inform residents of the modifications made to recyclables.
The Borough Health Department provides free and moderate cost health programs and clinics that are available to residents. This month’s programs include Free Rabies Clinic at the Firehouse, Stroke Screening, and Flu Vaccines. Please visit the Borough website, Facebook and channel 77 for full details.
Please remember Election Day, Tuesday, November 5th, polls are open from 6:00am – 8:00pm and refer to your sample ballot for your voting district.
In Closing, I would like to wish everyone a Safe Thanksgiving Holiday.
