Board Solicitor Eric Goldstein pointed out that no formal offer had been made by the interested party that was not named. “This organization is interested in using the school as an adult training center,” he said. “In order for them to assume ownership they would need to receive state funding for those programs.

HAMILTON TOWNSHIP – When the annual Halloween Parade in Mays Landing, sponsored by the Mays Landing Rotary Club, kicks off at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 30, it will mark the 60th anniversary of the popular event. And for two parade participants, it will be the date that will mark their future anniversaries.

During last year’s parade, then mayor and now Deputy Mayor Amy Gatto noticed that parade viewers were watching the parade while dining in the courtyard next to Brownies Squared on Main Street. Jealous that she wasn’t able to participate in that experience due to marching in the parade she brainstormed with the bakery’s owner Chris Groome as to how to incorporate a dining event into the parade.
