The Foundation for Bordentown Traditions is a non-profit started by members of the community. They were organized to plan, develop, organize and fund community events in Bordentown. It is their goal that these events will raise funds to bring back the Fireworks. I am proud to also be a volunteer member of this organization.
The 2nd Annual Bordentown 5K Turkey Trot and Family Fun Walk was in Bordentown Township on Saturday Nov. 23, 2013. The event was put together by Foundation for Bordentown Traditions. The event had approximately 400 participants, (last year was 204).
Christmas in Bordentown starts early and with the help of countless volunteers and local businesses. This past year the tree was generously donated by the Chesterfield Christmas Tree Farm and to date this was the largest tree we have ever had!
I got a tip about when and where the tree was going to be cut down so I headed over and met some of our great Bordentown City workers as they cut down the tree and brought it to our town to get ready for our annual tree lighting.
