On Tuesday, January 27th, 2015, the children in Bordentown had a snow day due to the year’s first blizzard. The best place to have an outdoor activity is the sledding hill is Lime Kiln Alley, that goes toward the nature preserve alongside Black’s Creek. Children of all ages and their parents love to get on their sleds and race down the hill. The snow was perfect!
On December 13th, 2014 the Bordentown Historical Society sponsored the Annual Holiday House Tour. Local residents in Bordentown City opened their private homes fully decorated for the holidays so that visitors could walk through them.

The home of Chris and Karen Hofrichter’s home was built in 1841 and had a gorgeous real 12 foot tree in their front parlor.
The home of Chuck and Judy Pesce decorated just about every room in their home that was built in 1901.
National Night Out was celebrated in Bordentown Township at Joseph Lawrence Park on August 5th, 2014. The entire event was free, including face painting, police demonstrations, demonstrations, music, food and drinks. This awareness-raising event in the United States, is held the first Tuesday of August.
The event has been held annually since 1984 and is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch in the United States and Canada.
The events are typically organized by block watches, non-for-profit organizations, companies, and police departments. These events can be as simple as backyard cookouts to full-blown festivals like the one on the west side of Columbus, Ohio. The Ogden Block Watch in Columbus organizes one of the largest of this type of National Night Out festival which includes live music, food, and entertainment.
