Resolution Time in the Borough of Garwood, NJ

2011 is coming to close and while it's time for many to make personal resolutions for the New Year, the community as a whole can also set some goals for 2012. Here's one suggestion: re-subscribe to civic responsibility. While many residents of Garwood may have a sense of civic pride, there seems to only be a few that take an active role as a citizen. 

Let's all take a closer look at what we can do to make this town a model for the rest of the state. Plant a tree, sweep a sidewalk, spruce up your curb appeal, help out a neighbor, attend a council meeting, volunteer, help organize a town-wide event, shop local, donate to charity, thank a police officer, a teacher, or a member of the fire department, join a civic club, dine local, fly an American flag, buy a ticket to the 8th Grade Play, don't speed, or just take a que from the yellow guy on Center Street and smile. These are just a few suggestions, maybe one or two can make it onto your resolution list. Have a healthy and happy New Year!
