Inspired by one of our past programs, "A Walking Tour Through Chatham's Past at Fair Mount Cemetery," board members Amy Crandall and Christine Grobert put together a special field trip for all fourth graders from Lafayette School. Using the cemetery as a unique setting to teach some local history, the program featured drama students from the High School, dressed in period costumes, performing short narratives in the vicinity of various final resting places of influential people from Chatham's past.
Our Annual Dinner and Meeting on May 8th was attended by approximately 90 members! Board member Helen Ann Rosenfeld organized the Dani McCullough Adopt-A-House presentations - Susan Allen, Kathleen Sims and Carolyn McCarthy each shared the wonderfully rich histories of their well-researched Chatham Homes.
Kathleen and Mark Sims of 52 North Hillside Avenue in Chatham Borough were recently awarded the second Historical Home Plaque by the Chatham Historical Society. It was presented by Co-Chairmen of the Society’s Plaque Program, Noelle Joralemon and Isobel Mitchell.
