The Mayor’s Desk

Mayor Robert Klaus To Our Friends and Neighbors-Celebrate—well we are wrapping-up our Centennial year soon. We have had several celebration events this year including the Social in March, the clock unveiling in July, the town Picnic in September and finally will be the

Year-end Gala on December 2. This event will not only signal the close of the Centennial year but it will also be a celebration and fundraiser for the new Wish Upon a Star Playground. There is more information in this issue about the Gala and we hope you will join us for this festive event! Time Capsule—we will be sealing-up the time capsule on Tuesday, December 19 at 6pm. We will be putting back all the “stuff” that was in the capsule from the last anniversary and will add all the new “stuff” from this year’s events. If you have anything you would like included for posterity,

please bring your submission to Borough Hall by Friday, December 8. A history of your family’s time in Barrington, any interesting stories or anecdotes, photos or memorabilia— anything you think may be of interest to the people who will open the capsule 25 years from now. Redevelopment along White Horse Pike – we are happy to see Wawa and Wild Wing Café both doing so well. Both businesses are busy and business seems to be booming. We are excited about the next and final phase which will be the construction of ChikFil-A on the other side of the Pike at the corner of Bell Avenue. Barrington Senior

Citizen Bus – The senior transport is working well-we have been in service now for almost a year. The bus transports seniors during the day to needed stops-Borough Hall, Rite Aid, Shop Rite, and the Post Office. We are looking at possibly expanding to provide additional services to our senior residents. Watch the borough website for more information. The bus runs Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10:00am till 2:00pm. Annual Reorganization Meeting—our annual Reorganization meeting will be Sunday, January 7, 2018, at 2:00pm. Come for the biggest meeting of the year and to hear the wonderful Barrington Band!

Do You Need the Winter “Function Better Program”? Each winter, many folks perform activities such as bundling-up for afternoon walks, shoveling snow, clearing snow and ice off the car, visiting friends, attending children’s shows and shopping in town. If you find yourself in a position where the bending, reaching, endurance, balance, standing, walking, carrying and climbing requirements of these activities are too difficult, too painful or even impossible, the “Function Better Program” at WORK-UP PHYSICAL THERAPY may be just what you need to perform your tasks and activities this winter! The “Function Better Program” at WORK-UP PHYSICAL THERAPY emphasizes muscle strengthening and stretching exercises, activities to decrease pain, conditioning exercises on equipment as well as personalized instruction to promote safe and independent function. After completion of the “Function Better Program”, many people report that they are pain free and able to lead a more active and independent lifestyle. WORK-UP PHYSICAL THERAPY is conveniently located at 135 East Atlantic Avenue in Haddon Heights (just off Station Avenue). Due to high demand, slots for the upcoming winter session of the “Function Better Program” are limited and filling quickly. To reserve a slot for the program, call (856) 546-0377.

At WORK-UP PHYSICAL THERAPY, you will find that:

Borough Bulletin

This feature is in every issue of “Barrington on Track” where we try to keep you informed about upcoming meetings as well as recap business that has transpired at prior meetings. Our goal is to keep our residents as informed as possible about borough business. You can also visit our website at for full copies of meeting minutes, resolutions and ordinances. Also, we post public hearing notices on ordinances that are being considered for adoption in the Retrospect and/or Courier Post and on Channels 19 (Comcast) and 33 (Verizon). The channel postings can also be viewed on the website. For full copies of any ordinance you can e-mail the borough clerk at Upcoming meetings:

Council meetings: November 13, 2017 (Monday); December 12, 2017 Caucus meetings: November 8, 2017 (Wednesday); December 5, 2017 Reorganization: January 7, 2018, 2:00 p.m. Caucus and Council meetings begin at 6:00pm and all meetings include open public portions will the public will be heard on any subject.

The Tax Assessor is available in-person on Thursdays from 4:45pm-5:45pm. We are rapidly approaching the close of our Centennial Year. Barrington was incorporated as a municipality on March 27, 1917. Reaching 100 years of age was a milestone that we have been celebrating all year long. We are also excited about our next major project, the new fully accessible Wish Upon a Star Playground that will be unveiled in the spring of 2018. It is sad to say goodbye to the old playground as many people donated their time and money to building that playground more than 22 years ago. But the playground has deteriorated over the years and wooden structures like that one are no longer being built because they are difficult to maintain and deteriorate over time. The new state-of-the art playground will be accessible to kids of all abilities and will be the cornerstone of Barrington that we are sure will be as loved as the old playground. It is being made possible through a Camden County CDBG grant and a partnership with Kiwanis of the Haddons. We hope you will join us at the year-end Gala on December 2 at the Bellmawr Ballroom as we say goodbye to our Centennial and celebrate the coming of the new playground. More information about the Gala can be found in this issue and on our website. All of us in the Tax and Administration Offices of the Borough of Barrington wish all of our residents a very Happy Holiday season and a Happy New Year. Thank you for allowing us to serve you.

Councilwoman Patti Harris Dear Neighbors and Residents of Barrington-I hope that you have all enjoyed your summer and are looking forward to fall and the holiday season. It has been a festive year for all of us as we continue to celebrate Barrington’s 100 year anniversary. I would like to thank the volunteers who have planned and facilitated all the events in town. We are truly lucky to have as many volunteers as we do. Barrington is a small town with a big heart. I hope that I will see everyone at the opening of the new Wish Upon Star Park-- a playground created for everyone to enjoy regardless of their abilities. This project is made possible through a Community Development Block Grant from the Camden County Freeholders and Kiwanis of the Haddons. I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving and a Merry Christmas!!

Due to the Thanksgiving Day holiday falling on a Thursday recycle pick up will be done the following day, Friday, 11/24 the same day as trash. Please separate your recycle containers from your trash containers so the crews can easily distinguish between the two for proper pick up. Recycling and Trash pick

up schedules will not be affected by the holidays this year and will remain the same. Concrete and Stump holiday schedule – Due to Thanksgiving Day falling on a Thursday concrete and stump pickup will be on, Wednesday, 11/22. Please call prior to the pickup day to be put on the schedule.

Due to Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and President’s Day falling on a Monday brush pickup will be the following day, Tuesday 1/16 and Tuesday 2/20/2018. RECYCLING NEWS Vegetative Waste/Leaves During the winter months from January until the end of March, the DPW will continue to do courtesy bagged or containerized pick ups weather and manpower permitting on Mondays. This type of waste is recyclable and costs less to dispose of as compared to being disposed of as trash waste which is not allowed and is much more environmentally

responsible. If you can, please wait until the Spring regular pick up schedule resumes to put out. There will also be a loose-leaf pick up week that will occur again in the Spring of 2018. Brush – Is a year round pick up performed on Monday’s. Tree limbs and trimmings, brush with roots removed and stumps no larger than twelve inches in diameter with all dirt washed off. Stumps in excess of twelve inches in diameter must arrange for a special pick up which is performed on Thursdays by calling the DPW prior to Thursday to be put on a pick up list. Any tree removals performed by a contractor and/ or homeowner is the responsibility of the contractor and/or homeowner to arrange for disposal of all resulting debris. The DPW will not pick up any debris resulting from tree removals. Scrap Metal – Over the past few years the Borough has seen a decline in our recycling rate for scrap metal. In an effort to curb scavengers residents are asked to wait until the morning of pickup to put your items to the curb, you can also bring your scrap metal items to the DPW yard Monday thru Friday during normal business hours, 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., for disposal in our scrap metal dumpster or if you can contact the DPW ahead of time we may be able to make arrangements for pick up prior to your regularly scheduled pick up date if our schedule and

manpower allows. By increasing our scrap metal recycling rate the Borough will receive increased revenue shares, increase our overall recycling rate which will increase our recycling grant funding because it is based on how much you recycle and help in achieving the State goal of recycling 50% of our solid waste stream Statewide. In 2016 the Borough residential recycling rate was 54.83%. Electronics Recycling: Residents can bring their E-Waste to the DPW yard for disposal. Hours for drop off are Monday thru Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The following items can be disposed of as E-Waste: • 15,17,19,21 Inch Monitors, Flat Screens and All-InOnes • Towers, Desktops and Laptops • Uninterrupted Power Supply • Keyboards, Mouse and Speakers • All Type of Wire • Gold Clip Ends • Printers, Fax Machines, Scanners, Modems and Copy Machines • All Type of Memory • Any Hard Drives • Fans and Power Supplies • Mother, B,C, Tweeter and Finger Boards • AC Adapters, Yokes and Motors • Plastic, Baled or Loose • Aluminum, Brass, Light Iron and Copper • Metals, Baled or Loose • Any and All Related Computer Parts • Phones, Cell Phones, Cell Phone and

Centennial Essay And Poster Contest Winners

The winners of the essay contest: 1st prize Isabella Scarpato 6th grade 2nd prize Abigail Lelionis 6th grade 3rd prize Nathaniel Correa 5th grade

Earlier this year the Centennial Committee held essay and poster contests for Barrington school children. Topic: What I like about living in Barrington. We got some wonderful observations about growing up in Barrington. Some of the recurring favorites were: “Star Park” (the Wish Upon a Star playground) Barrington Day and Harvest Fest Christmas, 4th of July parades and the fireworks Great schools and teachers Town sports Great Police, Fire and Ambulance Departments Food (Novella’s, Slice, Vito’s, B Corner, Kaffee Corner) What did the kids like most about Barrington? Every essay mentioned the same thing…the friendliness of the town!

The winner of the poster contest: Sydney Parkin 4th grade A big thank you goes to the Language Arts teacher at Woodland School, Chrissie Minner. She encouraged her sixth grade students to participate and made sure the essays were typed, spell checked and easy to read. We’ll add all the essays to the time capsule. We hope that in 2042 these same students, as adults, will be on hand for the time capsule opening and that Barrington will still be the small town that they loved growing-up.

Barrington T-N-R Program As you are probably already aware, the Barrington T-N-R program has spayed and neutered hundreds of cats over the past several years. They have also been successful in getting hundreds of kittens adopted. With winter rapidly approaching, we are in dire need of food donations to be able to keep the feral cat colonies fed over the winter months. We need both dry and wet food and donation bins are at Borough Hall. We also accept monetary donations which we will use to purchase food and for medical treatment. We want to thank all the residents who supported the TNR program at the Harvest Fest with donations and we also want to thank those who have donated food and supplies in the

past. You have no idea how much it helps. We also thank all the residents who participated in the Town Wide Yard Sale. Those proceeds go directly towards the cost of spaying and neutering feral cats. We cannot thank the community enough for all your support. If you see any stray cats in your neighborhood, please call borough hall so the information can be passed on to the TNR program. Also we are always looking for additional volunteers. If you would like to help out in any way, or for more information about upcoming events, please visit our Facebook page at



What is over 100 years old and is still a vital community active entity? The Barrington Band!

The Barrington Band is just such an entity. A musical organization for young and old that brings musical joy not only to the Barrington Township but the surrounding communities as well. It is made up of players from many communities around the New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware areas that love to volunteer their time and experience. Experience levels vary among all our players with a gentle and caring way that emphasizes practicing, playing and performing.

that has pleased generations of music lovers.

The Barrington Band requires no auditions and helps people fulfil a dream of playing music even though they have played for a long time, never played, or has not touched their instrument for years. Our musicians are in all stages of life from high school to the later stages in life and all have a passion to play and perform. Our family of players range from music teachers to retired folks from all professions. During the year, the venue changes from patriotic and show tunes to a complete holiday programs

In the past, we have had guest conductors that were truly wonderful and even some that were under 12 years old that conducted like pros! When I joined the band. I had one evening a week free and really wanted to find a place where I could begin playing my trumpet again after 25 years of raising a family and managing a consulting business. I finally talked myself into going to the rehearsal held in the senior center next to the Barrington Police department. As I pulled up to the building I heard some music that sounded familiar. It was the Washington Post March and it sounded great. I went to the door and saw a wellorganized group of musicians. I entered the building and was greeted by Penny Teter (the Musical director and Conductor). She asked me if she could help me. I said that I came to check out the band. She kindly asked me if I played an instrument. I said that I played trumpet and without a hesitation, I had multiple people ask me if I had my instrument with me and they would love to have me sit in and play. I thought it over and after their break, retrieved my trumpet from my car and played for the rest of the evening and was hooked. The history of the band goes back to 1912 where a few community members in Barrington, played a drum and a clarinet on that New Year’s Eve and had so much fun, they decided to start the band. Further history of the band can be

found on our internet site: If you would like to be a part of a wonderful community organization with values and a sincerity to help each other and the community, come out and be with us on Tuesday evenings from 730 to 930 PM you will be glad you did. The Barrington Band is providing a wonderful history that will turn into a bright and rewarding future for us all! –Bill Schafer, Trumpet

Observations on Barrington

The students who submitted essays on “What I like about living in Barrington” had many interesting observations. These students were all sixth graders last year except for one 5th grader. Following are excerpts from the essays. At the end are some excerpts from a document written about 12 years ago by a member of the Scharnagl family who was born in 1931 and grew up on Erie Avenue. She put together a 60 page compilation of her life in Barrington before she married at age 17 and moved away. Thank you to Dave Mellor, who currently lives in the home on Erie Avenue, and found the Scharnagl family story and shared it. From the student essays: Barrington is a very fun and friendly town to be a part of. There are many locations in our town that are very delightful. Isabella Scarpato Barrington is full of fun and lots of nice people! I wouldn’t imagine living in any other town. Abigail Lelionis The schools are great because the teachers are nice and (the schools) are easy to get to. Nathaniel Correa (5th grade) I appreciate living in Barrington because I feel safe…I know that the firemen and firewomen would save me …I know the police are always out making sure Barrington and everyone in it are safe, and I have neighbors, family and friends looking out for me. Kelsey Gearhart (Barrington) has great town sports, a clean environment, and a great school district. I can definitely see myself living here when I’m an adult. It is a town you never want to leave. Hannah Camarote We have friends we can hang out with. Friends that we can feel happy with. Friends that we can feel sad and cry with. Friends we can depend on and help out in bad situations. Friends we have throughout life and because Barrington is small and calm, everyone is our friend. Dominic Scheets I moved here a few years ago because my grandma lives here and I love it. Barrington people and environment are friendly. There are never any crimes or anything related to that. I have never seen a real fight in this town other than a slight push in school which is not really bad. Connor Rowand …I enjoy the friendly environment that we have. Adults and kids make donations to the environment for many things. Many adults and children volunteer for different activities and events. Many friendly businesses sponsor some of our sports groups or other things. Adam Stevens (Barrington) is an amazing and caring town. I have many friends and they don’t live far. I plan to live here for a very long time and never move away. Kylie Slemmer Here is why I love Barrington from the bottom of my heart. I love…how quiet it is. I love…the exciting festivals. I love…the great times I had at the baseball field. To the mayor if he’s reading this, I wish you the best of luck running this town! To the kids of the school if they’re reading this, good luck on your classes (including me myself!) and I wish best regards to everyone in Barrington! Griffen Scharle (Continued on next page.)

Observations on Barrington (Continued from previous page.)

I love Barrington. This is why: Barrington is a very friendly neighborhood, Wish Upon a Star Park is a good park, and the schools have nice and helpful teachers. Barrington is an all around good area to live in. Justin Agosto

Barrington’s people are so friendly. Every time I see a dog in town, I ask the owner if I can pet the dog, the owner always says yes. But I have witnessed other people outside of Barrington where they just keep walking and don’t answer me. These are the

reasons I love Barrington: the people, the events and the sports. Barrington is the best town I know of! Ryan Shuster Barrington is a great town to live in. In this town everyone knows everyone, there are great schools and sports and …

everything is close. Even though other people might think their town, schools and sports are better, I know Barrington is the best. Shannon Broderick Barrington is an amazing place. I have now lived here 9 years and I can’t imagine calling anywhere

else home. We have great restaurants. We are fairly close to most big cities and attractions. Finally, it is just an overall a great community of people. It is truly a remarkable town to live in. Sierra Gallagher

Community Bible Church

321 Kingston Ave. Barrington, NJ 08007 Voice (856) 546-6514 Pastor: Rich Archut Community Bible Church, situated on Kingston Avenue off Third Avenue, has a unique history to the town of Barrington. It is a small, friendly church that lives up to its name— Community Bible Church. This church is significant to Barrington because it is a representation of what Barrington stands for—family and unity. CBC began in a private home on Erie

Avenue in the early 1950s. After a few years, the congregation worked together to build a permanent building site for their place of worship, which was completed in 1957. Many couples that began and raised their families in Barrington also helped build the church. Pastor Archut’s grandparents and parents were among those original couples. As a result, Richard Archut became the pastor of CBC in 1997 and in 2016 was sworn in as the police department’s chaplain. If you are looking for a place to grow your family, grow as a community, and grow spiritually, Community Bible Church of Barrington is the perfect place for you.

What the heck is Kiwanis anyway?

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one community and one child at a time. Each community has different needs and Kiwanis empowers members to pursue creative ways to serve the needs of children in their community. We are a non-sectarian group of dedicated volunteers from all backgrounds and ages who come together to share our time and talents. Around the world, Kiwanis club members host around 150,000 service projects and complete 18.5 million service hours a year. Every year, Kiwanis clubs raise more than $100 million to support different causes at the local level in addition to supporting the Kiwanis Children’s Fund. Kiwanis Club of the Haddons is the local club consisting of members from Haddon Township, Haddonfield, Barrington, Cherry Hill and Collingswood. The club has been in existence for 95 years and meets every Friday at Tavistock Country Club at 12:15 for a lunch meeting. We work on planned projects each year that benefit children in our communities including Project Backpack, the Mitten Tree, Little Timber Creek Nature Trail at Devon Ave, Ronald McDonald House, Cradles to Crayons, Little Free Libraries, support of Boy Scouts and various other organizations and our signature project—the Wish Upon a Star Playground in Barrington. We are always looking for new members to join our group. If you are looking to get involved in something worthwhile that benefits children in your community and allows you to meet great new people committed to the same values you share, we may be what you are looking for. New members are welcome to come to any of our lunch meetings at Tavistock Country Club on Fridays at 12:15. Come out and meet great people dedicated to making the world a better place for the children in our communities. We would love to have you! For more information visit or

A Barrington Tradition... F

or more than a half-century, families in the Barrington area have turned to the stately white home on Clements Bridge Road in their times of sorrow. Following in the footsteps of the respected proprietors of this iconic funeral home, Kirk Popiolek has gained the trust and confidence of local residents both through his professionalism and his community involvement. Kirk works tirelesssly to help create an attractive and energetic environment for people to raise their families and prosper in the community. Under his leadership for the past decade, Popiolek Funeral Home has been host to the final respects paid to some of the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most prominent citizens. Kirk stands ready day or night to assist you with making arrangements, whether it be immediate or planning for the future. You can feel free to call us at any time for more information and neighborly advice.

Pre-planning a funeral now assures that every little detail will follow your wishes. It is human nature to put it off, but planning a funeral in advance may be just about the most considerate thing that you can do for your family and loved ones. The decisions that must be made for a funeral can be complex and confusing. Worse, in a time of grief and stress, a family may overspend. Pre-planning now relieves your family of the burden of making those decisions, as well as the uncertainty of trying to guess what you would have wanted. You can also choose to pre-pay your plan and spare them the financial hardship, as well. We would be pleased to meet with you in your own home or in our office to discuss the details. It costs nothing to talk about it, and the peace of mind you will gain is beyond measure.
