Small-Town Patriotism Flourishes In Borough There are larger towns than Barrington, and they may have impressive observances of Memorial Day and Independence Day, but they would be hard-pressed to match the patriotism and enthusiasm displayed by our citizens on these meaningful holidays. Some may call it “small town America,” but there’s no other place on earth to be when they strike up the band. The band, of course, is the Barrington Band, our ambassadors of good will throughout the region. As usual, they were on hand and in tune for both events. Memorial Day The day began on a more solemn note at the Fire House, where Fire Company No. 1’s members lined up in dress uniform to honor First Responders everywhere, and to remember local volunteers who have passed away. After the placing of wreaths, the participants made their way to Borough Hall for the town’s War Memorial Services. After the raising of the flag by Boy Scout Troop 96, and the playing of the National Anthem by the Barrington Band, the assembled crowd was greeted by Mayor Robert Klaus. The Mayor introduced our Guest Speaker, State Senator Nilsa Cruz-Perez, herself a Barrington resident and US Army Veteran. In an impassioned plea, she urged all present to remember those who have served to protect our freedoms. (Continued on Page 9)

Annual Harvest Festival Is Big Local Favorite

Barrington’s 18th Annual Harvest Festival is set for Saturday, October 11th. The event takes over Clements Bridge Road from the railroad tracks at Atlantic Avenue to the traffic light at Gloucester Pike.

For more details, go to the web page at Craft and Food Vendors Invited There will be blocks and blocks of arts and crafts, gifts, food, novelties, a wandering juggler and socializing galore. As in the past, there will be more than 200 different vendors, so there is sure to be something for everyone including Halloween items, jewelry, Autumn merchandise, local organizations and businesses, and a wide variety of snacks and desserts —with two separate food court areas to sit, relax and enjoy a beautiful fall day.

The Mayor’s Desk

Robert Klaus, Mayor

Greetings Neighbors and Friends and Happy Autumn! Well we survived the summer heat and are looking forward to the cool breezes of the fall. All in all it has been a great summer here in the Borough of Barrington. There have been a number of projects and

events since last time we communicated in the BOT so let’s go through a little rundown. Barrington Day was a great day as always and was well attended. There were plenty of activities and entertainment for kids and adults alike and I would like to thank those groups, organizations and volunteers for their participation in helping to make the day a success. Woodland School 8th grade graduation was a very enjoyable evening celebrating the moving on to high school with the graduates and their families. Congratulations to a great group of high school students. Go Warriors!

Barrington A.B.L.E. Group--this group of volunteers is made up of residents whose sole purpose is to assist their friends and neighbors in need. Answers, Benevolence, Liberation and Education– we help those in need to achieve each of these goals while on their way back to a normal living situation. We are currently extremely low in our food inventory. (See Page 15.) Also if you are able to help, we desperately need donations of gift certificates from local grocery stores (Shop Rite, Wal-mart, Rite Aid, Dollar General, etc.) just to name a few. If at all possible, denominations of $10 or $20 dollars will go a long way with the bags of food we are distributing.

If you are in need of assistance please don’t hesitate to call (856) 547-8585. The USDA funded infrastructure project on Kingston and Thomas Avenues involved replacement of the sewer mains under those streets as well as roadway reconstruction. This is a project for which we received a low-interest loan of more than two million dollars from the USDA “Rural Development” program that allows us to perform sorely needed sewer infrastructure upgrades. This project also includes abandonment of the Willows pump station. These projects are very nearly complete and we would sincerely like to thank our residents for their patience during construction—we

Do You Need the Fall “Function Better Program”? Each fall, many folks enjoy activities such as going for cool afternoon walks as the leaves are falling, attending football or soccer games, raking leaves, picking pumpkins, tending to some gardening prior to winter and even doing some early Christmas shopping in town. If you find yourself in a position where the bending, endurance, balance, standing, walking and climbing requirements of these activities may be too difficult, too painful or even impossible, the “Function Better Program” at WORK-UP PHYSICAL THERAPY may be just what you need in order to have a fantastic fall season! 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 fall 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:

Our Independence Day Celebrations were again a great success, from the parade which takes place the evening before the 4th of July and the fireworks which followed at dusk. The parade, which traveled down Clements Bridge Road to Gloucester Pike and turned into the “Old Gardens” section, seemed to last forever. Congratulations to the winners of the float contest, Community Bible Church and Barrington Girls Softball. Each of the events were very (Continued on Page 9)

Fifth Graders Complete D.A.R.E. Course

The 2014-2015 Barrington fifth graders had reason to celebrate. They completed a year-long “Too Good for Drugs” curriculum taught by Detective Kelly of Barrington Police. The Woodland School and Castle Academy students not only learned about the hazards of tobacco, alcohol, and drugs use but they learned the importance of confidence, developed decision making skills, and practiced conflict resolution. The lessons are fun, full of information, and practical skills needed to tackle the obstacles facing them in upcoming years. During the year, a bond forms between the students, the schools, and the police that make them partners for a life time in making the community a better, safer place. To honor all their hard work and cooperation graduations were held. These graduations were full of fun, food, awards, and give aways. All of this is possible with sponsorships and donations from the Barrington Drug Alliance, The Little Tuna of Haddonfield, and Deluxe Bakery of Runnemede.

FALL, 2015

The Mayor’s Desk, Continued well attended and this was the fireworks show was the best around (of course I’m a little impartial). Thank you to Councilwoman Nicholson, our Police Department, our Public Works Department and to our Fire Marshall, Steve DePierri, for making this year’s celebration a great success. Public Works was very busy this summer maintaining vacant properties throughout town in addition to maintaining our parks and borough facilities and all their normal recycling and highway duties. Maintaining vacant properties is becoming an increasingly difficult problem. We don’t always know when there is a property maintenance issue unless it is reported to us by our residents so please let us know if you see a property that needs attention. Wish Upon a Star Playground was built in 1996 and is showing its age. The wooden playground structures need to be replaced. We met with General Recreation and they have provided three different plans for replacement of the playground. We are currently reviewing available funding and will be holding public meetings so our residents can have input on which plan is selected. More information to come. The White Horse Pike - It is my great pleasure to thank Council President Popiolek for his perseverance and hard work in seeing the White Horse Pike Redevelopment Project finally come to fruition! If you drive on the Pike, you will see the Wawa going up very quickly. It took a long time to get here but it is finally happening and is very exciting to see.

Hopefully, sometime next year we will see the final phase of the project, construction of a restaurant, also come to fruition thus finally completing this major redevelopment project. We also thank all of our professionals and Borough staff for all their work on this ten-year project. Centennial Committee - It sounds funny to hear that this municipality will be incorporated 100 years very soon. As a matter of fact, we will celebrate the centennial in 2017.

Patriotism, Continued

Harvest Festival, Continued

Members of the VFW and VFW Auxiliary then placed wreaths at the War Memorials. A few short weeks later, Independence Day dawned warm and clear as participants prepared for our annual parade. Our Police, Firefighters, and Ambulance Volunteers shined up their vehicles and waited to be joined at 6:30 pm by our local sports teams, elected officials, and civic organizations. A long line of antique cars and roadsters added some flavor. Our Parade Marshal was Rachel McCleary, who is the sister of two of our Volunteer Firefighters. She is under treatment for ovarian cancer, and we wish her well. Music was provided by the Hegeman String Band and the marching band and drill team from Camden High School. The Governing Body’s decision a couple of years ago to hold the parade and fireworks the day before the Fourth has met with favorable reaction. By starting the festivities on the evening of the Third, spectators are able to enjoy cooler temperatures and view the parade in comfort. Most then gather up their chairs and head to Woodland School for a concert by the Barrington Band leading up to the ever-popular fireworks display. The idea has become so popular, in fact, that the Borough of Runnemede contributes to the cost of the fireworks so that their residents could be welcomed to join us. At dusk, the crowd was treated to a spectacular show of dazzling colors and effects that added to the patriotic feeling of the season.

in front of the Old Rail Tavern, and the main stage in front of the B-Corner Market will feature a variety of acts, on Second Avenue will feature a Petting Zoo and entertainment for the little ones. The committee is grateful to their Gold Sponsors PBA Local 328 and Colonial National Bank for their sponsorship of the event. Kids’ Section The Kids’ Section will be located in the municipal parking area at 2d & Trenton Avenue, behind the First Methodist Church. The inflatable bounces are always a big hit and will be back again. You will also find the traditions that have been favorites for many years – petting zoo, hayride, pony rides, rock climb, and other fun activities. There will be a new event this year, also. It’s a Kids’ Cupcake Bake-Off. You can get details at the website:

Basket Auction There will be an even bigger and better Basket Auction this year with lots of fantastic prizes. Clubs and organizations, as well as the Festival vendors, participate by donating valuable prizes of all kinds. The prizes are gathered into gift bags, and you drop your tickets into numbered buckets to win one. For More Information: For general information, please check out the new website at You can email organizers at, and you can also check out the Harvest Festival’s Facebook page with photos from past years, too! (https://www. Be sure to come to Clements Bridge Road in Barrington on Saturday, October 10th and enjoy the fun! The rain date is Sunday, October 11th.

This unit was installed just prior to the opening of schools in the hopes that it makes motorists aware of their speed and to remind them to please slow down, since kids are once again walking to and from school.

Marissa Beebe Steps Up

Marissa Beebe has had quite the summer. Upon completing her junior year at Haddon Heights High School, Marissa headed straight to Georgian Court College to attend New Jersey Girls State. This is a distinguished accomplishment as Marissa had to be nominated by staff at HHHS, interviewed and accepted by the VFW Post 38 members, and make a commitment to attend the week long festivities that provide a solid foundation of our government and its impact on youth in America. After her time at Girls State, Marissa stepped up to the plate with her travel softball team playing games across the east coast and as far south as Myrtle Beach. Marissa is a two sport athlete at Heights, also playing basketball, and hopes to wrap up her excellent career at Heights with playoff appearances for both teams.

Nick Sciortino plays Summer Ball in Cape Cod League

Barrington Little League graduate as well as Haddon Heights High School graduate Nick Sciortino is

about to enter his junior year at Boston College where he is a catcher for the Eagles. This summer Nick played in the esteemed Cape Cod League and performed quite well. Nick has worked hard, honing his skills, and it is possible he will be considered in next Spring’s Major League Baseball draft. If you are on twitter you can follow his progress by searching for the Boston College Baseball program…Nick had a distinguished career at Heights, finishing with over 100 hits, and was in attendance this past May as Heights claimed a SJ Group 1 championship.

Dean Wilson Signs Deal

Another Barrington Little League graduate, as well as Haddon Heights High School graduate, Dean Wilson recently signed a professional contract to play baseball for the Evansville Otters of the Frontier League. In the spring Dean graduated from Oral Roberts University, and waited to see if his name would be called in the MLB draft. When it wasn’t Dean took the next step, signing with Evansville where he is expected to play at shortstop, third base as well as second base.

Dean has his average up to .280 and says the ball is great but those bus rides on road trips can test any one’s patience. If you are interested in keeping up with Dean’s progress, google up Evansville Otters baseball or Frontier League Baseball.

11-0 in game #2 at Washington Township to win the Championship! Overall record was 13-4-1. This is the 3rd Championship for this group of girls over the past 5 seasons. Barrington is very proud of all our young ladies.

They played hard and beat #2 seed Gloucester Township 6-3 in game #1, and 6-4 in game #2 to advance to the Championship.

Barrington Band

By: Jaclyn E McKeever, Percussion, Vocalist and Recording Secretary Barrington Band is a community band that consists of volunteers from Barrington and the Southern Jersey Area. We love to play classic band music and are currently offering three programs this Season; our Patriotic Set, our Animal Theme Set and ending in December with our Holiday Set. We are approximately a 40piece band and offer Brass and Woodwind Sections, in addition to our Percussion Section, which currently holds our newest and youngest members of our band, two are 10 and one is 12 years old, and play our Percussion Instruments. We are very proud of all of our members, but especially our youngest, as they are the next generation of the Barrington Band. We are currently beginning our next hundred years of service (although most of us won’t be around to witness the wonderful longevity)! We celebrated our first Centennial Anniversary a few years ago. One of our Concerts this summer was in Cape May on June 6th, our annual Concert in the Gazebo near the Mall. Some of us were

able to enjoy the beautiful ocean (although a bit cold yet) before our Concert at 8pm. We played our Animal Theme Concert and had quite an audience laughing at our bear growls and cat meows. We also took out our dog barks and wind whistled our way through some of our songs. Our Auxiliary Percussion Section (our youngest and brightest) had quite a bit of fun. A few of our other concerts this summer included June 23rd at Collingswood Manor, the Annual Fireworks Show behind Woodland School on July 3rd, Riverview Estates on July 7th, National Night Out on August 4th, and most recently a new venue: The Fountains at Cedar Parke in Atco on August 25th. Our last performance of the current program is Wiley Christian Retirement Community in Marlton on September 8th. It will complete our Spring to Fall Season, as we look forward to our Holiday Concerts. We hope to see you at one of our upcoming concerts, beginning at 7pm! If anyone is interested in joining our band, please contact our faithful and dedicated Conductor, Penny Teter, at pennyteter@ . We always welcome new members! We rehearse on Tuesday nights from 7:30 to 9:30pm in the Barrington Senior

Around The Town BBA Seeks Barrington New Members, Residents New Ideas Open Unusual

The Barrington Business Association meets monthly to foster co-operation among the local businesses and government. Topics of discussion often include how technology can help small businesses, and how the BBA can work together to promote events to stimulate the local economy. New members and new ideas are always welcome. Annual dues are just $25, and include listings published in Barrington’s On Track and participation in events like Barrington Day and the Harvest Festival. Meetings are scheduled at a variety of times so business owners can attend more easily. Some are held early in the morning, some in the late afternoon, and others in the evening. If you have an interest in attending, send your e-mail address to Amanda Hunt at Novella’s Ice Creamery (novellas312@hotmail. com) to be notified about dates and times.

Shop In Atlantic City

Randy & Lynn Giandonato and business partner and longtime friend, Richard Kromer have opened The Beef Jerky Outlet, a specialty retail store with wall-to-wall jerky in over 200 flavors and varieties from mild to wild. They also carry gourmet popcorn, sauces, seasonings, marinades and so much more. Lynn and Randy first saw a beef jerky outlet in Ashland, Va, when their son, Dominic,

was playing in a baseball tournament for his travel team, the SJ Bulldogs. They immediately fell in love with the store when they walked in because it had everything they loved, from all the varieties of jerky and dry rubs, hot sauces to popcorn. They discovered it was a franchise and decided to look into it. They also took the idea to Kromer. “We’ve known Rick

since 5th grade and have stayed in touch after all these years. Rick is very businessoriented and also owns his own business. So when we ran the idea past him, he was curious. He was sold on the business when he saw them at the franchise expo in NY and how popular they were. After we sat down and did our business and financial plan, we agreed this would be a business we could definitely do.” They signed their lease with Tanger in May, and

opened on Friday, July 17, 2015. Recently, they were featured on Channel 6 News. They are also a proud sponsor of Haddon Heights Baseball. Beef Jerky Outlet is at the Tanger Outlets in Atlantic City, across from the new Bass Pro Shop. 9 N. Christopher Columbus Blvd., Atlantic City, NJ 08401

Garnet Youth Football SENIOR SERVICES – ENTITLEMENTS: ARE YOU A SENIOR CITIZEN? You May Be Entitled to the Following Services and Program at Specific Ages:

Dear Business Owner: We’re writing you this letter in order to introduce you to our organization, Garnet Youth Football. Our organization is comprised of kids aged five to fourteen from the towns of Barrington, Haddon Heights and Lawnside. We compete in the South Jersey Independent Youth Football Association. Last year our 80, 95 and 110 pound teams had very successful seasons and all of them made the League Championship game and our 65 pound team finished undefeated. We’re hoping for continued success this season. As you probably know, organizations such as ours regularly need to raise funds to help out with operating expenses such as insurance, equipment, uniforms and also to help out with some youths who can’t afford the registration fees associated with joining one of our teams. So, from time to time, we ask companies such as yours to consider lending some financial support through our numerous sponsorship opportunities. On a separate page there is a description of some sponsorship levels we have predefined. We are of course open to other levels of support as well. Please note we are a fully insured non-profit organization and can provide additional information if needed. We hope you consider helping us in our fundraising efforts and thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely, Tom Dinella, Treasurer, Garnet Youth Football

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 community’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.
