SPRING, 2017

The Mayor’s Desk

Mayor Robert Klaus Neighbors and Friends! Celebrate--this is Barrington’s 100th year since being incorporated in March of 1917. There will be several events throughout the year where the theme of the event will be the Centennial. We will be unveiling the Centennial

Clock Park on March 27 on Clements Bridge Road across from Borough Hall. We are still looking for individuals and organizations as well as businesses to get involved so please become a Centennial Celebrator. We meet the third Wednesday of each month. Our first big event this year will be the Centennial Social on March 25. This adult social will be held at Avon School. Tickets are available and more information is on the Centennial pages in this issue. All of our holiday events this year (Independendence Day, Harvest Fest, Barrington Day, Black Friday Fire Truck Parade) will have a Centennial theme. So please visit our

website at for more information. Redevelopment along White Horse Pike – we are awaiting the construction phase of the new restaurant next to the WAWA, “Wild Wings Café”, a chain from down south, which will be opening for business in late spring of 2017. These types of restaurants are very successful and this location fits very well with this type of venue. We welcome “Wild Wings Café” and wish them all the best here in Barrington. Completed Road Construction and Streetscape Work – We would like to thank the Camden County Board of Chosen Freeholders for their help with

Clements Bridge Road as without their assistance this would never have been possible. If you have not driven down Clements Bridge Road recently, please do if you have a chance. The Streetscape is complete and what a site to see the lamp lined street at night. What a great job! We are patiently waiting for PSE&G to complete their project of relining gas lines and installing new service connections. We have been told these connections will be completed when the weather is more conducive. We want to thank our municipal engineers, KEI Engineers for their duediligence and persistence in working with PSE&G.

Do You Need the Spring “Function Better Program”? As the weather warms and the flowers bloom, there is an increasing desire to spend time outdoors. Gardening activities, walks in the park, outdoor grilling and playing games with young children are some of the activities that many people enjoy each spring. If you are having trouble with pain, endurance, bending, reaching, squatting and other movements that these activities may require, the “Function Better Program” at WORK-UP PHYSICAL THERAPY may be just what you need in order to have a fantastic spring 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 spring session of the “Function Better Program” are limited and filling quickly. To reserve a slot for the program, call (856) 546-0377.

If you are remodeling yourself or using a private contractor and will be in excess of the amount described herein you will need to arrange for private disposal. SINGLE STREAM RECYCLING: Since December 2007 our Recycling Contractor South Jersey Sanitation has been picking up your mixed paper and commingle and disposing of the two together in one truck as opposed to two separate trucks for each item. This is possible due to technology at the recycling plant that allows the processing of both items mixed together. The benefits of this technology is in most cases, dramatic savings occur because one truck can now collect both fibers and containers on the same pass. This reduces collection and labor costs, minimizes impact on neighborhoods and residents, reduces air pollution and noise, etc. Another important benefit is that history has demonstrated that convenience to residents in a single stream program increases recycle tonnage by as much as 15% to 30%. Residents can now mix their newsprint, junk mail, corrugated, bottles and cans together in the same container for storage and collection. This increased diversion from the waste stream will assist in meeting the State of New Jersey’s recycling goal of 50%. The Borough of Barrington pays for trash pickup and disposal at a per ton fee and these fees increase every year, so the less trash and the more recycling equals saved tax dollars. PLEASE RECYCLE!

Barrington Borough political reorganization meeting on January 8th, and we look forward to helping make Memorial Day, Independence Day, and the Christmas season special as well. As the Barrington Band roars into its 103rd year, 2017 promises to be an impressive season, featuring, as always, great music, well played, to appreciative audiences. However, as we gear up, we recognize that we need more players, especially flutes, clarinets, double reeds and percussion. Please consider coming out to play in the Barrington Band; we need you! If you played an instrument in high school, please come out and join us. We rehearse at the Barrington Borough Hall Senior Center every Tuesday evening from 7:30 to 9:30. There are no auditions, and everyone is heartily welcome. Besides rehearsals and concerts, we also have various socials throughout the year. The Barrington Band provides a great opportunity to make new friends, enjoy playing music together, and give back to this wonderful community. You will be glad you came!

Little League Alumnus Barrington’s Dean Wilson Still Playing Ball! Although it’s been over a decade since Dean Wilson played as a twelve year-old in Barrington Little League, he is still on the ballfield playing the game he loves. I recently caught up with Dean, and in a candid interview he talked about baseball and life and how much the game has given to him. Question: What has baseball provided you? Dean: Baseball has done amazing things for me in life. I’ve played all over the country and met a lot of great people. It led me to Oklahoma where I met my wife. Baseball has also taught me how to deal with failure and remaining strong and persistent in the face of adversity. I owe a lot of who I am today to baseball. Question: Where do you see baseball taking you in the future? Dean: I hope that baseball continues to open new doors for me just as it has done my whole life. When I get older I want to give back to the game and provide the same type of positive influence for younger players who have the same dream I had when I was their age. Question: As a player for the Lancaster Barnstormers of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball, describe a typical week in the life of a ballplayer. Dean: A typical week for me during the season is pretty much centered around baseball. Up early in the morning to work out or run, and maybe attend a community ob-

ligation. Take some time to grab something to eat then get to the field by 130 or 2pm. Hang out there, take infield and hit, then it’s game time at 7pm, and then back home by 11pm. Catch up with family and my wife until bedtime. If we are playing away I’m up even earlier to catch a team bus or a flight. That’s my Monday through Saturday. Sunday day games are tough because you have a 7pm game Saturday night and are usually back at the field by 9:30 am. Sunday morning for a 1pm game. You maintain that schedule for two weeks and then get a Monday off and start all over again. But if you love the game then you don’t mind the grind. Question: What words of encouragement do you have for the little leaguers and high school ballplayers who have the dream of playing professional

baseball? Dean: If you really want something go for it. People are going to try to tell you “No” every step of the way, but that should change nothing. What dictates your future and how far you go is how much work you put in, and how dedicated you are to your craft, and how much you demand of yourself every day. With that being said, you need to have fun too because it needs to be a positive experience. Be humble, and learn to enjoy the work and the success that comes with it. Dean is currently weighing his options for this upcoming baseball season. He recently married his college sweetheart Sara whom he met while they were students at Oral Roberts University. Life changes have been positive, and Dean wants to see what’s next on his journey.

The 2016 season saw the Barrington girls win the GSA 15U Championship and the UGSL 10U Championship, which was an all-Barrington contest.

On February 11th, a Texas Hold-Em tournament and beef and beer with live music will be held at the Haddon Township Knights of Columbus. In June, the BGSL will hold its 2nd annual Fun Day as part of the town’s year-long centennial celebration.

This event will include an alumni game that features former players from across several decades, a tournament, a beer garden with live music, and games for the kids. Further information and tickets for these events and others can be found on the league website at To top off the 2017 season, Barrington will host its inaugural end-of-season allstar tournament.

Barrington: Small Town With A Big Heart Barrington may not be a large town, but you’d never know it if you judge by the generosity of its citizens. Starting in the spring, residents left canned goods and non-perishable food items on their front steps for the Mail Carriers to collect. These donations were added to the food and cleaning supplies picked up by the Boy Scouts in the fall, and the A.B.L.E. pantry was restocked and ready to help local individuals and families in need by the week before Christmas. Volunteers from the community and members of the Garnet and Gold Society teamed up to sort and bag the food for distribution. In all, nearly fifty people received two shopping bags each full of nourishment and holiday needs. Meanwhile, the Mayor’s Office was working on another successful year of the Care ‘n’ Share program that matches needy families with generous sponsor who provide gifts and food to make the holidays happier for some two dozen deserving families. The gifts are distributed locally, as well as to families served by the Osbourne Clinic at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital. Residents also donated gifts under the Giving Tree at borough hall, and Barrington Fire Company No. 1 chipped in with piles of toys and gifts as well. By the time Old St. Nick returned to the North Pole, Barrington’s residents had shown once again their true holiday spirit.

A Barrington Tradition...


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.
