Official Barrington Borough News Holiday Issue, 2015

After you put away the turkey leftovers, hide your Black Friday bargains, and dig out some holiday ornaments, it’s time to bundle up the kids, grab a blanket, and head for your favorite parade-watching spot! It all starts on “Black Friday,” November 27th, about 6:30 pm. That’s when Santa switches on the lights in front of Borough Hall and Barrington will begin celebrating the Holiday Season. If you’ve never seen Santa Claus arrive in his noisy Firetruck Parade, this is the year to join in the fun! The parade will begin around 7:00 pm, and fire companies from all over the area decorate their emergency vehicles with thousands of lights and

parade them down Clements Bridge Road with horns and sirens blaring. They follow the traditional holiday parade route down Clements Bridge Road and Gloucester Pike to Reading Avenue, and back to the firehouse. The parade usually has marching bands and community groups, and the glow of the holiday lights is inspiring. The Jolly Old Elf arrives on a fire truck and everyone enjoys hot chocolate and cookies at the firehouse, compliments of Santa and Barrington Fire Co. #1. A perfect start to the Holiday Season!

There will also be a Giving Tree at Borough Hall again this year. Stop by and pick up a gift tag from the tree that will specify the age and gender of a person in need. When you shop for a gift, wrap it, and attach the tag to it, and return it to Borough Hall by December 18th. The A.B.L.E. Group will see that it gets to a deserving recipient by Christmas morning.


For many years, Mayor Klaus has organized the town’s Care & Share Program benefiting deserving families in Barrington and at the Osbourne Clinic at Lourdes Hospital in Camden. Businesses, organizations, and families volunteer to sponsor an entire family for the holidays. They receive the wish lists of everyone in the family –with first names, genders, and sizes only– and then go shopping. The gifts are returned to the Mayor’s Office by December 18th, and are delivered before Christmas. It’s guaranteed to give you that Holiday spirit! mORE hOLIDAY NEWS ON PAgE 4

Barrington Police Officers Kelly and Rabena were honored recently for their response to a call for emergency service. A tree had taken down the high power electric lines the length of Bell Avenue. The officers came across a downed wire that was arcing in front of the dwelling, between the front steps of the home and a parked minivan that was directly out front. During the course of the call the downed wire continually arced to the point of setting the shrubbery and porch of the dwelling on fire. Ultimately energizing the entire structure to the point that electric could be seen arcing over the exterior aluminum siding of the home. The home eventually became a fully involved house fire. Officers Kelly and Rabena entered the dwelling from the rear of the property and successfully evacuated the residents and got them to safety without thought to their own safety or well-being. It was the actions of these two officers that facilitated the Cruz Family getting out of their burning home alive. Sgt. Scardino (right) of the Haddon Heights Police Department presented awards to Off. Rabena (left) and Cpl. Kelly (center), on behalf of PBA Local 328.

Barrington Historical Society

It’s the time of year for nostalgia of past holidays with friends and family, old time customs and thoughts of youthful times. In our town, since 1931, Santa Claus has ridden around atop a fire truck distributing candy to girls and boys. That first year, 700 boxes of candy were given out. Santa and his firemen elves now hand out candy canes and it just wouldn’t seem like Christmas without seeing the jolly man in the red outfit waving as he comes down your street to the delight of everyone. Thank you to our fire department for continuing this tradition for over 80 years. Another organization very involved in your borough is the Barrington Historical Society. Next

year will be our 50th anniversary. Formed in 1966, our first president was William Farr who grew up here and was always very interested in local history. He wrote a book called, “ Place Names In and Around Haddonfield”. Eugene Schmidt was also an instrumental founding member and one of the first officers. In 1992, “History of Barrington, New Jersey”, written by members was published. In 2005, “History of the Barrington Airport”, also written by members was printed. We have four meetings a year and meet in the Senior Center on Haines Avenue on Sunday afternoons at 2:30pm. We are open to the public and all are welcome. The Senior Center is fully handicapped accessible with an adjacent parking lot. Light refreshments are served. Bring a friend!

The Barrington Band

The Barrington Band recently finished a fine summer season of playing “Animal Theme” concerts. The concerts were well received, and the BB has been invited back to several great venues. In social news, we had a pre-wedding party for our wonderful percussionist, Karen, after a recent rehearsal. The cake was beautiful! Everyone had a great time, and she liked her gifts! Linda Wogan, Mike’s wife, came by and took some great snapshots at the party. We made a poster, and have added it to our BB memory collection! We recently welcomed two new playing members: Nicole on flute, and Steve on alto sax! They came to us via our website!

We are now working on our Christmas music. Our Christmas concert season starts Nov. 17 at 7 PM, with a performance in the auditorium at the Veterans’ Memorial Home, Vineland NJ, where Penny Teter’s husband, Howard, lives. The residents always enjoy that concert! We will probably have pizza after the concert to celebrate Howard’s 79th birthday! Nov. 24 we will play at Wiley Christian Home, in Marlton at 7 PM, in their beautiful church sanctuary. Dec. 8 we will be at St. Mary’s, Cherry Hill at 6 PM, Dec. 15 at 7:30 PM at The Ev-



ergreens, Moorestown, and finally on Dec. 22 at our newest venue, The Fountains at Cedar Parke, in Atco at 7 PM, where one of our members, Joe Contino, lives with his wife, Marge. Because our schedule filled up so fast this year, we could not book our traditional Barrington concert and party. However, you are invited to attend any of the above concerts to hear our Christmas music! The next opportunity to hear the Barrington Band in town will be in early January, at the Political Reorganization meeting in Barrington Council Room.

T-N-R Gets Ready For Winter...

The Barrington TNR Program (Trap-NeuterRelease) has now neuter/ spayed over 200 feral cats in our community and has been successful in getting many stray and abandoned friendly cats adopted. Our feral colonies are growing and volunteers work daily to feed the colonies and provide medical treatment when needed. With winter coming, we are in dire need of donations to be able to keep the 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.

On Sunday, October 25, volunteers worked all day building shelters for the

feral cats at the various colony locations. We especially want to thank Mr. Roberts Lumber for the generous donation of all the lumber necessary to build the traps. We also want to thank Barrington Public Works for delivering the shelters to the various locations and allowing us to store the remaining lumber at the DPW yard. We will be building more shelters with the remaining lumber in the very near future.

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.
