Despite Paving Delays, Harvest Festival Is Set For Saturday, October 8th
If you’ve been watching the progress of the reconstruction of Clements Bridge Road, you’ve been relieved to see that most of the blacktop has been done in time for our annual street fair, the Harvest Festival. The contractor and the County Engineer’s office worked hard to make sure that most of the repaving was finished just in time for the event. That’s important, because the festivities will take over Clements Bridge Road from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday, October 8th. It’s scheduled to stretch from the railroad tracks at Atlantic Avenue to the traffic light at Gloucester Pike.
If there are some remaining rough spots in the paving, some activities may be relocated close by. In the worst case, if the event must be moved, information will be posted on the Borough Website, as well as on signs and on the festival’s Facebook page. The committee has an extraordinary day planned, full of the traditions that have made the event such an incredible favorite for everyone. For more details, you can go to the web page at www. barringtonharvestfest.com. Rain Date: Sunday, October 9th.
Craft and Food Vendors
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 of interest to 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 down, relax and enjoy a beautiful fall day. FREE PARKING
Parking will be provided off-site at Edmund Optical

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.

JON PAUL CORMAN DAY
Hobbies (Above) Even though the parade was canceled due to inclement weather on July 1st, the committee was able to judge community floats by having the participants e-mail pictures to the Borough. They realized that groups and organizations had incurred expenses in preparing a float, so judging was done on the basis of the pictures. Here are the winners of our 2016 Parade Float Contest! Community Bible Church won first place and received $100. The Milligan Family won second place and received $50. Congratulations!
Mayor and Council Proclaim Jon Paul Corman Day.
Jon Paul Corman is 8 years old and has been a resident of Barrington since his adoption from China in March 2011. He is the loving son of Michael and Faye Corman and brother to big sister Camille, who was also adopted from China. Although legally blind from birth, at age three, through the efforts of his parents, Jon Paul was seen at Wills Eye Hospital. He had one eye removed and reconstructive surgery done on the other. After the surgery, he was able to see out of one eye. After recovery, Jon Paul’s mother enrolled him in a Special Olympics “young athletes” program, a unique sport and play program for ages 2 through 7 developed to prepare children for sports by playing games and participating in activities based on a progression of early childhood motor skills. After he turned 8 last December, his parents put him in a gymnastics class and it became evident that he had a future in the sport. Although still legally blind, his parents let him try to qualify for the state games. He qualified his very first time out and now he excels at the pommel horse and rings. In a ceremony at Borough Hall, Mayor and Council proclaimed August 9th, 2016, as Jon Paul Corman Day in Barrington. Congratulations to the Corman family!

BARRINGTON T-N-R NEWS & UPCOMING EVENTS The Barrington TNR Program has now neuter/ spayed over 300 feral cats in our community and has been successful in getting more than 120 stray and abandoned friendly cats adopted. Our feral colonies have not had any kitten births in the past two years—proof that T-N-R works! We always need volunteers to help with feeding the colonies, fostering and shelter building. 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.
Upcoming Events— September 25, Shelter Building—we will be building shelters for the colonies in the parking lot behind Borough Hall from 10am-2pm. October 2, Adoption Event—we will be participating in an adoption event at Mount Laurel Animal Hospital. October 8, Harvest
Festival—look for us in two locations at this year’s Harvest Fest. October 15, Town Wide Yard Sale—benefits the TNR Program. Participant forms are available at Borough Hall or on the website at www.barringtonboro. com. December 4, Kupcakes for Kittens/Holiday Bazaar—we will be holding our second annual Kupcakes for Kittens event along with a Holiday Bazaar where we will be selling items for purchase as holiday gifts. A great place for kids to buy gifts! Hours are planned for 1pm-4pm and the event will be held at Borough Hall. We want to thank all the residents who have donated food and supplies in the past. You have no idea how much it helps. We can always use food and/or cash donations which will go towards spaying and neutering. We cannot thank the community enough for all your support. We are always looking for new members. If you would like to help out in any way or for more information about upcoming events, please visit our Facebook page at www.fa-

As always, the Barrington TNR Volunteers are deeply grateful for the support shown by our Barrington residents. We will continue to strive to achieve our goals and mission statement! Thank you!

Beck’s Philadelphia Brigade Brass Band will be performing at our next meeting on Sunday, September 25 which will start promptly at 2:30pm at the Senior Center adjacent to the Borough Hall between Trenton and Haines Avenues. Beck’s Band plays authentic Civil War music. The band members wear period uniforms and play on Civil War instruments. The director will provide historical commentary for each piece played included a show-and-tell of each instrument. They have performed in six states and provided the music for the movie, “Gods and Generals”. The group has also played at the Philadelphia Art Museum, the Zoo, at the 2000 RNC, for the Union League, in Gettysburg, at Independence Hall and also have recorded three CDs.
Barrington Band has had an interesting season the year of 2016. We had an influx of new members in December, most of whom didn’t return in January! We begged and prayed for flute players, and in time for our late spring and summer concerts, a few fine flute players joined in! We also needed to replace the Assistant Conductor. We decided to go with several Associate Conductors, who are not actually Officers, but share the conducting with Penny Teter. We start with 4 fine conductors – Jaclyn McKeever and Karen Engelhart from the percussion section and Bill Shafer and Art Tubbs from the trumpet section. They each conducted two numbers in each concert – adding special interest to the band, and the audience! Jaclyn had to take a “leave of absence”, but the other three continue to be a big help and are doing a splendid job! We have played in the Veteran’s Home, Vineland, NJ and The Fountains, in Atco. We played patriotic music for Barrington’s Memorial Day ceremony but did not repeat it on July 3rd, due to the cancellation. Our “biggest” performance was in Cape May in early August instead of late June
Achievement, Community Service, Photogenic, Personality, Modeling, Acting, Cover Girl and Hostess Contests will be held in addition to the National Pageant Winner’s Contest. Since 1983, millions of dollars in cash awards and prizes have been presented to outstanding girls at stat and national competitions. American Coed Pageants, Inc., annually holds state pageants for the purpose of recognizing outstanding young women for their past and present accomplishments and to encourage them to set and achieve high goals for the future.
Come out and listen to some great music. Our meetings are free and open to the public. All are welcomed. The Senior Center is handicapped accessible and is adjacent to a parking lot. Light refreshments will be served following the concert. Stop at our table and say hello to us at the Harvest Fest on Saturday, October 8. We’d love to talk to you and perhaps reminisce about old times. One of us will know you or a neighbor of yours. We’ll have items for sale and photos to look at. Our next meeting will be Sunday, November 13, 2:30pm at the Senior Center.
because of the demolition of the old gazebo and construction of the new one, plus a much needed ramp and a fountain. The new Gazebo is beautiful, but needs more lights and railings! We had a fine concert of Show Tunes, and played for an hour and a half beginning at 7 PM instead of the old starting time of 8 PM. This gave us more light and got us home earlier. The Mayor gave us special oral commendation afterward! In September we are planning to play a slightly different show tune concert in St. Mary’s, and Riverview Estates, where we will play show tunes and patriotic songs for two hours. We will “finish” our show tunes season at The Evergreens. Our Christmas season will begin on Nov. 22 at 7:30 p.m., with a concert in the Senior Room in Barrington! You are invited to come hear us! We will also present our Christmas concert at Wiley, St. Mary’s, The Fountains, and Riverview Estates! Please check our website for starting times. The year 2016 has been an interesting year for our 104 year old Barrington Band! We are looking forward to Barrington’s Centennial in 2017.

A.B.L.E. Thanks Mail Carriers, Students, and Residents For Generosity
On Saturday, May 14th, hundreds of Barrington residents filled bags with non-perishable food items and put them out on their doorsteps for the local Mail Carriers to collect. The bags were dropped off at Borough Hall, where volunteers were standing by to sort and store the food for distribution to folks in need in the community. The food and household items were added to the donations collected by the Boy Scouts last fall, and by the students of Avon and Woodland Schools in the spring. Over the following weeks, volunteers checked the expiration dates of the items, and prepared bags of food and cleaning supplies to be distributed. On Saturday, June 11th, residents who had expressed a need for the food were invited to come to Borough Hall, where they each received two large bags containing tuna, cereal, pasta, vegetables, and cleaning items. They were all very pleased, and passed along their thanks to the Mail Carriers and the residents of Barrington for their continued generosity.

SERVING BARRINGTON SINCE 1957 Boy Scout Troop 96 of Barrington is looking for energetic boys, age eleven and up or having completed the sixth grade who want to have an exciting and memorable time that will enlighten them for a lifetime! Boys will learn woods skills, camping, cooking, citizenship, self reliance and leadership just to name a few while having fun in the great outdoors. We have already planned our calendar for the 2016 - 2017 Scouting year and have an exciting program planned, complete with camping every month. Our first trip will be the weekend of October 9 - 10, where we will be whitewater rafting on the Lehigh River. If your son would like to experience all the things that a boy can only learn in Scouting, please visit our Troop Meetings from 7:30 to 9:00PM on Sunday evenings at the Senior Center at Borough Hall on Trenton Avenue. We will also be doing a good turn for the borough of Barrington. We will be distributing bags for “Scouting For Food” on Saturday, November 12. We ask that you fill these bags with non-perishable food items (no glass containers please) and we will pick them up on the following Saturday, November 19. This food will be staying in our town of Barrington for the needy. Please give generously.
If you have any questions regarding Scouting and Troop 96, please contact Phil Snyder, Scoutmaster at 546-9370. Thank You!

Acting Chief for the Barrington Police Department David Uron invited the citizens of the town to join him, the Fire Company, the Ambulance Squad, and other First Responders and Law Enforcement agencies at the Second Annual National Night Out at the Wish Upon a Star Park and Barrington Softball Field. National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live.
There were tables set up down the path from the Barrington Softball snack stand to the Wish Upon a Star Park. The Police Department had a dunk tank. There were bounce houses, balloon artists, and face painters generously donated by the Barrington Drug Alliance which has been a blessing. Josh Liss returned as our DJ. Many businesses and

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€™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.
