The Mayor’s Desk


Mayor Robert Klaus Dear Neighbors and Residents of Barrington-I’m breaking from the usual boring Mayors Letter to talk about Barrington’s Centennial. What great events we have had so far, this year, starting with reorganization, the Centennial Dinner, Barrington Day, and just recently the Memorial Day Ceremony.

The Centennial Committee still meets the third Wednesday of each month-keep track of the events. This gives the residents an opportunity to volunteer to help without the longterm commitment. Keep up to date on the upcoming events on Barringtonboro web site, or call the Borough for dates and times. Thank you everyone on the Centennial Committee

and all the volunteers who helped with the different events. Come to meeting and meet some of these great residents, friends, and neighbors. The next celebration will be Independence Day, with the new Clock dedication, followed by the Parade, and the Fireworks which are on the 3rd of July. The Barrington Band will also be performing behind Woodland School before the fireworks. If you have not done so already, you can purchase a Centennial paver to go around the new Clock, a Clock sponsorship which will be part of a plaque that will be on the clock, or a street banner to be displayed the remainder of the year and in succes-

sive years up and down Clements Bridge Road. Contact Terry Shannon at Borough Hall for more information about pavers, plaques and banners. WHITE HORSE PIKE CORRIDOR:

SUMMER, 2017

Centennial Celebration Continues... PHOTO


Centennial Social at Avon School

Historical Society: Happy 100th Birthday, Barrington!

We’ve come a long way in a hundred years. Things were a little different in town in 1917. We were part of Centre Township until then. The roads were dirt with no curbs. With no mail home delivery, residents picked up their mail at the postmaster’s house. The train and trolley made regular runs through town carrying freight and passengers. Students attended School #1, where the present Borough Hall is now located, a four room schoolhouse. School #2 (Culbertson School) was built this year, another four room schoolhouse. A city water system began to be installed although it was not until the early 1930’s that the entire town had running water. Policemen had no uniforms but were supplied with caps and night sticks. Police were equipped with six lanterns but they had to buy their own kerosene. Many complaints were about pigs and chickens roaming the streets until residents were made to tie up animals. Four stop signs were installed and the speed limit was 12 mph. Warnings for speeding were regular issued. The first motor driven fire truck was purchased this year along with 500 feet of hose. A forty gallon chemical tank, hose rack and ladders were installed on the truck. The population was about 1,000 compared to the 6,800 today. A grocery, general and other small stores were located on Clements Bridge Road by the railroad. A lot has changed but a lot has stayed the same. It’s still a small friendly town where neighbors help neighbors. At our next meeting on Sunday, September 24, we’ll have another, “Around the Town in Time”, a slide presentation showing places and scenes from our past. And Sunday, November 19, Robert Shinn will be with us again to talk about Petty’s Island. Both will be interesting programs. We meet at 2:30pm at the Senior Center on Haines Avenue. Check out the display cabinet in the Council Room for a patriotic exhibit this summer followed by a school items in the fall.

Time Capsule Reveals Artifacts From 1992

Twenty-five years ago, the 75th Anniversary Committee deposited items and memorabilia into a time capsule to be opened 25 years later. That was 1992 and that time capsule was unearthed this past March. The items were a little worse for the wear of time and moisture but mostly intact and a great reminder of the history and the progress made by our Barrington community. The items are on display at the Borough Hall. As we celebrate our 100th year in 2017, we will prepare another time capsule to be sealed at the end of this year. The Centennial Committee is looking for suggestions and/or donations for the time capsule. Please contact Fran Gomolson, street46@aol. com, 856-577-5826, no later than June 3. We welcome your ideas! As the children watched the items coming out of the time capsule from 1992, many wondered about the VCR tapes and the cassettes for tape recorders. What will the group gathered in 2042 wonder about when they open our 2017 time capsule?!

 (The Mayor’s Desk,

continued from Page 2) by the end of the summer. We hope there may be residents interested in an apartment in town--you can contact the construction department for contact information. We are still looking for an interested party who may be willing to redevelop the corner of Clements Bridge and Gloucester Pike. We have had some interesting notions as to what could be developed on the corner, but nothing solid yet. We will keep you posted. We know traveling through town on Gloucester

Pike has been a challenge and after Clements Bridge Road reconstruction we have had about as much we would like. Once PSE&G has completed the gas services in Barrington and Bellmawr, Gloucester Pike will be repaved. I know better roads means more traffic, but more traffic means more exposure to the businesses in town, which is great for Barrington. Mayor and Council, our Borough Staff, Public Works, Police Department, Fire Department, Ambulance and EMT’s all wish our residents a safe and happy summer. Enjoy your vacations and we will see you in the Fall.

Barrington Welcomes Wild Wing Café as Latest Component to White Horse Pike Redevelopment Site WILD WING CAFÉ GRAND OPENING

On Friday, June 9 at 4:30pm, Mayor Klaus, surrounded by council members, owners and management of Wild Wing Café, along with friends and family, cut the ribbon officially opening Wild Wing Café on the White Horse Pike in Barrington. All week long Wild Wing Café hosted guests from the community for their “Guinea Pig” parties where patrons sampled the food for free and kitchen and wait staff got a chance to hone their skills. Wild Wing Café has already been a huge success as there is usually a wait to be seated. The opening of this restaurant finally completes the Barrington economic redevelopment project started 12 years ago and spearheaded by Council President Kirk Popiolek (pictured behind Mayor Klaus). Also pictured are Councilwoman Harris, Councilman Beach and Councilwoman Fawley. Everyone in Barrington extends a warm welcome to Wild Wing Café and wishes them great success!

Wild Wing Cafe, located next to the new Wawa on the White Horse Pike aims to be the destination for “hot wings, cold beer and good times,” according to managing partners Craig and Janette Colby and operating partner John DeLucia. “Our goal is to be a catalyst of the local scene by supporting breweries to the tune of live music, as well as providing delicious, fresh food,” said DeLucia. “We’re also committed to the Barrington community, and plan to be integrally involved by sponsoring youth-centered and sports organizations.”  The restaurant will employ 125 people and feature more than 40 TVs, a 34-seat bar, an

enclosed patio, as well as eight garage doors to provide an open-air feel in the bar area. The extensive menu will offer Wild Wing Cafe’s traditional pub fare as well as fan favorites like chicken wings, hand-breaded nuggets, 100% Angus burgers and fresh salads, as well as 33 made-from-scratch sauces to suit all palates. To enhance the dining experience, there will be live music on Friday and Saturday nights, welcoming various rock genres, and the bar will boast more than 30

taps including many local brews from New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, and New York. “The Barrington team connects on all cylinders with Wild Wing Cafe’s mission,” said Tom Lewison, Chief Executive Officer of Wild Wing Cafe. “We’re excited to open our first location in New Jersey and can’t wait for the Barrington community to be able to enjoy everything Wild Wing has to offer.”

Barrington Girls’ Softball League

The Barrington Girls Softball League (BGSL) had another great season in 2017. It kicked off with Opening Day on April 8th which included a parade of all the teams in the league, the national anthem sung by Skyleena Thatch, a 6th grader from Barrington who performed on America’s Got Talent, and games between Barrington teams and a newly combined Barrington and Haddon Heights team named Haddington. We are proud that our girls had winning seasons at each age level in both the GSA and UGSL leagues.



Post season, on June 3rd the BGSL held its 2nd Annual Family Fun Day. This event had games for kids throughout the day, brought together players from across the decades to play in an alumni game, a corn hole tournament fund raiser, and a beer garden that included live music with Angus Road as the headliner. During Barrington’s Independence Day celebration most of the players rode in the parade representing the league with style. 2017 was also the 2nd year for Fall Ball. With increased participation this year, it’s ensured that fall softball will continue for many years in town. For those girls interested in playing softball in the spring the BGSL would love to have you participate. Registration will open at the end of December. Visit for more details.

Barrington Band Barrington has always had a rich history of being one of New Jersey’s smalltown gems, a place that draws folks together, who give their time and talents

for the benefit of others. And what draws more people together than music – those who love playing it, and those who love hearing it? The Barrington Band was formed over 100 years ago, and even today draws musicians young and old, experienced and beginner, together to entertain at civic events, nursing homes and other special concert events. Its music is as diverse as its membership, focusing on patriotic songs, marches, big-band numbers and Broadway show tunes. The band performs not only in Barrington, but also in surrounding towns and those as far away as Cape May and Wildwood. What makes the Barrington Band special is its inclusivity – it welcomes members of all ages and skill levels – the common thread is to make music fun – and entertaining – for the band as well as the audience! The Band rehearses weekly, and its concert season runs from late spring through the Christmas Season. Check us out at our website at www. and join us in 2017 as we gear up for another season of great music! July 3 Woodland School, Barrington (Barrington Fireworks) August 12 7 P.M.

Brownies and Girl Scouts When you think of the Girl Scouts organization, the first thing to come to mind is usually COOKIES! While a large part of our Troops’ focus throughout our season is our cookie sales, we have also made an effort in keeping with the Girl Scout Promise “to serve”. Brownie Troop 30014 and Girl Scout Troop 30189, ranging from the ages of 6-14 years of age, participated for the second year with The Unforgotten Haven, South Jersey, a non-profit charity in Blackwood NJ that assists the unfortunate and homeless. The girls along with some of their family members packed 300 bag lunches to be distributed to those in need. In December, both troops also participated in the first Cookies and Caroling! Christmas cookies donated by each of the girls were packaged and distributed

to seniors in the community during an afternoon of Christmas Carols and games. The troops hope to continue to be active with the senior community and look forward to this event becoming an annual tradition, bridging the young and old!

Mary’s Marchers Hold Relay For Life

Relay for Life is the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. The Relay is staffed and coordinated by volunteers in more than 5,200 communities and 27 countries. Volunteers give their time and effort because they believe it’s time to take action against cancer. Relay for Life of Camden County was held on Saturday, June 10, 2017 from noon until 12:00 am at Veteran’s Park, 1261 Chews Landing Road in Clementon (Gloucester Twp.), NJ. Everyone was invited to join in at this event which brings communities together to remember loved ones lost, honor survivors of all cancers, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society make a global impact on cancer. If you are a cancer survivor, a caregiver, have lost someone to cancer, or just want to see what it’s all about, please come check it out.

You can be as involved as you like. You can register to relay, encourage family and friends to create your own team, or just hang out and participate. Barrington is home to Mary’s Marchers Relay for Life team, formed in 2011 to support Mary Deeney Coyle in her fight against lung cancer. Mary lost her battle and was taken from us too soon. We continue to raise awareness and funds for the American Cancer Society in her memory and to make a difference in the lives of others facing this disease. To date, we have raised over $15,000 this year and over $50,000 since we began. By devoting our time and energy through raising awareness and money, we have become the voice of the American Cancer Society in our community. It’s a big job and its not one that we take for granted. We appreciate all the support we receive at our many fundraising events throughout the year. Like our Facebook page to keep up to date on all of our events and activities. We hope to see you at Relay for Life of Camden County on June 10th! For more information, contact Barb Hanson at or 856217-3924.

Mail Carriers Help To Restock A.B.L.E. Food Pantry

Once again, we are grateful to the residents of Barrington for their donations of nonperishable food items, and to the Mail Carriers who picked them up from doorsteps on May 13th. The food was needed to replenish the stocks that have been used since the beginning of the year to supplement the needs of our citizens who have a tough time making ends meet. Thanks to our Barrington US Postal Service employees, and Bob Meloni, who serves as our liason with the Mail Carriers, truck after truck pulled in at Borough Hall, where they were met by a cadre of dedicated volunteers who sorted the items for storage in the pantry.

Next Food Distribution Saturday, June 24th. If you are a Barrington resident in need of food, you can register to share in the items donated to A.B.L.E. by your neighbors. Call Eileen in the Mayor’s Office (856-5478585) and reserve a time to come pick up your food at Borough Hall on the morning of June 24th. A photo ID or utility bill will be required.



Barrington has partnered with Kiwanis of the Haddons through Council President Popiolek, who is a long-time member, to re-build the Wish Upon a Star Playground. We will be building an inclusive playground that can be used by all kids including those with disabilities. Kiwanis is an organization dedicated to serving the needs of children so they were happy to partner with us on this project. We hope to fund most of this project with grants and already secured a $25,000 Camden County Open Space grant and will be applying for more. We will also be fundraising so please watch for more information as the project moves forward.

SUMMER, 2017

Pictured at right is Andrew behind the shelters he and his group built. Also pictured are all those who worked with Andrew standing behind all the shelters that were built.

Eagle Scout Candidate Leads Effort To Build T-N-R Shelters Andrew Simmons, a Haddon Heights resident and nephew of Dawn Mutchler, a longtime volunteer for the T-N-R program, is a candidate to become an Eagle Scout and for his project, chose to build shelters for the T-N-R program. On Saturday, June 3, Andrew, his friends and family, along with members of his troop, spent the day building the shelters. In all they built 20 shelters that will be used to house feral cats in colonies in Barrington, Haddon Heights and Mount Ephraim. Andrew would like to thank the sponsors who donated materials: UFP Berlin, LLC, Paul’s Custom Awards, Enders Building & Development and Triple “R” Truck Parts. Barrington thanks Andrew for his dedication and volunteerism along with all who helped him.

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.
