ust beyond the heart of downtown Summit, in an area of lovely Victorian homes, there’s an elegant estate home known as The DeBary Inn. Summit’s only executive boutique inn, the DeBary has stood in the same area for more than 130 years. The mansion’s history goes back to 1840, when French Baron Frederick DeBary came to this country to be the American agent for Mumm’s Champagne. The Baron soon became the largest wine importer in America, made a fortune, and then turned the business over to his son Adolphe. Adolphe married, began a family in New York, and then decided to move to the country. In 1880, he built the estate, described by the local paper as “one of the largest showplaces in Summit…known for its size, beauty and elaborateness.” Originally on about 3.5 acres, the estate included a bowling alley, gardens, and a stable for horses and carriages. There was even indoor plumbing! However, the family only lived here until 1906, and in 1916 the estate was sold to a development company who built a road through it (DeBary Place) and subdivided the grounds into building lots. The original house was moved in the 1920’s about 200 feet to where it stands today, at 265 Springfield Avenue, merely one block from the heart of Summit’s downtown and a few short blocks from the NJ Transit train station. (The express train can get you into NYC in 40 minutes!) In 1923, the home began offering lodging as “The Hobart Hotel” and was renamed “The DeBary” in 1941 to

honor the original family. The name was changed again in 1959 to “The DeBary Guest House” and finally to The DeBary Inn in 2006. For many years, the DeBary offered dining to the general public, but the last restaurant closed in 1977. Completely gutted and renovated into a beautiful facility, The DeBary Inn now boasts 16 lovely and spacious guest rooms, all beautifully decorated with en suite bathrooms, hair dryers and flat screen TVs. Some rooms even have fireplaces! A full continental breakfast is served every day, coffee and tea are always available, and a refreshment center proffers snacks and beverages 24-hours a day. Free highspeed wireless is available throughout the inn, along with fax and copy services. Laundry and concierge services are also available if needed. The first floor boasts a charming living room and dining room, again with fireplaces to warm you on a chilly evening. Give The DeBary Inn a call at 908-277-0005 to reserve your room the next time you’d like a romantic weekend getaway, if you’re in the area on business, or if you have out-of-town guests who need a place to stay. Visit the inn at www.TheDeBaryInn.com.

INSPIRE Magazine at LCJSMS

Students at Lawton C. Johnson Summit Middle School (LCJSMS) meet monthly after school to discuss and share their creative works for INSPIRE Magazine, an annual literary and art publication funded by the Summit Educational Foundation (SEF). The magazine’s all digital format continues to serve as a representation of the LCJSMS community’s art and writing, as well as provide a creative extra-curricular opportunity for those students in need of an outlet for self-expression. Ms. Ashley Gallagher is the LCJSMS teacher advisor for INSPIRE Magazine and grant co-author. She explains, “It has been such an exciting experience establishing the INSPIRE Magazine as an outlet for all of the wonderfully creative work done by students and faculty here at LCJSMS. INSPIRE Magazine not only represents students’ classroom work, but also personal projects that students and faculty members complete on their own time. With the addition of ‘going digital’ this year, INSPIRE Magazine is now able to accept interactive components such as videos and music. Plus, INSPIRE Magazine is free for all to view and enjoy on our middle school webpage.” Seventh grader Stefanie Castillo adds, “I like INSPIRE because you can put anything out there like drawings, poems, and videos. You just get to show what you have been working on and then share it with the Summit community.” To view the LCJSMS INSPIRE Magazine, click on http://www.summit.k12.nj.us/~agallagher/FOV2-0011BBEA/.

Working on INSPIRE Magazine are (clockwise from top center) Grace Morrissey, Julia Baldacchino, Alyssa Gao, and Stefanie Castillo

Oak Knoll Upper School Kicks Off Summer with Annual Sacred Heart Camp More than 30 Upper School students and five faculty members participated in the seventh annual Sacred Heart Summer Fun camp at Sacred Heart School in Jersey City during the summer. This year, 32 Oak Knoll students served as planners, day coordinators, and counselors for the camp, themed “Summer Fun.” The weeklong camp featured activities ranging from watercolor painting and water balloon fights to ice cream making and dance lessons. “The interaction between Oak Knoll and Sacred Heart students is often so special,” said faculty member Ms. Lynch. “Not only do the older, Oak Knoll students help the Sacred Heart kids, but the opposite happens. The Sacred Heart kids teach our students many important lessons, too.”

Several Exercise Classes Offered at SAGE maintain their independence,” stated Julie Reich, Director of Special Programs at SAGE Eldercare.

Exercise is important, especially when we age, as it helps with balance, flexibility and general health. The chance of falling is often reduced for those older adults who exercise regularly and the effort does not need to be strenuous. “Exercise is very important, regardless of age and especially in seniors. It allows older adults to be healthy in the long run, improves strength and stability, which helps to prevent falls, and gives them confidence and self-esteem to BACK-TO-SCHOOL 2013

Chatham Community Band Seeks New Members The Chatham Community Band (CCB), under the direction of Mr. Brian Conti, is looking for new members. The band is an allvolunteer, adult instrumental music group with members coming from all walks of life, from college age through retirees. Most are not professional musicians, but over the years many had performed in high school or college and wanted an opportunity to continue playing in a communitybased volunteer group. In addition to formal Holiday and Spring Concerts, the band performs at community events such as Chatham’s Fishawack Day, 4th of July Parade, and at senior citizen residences and community centers. The concert band is open to

instrumental musicians and currently is in need of percussionists and other brass and woodwind players. Music performed by the band includes traditional marches, Broadway show selections, light classics and Americana. For more information about the CCB, visit our web site, www. chathamcommunityband.org, or email Brian Conti, briancontib@aol.com. The band is organized under the Adult Education Program of the Chatham School District, with rehearsals and scheduled concerts performed at the Chatham High School, 255 Lafayette Road, in Chatham.

Continuo Arts Singers to Perform in Rome Continuo Arts Choral Ensembles and guests will travel to Europe in February, 2014 to perform in some of the great venues of Europe, among them the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City. The Chapel is famous for its art and architecture and is home to one of the oldest religious choirs in the world. Performing in the Sistine Chapel could be described as singing in the Holy Grail of performance venues, and the NJ-based Continuo Arts Foundation was specifically invited to perform there. (Continuo Arts founder and conductor Candace Wicke was the first woman conductor to ever appear at the Fondazione Pro Musica e Arte Sacra’s annual international festival in Rome.) “To say we are excited, thrilled and humbled by this unbelievable invitation is a huge understatement,” said Wicke. “We would like to include as many Continuo Arts ensembles and community members who want to be involved since this will likely not happen again!” This winter, members of the Continuo Arts Intergenerational Choral Ensembles, as well as many non-singing music and art aficionados, will travel to Ireland with stops in

Limerick, Dublin, Waterford, and Wicklow. Then it is on to Italy with performances in Assisi, St. Peter’s Basilica and finally in the Sistine Chapel. Continuo Arts is currently auditioning for the 2013-14 season and accepting new singers ages 7 to 70+ in one of their six ensembles: Children’s Chorus, Intermediate and Advanced Girls, Boys Ensemble, Adult Civic Chorale and Seniors Sing. There will be free classes for each ensemble on opening day, Tuesday, September 3rd at Historic Twin Maples in Summit. Each ensemble will have performances in local community concerts, make community service appearances, as well as have the opportunity to travel and perform in Ireland, Italy and the Sistine Chapel. In addition to an invitation for new singers to join, Continuo Arts extends a welcome to non-singing, art-loving residents in the area to join them on what is truly a rare and extraordinary opportunity of a lifetime. Travel and ensemble information can be found at www.continuoarts.com. To schedule an audition, call 908-264-5324.

Summit Public Art to Honor “Game Changers in Art” The Mayor’s Partnership for Summit Arts, known as Summit Public Art (SPA), is hosting its 10th Anniversary Celebration on Friday evening, September 27. Honorees are former Summit Mayor and founding SPA member Janet Whitman and Tom Moran, currently Curator/Director of Artistic Development at Grounds for Sculpture and a former member of the NJ State Council on the Arts. The event will take place at historic Twin Maples, 214 Springfield Avenue in Summit. It will run from 6:30-10:30 PM and will feature cocktails, light supper, entertainment, and beautiful artwork by renowned artists which will be for sale. Some of the artists will be present as well. The public is invited to join the celebration. Please RSVP to summitpublicart@gmail.com.
