During these unprecedented and trying times I think it’s important to take a moment to say thank you. Thank you to the President and Vice President for helping to get us the equipment that we need and for their efforts to help. To the state , the Governor, and the County for setting up testing systems and for their efforts to help. The heros in scrubs, doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers who have been on the front lines taking on a big responsibility every day.  Our first responders who are out every day still doing their part to keep everyone safe.  All of our essential workers for doing their part to keep everything going as best we can. The health department and our town nurse for everything they have been doing.  Our very own DPW and employees for keeping the Borough functioning. The teachers, parents, and students for doing their best to adapt to a new learning situation. Thank you to everyone who has volunteered in some capacity to help their fellow citizens. Thank you to our residents for doing the right thing and staying home. I am hopeful that we are on our way to a return to normalcy.
