I plan on being here for the 350th Anniversary.
This is a message for all of you who are part of Bridgeton history.
If you have any old photos or memories or stories your dad and granddad passed down to you, or you found in the attic, and you think people would enjoy reading about them, please contact us.
This is the 325th anniversary of the founding of Bridgeton, and we want to do it up right with a keepsake edition that captures everything about the city and surrounding area.
That includes you, Shep.
It includes sports, rum-runners, the library, the courthouse, the Italian-American Civic Club, the Fifth Ward Club, Ferracute Co., Nail Company, Woodruff Indian Artifact collection, fire house, police department, oldest businesses, Gas Light Co., Elks Lodge, Cohansey River, Chief Cohanzick, country club, Owens-Illinois, schools.
Anything you want to personalize for everyone to read.
We had the meeting Wednesday with the powers that be.
They love the idea.
We have Bob Crowe’s thousand photos.
We’re trying to make the history of Bridgeton come alive through your ancestors.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jot down the memories that should be shared.
Write us at The News, 100 E. Commerce St., Bridgeton, NJ 08302.
We could do 325 pages with enough help and enough support.
And all of your names can be on those pages.
We’re not going to write it.
You’re going to write it.
Please make it happen because we won’t be here for the 350th.
