- CHEERS-The Tree & Beautification Committee planted 12 spruce (Christmas) trees between the War Memorial and Wing Hing ChineseRestaurant on Saturday, October 20. The trees are a great addition to our Broadway business corridor and will be used for decorating during various yearly holidays, starting with the Christmas event on December 1.
An additional 20 more trees were planted in various locations throughout the city to complement the existing tree canopy. In addition, this month, a small number of members planted 24 mums at the Iron Lady at Proprietor's Park. Big thumbs up to the community volunteers who took time out of their busy schedules to further beautify our City.
- JEERS- To the stores, food distributors and wholesalers who continue to sell Topps frozen hamburgers, recalled more than a month ago because the meat is contaminated with fatal E. coli bacteria strains. New Jersey state inspectors still were finding some of the Topps burgers at stores, including one in Gloucester City. Investigators from the State Division of Consumer Affairs were back in Gloucester City last week and cited another local store for selling toys that were recalled. Both Gloucester City stores were the only two in South Jersey to violate the recall notice. All of the other stores were in North Jersey.
