Thoughts & Prayers

Posted on August 19, 2021

Our thoughts and prayers go out to one of our residents, Scott Tutela, who was recently seriously injured in a house fire in our Borough. We wish you all the best in your speedy recovery. Words cannot express the continued gratitude I have for our first responders on the scene for their bravery, dedication, and service to our community. I wish all the injured firefighters a speedy recovery as well.
