Our 34th Annual Poetry and Essay Contest

Thursday evening, March 5th marked the Awards Ceremony for our 34th annual Poetry and Essay contest. Because this year’s topic commemorated the 125th anniversary of the incorporation of Upper Saddle River as a Borough, our Mayor and Council graciously allowed us to award the children at their March Council meeting.

Winners read their winning entries, and Mayor Minichetti presented the awards. The topic concerned what might be placed in a time capsule to show future residents what is special about our town in 2020.

Club President, Nona Maher, surprised the students with the news that there would actually be a time capsule! It will contain the winning entries, photos of the places and things the students mentioned in their writing, a letter from the Woman’s Club, logos of the organizations in town and the historical and current maps of the town. The time capsule will be stored at the Hopper-Goetschius House Museum on the corner of Lake Street and East Saddle River Road for opening in the year 2145.

Congratulations to all the winners!
