Mayor Paul Medany’s Monthly Message - November 2019
Fall into this beautiful foliage season. Fall Foliage is fully in bloom. As the leaves are changing colors they are dropping off their branches for winter season. We have started our leaf collection. We will be picking up leaves in zoned areas. Please visit our website at www.deptford-nj.org for our scheduled times to pick up leaves in your zoned area.
Budget preparation has started for our upcoming year. Our bond rating remains at AA. Financially we are stabilized and in good standing.
Winter months are not far behind. Emergency preparedness is ongoing and implementation will be in effect should we incur any situation.
November is a busy month, with several holidays. On November 11th, we celebrate and honor our Veterans. These men and women are our true heroes, deserving of our respect and thanks for protecting our country and for our freedom. Honor our Veterans, not just on November 11th, but on any day of the year. Most of all, let our Veterans know how much they mean to you, remember to take time to “Thank a Veteran”.
Thanksgiving Day arrives late this year on the 28th, the day that begins the unofficial start of the holiday season. Thanksgiving is a day of thanks and we in Deptford Township have so many things to be thankful for. Deptford is the center of shopping, dining and entertainment in this region. It is an exciting time in our community!
Santa’s arrival will be on Saturday, Nov. 16, 2019 starting at 10:00am with a parade. Come kick off our Holiday Season.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your Family.
