Mayor's Monthly Message - May 2022

With the warm weather in the air, we know summer is on the way. Not only are flowers blooming, so is Deptford Township. Our local economy is doing great.  Inspira Medical Center has started construction on a new facility at the previous Dicks Sporting Goods location. Jo-Ann Fabrics is renovating the “Babies R Us” location. A new tenant will soon locate to the former Don Pablo’s Restaurant. Bone Saw Brewery will be moving into the Mall with a new location.

This continues our success story in working with businesses, both small and national to provide good paying jobs, great ratables and a terrific variety. From Medical to entertainment, restaurants and specialty stores, Deptford has it all. With all this we are able to keep local taxes stable and most importantly provide public safety. Working together with the Deptford MUA, the School District, Fire Commissioners and Gloucester County Board of Commissioner’s Director we are keeping our community safe, affordable and just a fantastic place to live, work and raise a family.

Just a few upcoming events: 

  • Fasola Park ~ New Pickle Ball Courts, new workout equipment on lower level

  • May 21st our Market Fair will open at the Community Center from 8:00 a.m. till 12:00 p.m.

  • Memorial Day Celebrations in Jericho on 5/30 at 11:00am

  • Buddy Powell Memorial Day Celebrations at 12:00pm on 5/29

  • Memorial Day Ceremony and BBQ from 1:00pm till 3:00pm at Oak Valley Veteran’s Park on 5/29

Memorial Day, once known as Decoration Day is observed on the last Monday of May.  Remember this Memorial Day to honor the men and women who lost their lives while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

The act of decorating the graves of fallen soldiers with flowers dates back thousands of years. The ancient Greeks used to place flowers on the graves of warriors, believing that if the flowers blossomed, that the warrior’s soul was sending a message that it had found happiness in the afterlife. The concept was embraced in the U.S. after the Civil War – with more than 600,000 soldiers on both sides of the conflict dying in the war, burial and memorialization took on a heightened cultural significance, including the creation of national cemeteries specifically for soldiers.
