To the editor: 

Whether you live, work or just come to enjoy our amenities in Nutley, you are sure to recognize the pride we have in our community. On Oct. 23, Nutley again displayed the spirit and unity that makes it an extraordinary place to dwell. Thousands of families, neighbors and friends of all ages gathered on Franklin Ave. for the 1st Annual “Franklin Fall Festival” and enjoyed great food, fabulous musical entertainment, countless children’s activities and, most of all, each other’s company. For generations, Nutley has built on the foundation of community involvement, and this event brought residents together to celebrate the season. The festival allowed us to showcase our various restaurants and entice other businesses to come into town and be part of the Nutley family. A special thank you to all the residents, business owners and township employees who helped make this evening a tremendous success. We would especially like to commend our fellow commissioners, the Parks & Public Property staff, our Police and Fire Department personnel, Volunteer Rescue Squad members, Health Department, Public Works Department and Revenue & Finance Department. Thank you again to all involved in planning this event and to the community for your continued partnership and commitment to our programs and special events.
