A Taste of Livingston’s Founders
It all really began with a 200-year-old Governor. Or, at least, someone dressed as Aaron Ogden, New Jersey’s Governor in 1813. After a fife and drum entry, a welcome by Livingston’s 2013 Mayor Rudy Fernandez and a lovely rendition of the National Anthem performed by the Livingston High School Select Chorus, Livingston Township’s Founders’ Day Celebration on February 5th got started more
On Tuesday, January 1, 2013, Livingston Township held its annual reorganization meeting for the swearing in of the new mayor and council members. This year, however, there was added excitement as the township kicked off its 200th anniversary. Attendees to the meeting were greeted by individuals wearing 1800′s-era clothing, and the walls of the Community Center where the meeting was held were covered with posters full of photos, newspaper clippings and the memories of residents and their descendents. Representing Saint Barnabas Medical Center, the Bicentennial’s Black Diamond sponsor, Vice President of External Affairs Lou LaSalle was on hand to help blow out the candles on the Bicentennial cake. He reiterated that Saint Barnabas Medical Center is delighted to join forces with Livingston township to celebrate the Bicentennial. Each month throughout the year features a different theme, and there will be events and activities each month along those lines. Photo: Lighting the candles on the Bicentennial cake!
