Parade Grand Marshall
Fire Official Tim Daly

After many, many years of service to the Borough of Haddon Heights Thomas M Daly (Tim) is retiring.  He started his service in 1956-1957 at age 14 as a Civil Defense radio operator in the basement of the old Borough Hall under the direction of Carl Miller.  

Tim joined the Haddon Heights Volunteer Fire Department in 1960. He worked his way up to Cheif of the Department and even with taking time off to raise his family, now has a total of 40 years of service. In 1965 Tim was also employed by the Borough of Haddon Heights as a police officer until his retirement in 1990, after serving for 25 years, elevated to the rank of sergeant. In 2001 Tim was hired as the fire inspector and continues to hold that position presently, he also has held the rank of Fire Marshall for the last 15 years. 

Tim has been an asset to this town for his many years of service, he has many friends who will miss him and wish him nothing but the best in his retirement. Join with us at the independence parade in honoring him and his contribution to our town.

Adult Coloring Club
3rd Thursday of Each Month

The library has a new program launching: The Adult Coloring Club. Adult coloring books have taken the world by storm and have proven to relieve stress. Join us on the third Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm. We will be creating beautiful masterpieces and bonding with our neighbors. Our next coloring club will be held on Thursday, July 21st.

Join us as we "Walk to the Olympics"

Four years ago, to encourage fitness and have a little Olympic Fun, we challenged  our residents to “walk” from Philadelphia to London, the site of the 2012 Summer Olympics. Yes, we pretended we could walk across the ocean and about 35 residents made the trip by the Opening Ceremony. This year, the XXXI Olympics will be held in Rio Di Janeiro, Brazil and we have until late August to get there. It’s easier now - there’s a selection of fitness devices or phone apps to help track our progress. So are you “game”? If you take the direct water/flying route you need only to log 4,786 miles. 

Can you make the trek before the closing ceremonies on August 21st? We are working on the Honor System, you can log your miles using your devise of choice! Residents are logging their miles starting May 1st and ending August 21st. Let us know how far you made it by August 30th. (Email Kathy Lange at klange@haddonhts.com) Kathy will have Gold, Silver, and Bronze “medals” to award at the September 6th Council Meeting. 

Even if you don’t make it all the way, it will be fun to see how far you can get - there’s plenty of interesting cities along the way. Be inspired by the Olympic Creed… The important thing in the Olympic Games is to not win but to take part just as the important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well. Good Luck!
