Mayor's Breakfast, State of the Borough, and Citizen of the Year!
Last Year's Winner Tom Baird
The Annual Mayor’s Breakfast, hosted by the Haddonfield Lions Club, will be held on Saturday, January 14, 2017 at the First Presbyterian Church, 20 Kings Highway East in Haddonfield. The event will begin at 9:00 AM. Tickets are $7 each and will be available at the door. Mayor Jeff Kasko will deliver the annual State of the Borough Address and also present the Citizen of the Year award, which recognizes an outstanding member of the Haddonfield community.
The winner is selected by the Citizen of the Year Committee, which is comprised of a group of Haddonfield community members. Nominations are now being accepted. The submission deadline is Wednesday, December 21.
Many outstanding community members have been nominated previously, and the committee is happy to consider both former and new nominees. However, nominations must be current and include the 2017 Nomination Form as a cover sheet, together with one or more statements by those making the recommendation. Note: All nominees must be Haddonfield residents.
At the Mayor's Breakfast, the Lions will be collecting eyeglasses, hearing aids and cell phones for recycling. Again this year, the Club will also collect non-perishable food items for the Food Pantry at the John D. Young Memorial Blind Center in Absecon.
