Mayor's Statement on Passing of former Mayor Criscitelli

Posted on October 5, 2018 at 9:40 AM by Ellen Brogno

The Borough of Hawthorne was saddened to learn of the death of former Mayor Fred Criscitelli. Fred had a long and storied career as Mayor, Councilman and School Board member. He was responsible for the Louis Bay 2nd Library addition and the building of the Hawthorne Ambulance Corps building. He will be missed, and we wish his family peace at this time. The Borough flags are at half-staff in his honor.

Hawthorne Day

Posted on September 18, 2018 at 1:46 PM by Ellen Brogno

It's just a few days until the 10th Annual Hawthorne Day! Come and join your friends and neighbors at the Pool and Boro Bandshell Complex for a day of food, music and fun, ending with a great fireworks show this Saturday, September 22.  The event runs from noon until the fireworks at dark. Come and say hello to me and the governing body; check out the vendors, go on the rides, pet a sheep, and eat some great food. Can't wait to greet you personally.

Next Tuesday we mark the day that changed the lives of so many Americans. Three dastardly attacks: the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. I was proud to be part of the group that privately raised funds to build Hawthorne's 9-11 Memorial on Goffle Road. At 6:30 Tuesday night we will gather to remember the victims and the courage of the first responders. It always proves to be an unforgettable experience. Please join us in remembering.
