Bergenfield Elks Lodge Hosts Mock Council Event for Bergenfield Middle and High Schoolers

Bergenfield Elks Lodge Hosts Mock Council Event for Bergenfield Middle and High Schoolers

Students Involved in Bergenfield Antler’s Lodge #35 Spend Day Running Mock Municipal Government

 

The Bergenfield Elks Lodge #1477 recently collaborated with the Borough of Bergenfield to celebrate Elks National Youth Week with their youth program, Bergenfield Antler’s Lodge #35, taking part in a mock council session that taught the 6-11th grade students about the importance of local government.

“The Bergenfield Antlers Lodge #35 make a difference in our community one day at a time.  Embracing youth and community is my passion and was my drive to form the Bergenfield Antlers,” said Tom Boyce, Bergenfield Antlers Youth Activities Coordinator. 

Mayor Arvin Amatorio and Councilman Marc Pascual kicked off the event, held at Borough Hall, by reading a proclamation on behalf of the government body in honor of Elks National Youth Week. The Mayor commended them for their commitment and dedication, and Councilman Pascual celebrated them as the future leaders of Bergenfield. 

The students were then invited to sit on the dais, and hold a mock session, as the Bergenfield governing body. After holding a brief election for the position of mayor, they addressed topics such as: hiring summer counselors for the Recreation program, payment of bills, and considering an ordinance prohibiting the use of lawn mowers before 8:00 a.m.

“I always look forward to coordinating this event with the Elks because it brings me joy to teach Bergenfield students about our roles in municipal government,” said Bergenfield Borough Clerk Marie Quiñones-Wilson. “The students are always eager to learn and excited to sit on the dais as great leaders.”

“The Antlers” are a youth-focused subdivision of the historic Elks Lodges that promotes support of youth, veterans, and communities. Antlers obtain service hours for volunteering, learn life skills, participate in activities, and can apply for different scholarships offered by the Elks. 

The following Bergenfield Antlers participated in the mock court program this year: Jude Boyce, Maddison Boyce, Christopher Budiman, Kayla O’Neil (elected mayor), Marco Garibaldi, Angelo Tamayo, Ashley Budiman, Sophie Almonte, and Nikki Farias.

Bergenfield Girl Scout Troop Cleans Up Local Park

Bergenfield Girl Scout Troop Cleans Up Local Park

Troop 98459 Earns Park Clean Up Badge at Cooper’s Pond Park 

If you noticed Cooper’s Pond Park looked cleaner lately, that's because Girl Scout Troop 98459 spent the afternoon on May 3rd earning their Park Clean Up badge by picking up trash and debris, with the goal of learning the importance of environmental responsibility.

“We are so grateful to Troop 98459 for coming out to set an example for their community by demonstrating that we can all have big impacts on our surroundings,” said Jaime Luppino from the Bergenfield Dept. of Public Works. “Cooper’s Pond looks great and their new Girl Scout patch is well earned.”

The Girl Scouts picked up trash that had been discarded around the park, and have been learning about garbage and pollution and the negative effects they have on the environment. They were working towards earning a new badge, which are given to scouts as they learn new life skills and make positive contributions to their community.

“The Scouts found a way that they could assist with a problem in their own backyard,” said Mayor Arvin Amatorio. “Seeing litter scattered around a park makes it more likely others will also litter. What the Scouts did has a farther reaching impact than just beautifying one of our green spaces, it reminds us all to take care of our environment and treat it more respectfully.”

Bike Tour Through Bergenfield to Celebrate Bicycle Safety Month

BERGENFIELD, NJ – On Sunday, May 22, Bergenfield residents are invited to join the Bergenfield Police Department on a bike tour of their borough in order to commemorate May as Bicycle Safety Month.

“Bergenfield has so many beautiful places to bike ride and with the summer weather approaching we want to encourage our residents to get out and enjoy their borough by biking in a safe and responsible manner,” said Police Chief Mustafa Rabboh. “This event is the perfect opportunity to teach your family bicycle safety tips such as how to make sure a helmet fits correctly or how to use hand signals on busier roads. Plus it’s a great excuse to spend time with friends and family outside in our community!”

The rain-or-shine ride around Bergenfield will begin and end at the Bergenfield Police Headquarters on Washington Avenue with riders of all ages encouraged to participate. All riders must complete the hold harmless form and bring it with them on the date of the event. The first 50 riders 16 years of age and younger who submit their hold harmless forms, starting at 9 am, will receive a free helmet. All riders who are 16 or younger will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win one of several bicycles at the end of the ride.

To access the hold harmless agreement, please visit: bergenfieldpd.org/downloads/category/5-registration-forms.
