July 4, 2021, Activities in Mendham Township
On Monday, May 17th the Governor signed an Executive Order eliminating the outdoor mask mandate altogether in settings open to the public. Additionally, there are no longer limits on outdoor gatherings. This news comes in time for proms, graduations, and Summer 2021!
While many other states have lifted mask mandates as a result of the updated CDC guidance, Governor Murphy reaffirmed on the 17th that NJ will keep the indoor mask mandate in place in public settings for the time being. We will continue to update you as more information becomes available.
Last summer, our Recreation Department, Police Department, Fire Department, First Aid Squad, Department of Public Works, and Office of Emergency Management came together to make our July 4th activities a success, and this year will be no different!
This year, we will kick-off July 4th weekend with the Township’s 2nd annual public fireworks show at Mosle Field on Friday, July 2nd. Entertainment and Activities will take place from 6:30pm - 10:00pm. The gates will open at 6:30pm. The fireworks will be set-off from behind the baseball diamond and, to ensure safety, there will be a 350-400 ft fallout area. All attendees will be seated on the football field.
We will conclude our Township celebrations on Sunday, July 4th with a drive-by parade. The parade will start at 9:05am at Union Schoolhouse Road and end at the Mendham Township Elementary School. If you or an organization you are a part of would like to be part of the parade, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a good weekend,
Mayor, Mendham Township
