Hello Chatham Borough!
Summer of 2015 Edition   

Oooh!  Ahhh!  It's almost time for fireworks!  When is the Fourth of July parade?  When are the fireworks?  When is the mulch area open?  How much does it cost to swim at the pool?  What are the summer hours for the Borough offices?

Introducing the Chatham Borough Newsletter!  Each quarter, our newsletter will arrive via email to remind you of important upcoming events, key dates, and general information about what's happening in the Borough.  This information and more can also be found on the Chatham Borough website.  

Here are some of the highlights happening this summer and important general information.  We've made it a simple bulleted list so it's easy to print and hang on the fridge!
