  MANCHESTER – A lot of local residents celebrated Manchester Day recently, and the people who put the event together were celebrated by the mayor and council.

  During the Township Council meeting, Recreation Department Director Tracey Lynch, Administration Assistant Caitlyn Sloan, and Office Manager Cassandra Colgate were summoned up before the dais to receive some certificates of appreciation for all their hard work in coordinating Manchester Day held earlier this summer.

  The well attended event was held at Harry Wright Lake and was packed with visitors, vendors, entertainers, food stands and various organizations on a hot Saturday afternoon.

  “It has waned over the years and obviously everything has been going on with the pandemic, we didn’t have it for the last two years,” Mayor Robert Hudak said.

  “It was a great experience having it back again and it was a roaring success so I wanted to publicly thank all of you for all of your hard work in putting it together. It will be even better next year,” the mayor added.

  In other news, Councilman James Vaccaro brought up the new COVID-19 variant BA.4/5 noting a rise in cases around the country and reminded residents to do what they could to protect themselves and their neighbors.

  Vaccaro asked the council to prepare and pass a resolution opposing Senate Bill S2103 and companion Assembly Bill A1294 “thus supporting other municipalities and Mayor Hudak in his opposition to legislation that would involve the merging of commercial areas and retail centers into mixed use developments containing both residential and non-residential components.”
