Hello Matawan! Since we couldn't meet up for our Annual Egg Hunt, Washington Fire will be bringing the Easter Bunny through your neighborhoods. He will be escorted by our Police and he'll be waving from Washington Fire's truck and wishing you all well. The Bunny Run will be Saturday 4/11 between 9:30-11:30AM. So, if the kids want a glimpse of the Easter Bunny, they can wait for him on their lawns. The firetruck will be doing a slow roll through Matawan!!!

Last night 4/3/2020, the Department of Recreation presented our 2019 Turkey Trot sponsors with an appreciation plaque for their continued support of our annual event. With the net proceeds, we continue to plow them back into the community through our "beautification projects". We have in the past worked at Terhune Park, purchased a gazebo, benches, handicap table, banners for Main Street and most recently, this past summer we did a beautification project at the lake house at Lake Lefferts. Thank you again to all our sponsors namely: T&M Associates, Studio B Dance Company, the Ross Maghan Insurance Agency, the Menna Law Firm, Dr. Mauro & Associates PC, Calta Tax, Eli's Hot Bagels, Kriegstein Financial Services, Solterrra Recycling, A Salute, Michael Irene, Jr., Esq., Najarian Associates, Maloney's Pub and Grill, and Serpico Pyrotechnics, LLC.

It was a magical night at Terhune Park back in December 2019 when Matawan came together to light the tree. We had Girls Scouts singing, ice sculptures being carved before your eyes, Mickie and Minnie dancing, and an artist doing caricatures. There was hot chocolate, candy canes, popcorn and food trucks. Huge thanks to Matawan's PBA who sponsored Cheezen and our own Main Street sensation Papa Ganache. Finally, Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus arrived and led our special countdown and then posed with all the kids! So awesome!!!
Special thanks to our volunteers who help run these special events, many thanks to Matawan's PD, Fire Department and our very helpful DPW.
