The women of CHP recently got together for a beautiful luncheon to celebrate former board member Dee Klein, who has been a staple in Clayton for over 50 years.

Dee will be moving in a few weeks and we wish her and her family the best of luck with this new adventure!

WaterFest 2019, which was held June 2nd at Scotland Run Park, was a success! We worked on recovering the original map of the cabins at the lake (which were residences until the 1970's) and had several visitors to our booth who found their old homesteads listed. We also gained the interest of several children who stopped to learn about their hometown's history.

CHP board members were proud to met for a second Gloucester County Historic Society Round Table Meeting on April 3rd. This event was hosted by the Township of Franklin Historical Advisory Committee.

The purpose of the bi-annual meetings are to share events, ideas and help to support one another's efforts to educate and preserve South Jersey history. The next meeting will be in September of 2019.

Clayton's Borough Hall Tree was decorated by the Clayton Historic Preservation, Inc. on Monday, November 26, 2018. The tree looks beautiful with Clevenger glass wreath ornaments, big paper snowflakes and painted pine cones. Clayton Borough Administrator Sue Miller admires along with CHP member June Salvatore and CHP Chairman Joe Salvatore.
