How Should Twp. Celebrate 275th Birthday?

Patch wants resident input on milestone event.

Milestone birthdays include Sweet 16, Of-Age-18, Bar-Eligible-21, and just about every 30, 40, 50 and so on one can enjoy.

Not many–no one, actually–gets to say they've hit the big 2-7-5.

But in 2013, everyone in Washington Township will be able to say they're part of that milestone figure, as the municipality celebrates its 275th birthday.

On Sept. 12 at 6 p.m., Washington Township Mayor Ken Short will hold a meeting with the Historic Society and other groups in town to come up with ideas for how to best celebrate the year-long mark.

So, Long Valley Patch wants to know what you think should be done to celebrate the milestone?

Add your thoughts in the comments below, and be sure to vote in our poll.

As always, thanks for participating!

How about giving $275 to every taxpayer in the township, which they can use to celebrate the anniversary in whatever way they prefer?
