2017 Events and Activities

April 1, 2017



Saturday, April 1, 2017, Mayor Gattinelli attended the Grand Opening of our Community Garden, located in Washington Lake Park.  Although the clouds were hiding the sun and the wind was picking up, the opening went off without a hitch.  This event was especially exciting because it is something that will continue to bring our community together.  Residents are able to apply for a plot in the garden.  At this time, all eighteen plots are leased, but we would like for residents to keep applying so that they may be put on a waiting list for the future.

We look forward to seeing all of the wonderful crops and flowers that will continue to grow in our park.  We would like to extend a sincere thank you to our Environmental Commission and Open Space Advisory Committee for all of their efforts involved in this event.

Mayor Gattinelli, Councilwoman Angela Donato, and Chamber of Commerce President Maureen Pasternak were happy to attend the Grand Opening for Champion Martial Arts, located on 309 Fries Mill Road in Sewell. They had the privilege of meeting the co-owner and head instructor, Sensei Preston Conyers. We are always happy and willing to welcome new businesses to our town. Our community is fortunate enough to have this right here in Washington Township. We would like to wish Champion Martial Arts a lot of success now and in the future.

Mayor Gattinelli, Business Administrator, Jason Gonter, and Chief Patrick Gurcsik were fortunate enough to attend Ms. Ahn's 5th grade classroom, Room 112, of the Thomas Jefferson Elementary School in Washington Township. To kick off Dr. Seuss's birthday and Read Across America, the Mayor sat with the class and read the book, "Clark the Shark".

The students of the classroom also took advantage of the opportunity to ask Mayor Gattinelli many different questions about being the Mayor. Not only did the kids have a great time, but we thoroughly enjoyed our time with the students and teachers to encourage and support Read Across America.

From Mayor Gattinelli;  "I was pleased to attend the official ground breaking ceremony for the new Kadar Orthodontics Facility on Egg Harbor Road on February 8. Joining Dr. Tom Kadar and his family were Bob Timmons of the Washington Township Chamber of Commerce, Dr. Kadar’s staff and members of the media. Dr. Kadar is moving his offices from his former location on Hurfville-Cross Keys Road to this new facility which will be a “Green Friendly” building once constructed. Dr. Kadar also volunteers his time and efforts to various Township organizations. We wish Dr. Kadar and his staff good luck and much success at his new location. We also appreciate Dr. Kadar keeping his medical practice in Washington Township as business retention remains a top priority of my administration."
