The Borough of Hopewell began its year-long 125th Anniversary, commemorating the Borough’s heritage and celebrating the Hopewell of today, on New Year’s Day at the “Anniversary Kick-off Party.” The event also featured the swearing-in of the Borough’s council members and mayor, Paul Anzano.

“I look forward to an exciting year in the Borough as we celebrate our 125th year,” said Mayor Paul Anzano. “The many special events such as today’s swearing in, the community party at St. Michaels and the incorporation anniversary wrapped around our annual events such as our Memorial Day Parade, Hopewell Harvest Fair, Food Truck Fridays and Cruise Nights, just to name a few, will present many opportunities for us to celebrate Hopewell Borough and to show case our community and our strength of spirit. I encourage everyone to visit our website and the link to 125th anniversary events so you can participate in the many wonderful events planned for this special year.”

Throughout the year, 125th anniversary flags and snow globes will be for sale at some of the events, as well as at Borough Hall starting tomorrow. Also, the anniversary committee has put together a 125th Anniversary Commemorative Booklet that includes the programs and events for the ongoing year’s anniversary celebration. These can be found at Borough Hall, the Hopewell Library and at Hopewell Pharmacy.
