Oral histories available on DVD, in print, and on the web The Franklin Lakes Public Library and Franklin Avenue Middle School have joined together to create an oral history of Franklin Lakes and Bergen County. The ongoing, collaborative project’s goal is to preserve personal stories and accounts of the area’s local history. With the supervision of Library Director Gerry McMahon, Local History Librarian Samantha McCoy and Teen Librarian Kate Vasilik secured a grant to assist in the documentation of personal interviews. Funding was made possible in part by the Bergen County Department of Parks and the New Jersey Historical Commission, a division of Cultural Affairs in the Department of State, through grant funds administered by the Bergen County Division of Cultural and Historic Affairs. Face-to-face interviews with senior members of the community were conducted by students from Franklin Avenue Middle School, under the guidance and assistance of teachers Sharon Milano and Randy Freedman. It is the hope that this project will encourage an ongoing dialogue with the community and create history that is accessible to all. An interactive website with interview clips and transcripts is available at www., and DVDs and print and Braille transcripts of the interviews are also available at Franklin Lakes Public Library. It is the hope that this project will not only allow for historical preservation through personal memories, but that it will also provide a truly meaningful account of Franklin Lakes and Bergen County history to residents of the area, interested educators, and historians. Any member of the community interested in being a part of this project in the future can contact Franklin Lakes Library at (201) 891-2224. Bank signs (continued from page 5) The bank is also requesting an eight square foot sign as part of an ATM structure located on the side façade. That sign is not permitted by the zoning ordinance, but if the board determines the entire ATM structure is a sign, the size requested would be 41 square feet. Any other waivers, variances, or relief from the zoning ordinance and land use code that may be required in connection with the application have also been requested by the bank. Three members of the board who are shareholders of the bank declined to participate in the hearing of the application in order to avoid any appearance of a conflict of interest. Hudson City Savings Bank also has branches in Wyckoff, Oakland, Midland Park, Ramsey, and Mahwah, and serves customers throughout the surrounding metropolitan area with branches located in Fairfield, Westchester, Putnam, and Rockland counties; Long Island; and the New Jersey suburbs of Philadelphia. According to Ronald E. Hermance, the bank’s chairman, president, and chief executive officer, the bank averages $158 million in deposits per branch compared to the national average of $71 million for FDIC-insured institutions. He added that Hudson City’s growth rate in assets has exceeded 20 percent over the last 10 years. �������������� You don’t have to do any homework to know where to advertise your back to school specials...
