January 14, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES III • Page 7 Allendale New council member still pursuing sign by John Koster The sign for which Allendale’s new council member, Amy Wilczynski, garnered approval and funding before she joined the governing body should be standing some time soon at the intersection of Franklin Turnpike and East Club researches history The AWC is researching its club history. Current members are seeking former members of the Allendale Woman’s Club, Woman’s Evening Club, or Junior Woman’s Club of Allendale. The historians are looking for old yearbooks, scrapbooks, press books, photos, stories, or any pertinent information that may be available. Help is needed to document the history of the Woman’s Clubs of Allendale for future generations. All items will be returned if desired. Contact Liane Hamilton at (201) 760-1924. Allendale Avenue. Wilczynski, elected as an uncontested Republican candidate in the November election, took her seat on the Allendale Borough Council along with long-term incumbent Robert Schoepflin. Getting the sign back on track was one of her first priorities at the Jan. 8 meeting. Wilczynski, long active on the Allendale Recreation Committee and the Allendale Garden Club, is a graduate of Northern Highlands Regional High School and of Westchester University in Pennsylvania. The sign she had long advocated will mark the official entrance to Allendale near the ingress of the new park being constructed on what was to have been a 24-unit condominium tract along Franklin Turnpike between the A&P shopping mall and the Allendale Police Station. Mayor Vince Barra and the council also voted appointments at the meeting, following the reorganization meeting a few days earlier. Police Chief Robert Herndon was reappointed, as a private resident, to a seat on the Allendale Planning Board, and Councilman Ari Bernstein was appointed to the plan- ning board to replace Fred Litt, who elected not to seek reelection after two terms. Chief Herndon is a combat veteran of Viet Nam and Bernstein is an attorney with offices in Franklin Lakes. Bernstein took over from Litt on the Public Safety Committee, and Councilman Jim Strauch, a strong environmentalist and former assistant marsh warden, was appointed to the Land Use Committee. At the work session, Councilwoman Susan LaMonica advocated a program of performance management for employees so those borough workers who were doing good or excellent work would receive the routine enforcement of regular reviews and approvals. The council concurred that this would be a useful program. Speaking as police chief, Chief Herndon thanked the council for its expeditious handling of the PBA contract this year – a contract negotiated and approved before the year began. “It certainly makes it easier for me during the year,” Chief Herndon said. “It’s nice to have a seamless transition between the old contract and the new contract.” JIM’S HOME REPAIR Master Carpenter Painting Sheetrock Basement / Attic Clean-outs Doors Hung Tile Work Those Little Repairs NO JOB TOO SMALL OR BIG 25 YEARS REASONABLE RATES EXPERIENCE 201-788-8052 FREE BRIDGE LESSONS FOR 5TH - 12TH GRADERS Join the  Have fun and meet other junior players while playing the greatest card game. 8 lessons begin Wednesday, January 28, 3:15-4:45 pm Sign-up starts January 5th. 100 Ridge Road • Mahwah, NJ 07430 • 201-529-7323, ext. 5 Mahwah Public Library jukniewicz@bccls.org Sponsored by North Jersey Bridge Association, affiliate of American Contract Bridge League GRAND OPENING HARDING WINE&SPIRIT incredibly low price of $5.99 It’s a New Year!
