September 9, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES III • Page 27 Ho-Ho-Kus Jottings Becica to discuss the ‘first family’ of Ho-Ho-Kus The Hermitage History Roundtable will begin its fall season Wednesday, Sept. 30 at 7:30 p.m. with a presentation by local historian John Becica. Using Ree Hopper’s recently published genealogy of the first six generations of the Hopper family, Becica has continued his study of Ho-Ho-Kus during the Revolutionary War. His presentation is entitled “The Hoppers of Hoppertown: The ‘First Family’ of Ho-Ho-Kus, and Their Role in the American Revolution.” Becica is author of “The Revolutionary War in Ho-HoKus: Military Encounters at Hoppertown/Paramus, 17761781,” which was published in 1998. The historian will discuss the Hoppers, who were the founders of the present day Ho-Ho-Kus business district and the surrounding area. The Hoppers made it clear that they were committed to the Patriot cause. This made them targets for local Tories and the British. Thus, the ravages of war came to Hoppertown on four different occasions, culminating in the Siege of Hoppertown in April of 1780. The Hermitage History Roundtable is free and open to the public. The group meets in the John Rosencrantz Visitors’ Center, adjacent to the Hermitage at 335 North Franklin Turnpike, Ho-Ho-Kus. Family Movie, Jazz Concert set The community is invited to attend a free Family Movie and Jazz Concert on Friday, Sept. 11 at the Ho-Ho-Kus Town Green. This year’s movie features Duane “The Rock” Johnson, who tries to stop an alien invasion with the help of two kids with paranormal powers. This event is being hosted by the Ho-Ho-Kus Recreation Commission in cooperation with the Ho-Ho-Kus Chamber of Commerce. Bring a blanket or lawn chairs. The festivities will begin at 7 p.m. The Charles Pillows Quartet will play until dusk when the movie will begin. In the event of rain, the Ho-Ho-Kus Community Church will offer limited seating for the concert and movie. Borough hall changes hours of operation Ho-Ho-Kus Borough Hall hours of operation have been changed to 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. (Hours were previously 8:30 to 5.) The change will eliminate the need for shift changes of borough hall employees and will cut down on energy use. The change will not affect the standard 35-hour work week for borough hall employees. Hours of operation for the Ho-Ho-Kus Department of Public Works and police department will remain unchanged.
