CENTENNIAL COCKTAILS WITH EX-MAYORS

The big-splash events — the parade, the townwide picnic, the boat parade — may be past but the Red Bank Centennial Committee still has a few items on its dance card.

One is a cocktail party in honor of the borough’s former mayors scheduled for Tuesday night at the Molly Pitcher Inn.

“We have four living former mayors, and the committee thought it appropriate, in our centennial year, to honor their many years of service,” says Mayor Pasquale Menna.

The ex-mayors are Judge Benedict R. Nicosia (1963-1966), former state Supreme Court Associate Justice Daniel J. O’Hern (1966; 1969-1978), Dr. Michael J. Arnone (1982-1990), and Edward J. McKenna (1990-2006).

Tickets to the two-hour event are $125 apiece. Proceeds will be used to fund a smattering of future centennial events to be announced, says Menna.

The event is open to the public and starts at 6p; cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served. For more information or to purchase tickets, contact Pamela Borghi at 732.530.2797 or Doreen Hoffmann at 732.530.2748.

The next scheduled centennial event, Menna says, is the dedication of a bronze statue of William ‘Count’ Basie at the Red Bank train station on Aug. 14. The statue was paid for by private donors, he says.

Curious about who else has led our fair burg over the past hundred years?
