This Saturday, April 30, Little Silver Recreation will present a Spring Sports Parade event, starting at 1:00 p.m. Lacrosse, softball, and baseball players from the borough’s programs will march wearing their team uniforms from the Little Silver Fire House to the Borough Fields, and will be led by members of the Little Silver Police and Fire Departments.
The parade will be followed by a ceremony presided over by Mayor Robert Neff, who will present the “Little Silver Spirit Award” to Kathleen Hoffman, who is retiring after coaching for over 15 years. Coach Hoffman has supervised all girls’ recreation sports programs in the borough, including lacrosse, which she was instrumental in starting eight years ago. Also being honored will be “Breast Cancer Survivors” whose continued good health will be celebrated.

As far as the payroll is concerned, Michael Biehl is still Little Silver’s borough administrator and clerk. But Biehl, who is recovering from what Mayor Suzanne Castleman called a “very serious surgery,” won’t be returning to borough hall.
“He will actually still be the administrator, but he has finished his active employment with the borough,” said borough Attorney John Bennett.
After 22 years, Biehl has stepped down from his everyday duties and is on terminal leave until December 31, meaning co-workers will have to fill his many duties by committee in 2011.
