HANOVER —The public is invited and encouraged to share their most engaging pictures of Hanover Township to be considered for use in a 2020 monthly desk calendar, “Great Things Happen In Hanover!” to be created this summer.
The Township Business Administrator and Community Affairs/Public Policy Coordinator will review all submissions and select those photographs that best capture what distinguishes the community as a “town for all seasons” and an ideal place “to live, work, and play.” Selected pictures will feature winter, spring, summer, and fall landscapes of our parks and other attractions such as the Whippany River, Whippany Railway Museum, the Stoney Brook Community Farm and Garden, and the Whippany Burying Yard. Scenes from signature annual events like Little League Opening Day, the Arbor Day Celebration, the Memorial Day Parade, July Patriotic Celebration, Hanover Township Day, Masquerade at Malapardis, and volunteer community service events are other examples of pictures that may be selected to represent a particular month of the year.
The Township will have 300, 5¼ inch by 4½ inch calendars made up in time to distribute to the public free of charge on a first come, first served basis during Hanover Township Day, Saturday September 7 (rain date September 8), and thereafter, from the public counters at Town Hall while supplies last. An on-line version of the calendar will also be posted on the Township’s website.
Members of the public interested in submitting photos for consideration should e-mail their high resolution, color pictures in a jpg format at any point between Thursday, January 10 and Friday, May 31 to Community Affairs/Public Policy Coordinator Robin Dente, at Rdente@hanovertownship.com.
The subject line of the transmittal e-mail should read, “Hanover Township Calendar Project.” Please limit photo attachments to two per e-mail (multiple e-mails can be sent).
The Township will confirm receipt of all submissions and will follow up at a later date with everyone whose picture was selected. All contributors whose photographs will be included in the calendar will need to sign the Township’s standard release form to verify the owner’s consent to allow the picture to be used.
The Township looks forward to working with residents and members of the public on this project to showcase the Hanover Township community.
