The museum held a very successful presentation last Saturday (11/18) with Jonathan Cohen presenting on the “Centennial Edition — AL QUE QUIERE!”

There was a small but intimate audience for Jonathan’s 45-minute Power Point on William Carlos Williams notable 1917 book of poems. This book of poems became sought after by writers and poets just as literary scholars had looked to Walt Whitman’s iconic “Leaves of Grass” for inspiration, Cohen said.

In the audience were people from surrounding communities of Nutley and Secaucus. An enthusiatic audience included Stephen W. Hahn, PhD, professor in the Department of English, William Paterson University, and Jim Klein and Zorida Mohammed of the Red Wheelbarrow Poets.Rod Leith, the Rutherford Borough Historian, introduced Cohen, who is of the teaching staff of the State University of New York, Stony Brook Campus and is an award winning translator of Latin American poetry.

Following a book signing sesion, Leith presented Cohen with a copy of the Rutherford Historic Preservation Committee’s Historic Commemorative ornament of William Carlos Williams 9 Ridge Road.
The afternoon’s program kept with tradition with Zorida Mohammed presenting Cohen with a bouquet of her lucious Amorello flowers.

The new exhibit at the Meadowlands Museum is now open until Spring 2018! Come check out Rutherford’s Preservation: Successes and Losses during your next visit. This exhibit explores the historic preservation of some of Rutherford’s iconic structures, like Iviswold Castle, and the unfortunate loss of others, like The Maples and Schermerhorn House.

Thanks to the Kearny Fire Department, and especially Fire Chief Robert Osborn, for giving us a great tour of their restored firehouse, which now serves as a museum and meeting hall! The photo on the left shows the mat that would catch people jumping out of burning buildings (though is now covered with patches), and the photo on the right shows the fire helmets of retired firemen and women, as well as hanging pictures of notable fires that were fought in Kearny. Below is a photo of some of the earliest fire helmets dating back to the late 1800s-early 20th century. Did you know that each man’s head is measure to create a helmet with an individualized precise fit?!

Thank you Kearny Fire Department for all you do for the community and preserving this wonderful part of Meadowlands history!

Care2Share

Image result for investors bank care to share

Have you heard about the latest way to automate your donations to the Meadowlands Museum?

The Meadowlands Museum is now enrolled in the Care2Share Investors Bank program. It makes donations to the Museum very easy (and it’s free to set up!) and helps us to remain a cornerstone of the community.

 

What is Care2Share?

When you bank at investors, you can link any personal checking or savings account to a non-profit organization (like the Meadowlands Museum) that is enrolled in the program. Investors Bank then calculates and sends quarterly contributions based upon the average monthly balances you maintain in your linked accounts.

 

How Does it Work?

When you link your eligible accounts to an enrolled non-profit, the organization will receive from Investors Bank .25% on the average monthly balance of your checking account or .15% on the average monthly balance of your savings account. Simply complete an Investors Care2Share Account Linking/Unlinking form. This is free and does not affect any of the features or benefits that come with your accounts. You can enroll your Investors Checking Account, Investors Savings Account (Statement, Passbook, Money Markets, and CDs), and Investors IRAs.

 

 

Help Support the Meadowlands today by contacting any Investors Branch or visiting https://www.myinvestorsbank.com/Community/Care2Share
