Paramus Earth Day At Petrushka Park

Paramus Earth Day 2013
Paramus celebrated Earth Day on Sunday, April 28th. Rather than revert to the grass of the Bandshell behind the Library, it was held again at Petrushka Park on hard surface. They could not have ordered a more perfect day. Not too hot, yet warm enough to wear short sleeve shirts, there was a slight breeze going through the exhibitor tent where there were a myriad of displays. One of the first people I met were Jorge Quintana, Ed Onorata and Jean Payoczkowski of the Paramus Environmental Commission. I say one of the first because on the way in from the parking lot I encountered Councilwomen MariaElena Bellinger (Liaison) and Donna Warburton. Shortly after that Mayor Rich LaBarbiera arrived with one of his sons.

It was political heaven because later on Assemblywoman Connie Wagner came with Rich, her husband, Councilman Ralph Amato, Assemblyman Tim Eustace and former Mayor Jimmy Tedesco. In addition, the two Democrat council candidates were seen meeting and greeting everyone. Former Councilman Denis Niland along with his wife and son Liam partook of the festivities. Denis looks so much younger without his moustache.

Jorge insisted that we stay for the Bergen County Sheriff's Officers dog demonstration. Having worked with attack dogs in the past, it was interesting to see that most of the techniques hadn't changed. Fielding questions from the audience, someone asked about their own and family safety around the dogs. They were assured that the German Shepherd Dog was as gentle as a lamb unless given coded instructions to perform his duty.

Among the exhibitors were Paramus Sunrise Rotary members from Doctors Express, Cartridge World and Valley Bank. A surprise celebrity was Produce Pete of TV fame. Our Shade Tree Department headed by Jay Sexton had an interesting display as did the Hackensack Riverkeeper, Tupperware and TD Bank to name a few. Everyone seemed to be happy with the onlookers who paid Paramus Earth Day a visit. www.paramusec.org.
