November 16, 2004    After months of anticipation we have decided to arrange a committee meeting to see if we can really pull off the most tremendous event to ever hit Millburn.  We have the support of the Superintendent of the school system.  We have the approval of the Mayor.  Lets make this happen.  The next meeting is scheduled for Monday November 22nd at 6:00PM at the Millburn Police Complex.  Please talk this up to anyone you know who is not on this email list.  Iím sure I might have left some out by omission.  Just let me know if you can attend.  We are thinking about bringing in some food  so you wont miss dinner. Thanks for all your past support.  We look forward to seeing you.
