Metuchen Loses Dedicated Crossing Guard; Will Memorialize His Service in Town

Bob the crossing guard.jpgBob Moten, our erstwhile dedicated crossing guard on Main Street near Campbell School, died suddenly last week. Check out this beautiful memorial to him from Julie Walton Shaver and, for those of us who were hoping something nice would be done to memorialize him further in town, read this lovely note from Councilwoman Sheri-Rose Rubin. Wherever Bob has gone, he is sure to know how much we all loved and appreciated his service and kindness every single day.

From Councilwoman Sheri-Rose Rubin:
At {the most recent} Council meeting, we passed a resolution to honor Bob by posting a street sign at the corner of Main and Talmadge with his name on it.  We will prepare it to say whatever the family would like and it will be mounted on the already existing street sign above the street names. It will be made during the summer and then mounted and presented during a ceremony at the beginning of school next year. We will plan to ask the police to close off the street so Mrs. Carter can arrange for the children to come outside. 

The other item that was mentioned is a new program by the Shade Tree Commission to allow people to purchase a memorial plaque and plant a tree to honor someone.  This might be something a group of people want to do with any donations that have been collected.
