Ongoing:

The township is offering garden plots at Freedom Park, which it has done since the park opened in 1997.

Located in the area of the park near the pickleball courts and skatepark, each plot is approximately 25 feet by 25 feet, but due to the large demand, plots can be divided into halves and quarters for those who prefer a smaller plot.

Water is available, but gardeners are responsible for providing seeds, plants, hoses and fencing. Plots will be assigned according to the order in which the applications are received. If you are a returning gardener, you are given the first opportunity to claim your space year after year.

For more information contact the Manager’s Office at (609) 654-2608 ext. 330 or email jbolen@medfordtownship.com.

Attention fellow Shawnee High School 1974 classmates: You were part of the first class to go all four years at the (then) brand new high school and graduate in June 1974. Although 50 years have passed, you still have the opportunity to be first when it comes to another class milestone. The 50th reunion of the Class of 1974 will take place on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 27 and 28. There will be a tailgating event at Shawnee on Friday, Sept. 27 as the Renegades take on arch-rival Lenape at 6 p.m. And yes, the Shawnee-Lenape game is no longer on Thanksgiving Day, but is still a conference battle of neighborhood schools. An informal dinner/social event will be held Saturday, Sept. 28 from 6-10 p.m. at the Medford Village Country Club on Himmelein Road. There is no cost for the tour/tailgating/football game, but classmates must RSVP by August 1.

Medford Township is offering businesses and residents an opportunity to sponsor new banners for Main Street. This project originated with the Woman’s Club of Medford in 2015. Now, after eight years of proudly being displayed, it’s time to replace them. Each banner will include the name of the sponsor and will be attached to the light poles along Main Street. For information visit the township’s Facebook page or contact the Clerk’s Office at (609) 654-2608 ext. 330.
