Township Committeeman was the principle speaker at the West Mahwah Citizens Club annual dinner. His talk centered on the work of paving and improving the roads of the West Mahwah section. During the last year, he stated, about half of the West Mahwah roads had been paved through a grant of $11,000 from W. P. A. He said that an additional grant was being sought to pave the remaining roads. When asked why the Township had not done the work earlier using its own funds he said that the Committee had decided that the tax burden would be too heavy, and then ten years before there had not been enough real estate in West Mahwah. Forty-nine members and guests attended the affair held at Monti’s Inn.
