This Day In History: 1937-02-11
At the monthly meeting of the Mahwah Fire Department It was urged that the temporary floodlights which had been installed outside the building as a temporary measure to assist patrons of their highly successful Bingo evenings be kept as a permanent feature. They had helped people see where they were going as they entered the building, and, it was believed, made it more difficult for gasoline to be siphoned from cars parked outside without detection. In other business the resignation of Richard Heiggerd, who had moved to his new job in Aliquippe, PA, was accepted with regret. There had been no fires in January, Chief Morris reported.
