This Day In History: 1942-03-03
The Defense Council announced that supplies of sand had been delivered at strategic places around the Township. Householders were urged to place at least two pails of this said in their attics to be used in case of incendiary bomb attacks. Air Raid Wardens were available to explain to any resident how the sand should be used. The announced locations of the sand deposits illustrate how much Mahwah has changed since 1942.
