This Day In History: 1953-03-21
As their part of a county-wide safety program, the Woman’s Club of Mahwah sponsored “Operation Red Tape”. At each of the Townships Fire Houses volunteers were present to apply safety tape the children’s bicycles. This tape showed up as red during the daylight hours and glowed in the dark when hit by automobile headlights. Youngsters from east of the tracks could go to Fire Company #1 and those west of the railroad went to Company #2. Fardale bicycles were serviced at the Fardale Fire House.
