Happy 100 Years to Harding, our home!

This summer is flying by and we are approaching our next exciting Centennial events!

September 1st marks the official 100th anniversary of the formation of Harding Township. To celebrate, we will be hosting a ceremony at Memorial Park from 6-8pm. This ceremony will feature readings and remarks by various Harding Residents spanning multiple generations, as well as performances by the Harding Community Choir. Join us as we celebrate this milestone date, and reflect on Harding’s past, present, and future. We will be dedicating a Centennial Bench and Willow Oak tree. Following the ceremony we will have refreshments served by Scream Ice Cream Truck and Pizza Vita Pizza Truck.

On October 1, 2022 we will be hosting Margetts Field Centennial Festival! This exciting event will feature live music, food trucks, children’s & family activities, a beer garden, and fireworks to end the event. The festival will be from 2pm until the fireworks end after sunset. This event will feature tables and booths from various town organizations— if you or your group would like to attend with a booth please reach out to Rita Chipperson at RChipperson@hardingnj.org for more details.

We have several sponsorship opportunities for our Margetts Field Festival. All donations will include a listing on the Donors page of the Harding Centennial website, a listing in our September 1st Dedication Ceremony event brochure, a listing on our sponsorship banner at the Margetts Field Festival, and the option to provide the business’ own information at the event for marketing purposes—this can be discussed in further detail. If you or your business would be interested in sponsoring the event, please contact Rita at the address above.

Lastly, we are always interested in gaining new volunteers for the Centennial Committee. There are many ways to get involved, so please contact us if you are interested.

We can’t wait to celebrate with you at our upcoming events!
