Weekend Update – Labor Day Edition

Dear Resident,

In last week’s update, I was reviewing the tropical storm that had passed and noted that Marlboro’s OEM was monitoring tropical storms in the Atlantic. This week, Wednesday night into Thursday, one of those storms, the remnants of Hurricane Ida, passed through our area.  While there were some localized incidents of fallen trees and flooding, overall Marlboro fared well. Storm Alerts sent via email before, during and after storms, can be found HERE.  Please take a moment to ensure that you and your family are prepared to act fast in times of emergency. 

Labor Day Hours - Marlboro Town Hall and the Recycling Center will be CLOSED on Monday, September 6 in observance of Labor Day.  The Marlboro Farmers Market will be open on Sunday, September 5 from 9am to noon.  Please note the earlier market close due to the holiday weekend. 


Marlboro Farmers Market – As noted above, the Marlboro Farmers Market will be open on Sunday, September 5 from 9:00am to noon. Plan to stop by for all your Labor Day BBQ needs as well as food items and hostess gifts for your Holiday Table.  Due to the holiday weekend, the market will have an early close of noon. Learn more about the MFM HERE.  

Patriot Day Wreath Laying Ceremony – Saturday, September 11, Marlboro residents will come together to honor the 14 families and all those lost their lives on September 11. The ceremony will begin promptly at 8:30am at our September 11 Memorial located off Wyncrest Road and accessible by the Recreation Center parking lot.  We hope residents of all ages will join us on the 20th anniversary in commemoration of that fateful day.
