SUPER SATURDAY 2015
Washington Township will host its annual Super Saturday Celebration on Saturday May 9th beginning at 10:00 AM at the Washington Lake Park Amphitheater.
The annual event is a traditional crowd pleaser in Washington Township.
What makes Super Saturday so ‘super’ is that the theme, ‘Caring for the Needy’ truly embodies the spirit of the community! Come visit the FAMILY & COMMUNITY SERVCIES table as you enter the walk way and drop off an item(s) for Mother’s Cupboard pantry and receive a ticket for a free children’s ride. Suggested items are: paper products (towels, toilet tissue, napkins etc.), non-perishable food items, baby items (diapers, formula, wipes).
Super Saturday is like an old-fashioned town fair complete with amusement rides, family entertainment, great food and colorful, attractive vendor displays to browse and shop. Of course the best part is bumping into all your old friends and neighbors. It’s like a homecoming right there in the park.
Super Saturday by tradition has always benefited Washington Township's Family and Community Services Department where we offer programs such as; Christmas Angels, Mother's Cupboard and Referral's for counseling services, tutoring and Children's Groups. For additional information on these services call 589-0520 ext. 254 or stop by their table for details.
Super Saturday promises a little something for everyone- from arts and crafts and marching bands to great Mother's Day gifts and live music. Children’s activities include: face painting, balloons, inflatable and mechanical rides. Scheduled performances by the Washington Township Minutemen Marching Band at noon, the Washington Township middle school and 5th grade bands will entertain park guests in the morning hours. And this year a free live concert in the afternoon hours.

WINTER STORM INFORMATION
With the threat of multiple winter storms approaching, the Township’s Public Works Department is working diligently to ensure crews will be ready to respond as soon as possible.
Township supervisors constantly monitor a winter storm’s movement through the region, and have access to the most up-to-date forecast available.
Residents should be aware that Township trucks may plow their street several times before the snow ends. Snow that rolls off the plows may accumulate in driveway aprons. Please understand that this is unavoidable, and it is the homeowner’s responsibility to clear it.
Please note that not all roads in Washington Township are maintained by the Township. County thoroughfares, such as Egg Harbor and Greentree roads, are maintained by the Gloucester County Highway Department. To reach the Gloucester County Highway Department directly, please call (856) 307-6400. The Black Horse Pike is maintained by the NJ Department of Transportation, which can be reached at (609) 588-6213.
There are several steps residents can take to assist in the snow-plowing process:
- Do not park cars on the street starting from one hour after snow has continuously fallen, up until 12 hours after snow has stopped.
- Shovel snow to the right side of the driveway, facing the street, to minimize the amount of snow entering your driveway. Shovel or blow snow onto the curb, not into the street.
- Wait until Township trucks have made passes on your street before cleaning your driveway, if possible.
- Residents must remove snow from their sidewalks following snowfall to ensure the safety of pedestrians. In the event of deep snow, shovel around your mailbox and fire hydrants as well.
With the assistance of Washington Township residents and the strong resources and hard-working staff of the Township, snow events do not have to present dangerous situations.
