Volunteers to return to Passaic Valley Road site to continue renovations for local groups' new home.
Volunteers are continuing to put the finishing touches on renovations to a Passaic Valley Road property known as the "Little House" so that three local groups can move in and make the house a home. Once completed, the house will be used by the Montville Township Recreation Department, the Montville Kiwanis Food Pantry and the Montville Police Explorers program. Currently, the food pantry is using space at the Montville United Methodist Church but does not have enough room for storage and the Explorers are using the police station for training, although coordinator Frank Cooney said it would be better to be out of officers' way in a separate facility. The house, which was built in the 1940s, has been vacant for some time after being used …

Home Depot bringing more than 30 volunteers to Passaic Valley Road to renovate old house.
Three local groups will come together under one roof after renovations to the "little house" at 91 Passaic Valley Road are complete. In the meantime, volunteers from Home Depot are planning to help speed up the process by donating time and materials to complete the renovations. The house, originally built in the 1940s, was situated on a horse farm. It is located next to a barn often used by the Montville Township Recreation Department for programs and events after it was purchased by the township nearly 15 years ago. At one point, the space was also used by the Montville Township Board of Education for special services. According to John Ehntholt, a Home Depot employee who has coordinated the project with the township, 30 volunteers from …

Annual derby held at Masar Park on Saturday morning.
It may have been a bit cloudy and damp on Saturday morning, but that did not stop the regulars and newcomers from casting lines into Masar Pond. The annual event held for local children in preschool through fifth grade for more than 40 years is sponsored by Montville P.B.A. Local 140 and Montville Kiwanis, and coordinated by the Montville Recreation Department. Volunteer helpers include students from the R.E.A.C.H. program, Police Explorers and township police. The pond is stocked with trout, catfish, blue gill and bass. Children catch fish and then bring them up to get measured and recorded. Prizes were awarded in many categories. Food and prizes were provided by Kiwanis, the P.B.A. and the recreation department.

With comments from a mom and two Montville mayors—plus the completion of a rhyme.
This week's Where In Montville featured a closeup of a sundial at the Community Park Playground and received comments from two Montville mayors. Former Mayor Art Daughtry correctly IDed the spot and noted the sundial was dedicated to Carl Kieber, the first president of the Kiwanis Club. Current Mayor Tim Braden suggested that perhaps Mr. Daughtry had an advantage because, as it turns out, Mr. Daughtry installed the sundial along with Mr. Braden. Art, I am not going to say that you cheated in this contest but I have a picture of you installing this sundial! Carol said she was showing her son how to use the sundial, which could certainly come in handy if his smart phone ever runs out of battery and he needs to know the time. I was just …
