BARRINGTON TO CELEBRATE 100TH ANNIVERSARY!
Artist’ s rendition of what the clock will look like. Park will include benches and a floral garden.
On March 27, 2017, Barrington will celebrate its 100th birthday as it is the anniversary of when the town was incorporated as a municipality.
To mark this historic event, we have many events planned and one special project—the construction of Centennial Park which will be located at Clements Bridge Road and Trenton Avenue, across from Borough Hall. Centennial Park will feature a beautiful town clock, benches, engraved pavers and a floral garden. There are several ways you can get involved. We are selling engraved pavers, boulevard banners and sponsorships for both the clock and the benches. The sponsorships for the clock and the benches have not been finalized yet but orders for engraved pavers and boulevard banners are currently being sold and can be personalized with your family or business name.
Please note that the pavers and banners will be sold ALL YEAR (2017) – there is no “due date.” Any unsold pavers will be left blank when installed for the March 25, 2017 clock ceremony, and replaced later with purchased (engraved) pavers.

ENGRAVED PAVERS—for a contribution of $100, you can purchase an engraved paver which will be located in one section of Centennial Park. It is a 4×8 EP Henry paver and can be personalized with three lines of type, 15 characters per line (including spaces). You can inscribe your family name, a business name, in memory of someone, or anything else you would like. These pavers have an epoxy fill and last indefinitely.
BOULEVARD BANNERS—for a contribution of $100, you can purchase a boulevard banner that will be hung on Clements Bridge Road at various times throughout the year. The banner can be personalized with your family name, business name or in memory of someone. These banners will be hung starting in March of 2017 and will remain hung until the holiday banners go up just before Thanksgiving. They will continue to be hung on Clements Bridge Road in the following two years in between the various holiday banners.
