[ARCHIVED] Pompton Lakes Reformed Church Recognized

Pompton Reformed Church Proclamation

At the April 12, 2017 Council meeting, the Mayor and Council recognized the re-dedication of the Pompton Reformed Church with a Proclamation. The church has been a long standing community institution in Pompton Lakes, having been established over two hundred years on the corner of Ringwood Ave and Hamburg Turnpike. The roof structure and beams had been damaged from a spring 2016 storm, and the sanctuary needed to for the past year. Through fundraising efforts by the church and the congregation, the church has been restored to its historic and architectural beauty. The Proclamation was read into record by Councilman Ek Venin, whose family are members of the church's congregation. 

"It's a beautiful church inside and out with a new new building, and a new roof that will last another two hundred years, I'm hoping," stated Mayor Mike Serra to some laughter, " It is one of the places in town people know. When you say Pompton Lakes, they know the Pomton Reformed Church - it's the big white church on the corner. I thank you for everything you've done."

The Pompton Reformed Church had also been previously designated as a local historic landmark by the Pompton Lakes Historic Commission on March 20, 2001.
