The Bicentennial Kicks Off

The Bloomfield Bicentennial Opening kickoff attracted hundreds of people from the community to Bloomfield High School's auditorium along with dozens of politicians and dignitaries from Essex county and beyond. The evening was a memorable salute to Bloomfield's 200 year history. The featured speaker was the legendary motivational speaker and atheleteRich Ruffalo(top photo)who shared many of his most memorable experiences growing up in Bloomfield within "a spear's throw of the Green."
The highlight of the evening was the sight of Mayor McCarthy and members of the township council in formal colonial costumes performing a reenactment of the signing of the town charter prompted by General Bloomfield himself(John Cataldo).
