The Hopatcong Borough continues their deep support of the local Senior Community, through their Senior Picnic that Honors the two Seniors of the Year!

Pictures from the Event:

During this great Senior Picnic, the following one Male & Female seniors were honored:

Mrs. Patricia Hofmann: Winning Letter Sent to the Hopatcong Mayor

Nominating Letter: As a member of the Hopatcong Senior Advisory Committee I would like to recommend Mrs. Patricia Hofmann as a candidate to be considered for 2017 female Senior of the Year.

I have known Pat for several years and can say without reservation she is a sincere and honest lady who has worked hard at a number of community activities within our town.

Pat has been actively involved with the Hopatcong Women’s Club for over 50 years volunteering to work with the club to the betterment of our community. She is a member of the Trip Committee of the Hopatcong Seniors Inc. and works hard to provide enjoyable trips and parties for our club members. She is a volunteer counter at St. Jude’s Church helping to make sure the Sunday collections are counted properly and make sure they get deposited in a timely manner as required. She also volunteers at Church in several of our fund raising activities. Pat worked many years at the Hopatcong High School Library and I know that she befriended many young students over the years. Pat is quick to help with driving seniors to doctors or for any type of health services should they need transportation.

I believe Pat Hofmann is an ideal candidate for female Senior of the Year.

William Wagner: Winning Letter Sent to the Hopatcong Mayor

Nominating Letter: I would like to nominate William Bill” Wagner for the 2017 Male Senior of the Year.

Bill has been a resident of Hopatcong for almost 50 Years. He is the husband of Carol Wagner. They have been married for 51 years and he is the father of 4 children and 3 grandchildren.  He is an avid collector of antique cars and has made this a family bond. All of his family participate together in shows and events around the state to promote the beauty of cars of long ago. 

Bill has been a visible and committed member of our Borough for years.  He was an Usher for years at St. Jude’s Church. He was involved with the soap box derby for 14 years and offered his place of business as well as donating materials for our young people to build and design their own soap box cars. Everyone eventually had the opportunity to show off their accomplishments and race in an annual Hopatcong event. For years he hosted a Halloween Haunted House on his property. He designed a special train to take the visitors around the decorated area while trying to scare them along the way! He did this project with his own funding requesting donations at the entrance – not for himself but to donate all money collected to help with research at the St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital! He raised several thousand dollars for this wonderful cause. When Bill heard the famous Fairy Tale Forrest was going to close, he jumped in and saved it – running it for several years - so children of all ages could continue to enjoy this little park. In 2014, our former Mayor, Sylvia Petillo, honored Bill for all his work - with his own” Bill Wagner Day!

Bill and Vito Castoro, who owned Sign Art, had been close friends for many years – Bill provided & created many of the wonderful displays that were an annual event at the company. When Vito died a few years ago, Bill saw the need to keep this wonderful holiday tradition alive. So once again, he used his talents to bring the magnificent “Christmas Spectacular” to Modick Park. And what a display he created! His visions and creativity are amazing and children of all ages come from around the state come to see his show come alive during the holiday season! I have dubbed him The Walt Disney of Hopatcong!!!

I feel strongly that Bill represents the dedication and compassion as well as the commitment and strong community support that we seek to honor in a Senior of the Year. Therefore, I submit his name as a candidate for the 2017 award.

Sincerely, Ida Brown. Chairperson, Senior Advisory Board
