Mayor Rudy Fernandez honored the Camuso Holiday Decoration Committee at Monday night's Livingston Township Council meeting. Fernandez presented representatives with a plaque for their hard work and dedication to preserving the Camuso family legacy.
An independent conservancy, the Camuso committee operates in partnership with the Business Improvement District and many local volunteers to preserve, repair and honor the bounty of holiday decorations, which were donated to the town by the family of the late Ernie Camuso.
This year, the committee plans to have the Christmas tree repaired, said a committee member.
The committee, adhering to another long-held Camuso tradition of collecting money for the Saint Barnabas Burn Foundation, presented a check for $1,800 to Director of the Burn Foundation Beverly K. Foster.
Fernandez also presented the Knights of Pythias with a plaque for Pythian Awareness Week.
