Good Night Irene

Hurricane Irene Passing By

There has been flooding but little wind damage as of noon, Sunday Morning.  The Education Building was opened at 3 am as an emergency station… three hours ahead of schedule because all roads crossing the Saddle River were closed or closing.  For a while, Upper Saddle River was a town divided by water.  The police and volunteers from the Upper Saddle Fire Department and the Saddle River Rescue Squad were in Fellowship Hall.  As they waited for one of their numerous calls, John Seibert and Pastor Bob Fretz provided hospitality including French Toast and Chili.  The water started to subside and the first responders returned to their stations.  Thanks goes to them for serving our community and keeping us safe!
