Members and Friends of the OHS,
We are very excited to announce that the OHS is planning a “return to normality” by having its annual picnic at the SHMM on Sunday, June 27 at 5:00 PM. “Discretion being the better part of valor”, we are limiting the number of attendees to 75. We are requesting that if you wish to attend that you either text me at 862 266-2836, email me at, or call us at (973) 827-4968. Please include your name and number of people attending by June 15th. On that date we will determine if there is sufficient interest to proceed with the event and, if so, will email you a request for the cost of the picnic. Checks may be made out to the Ogdensburg Historical Society and sent to Dianna J. Kibildis, 10 Arch Street, Ogdensburg, NJ 07439. We respectfully request that all checks be submitted by June 22.

The cost will remain the same as in 2019, $15 per person. Again, it will be catered by the “Brick & Brew” and will include hamburgers, hot dogs, barbecue chicken, sausage and peppers, pulled pork, chips, pasta salad, potato salad, fruit salad, chocolate chip cookies. Soda, coffee, and tea will be provided or BYOB. As in the past, a mine tour will be offered to all those who wish to attend. We are also hoping to offer various door prizes. Additional details will be emailed to you if we have determined after June 15th to proceed with the picnic.

We hope that you will be able to join us; feel free to invite a friend or neighbor. If you have any questions, please contact me.

Hope to see everyone,
John F. Kibildis. VP-OHS

Land Use Board Survey for Residents
The Land Use Board is working with the Board Planner on an Economic Development Plan for the Borough of Ogdensburg. Angela Knowles, Board Planner explained to the Board during their August 25, 2020 meeting via zoom/audio that she had spoken to different stakeholders and found a variety of topics that are of interest for the Borough. Those topics include opportunities for celebrating the Borough’s history, adding and/or connecting to existing biking and hiking trails, and revitalizing the Main Street.

The Land Use Board would like to get some feed back from the residents as to what they would like to see for the Borough.
