AAC Honors TIm Gordon

Monday June 20th was the annual end of season meeting held at Greenwood Gardens in Short Hills. Tim Gordon, retiring from the township after 31 years, was the honored guest of AAC. We showed our appreciation for his guidance and help of the past by presenting him with this piece of art glass by New Jersey based glass blower and sculptor, Eric McLendon. He was thrilled with the gift.
