University Heights Elementary School Celebrates 100th Day of School by Donating Supplies to Hamilton’s Animal Shelter
Today, Hamilton Township Mayor Kelly A. Yaede visited University Heights Elementary School to accept the school’s donation of food, toys and other supplies to benefit Hamilton Township’s Animal Shelter. As part of the school’s pillars of character program, a PTA parent’s idea led University Heights Elementary School to set out on a goal of collecting 100 items for Hamilton’s Animal Shelter in celebration of their 100th day of school.

Message from Mayor Kelly A. Yaede
To the Residents of Hamilton Township,
As 2013 begins, I’d like to wish you and all of our neighbors a very happy and healthy New Year.
Each New Year gives us a unique opportunity to reflect on our blessings from the past while we renew our outlook for the future.
In 2013, I and the Hamilton Township Municipal Government renew our shared commitment to you – the residents of our great community. This year, we will continue to work to enhance our township’s quality of life, continue to provide quality services to our residents, and continue to ensure good and responsible stewardship of your hard-earned tax dollars as we can work to keep taxes stable.
And although, like any community, ours will face challenges in the coming year, I am confident that 2013 will be a better year that will yield an even brighter future for the Hamilton Township we know and love.
Again, best wishes for a happy and healthy 2013, and I look forward to seeing you through this New Year.

Message from Mayor Kelly A. Yaede
The joy we see in decorations, lights, wreaths and evergreen trees, the joy we see in the eyes of young children who eagerly await the arrival of Santa, the joy many of us have, or will experience during the celebrations of our faiths, and the joy we share together as a special community of neighborhoods…
As we share in this joyous season with our families and loved ones, I wish those who will join me in celebrating, a very Merry Christmas.
And for those who have already celebrated Hanukkah or await Kwanzaa, my best wishes to you and our entire community for a very happy and healthy New Year.
