6/22/2017 - Statement from Hamilton Township Mayor Kelly Yaede Regarding Drowning in Roebling Park

The following statement is from Hamilton Township Mayor Kelly Yaede regarding the drowning in Roebling Park:


During what had been an extremely difficult week for our community, this second tragedy has caused our residents – and especially our town’s children and young adults -- additional heartache.

Our entire community sends our sympathies and our prayers to the family, friends and fellow classmates who are grieving during this painful moment from a life that we lost far too early.

While the events of this week have challenged us all, our community is comprised of compassionate citizens who illustrate their very best by being there for others in times of need.  This week is certainly one of those times.   

As difficult as the coming days will be, I am confident that our community will pull together a bit tighter, remain stronger for each other and show our fellow neighbors even greater compassion as we continue to grieve together.

I want to take a moment to thank all of the first responders who worked tirelessly in the ensuing search and rescue effort.  Our community is very fortunate to benefit from their dedication, service and courage.
