West Orange 37th Annual Old Timer's Day to be Held Sept. 14

By CYNTHIA CUMMING

September 5, 2013 at 6:22 PM

WEST ORANGE, NJ - West Orange Recreation Director Bill Kehoe has announced that the 37th Annual Oldtimer's Day will be held Saturday, Sept. 14 at Colgate Park beginning at noon.

A long-standing West Orange tradition, Old Timer's Day brings together heroes of the West Orange Community, whether they were involved in sports, businesses, township departments, or neighborhoods, that made a positive impact on the township then and now.

This year will be no exception as John Healy, a beloved member of the West Orange community who passed away in July at the age of 84, will be remembered.  Healy was an educator, guidance counselor and author,  and spent many years volunteering his time to the youth of West Orange with the Colgate Summer Youth program.

This year's honoress will be Robbie Pansulla, Mike Peer, Jim Huber, Ralph Minelli, Joe Storm, Pete Mitola, George O'Rourke, Drew Minelli, Dicky Woods and the Zeevalk family.  

Batting practice will begin at noon, and at 1:00 greetings and introductions, along with the John Healy dedication "Take Me Out to the Ball Game," will follow.  After the presentation of awards, an exhibition game will be held from 2:00-3:00 pm.  At 3:00 pm, there will be a reunion in Connor Hall at Our Lady of Lourdes.
