When kids band together, their small actions can make a BIG difference 💙
Macaroni Kid, and local mom, Jacqueline Resnick 🙋♀️, hosted a "Touch-An-Ambulance"🚑 event on Saturday, June 19th from 10am to 12pm in the parking lot outside The General Store at Cornerstone in Upper Montclair!
After a more than challenging year, sharing in community service with our children and thanking the Montclair Ambulance staff proved to be an epic day! With YOUR help we raised more than $3k for local Montclair Ambulance Unit! Children participated in fun runs, lemonade stands and brought their allowances.
Springer joins members: Doug Kaplan (Board Chair), Rich McMahon (Vice Chair), Tim Barr (Treasurer), John Herrmann (Secretary), Anya Barrett, Lisa Barsanti-Hoyt, Alan Fox, Andrew Taddei, Chris Valerian, and Jonathan Hirsh.
No stranger to Montclair, Walter ran for 2nd ward Council seat in 2012. He is a 30-year resident of Montclair, along with his wife and children. His professional role is as Parish Business Manager of St. Cassian’s Church in Upper Montclair.
When asked about his interest is joining MAU, Springer said: "I’d like to really know how MAU rolls. The fact that Montclair’s emergency medical response is NOT a Township entity - I think it’s important for the community to know and understand. It may look automatic, but it’s not.”
Springer brings a vast experience in volunteerism. In the Montclair school system, Walter held leadership positions in the PTA, chairing and co-chairing many school events, and gave time and talent to Montclair Fund for Educational Excellence and Human Needs Foods Pantry. Additionally, Springer was a volunteer coach in the town recreation baseball and football programs.
As a prior multi-media marketing professional, Springer has the expertise to help MAU be more visible in the community. That and his financial background make him a valuable commodity. He is a member of Saint Cassian RC Church and serves as an usher and Eucharistic minister.
