It is my pleasure to welcome our newest addition to the Mount Olive Family, Mt. Olive Life! I hope you enjoy reading the articles about our community, the people that work and live in Mount Olive, our businesses and all the wonderful opportunities Mount Olive offers. In addition, please remember to shop and support our local businesses.
As Mayor of Mount Olive, it is with great pride that we now have our very own magazine. The magazine will let me give you a snapshot of our community and why I feel Mount Olive is a great place to live, work and raise a family.
Why Mount Olive? Our schools, municipal services, economic and residential development, trails, open space, historical buildings, recreational events and facilities and our jewel of all jewels, Turkey Brook Park. Turkey Brook Park situated on 267 picturesque acres, is known for its pristine fields, a
one – of- a- kind splash pad, Dog Park and an award- winning playground, Mt. Playmore. Mount Olive is also home to many local farms, a food pantry, community garden and the South Branch Preserve.
Historical Flanders is a cozy place for a spring stroll and antique shopping. For the more outdoorsy, Budd Lake offers something for all ages. A quick sail to watch the breathtaking sunsets, boating, fishing and of course relaxing on the beach.
There is something to satisfy everyone’s culinary taste buds, from Mexican, Chinese, Indian, Brazilian, and Italian and let’s not forget the good old fashion hamburger. There are specialty stores, farm to table butcher shops, a creamery, brewery, and our very own Sister City Company where meats are cured with the fresh Mount Olive air.
There are businesses that have been in Mount Olive for over 50 years that will be featured in upcoming editions along with new entrepreneurs who are happy to call Mount Olive home.
The most valuable possessions our community has to offer are the residents and volunteers. The community that cares for one another, the community that is resilient to anything and the community that is strong together.
Together we continue to Gain Momentum!
Mayor Robert J. Greenbaum
