Mendham Borough Historical Society Plans First Meeting For Fall

Mendham Borough Historical Society plans to open its fall season on Tues., Sept. 27, at 7 p.m., in the Garabrant Center in Mendham Borough.
Raymond Richard Willis plans to present the program “Mendham Memories”- from the late 1800s through the 1950s, as seen through the eyes of his grandmother right down the family line to the speaker himself. Accompanied by visuals, Willis relates stories, tales and memories of the Mendhams- among them known and unknown folks, commerce, schools, churches and homes from farms to grand estates.
Born in Morristown Hospital, he grew up at his grandparents’ Hillcrest Farm on Hardscrabble Rd., attended Hilltop School and West Morris Regional High in Chester. Willis is a lifelong area resident, retired from the printing business. A life member of MBHS and several other Historical Societies, Willis now lives in Lake Hopatcong, where he is a trustee of their Historical Museum, and a frequent presenter at various area societies and organizations. The public is invited; parking and program are free.
