"The Old Elm Tree"

"The Old Elm Tree"I found this postcard titled "Hackettstown, NJ The Old Em Tree." Claiming that it is the oldest tree in New Jersey. I could not find any information. It may be long gone by now (Dutch Elm disease?). Hopefully someone knows something about it. The card has a divided back which would indicate that it was printed sometime after 1907.

Missing Feral Male Cat

Missing Feral Male CatHas anyone seen a gray cat with white markings under his nose and chin and down his chest in the Hackettstown High School, Greenview Garden, and Warren Street area in town?

He has been missing for almost 6 weeks now and the caregiver is very upset. Hoping that someone has seen him or knows what happened to him.

I am trying to post a photo, but so far have not been able to do so. Please contact me and I will send one directly to you

Thank you!

Sod Farm Question

We want to sod our lawn. Can anybody recommend a Sod Farm in Great Meadows? There are several. Also, have any Hackettstowlifers used a Lawn Service that was reliable? We need to put in a new lawn. This is for a property located in Independence. Thank you.
