If there is space, this page may one day carry a copy of our latest organization newsletter, published quarterly by the hpsoutnj.
"Half of the American people have never read a newspaper.  Half never voted for president.  One hopes it is the same half."  ~~ Gore Vidal
How did "sleigh bells" get started?  This is a quote from the website for East Hampton, CT, "Belltown USA"  [for this site , click on > ]
" ... Sleighs were a primary mode of transportation during cold winter months and were extremely quiet.  This imposed a safety hazard to unsuspecting pedestrians [and other sleighs(rs)] who shared the same rustic roads.  Law mandated that sleighs have sleigh bells to warn those nearby. ... " 
[Unsubstantiated rumor has it that the first such law, to prevent collisions at intersections, was passed in Cleveland, OH]
