100 years young: Clarence B. Grovatt celebrates


More than 195 people help well-known Tabernacle farmer mark a century of birthdays
By BRIGIT BAUMA
The Sun
It is not often that someone gets
to live to be 100 years old. However, Tabernacles Clarence B.
Grovatt achieved that milestone a
little more than a week ago.
The Grovatt family, friends and
government officials came out on
Saturday, Aug. 13 to celebrate
Clarences 100th birthday on Aug.
15. More than 195 people came to
the celebration at the Tabernacle
United Methodist Church where
Clarence received cards, gifts,
desserts, a proclamation and a
key to the township.
I
was
dumbfounded,
Clarence said about his birthday
party.
Clarence didnt think his 100th
birthday party would be a big celebration, however his daughtersin-law Cynthia and Pat said they
had to do something. It started
with just families and friends, but
grew into so much more when
they were contacted by multiple
people wanting to honor Clarence
for his 100th birthday.
On behalf of the Township
Committee, Mayor Stephen Lee
IV gave Clarence a key to the
township along with a proclamation. A representative from Congressman Tom McArthurs office
spoke about Clarence, too. Local

Clarence Grovatt recently celebrated his 100th birthday with family,


friends and township officials. Here
he stands in front of his cornfield
that he used to farm, but now rents
to the Russo family. Earlier this
year, Grovatt helped plow the fields.

businesses donated flowers and


cake for the celebration.
A highlight of the birthday
was The New Spirit Quartet, one
of Clarences favorite singing
groups, singing Happy Birth-

day to him, and he was named


an honorary member of the Ever
Ready Hunting Club. Of course,
Clarence was happy to see family
and friends from near and far.
Clarence was born on Aug. 15,

1916, in the Grovatt family farmhouse on Springside Road in Rancocas. His parents were Nelson L.
Grovatt and Jeannette (Friend)
Grovatt. He grew up with his
older brothers Edward, Russell,

Howard, Walter and his sister


Alice VanSciver and younger sibling Nelson Jr.
Clarence came from a family of
farmers, his grandfather being
one, and worked on the farm
since he was 5. Clarence said they
didnt have machines back then
to farm, everything was by hand.
He remembered going from hoes,
to horses and machines, and to
his familys first tractor with
metal wheels. Clarence said his
father asked him before his brothers to learn to drive the tractor.
After graduating high school,
Clarence worked for his dad on
the farm during the summer and
in the winter worked at Buds
Manufacturing plant in Philadelphia. He said it was around the
time of the Depression, so many
people were laid off, but he kept
being transferred to different departments, finally ending up in
welding.
In 1939, Buds Manufacturing
changed to Chevrolet Chassis to
make airplanes. Clarence became
a full-time instructor, teaching
Rosie Riveters how to weld.
Each time the draft was up,
Clarence was excused.
In 1940, Clarence married his
wife Sadie Emily VanSciver. The
first time Clarence met Sadie was

Help squash mosquito breeding


Burlington County, as the
largest county in New Jersey, has
large areas that have potential to
breed mosquitoes. These areas include, farmland, fresh and salt
water wetlands, home yards,
storm water facilities and sewer
plants. These areas need to be addressed as best as possible to control mosquitoes and the viruses
they can spread. One of the best
ways to control a pest over a large
area is by approaching the area as
an area-wide integrated pest
management. Integrated pest
management is an approach that
focuses on multiple sources to
control a pest, while area-wide
tries to group it all together and
get everyone working at once.
Mosquito complaints must be
in reference to a low-lying area,
stagnant water container or tires.
Complete the Mosquito Complaint Form at www.co.burlington.nj.us/881/Mosquito-ControlComplaint-Form.
Stagnant pool complaints
should be entered using the

Health Department Complaint


Form at www.co.burlington.nj.
us/882/Health-Department-Comp
laint-Form.
There are some proven techniques to control mosquitoes
such as: biological control, the
use of other animals; chemical
control, the use of pesticides; cultural control, education; and environmental control, the reduction
of breeding habitat.
By using all these techniques
the hope is to reduce the risk of
mosquito-born disease as well
as reduce the nuisance complaints.
Mosquitoes have probably had
a greater influence on human
health and well-being throughout
the world than any other insect.
Mosquitoes are pests, causing severe annoyance at times; bites
can itch for days, and some people
may actually suffer restlessness,
loss of sleep and nervous irritation. Mosquitoes have also been
shown to cause serious economic
loss through restriction of out-

door activities. In extreme cases,


mosquitoes have actually caused
the death of humans and domestic animals.
Not only are mosquitoes a nuisance, they are also capable of
transmitting numerous diseases
to humans, such as encephalitis
and malaria, both of which occur
in the United States. Locally, both
Eastern Equine Encephalitis and
St. Louis Encephalitis can be
transmitted to humans by mosquitoes. Since the outbreak of
West Nile Encephalitis in New
Your City in 1999, the county is
continuing to increase its program in the control of West Nile
Virus and encephalitis in
Burlington County.
Mosquitoes also transmit animal diseases. Included is Eastern
Equine Encephalitis and West
Nile, which affects horses and
birds as well as humans, and dog
heartworm.

in our opinion

PARCC is here to stay

108 Kings Highway East


Haddonfield, NJ 08033
856-427-0933

Like it or not, passing the standardized test will soon be a requirement

Richard Donnelly
ceo of newspaper media group

he state Board of Education


adopted a measure earlier this
month that will require high
school students to pass the infamous
PARCC tests in English and math to
graduate high school.
While the controversial PARCC tests
have been administered for two years
now, they havent meant much to students futures. Starting with the class
of 2021, which will enter eighth grade
this fall, passing the Algebra I and
10th-grade English part of the test will
be a requirement to receive a high
school diploma.
PARCC has been a highly controversial standardized test since it was first
put into effect two years ago. Opponents feel, among numerous other
things, that the test is too hard, that
its too tough for kids to take entirely
on a computer and that it bucks the
nationwide trend of moving away
from standardized testing in general.
In the last four years, the number of
states that require students to pass an

Your thoughts
What do you think about PARCC being a
graduation requirement for high school?
Share your thoughts on this, and other
topics, through a letter to the editor.

exit exam for graduation has been reduced almost in half from 25 in 2012
to 15 currently. Concerns range from
low passing rates preventing a large
number of students from graduating
to simply too much testing.
New Jersey, though, feels differently.
State Education Commissioner David
Hespe says the 2021 effective date of
PARCC as a graduation requirement
will give school districts and students
enough time to adjust to the new test
and improve upon their scores.
Lets hope hes right on that last
point, as only 41 percent of test takers
passed Algebra I last year and only 44
percent passed 10th-grade English.
We tend to agree with Hespe on this
point, though. Many students who
took the test the last two years knew it

didnt matter, so it would be no surprise if we could assume that many


didnt take the test seriously. Make the
test a graduation requirement, and
students will be more likely to try
harder.
While we dont necessarily like the
PARCC test in all forms, were not so
hell-bent against standardized testing
as a graduation requirement, in general. Education in New Jersey has always been held to a higher standard,
and its paid off; our students rank
higher than most in other states.
Can PARCC itself be improved and
better reflect a students learning? Of
course. But theres time to do that before 2021. Frankly, every student who
graduates high school in our state
should have the ability to pass a test in
Algebra I and 10th-grade English. How
those tests are administered, and how
they align with what we teach our
children in the classroom are what
need to be ironed out between now and
when its too late.

County trees still affected by emerald ash borer


Burlington County is still being affected
by the emerald ash borer. The EAB is a
non-native insect pest that infests and kills
all species of ash trees. With 24.7 million
ash trees, approximately 9 percent of New
Jersey forests are susceptible to EAB attacks. Although rarely the most abundant
tree in a forest stand, ash is still found in 24
percent of all forestland. The greatest
numbers of ash trees can be found in the
northern part of the state. Ash is also com-

monly planted along streets, as landscape


trees in yards, and in parks throughout the
state.
Infestations of the EAB throughout the
U.S. and Canada have killed tens of millions of ash trees since 2002.
The EAB was discovered in New Jersey
in May 2014 in Somerset County. As of
June 2016, it has been found in New Jersey
in Bergen, Burlington, Mercer, Middlesex,
Monmouth and Somerset counties.

Candidates considered for superintendent, business administrator


By BRIGIT BAUMA
The Sun
The Tabernacle School District
is close to choosing its next leaders.
Interim Superintendent John
Sherry announced the candidates
for the positions of superintendent,
business
administrator/board secretary
and chief of school administrator
have been chosen and contracts
are being drafted. The board is
hoping to have a public meeting
and announcement of the new
leaders before Aug. 31.
Earlier in August, the Board of
Education had a number of special meetings where candidates
were interviewed. Though the
board did not reveal names, Sherry did say candidates have been
identified for all three positions.
Sherry said the candidates credentials have been sent to solicitor Cameron Morgan and that a
draft document for the superintendent contract has been sent to
the executive county superintendent of schools for approval.
Once all of the documents are
approved and candidates accept
the offers, the board will have a
special meeting to appoint them
and make a public announcement. Sherry hopes the appointment will be before the school
year.
I am hopeful, knock on wood,
that prior to the 30th of August
we will be posting broadly an announcement that there is a special board meeting and inviting
everyone to come, Sherry said.
Not much was said about the
candidates; however, Board President Victoria Shoemaker spoke
positively of the new superin-

tendent.
Hopefully you will find, as we
found, that the new superintendent is very open to communication and community relations,
Shoemaker said.
A resident asked how the transition will go. Sherry said the goal
is to have the superintendent
ready to start by Nov. 1, as there is
a 60-day notification clause in the
contract.
Sherry also said he would be
serving as the historic mentor for
the new superintendent, available
by phone and to meet in person
for the first year, if the superintendent needs guidance or has
questions. The state requires an
official mentor assigned by the
New Jersey Association of School
Administrators, but Sherry will
stay on for $100 a month to teach
the superintendent the Tabernacle way.
I just want to take the opportunity during the first year to be
able to explain the Tabernacle
way, Sherry said.
In the future, Sherry said it is
not uncommon once the superintendent is announced to see him
or her attending meetings and becoming a presence in the township. Shoemaker also said a superintendent welcome reception
is being discussed for the future,
one for faculty and one for the
public.
As of Thursday, Aug. 18, no
date of the special meeting to appoint the administrators has been
announced.
In other news:
Sherry announced, at the request of the board, that Morgan
will not be required to be in attendance at the monthly BOE meetings. If there are any question
that require the attorney, they
will be jotted down and will be
sent to Morgan for answers.
Those answers will then be supplied to the board and community
as needed. The public clapped
upon hearing this change.
We are trying this because I
think this is the direction that the

board and the community would


like to see us going, Sherry said.
On the agenda was a resolution to authorize the administration to go out to bid for an elementary school generator not to exceed $5,000. According to Sherry,
the school is in need of the generator for when children are in
school and the power goes out or
an emergency comes up. The
school has the option of a grant
for a 60/40 split of the cost and
maybe additional money from the
state in the form of ROD grants
or hurricane relief.
Members of the public said
they felt there were a lot of questions to be asked about the generator still and the money for the
generator could be put to use for
other things needed in the district.
Some members of the board
agreed, saying committing $5,000
with all of these questions raised
may require the resolution to be
looked into further. Sherry reminded board members that
$30,000 has already been invested
into the project with engineering
and study fees, and that the
school would not get the 60/40
split if the project is not pursued.
The resolution did not pass, as
it received three yes votes and
four no votes, with Antony Laudicina, Brian Lepsis, Julia Sailer
and John Trico voting no and
John Bulina, Megan Jones and
Shoemaker voting yes.
On Sept. 7, the board will hold
a special meeting to tour the
school facilities. The tour will
begin at 6 p.m. at the Indian Mills
Elementary School to the Sequoia
Alternative Program and end at
the Kenneth R. Olson Middle
School. Those who attend will see
what work has been done this
summer by maintenance, see
what the faculty has been doing
and see what projects the board
will have to take into consideration for the 2017-2018 budget.
Welcome back letters were
scheduled to be sent to parents
and students on Aug. 23.

Special to The Sun

Clarence B. Grovatt (front row, second from left) is pictured as a


young boy with his parents and siblings. Grovatt recently celebrated
his 100th birthday.

Grovatt never retired,


he just slowed down

Continued from page 1

an interesting one, as he was 7


and she was 3. Sadies mother
came in and saw Clarence on the
couch and put Sadie in his lap to
watch her. That was the first of
his many encounters with Sadie,
before leading to their marriage.
In 1942, Sadies father died and
Clarence quit his job to take over
Sadies fathers farm in Willingboro, where Route 130 is now.
They grew corn, tomatoes, peaches and pumpkins. When the town
started to be developed, Clarence
sold his land to Acme and acquired land in Tabernacle to
move his family.
Clarence, with the help of
friends and family, built the house
and structures still located on his
land today. Then, Clarence moved
his family to their home in Tabernacle Township in 1959. His main
crop was sweet corn, and he was
one of the first sweet corn farmers in the area to have a corn harvester.
Clarence and Sadie had four
children, Benjamin, Beverlee,
Janet and Theodore. Clarence
and Sadie were blessed with 74
years of marriage before she

passed away on July 5, 2014. From


their children, Clarence has nine
grandchildren and 16 greatgrandchildren.
Clarence doesnt farm much
anymore. His sons manage the
Grovatt farm and rent the land to
the Russos. However, Clarence
still keeps farming in his life as
he has a small garden in his yard
and helped to plow the field earlier this year.
I never officially retired,
Clarence said. I just slowed
down.
Clarence said he is often asked
what his secret is to live to 100
years old and Clarence said he
has never smoked a cigarette or
drank hard liquor. He also exercises, eats many fruits and veggies, and sets priorities to do each
day. You can always see him working in the garden, mowing the
lawn or taking care of the buildings.
Live a clean life and keep
busyIf something needs to get
done, I do it. No sense worrying
about it, Clarence said.
For the future, Clarence said he
is going to keep doing what hes
always been doing.
Clarence has one cousin,
Melvin Grovatt, who is 102 years
old and another cousin, Olive
Grovatt, who will be 100 in the
fall.
