Borough Honors Tony

Highlands Mayor Carolyn Broullon read this proclamation honoring former Councilman Anthony Bucco at last night's meeting of the Highlands Mayor and Council, and all members of council expressed their thanks and gratitude for Tony's services, not only for Highlands, but during World War II and through all the activities both he and Carol, his wife who died last year, have participated in for the borough. It's a very touching tribute to a very nice man, and touches on the many sides of him, from all the dedication and love he has for people, the nation and Highlands, as well as his love of an occasional glass of wine or two.
