Each Monday we welcome you back to the work week with a look at what to expect in the Chathams. From content you'll find on Patch as the week goes on to community activities, here's what you need to know this week:
1) You need to know about the new police chief: The Chatham Township Committee approved Lt. Steven Hennelly to be the new police chief. While he officially started on Feb. 1, his swearing in ceremony will be at 6:30 p.m. Thursday. We'll bring you coverage.
2) You need to know about Valentine's Day: Where to buy flowers, where to go to dinner, and the best—and worst—Valentine's Day gifts you ever received.
3) You need to know about school elections: The Board of Education will vote on the particulars of this year's elections, which will be held on April 16. We'll bring you all the details as approved by the board.
4) You need to know about civic responsibility: No ordinances before the borough council this week, but plenty of resolutions recognizing past contributions by local volunteers and allowing for future events.
