Twilight at The Gazebo Concert Series

The Dumont Shade Tree Commission is happy to announce the return of our successful Twilight at the Gazebo Concert Series! This much anticipated second year begins on July 11, 2018  at 7:30pm at the Dumont Arboretum, West Shore Avenue in Dumont. Local performers, musicians, and poets are welcome to share their talents with the community on four consecutive Wednesday evenings.

The dates are as follows:

July 1, 2018
July 18 , 2018
July 25 , 2018 
August 1 , 2018

Even though the Arboretum was established in 2009, this beautiful meandering walkway in the heart of Dumont along West Shore Avenue has remained a hidden gem. The concert series is a way to bring the community out to enjoy the Arboretum and showcase the hidden talent of local performers.

New and seasoned performers who are interested in being part of this wonderful summer experience are invited to submit a request to event organizer Ray Slaman (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)

We look forward to sharing these summer evenings with you! Bring a chair, bring the whole family!

Note: there are no rain dates.

Dumont Cracked The Top 250!

Dumont ranked #193 in LendEDU’s new report ranking the best towns in New Jersey to find a deli.

LendEDU is based in Hoboken, New Jersey, and we realize how important it is to be surrounded by good delis. We thought it would be a cool idea to rank New Jersey towns according to how many delis they had per person, so we did it. And, Dumont cracked the top 250!

Using licensed data, LendEDU was able to find the exact number of delis and sandwich shops that existed in every town in New Jersey. We divided that number by the population of the town and the resulting number was LendEDU’s Deli Density Index.

The full report and methodology can be found here:

I encourage you to share Dumont’s recognition with the community through your website and social media. I have a feeling fellow New Jerseyans are going to take some pride in this.

Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program

PSE&G customers still have time to apply for LIHEAP to receive:

  • Heating benefits
  • Medically-necessary cooling benefits
  • Additional financial assistance of up to $450 in LIHEAP Emergency Assistance (for residential electric and gas heating customers who have already applied for, or received, LIHEAP benefits and are struggling to pay winter heating bills.)  For LIHEAP Emergency Assistance, customers must have a shut-off notice on their PSE&G account.


The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is taking applications until May 31, 2017.  In addition to financial assistance towards winter heating and medically necessary cooling bills, LIHEAP also screens program applicants for another payment assistance program, the Universal Service Fund (USF), which provides low income households with a monthly credit of $5 to $150.  There are also payment assistance programs for clients who are not low income, but have fallen behind on their energy bills.

Attached is a quick reference guide on all programs, as well as a LIHEAP application.

New Jersey Career Connections-Veterans Services

If you are a Veteran looking for work, collecting unemployment or your unemployment has recently ended, you may qualify for the Employer Partnership Grant On-The-Job Training Program.
